This is B.F. Pierce filling in for a while on the news posting. Armin said if I do a good job he's gonna double my
bread rations, so everybody say good words about me.
And finally what Forgotten Hope update would be complete without some ingame screenshots! These are the shots promised from day 17 but things have been a tad hectic over here. There will also be the standard update on friday, so lucky you, two updates in one week!
These first three shots are interesting because they show a few of the new things in store for you with 0.6. The first is a shot of the GMC Deuce and a half in action on wake. These serve as transport trucks in forgotten hope. There will be many different types of these trucks placed ingame for each nation, with functions such as healing, ammunition storage, and also mobile spawn points in some instances. The second shot shows our Grumman Wildcat in action over the redone wake island. Wake is now historically accurate, with the addition of accurate vehicles, terrain, and weapons of war. Included in the new Wake Island map are 5cm shore guns and also the addition of 3cm Anti Aircraft batteries, four guns controlled by a single player, and they are badass to be sure. The third shot shows the new deployable heavy machine gun kits, which can be picked up in many places on most of our maps. By deploying the machinegun and manning it you are now in a prone position, instead of sticking your head 4 feet in the air and exposing yourself. Upon exiting the manned position the gun is automatically picked up and added to your inventory so you can continue on your merry way of point defense for your team!
These last three shots are pure eyecandy, so enjoy!
That's it for today troops, but stay tuned for the next update this friday for some more information.
