Welcome to the second installment of Project Reality's December update! This update is jammed packed with many exciting updates and announcements! To get things rolling, the Reality Studios Team is proud to announce that we will once again be releasing a Project Reality: BF2 Christmas Map Pack this year!
Project Reality 2010 Christmas Map Pack
With the great success of last year?s Christmas map, Operation Snow Storm, the Reality Studios team decided it would once again bring in some Christmas cheer for the 2010 holiday season with not one, not two, but three snow maps! The 2010 Christmas Map Pack will include the maps Northern Lights, Barentz Invasion and will also see the return of last year?s smash hit, Operation Snow Storm.
Project Reality 2010 Christmas Map Pack
Friday the 10th of December 2010
Northern Lights is a 4km Assault and Secure (AAS) map that features the German and the Russian Forces battling it out over an open, slightly woody terrain. Both factions will have tanks and APC's at their disposal, along with transport helicopters to provide support.
Barentz Invasion is a 2km coastal map which pins the British Armed Forces against the Militia Forces in both AAS and Insurgency game modes. The British have light vehicles, APC's and helicopters to seek and destroy the hostile militia forces that although lightly armed, have dug into the surrounding countryside making them hard to destroy.
Operation Snow Storm is a 4km AAS map that features British and Chinese forces in mountainous, woodland where both sides will be relying primarily on helicopter support to navigate the harsh terrain. They are also backed up with light vehicles, APC's and mobile Anti-Aircraft.
We will be releasing the Project Reality 2010 Christmas Map Pack on Friday the 10th of December 2010, so keep your eyes peeled for the released! With the release of the map pack, we would like to encourage server administrators to organize special events for the community to sign up and participate in. If you need any assistance from the PR team, please do not hesitate to contact us!
Project Reality: BF2 Media Update
The Reality Studios team is still hard at work on the development of next installment of Project Reality and we are making great progress. Listed below is media from just a few of the multiple projects we are currently working on.
FNA: AS 565 MB Panther Light Transport Helicopter
The French Naval Aviation's AS 565 MB Panther is a naval search and rescue version of the AS365 N3, currently in production. The version shown above is the Mk2 version, which is currently in production (but not yet in service thou should be in the next few years). It features an upgraded cockpit, avionics, implementing an electro-optical FLIR, improve the tactical system and develop a system of self-protection. The main role of this helicopter in Project Reality will be light transport on maps which feature a naval presence with the helicopter being able to transport a full squad into battle, while also being able to laze targets.
Brazilian Army: HM-1 Pantera Light Transport Helicopter
The HM-1 Pantera (Panther SA 365 K) is the first version of the Panther, based on the AS365 N2. Although very similar to the Z-9, it dose have a few differences like its longer nose, different air filters over the engine intakes etc. In game it will serve as the light transport helicopter for the Brazilian Forces, being able to swiftly drop a full squad of troops into battle where larger helicopter might be unable to reach.
MEC: BMP-2M Infantry Fighting Vehicle
The BMP-2M is an upgraded version of the BMP-2 equipped with AG-30M automatic grenade launcher, four "Kornet-E" ATGM launchers, new day/night(FLIR) sight for gunner, panoramic TV-sight for commander and new FCS. The BMP-2M has the ability to fire two missiles simultaneously at one target.
Shijia Valley - UK vs PLA
Shijia Valley is an all new 4km AAS map based on the fertile Shijia Valley in central China. With a large river basin, rice patties, mountainous terrain and an urban city, the battle landscape will be as varied as the assets needed to accomplish the mission.
And what might that mission be? In partnership with her allies, the British Army has been tasked with securing a uranium mine in the hills above this otherwise peaceful valley. They have already taken control of the local rail yard, set up a forward operating base and are about to begin the final push across the river. It is now up to the People's Liberation Army (PLA) to protect their land and nuclear resource. Both forces have armor, APC's, boats, and helicopters at the ready and are waiting for the storm clouds to clear.
