Alternative Step 1

We strongly discourage you from using Battlefield 2 copies obtained from unofficial channels (i.e. not CD retail version, Steam, Origin or former installer) as those may be outdated and disable you from playing online. Your installation must be patched to version 1.5 in order to play FH2.

Once the Battlefield 2 is installed, the latest version of FH2 can be obtained through the FH2 Launcher:

Alternative Step 3

If you have problems with the FH2 Launcher or if you want to do offline installations on another PC, then you can use full installer:

Part 2: Hope 2 2.57 (2 of 3).exe
Part 3: Hope 2 2.57 (3 of 3).exe

  1. Open the launcher by clicking on a Forgotten Hope 2 desktop shortcut. Press PLAY, and once the game loads, click on the BFHQ, then on Manage Account. Fill all the required fields (email address isn’t important, just make it up). Important notice: make sure to write down the password, as this is the only way you can restore your account!
  2. Start the launcher again, but this time navigate to OPTIONS submenu. Open Gameplay tab and select newly created account from the dropdown Login as list. In the same tab you can adjust various game settings to your liking.
  3. Now all is set and ready for playing. You can join servers via several options: from the in-game browser or by clicking on the joystick icon next to the corresponding server in the SERVERS submenu in launcher or from this page:
