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.
We are currently taking up donations to procure and maintain a test server devoted strictly to beta testing the next version(s) of BG2.

We are currently taking up donations to procure and maintain a test server devoted strictly to beta testing the next version(s) of BG2. However getting and maintaining a server requires money. Several Devs have put up starting funds, but we also welcome donations from players and others in the BG community to help keep BG going. The test server will be an open, public server where people can come and test the new version of BG using the SVN framework (see the SVN How To thread in the Betatesting forum).
If you wish to donate, you can send money via Paypal to
We thank everyone who has donated so far hope to keep the donations coming from everyone in order to get the Beta test server up.
