The Project Reality Team is proud to announce the official release of Project Reality: BF2 v1.6! We would like to start with a major thank you for the ongoing support and feedback through all these years. We are now in PR:BF2's 16th year of development, that is no small feat. Today, Project Reality: BF2 is a free-to-play & standalone online game, with an emphasis on realistic combat environments, teamwork and cooperation with 50v50 servers. The development cycle for v1.6 was long and difficult, but it is your support that keeps us going! Today we are excited to launch our 39th major update.

Project Reality:BF2 v1.6
In this latest version of Project Reality: BF2, we implement the long-awaited World War 2 Western Front theatre, with a fully equipped US Army and Wehrmacht, battling on five brand new maps with dozens of new weapons and vehicles. Next to that we also introduce several other new assets and features to the core PR experience. You can find more information in the changelog below the screenshots.

sounds absolutely amazing. thank you for your ongoing work through the years.

would it be possible to add the "drag wounded" ability to everyone?
usually we kept the medic out of the firelines whenever possible.
