Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

As you can tell by the above banner, we now have a concrete release day. We hope to see you all on the servers on:

Monday 8th February 2016

First things first: we'd like to show the amazing trailer for version 2.5 made by Hawky:

There have been a number of improvements made to some of the gameplay mechanics. Most notably to the artillery spotting system. You will now be able to see the name of your spotter, and the system will prefer to automatically change to a new spot made by the same spotter instead of just the next spot in the queue. Additionally, there is a new camera position for mobile artillery and the behaviour of all artillery cameras has been improved.

A new push variant called Adaptive Push has been added. In this mode you will be able to bypass flags that normally would need to be captured to advance. These pocket flags will become isolated and easy to overrun - but watch out, the defenders will have a 60 second window to recapture it so make sure it is secure before moving on! You'll find this mode on Battle of Brest and Pegasus.

Finnish Army

Even though Finland was a small nation of 4 million inhabitants, it fought three distinct wars during World War 2 and managed to defend its independence in the post war world, in stark contrast to other nations in the Soviet sphere of influence. The first one, the Winter War, was fought in 1939 and 1940 against an overwhelming Soviet invasion and ended with the loss of territory to Russia. The Continuation War of 1941 saw Finland fight at the side of Germany in order to regain these regions, making it the only democracy in the Axis camp. In September 1944 Finland signed a separate peace with the Soviets, on the condition that they expel all German forces from their territory. This was achieved in the Lapland war, raging until early 1945. Our Finnish Army playermodels were made by the combined efforts of Zero, Stubbfan, Kev4000 and Roughbeak.

Ts4EVER has also posted a nice overview of the 5 maps featured in this update, check out his devblog here.

Finally today, we'd like to list some of the changes in version 2.5:

Not a real fan of BF games but I did played it a little during the prime of BF1942 but I was just using bots and boy those where some crappy bots but
just downloaded BF2 out of curiosity, the bots here are much better and I can even play it online with my fellow non-steamers hehe COOL!!!

Only thing I noticed about BF2 since I play AIRSOFT some years back is that the guns feels and fires like airsof guns haha but it's fine. May be project reality fixes that a little.

Try 'The Last War' mod, nice effects and much higher weapon damage. Or I can tell you how to increase weapon damage if you like, it's pretty easy.

Also, if you like WWII games the Forgotten Hope 2 mod for BF2 is a MUST!

Saluti da Gatto :-)

P.S. I run my own airsoft club here in Italy

Cool! Hi to all airsofters there at Italy. I really miss playing but our stupid politicans has added airsoft on their stupid gunban list so no games for us this coming months.

Yeah FH2 is awesome got the version 48 already although I play DOD and DODS this is really a refreshing more slower paced and superbly made.

Now searching for good Vietnam mods I think it's on PR release.
