Electronic Arts has announced that the Battlefield 3 Premium program has been purchased by 2 million people. To celebrate this milestone, the company is offering Battlefield 1942 for free through Origin on PC.

“When we launched Battlefield 1942 ten years ago, we had lofty ambitions to create a first-person shooter that would push the boundaries of innovation, creativity and design,” said DICE VP and general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson. “We evolved the FPS gameplay by introducing the world to all-out warfare via land, air and sea.”
