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.

This Sunday is the tenth anniversary of The Battle Grounds II. To mark this special occasion I thought I would show some of the recent developments and work from the Dev team.

Every single official map has been updated in some way, with new shadows, lighting and models. Some of these changes have resulted in old maps looking dramatically different, like Plateau:

Some of the maps, like Bg_Fall, have had small changes made to enhance the gameplay and improve the graphics.

Additionally we have a completely new map for this release, CTF_Road.

You can see more screenshots of CTF_Road and read more about it over at our website, Bg2mod.com That website will play a greater role in the new release, since we plan to add a webpage with descriptions and stories for each map drawn from real, historical places to lend a more historical and dynamic flavour to each map, rather than just having generic names.

We have recently added in new models as well, there is of course the Swivel Gun:

A nasty piece of work loaded with grapeshot that sweeps enemies away.

It wouldn't be Battle Grounds if you couldn't slice your foes up, so I'm pleased to show off some of our new edged weaponry, starting with the new British officer Sword (WIP).

And finally the Native has a new tomahawk to hack away with:

Ten years is a long time for any game to go on for, let alone a free mod based on Valve's Source engine. The community has had it's ups and downs but it's kept going, and the community keeps it alive, it's been great to spend so many years with the Bg2 community. So here's to all you Battle Grounds II players, may your shots fly true and may you always get headstabs!

I won't commit to a specific time date, however I can say it will be soon. We will open up public testing soon as well, so we can iron out all the kinks before the full release.

finally found a couple of servers with players, was told to leave every server because of 'training' and not wanting to join clan. would like to see it greenlit so more players can get in and have more servers without being told to leave so the clan can train.

Uninstalling for now until it is distributed through steam and more players are active.

Yeah it really depends on the time... just later today we held a big public linebattle on the same server (I'm in that clan).

But yes, hopefully we can get the game on steam.

You guys need to work on this game and get it on Steam Workshop. I feel it will bring back a lot of the OG players and new ones. Happen with Double Action it could also work with BG. List it on steam as a free game people will automatically flock to it lol.

Indeed! Like I always say when I'm admining linebattles, this game is not a movie. It's a real battle that must be fought hard and won!

I played this just the other day, and there was still a populated server with 20 people in it. Great to see that there's still some players around!
