In the last year, we have released several addons, or DLC, for Project Reality: BF2 v0.97. These addons have added over a dozen new maps, multiple new factions, and some amazing new gameplay to PR:BF2. However, new and old players alike have found it difficult to understand exactly what addons or versions they needed to install. Well, the PR:BF2 v0.98 patch eliminates all that confusion by merging all the addons into a single installer. Server administrators will now be able to run all the new maps without the fear of losing players who may not have the required addon installed and players will be able to enjoy all the new factions, assets and maps.
Please note that the PR:BF2 v0.98 release is only available as a patch and PR:BF2 v0.97 is required. This version is not an optional DLC, so even if all the addons are currently installed, the v0.98 patch must be installed.

While you are downloading the PR:BF2 v0.98 Patch, take a moment to sit back and watch the official PR:BF2 v0.98 release trailer. It provides a quick overview of everything that is included in this release as well as giving you a glimpse into the epic gameplay that awaits you!
Included Addons and Map Packs
The PR:BF2 v0.98 patch only consists of the 4 previously released PR:BF2 v0.97 addons. There is no new content and none of the existing maps have been modified. This patch has been released for the sole purpose of unifying the addons to simplify the install process for the PR community. We want to see all the maps included in the addons acquire the playing time they deserve.
The following addons are included in v0.98:
- PR:BF2 v0.97 Map Pack (7 new maps)
- PR:BF2 Vietnam Addon (5 new maps, 3 new factions)
- PR:BF2 Falklands Addon (2 new maps, 2 new factions)
- PR:BF2 Normandy Addon (4 new maps, 2 new factions)
