Welcome to Project Reality: Battlefield 2 (aka PR:BF2), a free to download game modification for the Battlefield 2 (aka BF2) retail Windows PC game. The focus of this mod is to rework the original game engine developed by Digital Illusions of Sweden (Dice) within legal and feasible constraints to create a more realistic combat environment for the gaming community. This includes adjusting various game play elements including physics, visual effects and overall game play formats. Along with changes to how the game handles, the Project Reality team has been introducing British, Insurgent, IDF forces, Canadian, and Russian factions, plus a number of community assisted factions are currently in the works to introduce even more factions to the virtual battlefields. This Mod is not for the masses, due to the fact that it has a much higher learning curve then your classic arcade game. This is the real deal.

Preload Project Reality: BF2 Now!

As with our last few releases, you can preload the files for Project Reality: BF2 v0.96. This will allow you to have the files downloaded, ready to go for release; so when we release the password to unlock the installers, you can immediately install and be playing within minutes!. The password allowing you to run the installation files will be released automatically via the password page at the above time.

This version comes in two separate types. If you have Project Reality: BF2 v0.95 already installed, you simply need to download and install the v0.95 to v0.96 "Patch". Otherwise, if you have any previous versions, or you do not have Project Reality installed at all, you will need to download the v0.96 "Full" installers, which comes in 3 separate parts due to the sheer amount of content in Project Reality. All three parts must be installed in order to play if you use the "Full" installers.

New Features and Changes

While this version primarily focused on fixing issues with previous versions of Project Reality, there are some new additions to the game.

  • New map: Shijia Valley (4km) (GB vs PLA)
  • New game mode: AAS Routes (AASv4)
  • New vehicle: Panther CLV
  • New PLA kit geometries
  • Many changes to existing maps regarding layouts, tickets and overall balance
  • Tweaks to soldier sprinting, as well as changes to soldier movement to increase the effect of momentum
  • Performance improvements in several weapons and vehicles
  • Fixed crashes caused by the UAV and German AT weapons
  • Countless other bug fixes and other tweaks and changes

For a complete and comprehensive list of all the changes and newly added features in PR:BF2 v0.96, please view the Project Reality: BF2 v0.96 changelog:

Project Reality: BF2 v0.96 Server Files

If you currently host a Project Reality game server, you should receive the server files for Project Reality: BF2 v0.96 via the Server Admin Control Panel in the next few days, prior to the final release. If you are interested in hosting a new server, please follow the link below to apply for a server license.

If you are in the market for a new game server to host Project Reality: BF2, look no further than PR's officially endorsed server provider, Alpha Networks. Alpha Networks provide Project Reality: BF2 game servers to the public at highly competitive prices, as well as dedicated servers, and first-class customer support.

In conclusion, the Project Reality team would like to extend the usual thanks. First and foremost, Alpha Networks, for providing the Project Reality development team with critical test and build servers. Without their support, PR:BF2 v0.96 would likely never have happened. We would also like to thank the entire PR community, the wider Battlefield 2 news community and last (but certainty not least!) the Black Sand Studio mod teams for playing and supporting Project Reality over the last 6 years.
