The first official BETA version of Battle Grounds 2 for the Source Engine has been released and is available for download below. The BG team and especially the recently aquired new members put a huge effort into the development of BG2.

This BETA version is far from being complete and you may encounter issues or bugs. But it is already a hell lot of fun to play and should give you a clear idea where we are heading in the future.

A steam account AND owning Half-Life 2 is required to play Battle Grounds 2.
Feel free to set up a mirror but don't forget to let us know about it.

The source code (not required to play) is also available:
source code zip file or tar.bz2

More information about the ongoing development or how to run/compile a dedicated server, etc. can be found here.

For all people trying to set up their own Battle Grounds 2 dedicated server under linux there is detailed guide in our wiki

The following screenshots were taken during tests of the last beta versions and not all show the current state of the game.

Was really fun. In the beginning I got ****** when "knifed" during a reload, but when you figured you had to be really careful when to reload it was no problem, it was more part of the fun.

noted. I will look into checking for the same client as server and such, you can run a custom build of the client on any server right now :o
