Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope. Today we are announcing the release date for the highly anticipated 2.25 patch which will continue to build upon our initial Normandy release. We also have three more Panzergrau re-skins and screenshots of the final map to be included in 2.25.

Now on to the actual update. Today we have some screenshots of the map Anctoville which was created by Otolikos with the finishing touches done by Natty Wallo. It is on this map that players will be able to find our brand new rain effect as well, which was created byBenseras and tweaked by Remdul.
12th June 1944. British forces are advancing on Caen. In their path stands the seemingly harmless village of Anctoville. In the morning, as the rain pours down, they enter the village unaware of what awaits them. As they appear among the houses, the German defenders open fire. In the following fight the British forces must secure the village and outskirts to allow reinforcements to reach Caen. The Germans must hold this vital location to prevent the Allies' advance.
Finally, we have even more renders of the Panzergrau ('armor gray') paint scheme that we have been showing the past few weeks. This week we have the Panzer IIIJ Early, the SdKfz 251/1 Ausf. C 'Hanomag' halftrack, and the Granatwerfer 34 mortar. These re-skins were all done by Toddel.
