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 have a couple of renders of Soviet heavy hitters. Stalin referred to artillery as "a god of modern war", and the 122mm Howitzer M1938 (M-30) and the 120mm M1943 mortar (PM-43) are certainly no lightweights.

122mm Howitzer M1938


In the early 1930's, the Red Army was still equipped with two pre First World War 122mm howitzer designs, and though these would be modernised they were still not satisfactory. There were some thoughts of switching to a 105mm piece similar to other nations, but this would have required too much new manufacture and was dropped. In 1938 there were three competing designs, the U-2, the F-25, and the ultimate winner, the M-30.

The M-30 was a very successful design, being manufactured from 1939 through to 1955. It would lend its barrel to the SU-122 self propelled gun and its carriage to the 152mm howitzer M1943. Nearly 17000 were made before the end of the war, and ours was made by Kraetzer.

PM-43 120mm Mortar


The 120mm M1938 mortar was a relatively unremarkable design when compared to other mortars. The M1943 modification added only a shock absorber to the bipod mounting to lessen the effect of recoil forces. It was, however, a very successful weapon.

It was easy to move despite its weight, having a wheeled trailer that it could very quickly be attached and detached from. The HE bombs were powerful and the mortar was occasionally used for missions usually assigned to howitzers. The Germans were impressed enough to use captured weapons, and also produced their own direct copy as the 12 cm GrW 42. The M1943 was not replaced in service with the USSR until 1981, and many are still in use today. Ours was made by Fred.


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.

I think they'll wait a bit and see if there is any fallout from PR going standalone. Seems okay so far though.

Once again EA is 100% ok with PR going standalone lol. BF2 is a 10 year old game. They gave all the DLC away for free 5 years ago then dropped online support for it a month ago. Hell I got BF2 for free when I bought medal of honour airborne when that came out.

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.
