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.

We find ourselves once again at the end of another year. As always, the team would like to extend a huge thank you to all our players, fans, betatesters and developers who have stood by us in 2015. We'd also like to extend a big thanks to the team at ModDB for giving us an honourable mention in their Editors Choice awards for Mod of the Year.


We know some of you might have expected a release of the Eastern Front at the end of this year. Sadly, this has not come to pass. There are two main reasons for this. We want to release a mod that is as polished and functional as possible, without bugs like the infamous invincible bicycle or server crashing aa truck that have plagued earlier releases. 2.5 will contain 5 new maps and countless new assets, including 19 new vehicles. This isn't even counting hand weapons, 2 completely new player model sets and new buildings and other statics. Our team is not as big as it used to be, so the load of this work rests on very few shoulders.

In addition to this, FH 2.5 will contain lots of new code, including a reworked artillery system, fixed exploits and a completely new push mode (more on that in a later update). We are working on these issues and hope to be able to release Forgotten Hope 2.5 as soon as possible in the new year!


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 spamming of "standalone" would stop, if the devs gave a comprehended answare to its community. (to US)
There are many people, who want to see a standalone (like me ) because BF2 is no longer for sale and the playerbase CANT get increased. These people (i)want to play this game in 7 years with full servers.

Some people say "it destroys the Community, trolls and more (kiddys). But we dont need to think about them, because fh2 is too realistic for these persons. They would leave as fast as they came.
but the new real community players would be gold (a present) for the playerbase.

you can get bf2 from battlelog dot co in a one file install with all patches included already. That and the fh2 launcher would be everything you need, so it's far from impossible.

First point:
I think nobody wants to download bf2 from sources where you dont know its legal.(i never heard from this webside)
For me It seems not to be legal. (virus alert:)

Second point:
a fh standallone would be great bc you only get what you want: Forgotten Hope 2 . a great game for free.

Next point:
Its easy for everyone. you download the standallone,dont have trouble with mods (sometimes it chrashes or some maps dont work) you got a working game.

Last point:
It cant be so hard to make a standallone of fh2 if the pr guys can do it too. Also its good for the community, bc we get some new faces here( and full servers :)
FH2 Is an own game which have to be standallone. Holding classic systems is death to every game (there are many out there where you can see this)

In fact you are able to get bf2 about ebay, but it dosnt help fh2 ,its community and its Servers. Look around: the many classic games are death today,which means empty servers. if someone want to play there are only 2-4 people who play it anymore.do you want to play fh2 with 3-4 (or 10 5v5) people?. WE NEED MORE COMMUNITY MEMBERS and this can only happen if FH2 is easy to handle(game ready to play after installation) and no problems to get the game legal and easy (steam shut it down last year(bf2) (too hard to get). and the best way to do it is a standallone.
IN my view FH2 should be an own game like Squad.
OK thats why i think FH2 have to be standallone. Whats about you?

A LIVING GAME NEEDS A GROWING COMMUNITY

(everyone who want to see a Standallone should write an own text with a comprehended reason why he wants to see it, and looking to the future of fh2 )
(I m writing too much but i waste time for a great game i Love)
Thanks for reading

But battlelog.co is trustworthy and legal, and they recently made loads of of progress with something in congress as well. There are hundreds of loyal players using it and the forums and devs are active and responsive as hell. Go check it out, I promise you it runs smoothly most of the time.

But this webside wont help FH2 increasing its playerbase.

ONLY AN "ALL IN ONE" SOLUTION can help
You donload FH and have a working game (like PR)
I dont think the PR guys do something Illegal, but asked before they did a standallone.
Also I think EA only said "yes" to PR standallone because BF2 isnt sell on stream anymore.

"I think nobody should download bf2 from sources where you dont know its legal."

Hate to break it to you, but technically the standalone version of PR is illegal, just as the FH2 standalone would be. We do not have the right to put any part of BF2 up for free, which an BF2 mod would have to do.

See the thing is, I have downloaded bf2 twice on different websites and both had viruses.. now I don't even wont to try it again.

I would love for this mod to turn into a full game in the future.

i think the PR guys get the permission (licence) of EA
(I think it but im not sure)
I remember reading it in a folder in PR
What i also mean was : you dont want to download bf2 on websides which you dont trust.

Nevertheless I hope the devs will find a way for a standallone.
(I would pay 50 $ to see FH2 as standallone, with bigger playerbase and community in 2019)

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.
