Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope. For today's update we have some screenshots of an old weapon with a new addition and another brand new map. Before we start however, we would like to welcome two new developers to the team. kettcar will be responsible for making quality maps for FH2 and is also the creator of today's map. Engineer will be working to bring the weapons and vehicles of FH2 to life with all new sounds.
First off for today we have a battle proven weapon, but with a new twist. Below are screenshots of the Fallschirmjägergewehr 42 (FG42) with the ZF4 scope mounted for increased accuracy. The scope was created by Seth Solider and the weapon was exported by Kev4000.
Next up, we have the final map for 2.3 to show off, and it will certainly put your close-quarters skills to the test. This week we have Battle of Brest, set in Brittany, France. This map was created kettcar, with help from Remdul and Knoffhoff. As usual, you can view the minimap in the 'Maps' section of the website.
The city of Brest with it's U-Boat pens was of vital importance to the German Atlantic fleet. For 28 days the city was bombed by 705 Allied attack planes and bombers, destroying the once beautiful city with over 360 tons of bombs. On September the 17th and 2nd US Infantry Division moved into the western part of the city, in which the German defenders put up heavy resistance from MG nests and fortified positions. The house to house fighting inside the ruins begun, where any crossing of a street could have deadly consequences.
With that we end our week of catching up here on ModDB, but be sure to come back next time for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel and our public forums to discuss this update and other news.
