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 rather important update for you. We would like to announce that the first Eastern Front map to feature in the next update will be Dukla Pass.

Unlike most of our previous maps, the announcement of Dukla Pass may not come completely as a surprise to many of you. Ts4EVER, who created it, has also kept a blog of his progress. You can read it here.

On the 8th of September 1944, elements of the 1st and 4th Ukrainian Front began an offensive through the Carpathian mountains with the aim of gaining their first foothold in Slovakia and supporting a resistance uprising there. What was supposed to take a handful of days dragged out into many weeks as Soviet forces ran up against stiff resistance from the 1st Panzer Army and 1st Hungarian Army. On the 25th of October, a major tank battle broke out in the valleys west of the village of Dobroslava, as Soviet forces tried to outflank remaining German positions. The fighting was fierce enough that the area came to be known as The Valley of Death.

You all realize this is really a multiplayer mod right? As in its not their fault the AI is bad and theres really jack **** they can do about it? Well learn. Dont post dumb crap like "the AI is terrible omg LOL!@11" we ALL know ALL the battlefield games have terrible AI, you arnt sharing anything new. This is a great sequal to a great BF1942 mod, so exit that singleplayer match and find a server.

the reason why i play against bots was because Forgotten hope 1 had EPIC single player that i loved and played for hours. i have not tried out online yet (busy with other games) and i have no doubt that it is sweet. i am unhappy with single player and i hope they fix it to the level of the old Forgotten hope so me and my friend can enjoy some Co-op between online matches

Seriously, wtf are you guys doing judging the mod by its singleplayer. The AI in BF2 is RETARDED, like some of the posters here :p like kev4000 said, just go out and buy BF2 so you can enjoy this online like you're supposed to, the singleplayer compenent is just there to satisfy the unfortunate 56kers who can't get online.

Why are people playing against bots? I really hate how people have a pirated copy of BF2 that doesn't work online, go play this modification against BOTS then judge the game based on that. Of course the bots are retarded! This is the battlefield series we're talking about. Online this mod is the most proffesional to date, and the gameplay is just amazing (online :P). For those who are playing against bots, just go buy the game for 10$, it is worth it.

ever think about using the SP for practice, huh? oh yeah and for people who keep saying that these AWESOME MODS (which this one is just phonaimnal) should be play only online is WAY wrong, in many ways. The number one reason i try to avoid online play is cause some people use online as an excuse to bully and terrorize others, also, no one ever uses there guns when on foot, its always explosive ***** like every damn time (tanks expected) oh and one last thing, the AI i play with arn't retarded, they acully are quite good and helps me practice for when i decide to really go online. There's SP in these mod(s) for some reasons, my reason is sometimes for practice.

I don't see the big deal, it looks like less graphically appealing version of bf2 set in 1942, and just plays like utter crap. AI in the game is maybe the worst I have seen in any game released after 1991.

i think the AI's are pretty crap to be perfectly honest. most of them act like idiots and the few that actually do something get shot from a very long way away and die from 1 hit (i dont think thats a bad thing its just that coupled with the stupid AI means the player is basically by himself)
i played all the maps and some are better than others.

aside from the little problems its a damn good mod and can only get better

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.
