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.

The M4A3E8 had wider tracks, and there were also extensions for snowy conditions that fit the normal tracks. The latter probably not included to save development time.

Australians were separate to NZ troops. Was one of the conditions of the AEF that they would not be separated into other units. I think.

Anyway, Aussies are on Bardia, Giarabub and Tunis, NZ on Olympus (and one day on Hyacinth (hopefully)).

Hi,
I'm having a major problem with mine, it installed fine, but when I click the fh2 icon, I get about 6 error messages saying: "Failed to move shaders_client.zip (to the new map location) may need to run higher privileged user, then the game loads and it says I need to use the fh2.exe (which I am) and I have to exit. Someone please help!

I can now run it by loading bf2 and clicking community, but if I aim down the sights the graphics go grey and it glitches and warps all over the place and you cant aim. it only happens on foot with all weapons not in vheicles or aircraft. Also why is the spawn timer 20secs? Thats way too long.

The wavy ironsights are because you are using BF2 shaders. If you start via FH2.exe (run it in XP mode with admin rights) this problem should not happen. If it still does, refer to the common problems sticky thread here: Fhpubforum.warumdarum.de

Respawn timer works in waves. Every 15 seconds, you get a window of 7 seconds to spawn. Minimum time to wait is 10 seconds, max time is ~25s.

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.
