Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope! Today we are very proud as we are ready to show off the very first map to be featured in the upcoming Battle of the Bulge patch. We also have another announcement from Forgotten Honor about their new Italian campaign. Enjoy!
Our first item today is a very important one. We are proud to present our first Battle of the Bulge map; Meuse River-1944 by Fenring. In this snowy landscape, players will find themselves using all the elements of combined arms as either German or American soldiers, tankers, pilots, and artillery gunners. Additional art for the map was done by Kettcar.
Across the western edge of the Ardennes massif runs the Meuse River. This river, throughout history, has been the natural line of resistance against an enemy advancing from east to west over the Belgian highlands. Within forty-eight hours of the launching of the 1944 attack the Allied high command diagnosed the enemy intent as that of driving to the Meuse in the vicinity of Liege. You may take part in the battle on side of the Allies to stop the invading forces or join the German attack to cross the river.
We also have another update from the Forgotten Honor tournament regarding their new Italian campaign. Here's what they had to say:
|This friday's FH2 event|
brought to you by Forgotten Honor
In planning events like the previous Italian Friday we asked ourselves how we could bring you THE best teamplay experience possible in Forgotten Hope 2. How better to do just that than by making it possible for you to play with the divisions from our upcoming FH2 campaign and experience their level of organised teamplay!?
Join us Friday night and get a chance to play with a proper, fully organized division including cunning commanders, competent squad leaders, and above all, friendly team mates: THE way to play FH2!
The 2 divisions that will do battle in our upcoming campaign will open hostilities early, confronting each other on the battlefields of Hill 262, Montebourg Station and Road to Kairouan on our public server. However, half of the server slots will be reserved for players from outside F|H, giving you a chance to experience our way of playing. Joining us on our Team Speak 3 Server will give you priority access to the server as well as a more in-depth gameplay experience.
Download our user friendly installer which will add all the necessary files to your FH2 folder. Once the event is over you can easily uninstall the files!
(Does NOT modify your FH2 installation, only adds files ~200 MB)
