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.
The award winning Project Reality and Black Sand Studio teams are proud to announce the official release of Project Reality: BF2 v0.97! After the release of Project Reality: BF2 v0.96, there were a few critical issues discovered that could not be resolved via a server side hotfix. So, it was decided to release a client patch to fix these issues.

After the release of Project Reality: BF2 v0.96, there were a few critical issues discovered that could not be resolved via a server side hotfix. So, it was decided to release a client patch to fix these issues.
Since PR:BF2 v0.97 is only a client-side patch and we want to release it as quick as possible, there is no preload period and the installer is not password protected. The files are available for all to download and install straight away via our official downloads page:
Please note the different types of installers on the official downloads page. If you already have Project Reality: BF2 v0.96 installed, you simply need to download and install the v0.96 to v0.97 "Patch". Otherwise, if you have any previous versions, or you do not have Project Reality: BF2 installed at all, you will need to download the v0.97 "Full" installers, which comes in 3 separate parts due to the sheer amount of content in Project Reality: BF2. All three parts must be installed in order to play if you use the "Full" installers.
You can now download Project Reality: BF2 v0.97 and all future releases on Desura. Desura is a community driven digital distribution service for gamers, putting the best games, mods and downloadable content from developers at gamers fingertips, ready to buy and play.
