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.

Hello all!

As you know we've been working on a big update for Battle Grounds, porting it over to the 2013 version of Source and including new features like swivel guns, graphical upgrades and a brand new main menu with a community news feed. Today we are announcing a small, upcoming patch for BG 2.2 which is the first step of rolling out this new content.

The goal of this patch is to try out the main menu and news feed, so that we can test it with the community and polish it for the eventual BG2 3.0 release on Source 2013. In addition to that we have made some long overdue bug-fixes and performance improvements for the current version as well as some extra goodies.

You can expect the new patch within the next week, so keep an eye out!

The main menu with news feed and community updates. With this feed the dev team will be able to post updates directly to the community. Additionally community leaders will be able to post their own updates on clan battles and special, community organized events.

A new and improved loading screen with tips and suggestions on game-play and game modes in the mod.

A long requested community feature is finally here. Information and stats on the many musket types in the game. These weapon cards list vital information like reload speed, accuracy and damage.

Also on offer is a new infantry uniform for the British regulars. Based on the coat facings of the 47th Lancashire regiment, this new coat brings the uniform options up to an equal number of three for both the British and the Americans.

Finally we have a game-play change to one of our maps, Bg_Trenton. This option allows rooftop access along a line of scaffolding, offering the prefect vantage point to rain down musket fire on the square below.

We hope you enjoy this small patch while you wait for the next major update, Battle Grounds 2 Version 3.0

I think you guys should put it on steam green light because me and my friend were playing in a server where there were only 5 people but later 9 more people joined and we made a line battle with 14 people I think if you guys put it on steam green light it will have some full servers this mod has potential use that potential :)

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!
