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.

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!

Servers are most populated on American afternoons and European evenings. At that time there's usually a server that has a least a 5v5 going if not more.

I remember playing this mod back in 2010 and its good to see that the developers are still updating the mod, however seems like there isn't many people playing at all. I'm still going to download this and play the hell out of it, good luck on the future of mod devs and I hope that this mod gets popular again within the year.

It will be popular again after 2.3 is green lighted, that is as long as '76 doesn't come back and troll new players.
