The Battle Grounds(BG) is a Half-Life Modification based on the Revolutionary War. You and your teammates will have to act together strategically to fight the enemy teams. It will be team based game play.

In Bg you can play as a solider in two teams:

1. The Royal British Army
2. The Colonial United States Continental Army

For each side you will have a choice of several classes, each with their own individual style and unique playing feel.

More details will be added later as our source feature list is fleshed out

Thanks to our outstanding community, Battle Grounds: Source, BG2, has started to come together. Early versions of BG2 can be found in the forums, here. BG2 or BG:S at the moment is a simple port of BG1 (for Half-Life 1) with the exception of maps. Special thanks to Tjoppen for doing most of the code work on BG2.

The mapping community has just started to release new maps for BG2 and we look forward to more maps in the future. Pr3dator has started working on his own BG2 maps. His first creation for BG2 is bg_koth. This king of the hill map is complete with a 3d skybox, entrenchments, and fully functional capture areas. The map's open atmosphere sets a standard for Battle Grounds: Source. Pr3dator's next project is porting the historical bg_lexington to BG2. See some snapshots of the current bg_koth build in action, below.

As of right now there's one server in the game, owned by Sesame Street clan. BG1 is somewhat dead, but we still play it from time to time. You might as well find about 10 people on friday nights.
