Codename Eagle

Codename Eagle is an open-world multiplayer first person shooter with drivable land, air and sea vehicles. A precursor to the Battlefield series, it was originally released in 1999 by Refraction Games, a studio that was purchased by DICE shortly after Codename Eagle's release. Battlefield: 1942 was then developed using an updated version of Codename Eagle's Refractor engine, Refractor 2.

The original Refractor engine was much more arcade-style in terms of its physics, which gave Codename Eagle its signature elements such as "wing walking" while flying bomber planes and other goofy antics. This made for an extremely entertaining multiplayer experience that was as much funny as it was fun - an experience that was never replicated to this day. The Battlefield series took things in a quasi-realistic direction, moving away from the pure arcade-style silliness. Thus, Codename Eagle multiplayer remains a unique and top-tier multiplayer experience - even today.
