Forgotten Hope 2 is an award-winning World War II modification for Battlefield 2TM and is based on the original Forgotten Hope, a modification for Battlefield 1942TM, one of the most popular multiplayer games ever. Battlefield 1942TM featured land, sea and air combat in a way never before seen. It was the goal of the development team to maximize the game experience by adding both a realistic and enjoyable gameplay to FH and now to FH2.

With the release of Electronic ArtsTM Battlefield 2TM, the development potential has increased a lot. An all-new game engine and physics system brings the battlefield to life like never before. The new material penetration feature measures weapons ability to fire through barriers based on their composition and players will need to know the difference between concealment and cover in order to survive. Immense, richly detailed environments from city streets to remote forests, brought to you with brilliant graphics are some of the more exciting features of Battlefield 2TM. And we are going to bring all this to the Second World War.

With over 250 new pieces of authentic equipment, with tanks such as the mighty German Tiger tank and the diminutive British Vickers light tank, aircraft from the famed American P-51 Mustang to the antiquated German Stuka dive-bomber, and weapons including the powerful German Panzerfaust and the fearsome American M-1 Garand rifle, Forgotten Hope 2 has a wider scope than any other Second World War First Person Shooter, ever!

Winston Churchill once said "It is a mistake to look too far ahead. Only one link in the chain of destiny can be handled at a time." But we do look far ahead. The end of our road has not changed, only the stops along the way. Forgotten Hope 2 currently concentrates the battles fought between Allied and Axis powers in the North African and Normandy theaters of operation.

You will be given the chance to take part in maybe the most important campaigns of World War II. Fight alongside Rommel's Africa Corps in the harsh climates of the North African desert as you attempt to break through the British lines at El Alamein, or hold off attacking forces at Tunis. Serve next to American forces as you seek to destroy Hitler's Atlantic Wall at the cliffs of Pointe du Hoc, or break out from the Norman countryside in Operation Cobra.

"The battle which is about to begin will be one of the most important battles in history. It will be the turning point of the war." But it will only be the end of the beginning for Forgotten Hope 2. We will be ever expanding the mod to all of the theaters its prequel currently occupies, and more.

Whatever the side you choose you will have an almost endless armory at your disposal. Your weaponry will reach from knives to heavy machine guns to anti-tank rifles. Your equipment will contain everything from the first aid kit to magnetic hollow charges. Your motor pool will offer any type of vehicle, whether you want to drive jeeps, APCs, or tanks, and your airfields will give you the chance to pilot scout planes, fighters, and heavy cargo planes.

Forgotten Hope 2 will also offer different gamemodes for different situations. In addition to the standard conquest maps Battlefield is famous for, you will also need to destroy or defend strategic targets in objective-mode, or take tactical positions in a set order in push mode.

So whether you like house to house fighting in Tunis, tank battles in the African desert or dogfights in skies over northern England, Forgotten Hope 2 will have something for you.

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we are showing of our second Eastern Front map: Arad. This map has been made by hitm4k3r, and was inspired by the Red Orchestra map of the same name.

Arad Arad

On the 14th of September 1944, the 2nd Ukrainian Front under General Malinovsky launched it's own Belgrade Offensive in conjunction with the 3rd Ukrainian Front. Six days later Arad was captured by Romanian and Soviet troops after engagements with Hungarian forces. By the end of September 1944, Malinovsky and General Friessner had received new orders. Malinovsky was now ordered to attack towards Budapest from the salient to the south around Arad, meanwhile Friessner's orders included an attack from Oradea to slice through the Soviet lines and capture the Carpathian passes. With the start of the Battle of Debrecen on the 6th of October 1944, Malinovsky's southern pincer was attacking near Arad slicing through the Hungarian Third Army. The attack by the northern 2nd Ukrainian Front pincer ran into difficulty quickly though, colliding with two panzer divisions of the German III Panzer Corps - the 1st and 23rd Panzer Division.

I see that WAW is releasing a Pacific Theater beta test!? It looks awesome! Any chance this will make it into FH2 one day? Keep up the great work guys.

I was about to say that! I have downloaded the map just to check the models of the weapons and vehicles (and the maps themselves, of course) and everything looks great, but they don't support SP gameplay. I wonder if the FH2 team could make those maps official, since it would mean adding an entire new faction (Japan).

Historically correct, crude and with lots of violence, completely realistic, action in the most pure level, what else can be said about it? one of the most biggest, and in my opinion, greatest modifications ever done for BF2, brings us the real feeling of the WW2 and makes us feel like if we are there. Epic.
