Battlefield 1943 is a remake of the Windows game Battlefield 1942. Battlefield 1943 is a multiplayer-only first person shooter set in the pacific theater. The player can choose to fight on either the US or Japanese side and must capture and hold certain points on remade pacific island maps from Battlefield 1942.

At the start of a round (or after being killed), the player can choose between three classes: infantryman, rifleman and scout. The difference between the classes lies in the armament: for example, scouts possess a sniper rifle while infantry soldiers are equipped with an anti-tank gun. The player is also able to use any vehicle, boat and airplane they find in the game.

Improvements over the original Battlefield 1942 game include awards, ranks the player can gain, destructible buildings and an air strike that can be called in from a special building on the map.

On its launch date, it was reported by DICE that users had accumulated over 5 million kills and logged in over 29 years worth of game time alone.


There are a few easter eggs located throughout the maps, most of which consist of sand castles on small islands off of the coast of the larger islands. However, on a island at the Iwo Jima map, players can come across a small beach in which is written "HAGGARD WAS HERE". This refers to Haggard from Battlefield: Bad Company in which this game was preceded by.
