Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.
Today we would like to show off a new map called Phoney War:
The Phoney War was an eight-month period at the start of World War II, during which there was only limited military land operation on the Western Front. The term was coined by journalists to derisively describe the six-month period (October 1939–March 1940) during which no land operations were undertaken by the Allies or the Germans after the German conquest of Poland in September 1939.
To encapsulate the unique nature of this period on the Western Front, we’ve introduced a brand new gamemode: Sitzkrieg. In this mode there are no flags to take and no weapons to use. Instead the objective is to observe the enemy with binoculars from the cover and safety of your own trench. At the end of the round, the team with the most “enemies spotted” wins! If you kill an enemy before the timer hits zero, your team loses the round instantly, so make sure not to fire that rifle in anger!
Obviously this gamemode is very much an early work in progress, but we would gladly like you all to come along and help us take a look at how it plays. Towards that end, we are planning on having a gameplay testing event similar to our recent test of Motovskiy Bay. This will be a chance to iron out any bugs and issues with Sitzkrieg, as well as for you to get a preview of the gorgeous upcoming map Phoney War.
We will be announcing the time and date of this test over on our Discord server within the next few days, be sure to join to get the latest scoop!
That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next time for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our Discord, our public forums, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.
