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.

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update. We'd like to start today's update with a trailer made by betatester Kubador. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

While you are watching the trailer, why not prepare yourself for tomorrow's release by downloading the passworded torrent files. The password to extract and install these files will be released tomorrow at the same time as the non-passworded direct download links. You will need a bittorrent program to download these files, many of these can be downloaded for free.

The following torrent contains everything you will need to play Forgotten Hope 2.45. Unfortunately, there is no patch from 2.4 to 2.45. The torrent contains two password protected RAR archives containing the installers, when the time comes you will need to extract both and install them.

Download the Forgotten Hope 2.45 Pre-Release Torrent

Remember, you will not be able to access the actual files until this Friday. If you do not wish to download these torrent files, you can wait until Friday at 18:00 GMT to download the un-passworded files from a list of mirror sites.

If you are a server administrator and would like to have your server up and running by this Friday for the release, you can download the necessary files here.
