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.

A Blast from the Past

News 1 comment

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we have a render showing a new weapon that you'll be able to use in the upcoming version 2.52, and since everyone loves hunting for easter eggs we thought we'd show you something that you can hide for the other team to find.

Tellermine 43


The tellermine 43 was a simplification of the 42 model. Compared to the 35 model they were less sensitive and had smaller pressure plates making them less prone to premature detonation.

Now, I'm sure many of you are wondering in what way a render made over ten years ago can be considered new. But, as I'm sure you've guessed, the humble tellermine 43 never quite made it into the game. Until now that is. Thanks to the animation work of 2cool2fool you'll finally be able to play with ctz's other toy.


That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next time for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel, our public forums, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.

Hello!

So far, I played with this mod for about 30+ hours and to be honest with you guys, I think this is the best WWII mod that you can find out in the mod forums of BF2 or even other games! The variety of vehicles and the variety of large maps make the mod unique to others!I mostly play SP because there are not much players in MP but that's fine by me! It is worth downloading for people who love WWII and BF2! Have Fun everybody! ;) :)

Big thanks to the Developers of this mod! Keep on going Devs! You've done amazing job! ;)

Thanks for the kind words! Glad you enjoy it. You seem to be from Greece in which case the 762 servers should be filled up pretty good most evenings.

They don't have official singleplayer support. There is an unofficial fan patch on the forums though.

What should i do to play this awesome mod? I do not own the BF 2 on steam and neither does steam let me buy this game. Are there any Asian servers? Are there enough players playing the multiplayer?

You could try to help me advertising for a standalone version of FH2, like PR2 did.
Forgottenhope.warumdarum.de
there you can see how many players are online.
not enough for a multiplayer shooter of this quality.
dont hope for asian servers. Look RIGHT NOW there are 21 Players on 1 server. There arent enough players to fill ONE 32/64 Players Server. And the devs dont make anything to increase their playerbase. PR devs did , and thats why they have currently 526 Players on their Servers. Dayly.
It makes me really angry to see this game going down.
There is a solution. And the devs only need to grab it.
But everyone says: NO, We cant do that, because EA have the rights of BF2. But if you ask, why PR2 is Standalone and dont have any problems with EA, you wont get a good answer.
Wake up Devs. you know there is no other solution.
Games need an active playerbase with more than 250 players . Do something. PR2 will have a longer life than FH2! They are independent with their Standallone, so noone need to crack the game or buy it at Ebay because you cant get it official anymore.
No game can survive without players, and players cant join if they cant buy the game. Think about all the content for FH1 you made. How many players playing it now ??? How many players play bf1942 anymore after EA shot it down??? The same will happen with FH2, if you dont do something
!!!! FH is dying and only the devs can stop that. But please hurry up, or its too late !!!

Oh the melodrama... People have been screaming at me that FH2 is dying ever since before 2.0 was released. Player numbers are basically stable for years now. BF2 can be downloaded for free already. If you expect 1000s of new players from standalone you would be very disappointed.
Also pretty rich to say "the devs are doing nothing". Very nice for all those people still working on the mod for free while our pointless consumers complain in comment and forum threads.

I didnt say they dont do anything. I said they dont do anything against the loss of players.i play fh since bf1942 and if the devs didnt do anything, i wouldnt be here. The problem is not the mod but the fact BF2 isnt available by official sources.
yes the mod wont dye tomorrow, but all the new players ,interested in this mod dont have the chance to join. And its better to make a standalone for new players. I mean PR did it. they found an easy way around this problem. isnt there any way to make a deal with the PR guys? They have a working standallone. Compared to the situartion now: isnt a working standalone better than a modification of a game that isnt sell anywere anymore?
you only need the PR version and make it workable with FH.im sure the PRguys will help you and give you the standalone.

You can easily get BF2 for free. The only people who "don't have a chance to join" are people to retarded to download BF2 from battlelog, and I am pretty sure those would be overwhelmed by installing PR or FH2 as well.

That`s everything you can say?
You didnt understand. The ability of getting bf2 from battlelog wont increase the playerbase at all.The main reason i am writing is , that there arent enough players on the servers anymore, to simulate a war !!! . Do you really think, everyone who want play this mod, downloads bf2 from websides they dont trust? (one reason )
look at bf1942. would you download bf1942 from the next best webside, only to play FHSW , or BG42 , or bf1918 or DC or FH ? It wont increase the playerbase.
Another idea would be if you make FH2 moddable to PR2. Thats easyer to get than bf2. (but if that happens FH2 stays a mod)
bf2 dies, like bf1942 ,and one of the mainreasons FH dies too, is because bf2 dies.
PR2 dont die(not the next years) because they dont need bf2 anymore.
The playerbase nowadays in fh2 is ways too small for a war game, and it only can get smaller and smaller over the years, PR also will die (no question) but they have a bigger playerbase. =their game have a longer life.


But please there is no reason to call the community , new members , Fh 1 veterans or anyone other retarded ideots.

Why would they trust standalone Fh2 or PR over battlelog? Both would be equally illegal. And if they don't download it because of low player numbers, why would they download standalone FH2? And what exactly makes PR easier to get than battlelog BF2? In both cases you need to download files from a website.

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 biggest, and in my opinion, greatest modifications ever done for BF2, brings us the real feeling of the WW2. Epic.
