The Battle Grounds 2(BG2) is a Half-Life 2 multiplayer modification based on the revolutionary war. It is the sequel to the popular HL1 mod with even more features and possibilities. The British Army and its Native American tribal allies engage in battle against the United States Continental Army and local militia forces. Interactivity is a very important factor in this mod and team play is as important as ever before. Take aim and fire muskets, prepare bayonets and take control of the battlefield to succeed in your campaign for final victory. Combat will vary from long-range rifle marksmanship to brutal close quarters hand-to-hand melee fighting. You will need a mix of first person combat skills and quick-thinking strategy to survive. So prepare yourself to do battle for your side and to meet the enemy head-on. Only one side can be victorious.
With the release of 1.5a on Saturday, 26th of September, a lot of old maps will also get updated. This is bg_snowlake.
In this screenshot you can see that the new flag skins that people from the community contributed get added to a lot of maps to show the variety of units and forces that fought on the American side of the war. On the very right, a 3D-skybox with a small hill has been added to Snowlake.
