Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we are showing off the fourth and final map to make it into version 2.53 update. You may have just seen it in the trailer posted earlier today, but for those of you who haven't yet, today's map is Ihantala. It covers the assaults by the Red Army against the Finnish defences in and around the village of Ihantala at the end of June 1944. Ihantala was made by Flippy Warbear and hitm4k3r.

June 1944, Karelian Isthmus. On the 28th, as the gruelling battle of Tali rages on, Finnish reinforcements from East Karelia arrive at the village of Ihantala and are immediately thrown into the combat. After fending off the Red Army in southern Ihantala, Major General Vihma’s 6th Division begin preparing their defenses.

The bitter fighting at Tali had become a lost cause. Therefore on the 30th, under the orders of Lt.General Oesch, the Finns reorganise into a new defensive line. The Red Army attacks Ihantala on the same day. With support from their powerful artillery, along with the German Luftwaffe detachment Kuhlmey and the 303rd Sturmgeschutz Brigade, the Finns brace themselves for the relentless Red Army assaults...

There was another trailer posted today? I tried looking on YouTube but only see the one from the other day.

Looks really epic for sure though. You guys got some of the best map makers.

This post was supposed to follow Part 1 by an hour, but ModDB apparently seems to have some minimum interval of 2/3 days. If you check our homepage Forgottenhope.warumdarum.de? you will find that we are up to Part 4 already.
