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.

6 comments by William_Hawke on Apr 19th, 2014

Two hundred and thirty nine years ago, on April 19th the first shot of the American War for Independence was fired on the green at Lexington and Concord. It was a shot famously said to have been heard around the world, and by way of honouring this special anniversary we decided to share the latest in Battlegrounds 2 development.

We are pleased to welcome a new addition to our small development team. PhilmacFLy joined us in March this year as a coder, and we are very excited to have him on board. 

Currently downloads for BG 2.2 stand at 5,065 on moddb alone. These numbers show that Bg2 is still as alive as it ever was, and these numbers have certainly inspired us to keep up with development. The focus of the team is shifting from large updates, to smaller more manageable patches. We hope that this will allow us to get new content out quicker, without waiting so long between updates.

The most exciting piece of news is that with the influx of new coding talent, we have begun the process of porting the mod over to Source SDK base 2013. This will insure that bg2 is playable for the foreseeable future, and will hopefully allow us to expand on the mod in new and exciting ways. 

The rest of the team is busily cracking away at all the various models, maps, textures and effects that need replaced or updated and I'm pleased to offer a sneak peek at an early WIP model here.

This model is an early WIP remake of the Native's trusty Tomahawk, and  will be finished with the latest patch.

We have quite a few updates planned for the future, so if your battle cry be "For King George and Britain!" or the cry of "Freedom!" keep your eyes open, revolution is on the horizon.

This mod is amazing from every stand point, what an achievement! you guys should be proud of yourselves, and don't listen to these people that say the graphics suck,I think they are very well done and im sure about 70 percent of them have never been on a mod team in there life.

He is just a hater.This mod doesn't use HL2 to the fullest potential.I think HL2 has the best use of physics,shaders,facial expressions even lighting.

Natace, you are an idiot for not recognizing HL2's graphics for how great they are.
Of course, there are games with better graphics, but thats only because HL2 has been out for a while.

And if you think HL2 sucks, then there are about 10 million people that disagree with you.

And they cant ALL be wrong, now can they?

Nice mod, one of my favs so far

But I rather have it show how many kills instead of how much damg : /.The damg done is useless please replace it with kills.

NAtace rember that games graphics are better in different sections, for example battlefield 2s rockets back gas still goes though walls and choppers and farcrys face features never were a pretty sight.

Once HL2 has the motion blur Color filtering and hopefuly depth of feild you'll be surprised how good it looks. Source is capable of more than HL2, consider Hl2 a datum for mods. Not saying your wrong just your very harsh.

Sections, Tasman :)
