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 Project Reality team comprises a group of dedicated individuals, several of whom have backgrounds in armed services and whose sole task is to provide researched material, including statistical information, to the developers. These are in turn tasked with coding and creating the mod itself. If you are looking for a fact based first person shooter from the perspective of a combat soldier, you need not look any further.

If you haven't been living under a rock for the last few months, you may have heard the news that GameSpy will be shutting down online services for Battlefield 2 at the end of this month.

Shortly afterwards, Electronic Arts announced via their Origin Twitter that they were working on transitioning Battlefield 2 so that it would still be playable after the shutdown. However, contrary to their original statement, they recently announced that they would not be doing this, and that Battlefield 2 online services would be shut down at the end of June.

Have no fear though! Ever since the original announcement from GameSpy, the Project Reality Team has been hard at work on developing our own solution to keep Project Reality: BF2 online, and our players playing. In partnership with the Forgotten Hope 2 team, we have quickly developed our own custom master server, and I am happy to confirm that Project Reality: BF2 (and Forgotten Hope 2) will continue to be playable online after the GameSpy shutdown.

The update that will provide this new functionality will be released in our upcoming v1.2 patch, scheduled to be released before the shutdown occurs. Not only does it replace the GameSpy online services with our own, it also includes the Dutch Forces, several new maps, as well as loads of tweaks and improvements.

For the regular players of PR:BF2, the only difference you will notice with the new online services is that upon updating to v1.2, your existing player profiles will be deleted, and you will be required to make a new online account if you wish to play online. The account management system in the PR:BF2 Launcher, the ingame server browser, and PRSPY will continue to function as normal.

As we're nearing our 10th year since Project Reality was founded, we look forward to seeing Project Reality: BF2 continue long into the future!

Nice o.9 is much better than 0.87 in terms of aiming and number of factions, but why do u remove maps at every release? Why dont u just let us have more of the maps that have already been created? Maybe as an extra Mappack?

The plan is to compile a separate map pack containing the removed maps.

Well, i finally got to try out the mod, and what i can say, it's awesome and completely different from Battlefield 2. I remember playing Project Reality in it's infant stages, so going from a tweaked damage modification of what i played then to a full blown new game now, is amazing.

However i am having problems playing this game, only because of the requirements. From the time i bought this and played this in 2005 to present day 2010, i have made no significant hardware upgrades, and as such, this mod is extremely slow for me, especially when handling the bot AI. But when it's not freezing up, it's working perfectly.

The MAJOR problem i have is, it's not the modification that is causing me problems, it's the game itself. Ever since i have downloaded and installed BF2 Patch 1.5, this piece of **** now kicks me out of the desktop whenever i so much as bring up the menu during gameplay, and i can't even log on to my old accounts at all, because i get the same result.

Not ONLY that, but since the loading times have no changed at all for me, I'm not going to bother trying Multiplayer. In my case all that will happen is Punkbuster will deem me an afker and i will get kicked out of the server as soon as it is finished loading and i click on the play button.

The mod itself is absolutely amazing and to me, it pushes the limits of a 2005 game, the result is a professionally polished game. The sad thing is, because of my current predicament I am unable to experience 100% of this modification.

I can't wait to see 1.0, that's when I'll take this mod seriously.

Why don't you 'take it seriously' already?

Not sure what's so significant about 1.0 really, it's not like it's going to be the final version or anything.

You need to install the following in order:
- BF2 update 1.41
- BF2 update 1.5
- PR 0.9 Part 1
- PR 0.9 Part 2

Those links are where I got them from, but you can get them from other sources as well.

The BF2 engine on its edge... the BF2 gameplay reformed and finally promotes real teamwork. If you search for challenges in tactics and adrenaline boosted firefights this is the FPS game you search. For me it worths to buy BF2 (if you haven't yet) just to experience this mod. The extra content and the gameplay that is provided through Project Reality makes me to feel that PR is not a mod but a whole new game you can have for free. From Clan's experience perspective it is a must for every player…

Overrated! Not noob friendly. Great concept, terrible manual, tutorials, and controls. Half the time people don't even know what they're doing. Half the time you don't even know what you're doing. Pretty much follow a bunch of other people to get killed. The bots are excellent at shooting and killing you so it gives no room for even newbies to learn. The game is made so complex that it totally destroys the gameplay. Half the time you're running around in huge maps and when you finally make it somewhere…
