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.

Before we begin, the whole team would like to thank our fans for all their support, and to wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year!

This time hiding away under the tree, is a render of a vehicle that brought destruction from the sky. The Junkers Ju 87 G-1, also know as the Kanonenvogel.

Junkers Ju 87G-1

The large numbers of Soviet tanks that had shown up on the Eastern Front had lead to the requirement for dedicated antitank aircraft. The first such design was the Henschal Hs 129, but while it proved a potent weapon, it had large and vulnerable fuel tanks and a replacement was requested.

It was decided to further develop the Ju 87, arming it with 30mm cannon and providing more armour. The Stuka ace Hans-Ulrich Rudel had had some success at killing Soviet tanks with 20mm cannon, and suggested using two 37mm Flak 18 guns in external pods as a primary armament. First flown in January 1943 on a converted D-1, the Bordkanone BK 3,7 would prove to be a lethal tank killer in the hands of Rudel and other Stuka aces.

Our Kanonenvogel (cannon bird) was made by K98, AceS and Herc.

The guys over at [762], Forgotten Honor and World at War have got together to make a mappack featuring 17 of their best custom maps. They can be downloaded now and played on the [762]#2 server. Find out more here.

Our winners for this week's screenshot competition is SzalonyGolibroda. 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.

This is great mod, not too realistic but not too arcade. Some maps are too laggy, like Crete. You should do something to it. Great mod anyways.

Punk buster keeps kicking me after playing this on a server for more than 5 minutes due to "Disallowed drivers." I've updated my nvidia drivers and punkbuster to no avail. Normal BF2 runs fine, is this some sort of bug?

If you're running BF2 with Steam. Don't, it detects it as a disallowed driver.

Its realistic up to a point. Rifles are one shot kills, AT ordinance has realistic penetration vs tanks, not everyone can have MGs and SMGs, etc. However, the main aim is historical accuracy, which is why it differs from PR in many ways: one man tanks, short spawns, very little forced teamplay. On the last point, there is a lot of teamplay that goes on in servers because many maps are impossible without it, but its silent and instinctive teamwork.

Try it. Theres nothing to loose and a whole lot to gain.

Know about it: yes. Played it outside SP: No. There is only one majorly populated server currently, which is Hslan. Rules for that are pretty simple: no uncap attack unless flying, no perposful TKs, no Nazi themed nicks.

Tank squads sometimes pop up on larger maps. I've never seen a sniper squad - generally they go off alone. You might also see an arty squad for gunners and spotters. Otherwise, I'd suggest trying to get into a named squad: Teamwork squad is usually the best.

No one knows. The BF2 news box says 'soon', and the devs hav said at least 2-3 months, maybe more. General sentiment has been for a release about mid September, but I wouldn't be suprised if it was nearer to Christmas. All we can do is wait...

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.
