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.

As we recieved some requests for a general list of changes, the changelog released on Tuesday being for internal use, we have taken the time to review and rewrite it completely, to provide a clear overview of all the new and changed content in version 2.4.


On a final note, we here at the development team would like to extend a personal 'thank you' to both our testing team and our loyal fans. Without the continued dedication of these two groups to a mod that runs on a 6 year old game, the last 9 months of work would have been all for nothing. And it is for that we are truly grateful to all of our players. Thank you.

Last we have another Wallpaper, made by FatJoe, to keep you cool until Forgotten Hope 2.4 arrives tomorrow.


That's all for today, but be sure to come back tomorrow for the final update and the long-awaited release of FH 2.4. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel and our public forums to discuss this update and other news.

This is really great, but I have 2 Questions:

1) Which version of the M36 Jackson will there be, the M10 or Sherman Hull?

2) At minute 1:45 you can see a Jadgpanther! Is that a new unit (since I haven't seen it before in-game)? And if not, on what map can i find it!

m36 uses the m10 hull. Actually its not been shown in any news.
Jagdpanther is a new unit ya. Its on Meuse, Vossenack, may be some other as well.
