Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope. It has been several weeks since our last update, and we hope everyone hasn't gotten frostbite from the new patch. Today we are back, ready to kick things off for the post-release future!

Before we continue on with the rest of today's update, we'd first like to thank everyone for downloading and playing FH 2.4. This last patch has been a huge success for us here on the development team and it serves as a huge moral boost to all of us to see everyone enjoying FH2 so much. So to all of our fans, we say thank you!

Thanks to the new stats and ranking system introduced in FH2, we can now gather specific information on how popular certain areas of the mod are, and how many times a certain object has been used. For example, the most popular map so far has been Meuse River, while the most popular weapon type has been the standard infantry rifle, with the most successful team being the German military. In terms of awards, the most common one is the Objectives Award - Bronze, with these awards being awarded only once so far: Artillery Spotter, Submachine Gunner - Silver, Anti-Air Gunner - Silver, and the Battle of the Bulge Commemorative Medal.

But that's not all! As of August 2nd, Forgotten Hope 2.4 has seen a total of 6,376 players log on, with a total of 1,285 rounds played. That amounts to a staggering 31,187 combined hours played, and a massive 632,822 total kills.

As many of you remember, after FH 2.3 won the 2010 Player's Choice Mod of the Year competition, we revealed that we had begun work on bringing the Eastern Front into the world of Forgotten Hope 2. However, apart from the original announcement, details on the subject were scarce. Today, we can begin to show more, and our first render is of the Russian Studebaker US6 general purpose truck!

Studebaker US6

The Studebaker (or Studer to the Soviets) was a 2.5 ton GP truck that was manufactured and used by both the American and Soviet forces. It featured a 94-hp engine and came in 13 different variations. The trucks build for the Lend-Lease program were put together by the Studebaker corporation itself, and then were sent off through the Persian Corridor. Once in Russian hands, the US6 was used in a variety of roles from pulling artillery to transporting infantry. But perhaps its most deadly role was serving as a platform for Stalin's Organs; better known as the Katyusha Rocket Launchers. The Studebaker US6 truck was made by Toddel.

On a quick and final note, if you haven't noticed, FH2 has moved to a new and proper Facebook page. You can view the new page here, and don't forget to 'Like' us as well.

That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next time for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel and our public forums.

Apologize for the late update, this was actually posted on the 7th of August on our homepage, , but as with some of us taking longer vacations than others, our ModDB page became a bit out of sync. That should be fixed now :)

If you mean singleplayer campaign: no. There are singleplayer maps, but not in any particular order. However, you can play them in historically correct order by reading the maplist on the official website.
There are two multiplayer tournaments that play campaigns, forgottenhonor and world at war.
