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 showcasing some equipment that you will be able to find on our upcoming map Pegasus. You might perhaps have seen them in the stream, which is available on Youtube. They are of course the Sten Mk.V and the SOMUA S35.


Although French military thinking called for a defensive war, they recognised the need to be able to fight on the offensive as well. This job fell to the Cavalry, who in 1931 placed a request for a fast tank. By 1934, the request had been updated to be immune from contemporary anti tank guns. The Société d'Outillage Mécanique et d'Usinage d'Artillerie, or SOMUA for short, produced a series of prototypes in 1935, with an order for 50 following the next year.

The tank was one of the first to make use of large cast sections for the hull, and was also fitted with the cast APX-1 turret from the Infantry's Char B1. The 47mm SA35 gun was more than able to defeat the PzIII and BT-7, and these contemporaries couldn't hope to harm the S35 in return. There were however several problems with the S35 that stopped it from being a war winner. It was expensive and time consuming to make, it had poor mechanical reliability, and the turret was both single manned and had no openable cupola, forcing the overworked commander to fight buttoned up.

After the fall of France, about 100 S35 tanks were in Vichy hands while nearly 300 were captured by the Germans. Many of these captured tanks were put into service as Pz 35-S 739(f), where they served in Finland, Yugoslavia and a few were to be found in Normandy. Although hopelessly outclassed by 1945, 12 were still in use at the start of the year. The S35 was made by Seth Soldier, and was repainted for German use by Gurdy.

Sten Mk.V

The Mk.V version of the Sten was little more than a better quality Mk.II with some cosmetic additions. A wooden stock and pistol grip replaced the steel skeleton stock, new front sights taken from the No.4 rifle were added and a rather flimsy wooden front handhold was clipped to the barrel shroud. Our Sten Mk.V was made by KittyThePwner, who modified the original Mk.II model made by Hail of Nails and Seth Soldier.

Our winners for this week's screenshot competition is Matthew_Baker. You can view the winning submission here.

We are now accepting entries for the week of December 29th. If you think you have the best FH2 screenshot, post them href="">here.

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.

yo, i am actually new to this mod, i accidentaly but gladly stumbled on this mod. I love Battlefield 1942, even though the graphics are old comapred to Battlefield 2, with little faith in battlefield 1943 i long for a new battlefield 1942 with atleast battlefield 2 graphics. This thus seems like a sign from heaven. Just a few questions, i see UK, USA and Germany, are there plans to include like Russia, Japan, Itally perhaps even some less influential countries like China, Netherlands, Belgium and god knows what other countries (ok last 3 might be a little too much to ask, but its just a few i came up with quickly. Anyway looks cool, i am in love with the AIX mod for BF2 but this could become my second favorite if its as well made as that one, downloading now to see if my hopes are not too much :D and GL improvinf this. Battlefield ftw!

Countries in the mod now are Germany and Italy for the Axis and USA, Britain, Australia and Canada for the Allies. Other countries are expected, but there is no consensus yet on what the next theatre of war will be. I personally would also love to see the Chinese front - but we can all dream.

I'm having an issue, where zooming in makes the view black & white and a bit erratic. Has anyone had this issue with BF2? It's happened to mine before, not sure how to fix it though.

My god!! I´ve been playing Fh for a loooong, loooong time now and this is... just amazing.
So much for cheer ;)

I have to say my version is a bit buggy, OP Aberdeen doesn´t work at all, OP Goodwood crashes after some time, and some random crashes in the other maps...

any idea?

Are you playing single player or multiplayer?

I've heard the singleplayer is still a bit buggy on some maps but the multiplayer is very stable in my experience.

You got me, it´s in singleplayer, because no one likes me, therefore i play singleplayer, naaah just kidd´n, i´ll have some matches(mmh, how in the hell do i have to think of matchsticks...?) however, since the patch you can´t start a multiplayer game in conquest mode and set the max. player count to 1 and then capture the flags... so then the old way via the dedicated(or how it´s spelled)

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 most biggest, and in my opinion, greatest modifications ever done for BF2, brings us the real feeling of the WW2 and makes us feel like if we are there. Epic.
