Some time has passed since our last news update. But today we can say once more "Welcome back folks to this weekend's news update". Although there is not any mod development progress to show today we have several community updates for you. We have news about ongoing tournaments as well as information about fan map projects that will bring you great battles in the near future
First of all we have the latest word on two Forgotten Hope Tournaments for you.
Battle for Europe - World at War has started round #10 lately
and every player is welcome to join the battle. For anyone who does not know
about BFE: WaW, here is a quick description:
All Portuguese-speaking players are invited to join the recently started campaign #2 of Batalha Pela Europa. This tournament is also trying to replay the events of WW2 in a historically accurate way.
The first fan map project to introduce today is Forgottenmaps.net. With this
project the initiators want to give mappers the chance to present their work to
the whole community. And with their game server they intend to provide a place
where you can play these maps.
The custom map scene is growing at the moment. Another project coming up is the Forgotten Hope Community Map Pack. The FHCMP developers are currently working on a custom map pack that will bring not-yet-seen battles to your PC. You are welcome to send in your map or help out with ongoing projects if you wish.
Check out their site and feel free to help in the map developing progress.
And last but not least we have news about the official Fan Map Pack #2. We know it took longer than expected but finally we have a release date for you. The Fan Map Pack will be available for you and your favorite game server on Saturday, April 8th, 2005 at 20:00 GMT. Be sure to grab your copy and join in the new battles coming up in Finland, France, Russia and Burma.
That's all for today folks but be sure to come back next weekend for another news update, to see the latest developments about the mod. Feel free to discuss today's update in our public forums.
