Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope 2.
Before we get on with today's update, we would like to apologize for any inconveniences caused by the technical difficulties we are currently experiencing with our forums. We are working hard on every level to restore everything back to normal, as fast we can.
Our render for today is not of a totally new weapon, but of a re-worked favorite. This week we are showing off our updated Luger PO8 pistol!
The Pistole Parabellum 1908 pistol (commonly known as the Luger) was an 8-round semi-automatic pistol produced from 1900 to 1945. Perhaps the most unique feature of the pistol was the jointed arm situated towards the rear of the pistol, which would hinge open upon firing. This was significantly different from the more traditional slide actions of other pistols of the time. The Luger came in many different variants, with several attachments. The German Naval version featured a 6-inch barrel, and a two-position rear sight, where the Army variant had a 4-inch barrel and was chambered in the 9x19mm Parabellum round. Despite being replaced in 1938 by the newer, Walther P38 pistol, the PO8 Luger saw action throughout both World Wars and was a highly prized collectable for US servicemen. The PO8 Luger pistol was updated by Remdul.We have been working hard to update and add new content for the next patch. Below are four screenshots of what we've been working on. We would also like to note that the Panzer III L and the Panzer III N you see below are imports of the original Forgotten Hope 1 models which were done by Rad.
That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next week for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel channel, our public forums, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.
