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 now have an official work in progress test server up.

Thanks to the help of Dev Team member NewRoob/Adman and BG player Venge, we now have an official SVN test server to test the latest release candidates for the next version.
If you have not used our SVN framework before, you can learn about it here:
Using SVN is simple-- follow the directions in the link above to setup and download our latest work in progress. Connect to the Official Test Server, or create your own to sample the work in progress. As of 3/29/11 the work is partly done, with some finishing and additions still to make for the next version. However, thanks to Venge and Roob, we have a nice place to test.
