Forgotten Hope Secret Weapon (FHSW) is an unofficial continuation of the famous Forgotten Hope (FH), a Battlefield 1942 modification. We say unofficial since FHSW is developed by FH fans, not the original FH creators. In 2007 it started as a small addon but since then it has grown to be one of the biggest mods of all time! What makes this mod special is that it adds lots of - but not only - Secret Weapons which saw limited or no action at all during WW2 like jet fighters and super heavy tanks. Some of the maps feature "what-if" battles like a landing operation on the Japanese mainland or attacking a secret German base in the African desert.

Excuse my language, but holy ******* ****. I had thought that this awesome mod had ceased development after all this time. I had read in the Europe community forums how it seemed that some devs had moved on, but I'm so happy to see an update, even if it's a bug fix. It does say that it's to prepare for future content, so I hope there's more to come. I have been waiting everyday for the rest of the E-Series tanks and their variants since they added the E-10 and E-25. How's the Europe community by the way? After the disappointment and failure that was Battlefield V, we need this game and mod more than ever now.

I was quite surprised by this update as well. Let's hope it doesn't take three years again for the next one. :)

The European community is still going strong, I would even say that there are more players now than ever before. During events there are now regularly 40 to 50 people on the server.

That sounds really fun, and it makes me want to rejoin once more. When I used to play, I believe the amount of players was around 20 to 30, so I'm glad that the numbers have grown. Had some really good, intense, and funny moments playing during the events.

Are you trying to play with bots? Because this mod is multiplayer only.
