Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we'd like to make a short announcement. This coming Sunday, there will be a live stream in which Ts4EVER and FatJoe will be showing off some of the new maps and content for the next update. Although a lot of this has been covered in news posts or Devblogs, there is still at least one big new thing to see.

The steam will be hosted on FatJoe's Twitch channel on:

Sunday 25th February 2018 @ 15:00 UTC

We hope that you can watch it all live with us, but if not you will be able to watch it afterwards on Twitch and our YouTube channel.


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.

Czech out this Render

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we have a render of perhaps a lesser known rifle used by the German Army, the Gewehr 33/40(t).

Known to its original owners as the vz. 33, the carbine had been designed to arm the Czechoslovak gendarmerie. Based somewhat on the army's vz.24 rifle, it was lightened and shortened to make a handier package.

With the capture of Czechoslovakia in the run up to the war, the arms factories of Brno began to make weapons for the Germans. The vz. 33 was one of several existing designs adopted into German service as the G33/40, with slight modifications to the buttplate and German style sling mounts.

This carbine was used principally to arm the Gebirgsj├Ąger, and part of the modifications to the buttplate included a strengthening plate to allow the rifle to be used more effectively as a climbing aid. Just over 25000 vz. 33 and 131000 G33/40(t) carbines were manufactured up to 1942, and ours was made by Seth Soldier.

A Roar in the Hay

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we are showing off a new map, but before we get to that we'd like to mention the folks over at World at War. They've been hosting our login server since Gamespy went down, so if you have some spare money to donate to the upkeep, please give them some support.

Our map today is Ogledow. Put together by Ts4EVER, it covers the first use of Tiger II tanks on the Eastern Front, and the Soviet ambush that they advanced into.

After rupturing the German front and destroying army group center during the great summer offensive of 1944, Russian forces are pouring into eastern Poland. They seized several bridgeheads over the river Vistula, thus crushing German hopes of using it as a new defensive line.

In an attempt to throw the enemy spearheads back across the Vistula, the Germans are massing their forces near the town of Staszow, including some of the new super-heavy Tiger II tanks.

You can find the minimap and a preliminary vehicle listing here.


That's all for today, but be sure to come back next time for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel, our public forums, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.

Rudolph Beware!

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we're back from the dead with another explosive render just in time for the fireworks. It's Christmas Eve, and when you have nine targets overhead, there's only one weapon you need: the Luftfaust B.

Designed in late 1944, the Luftfaust was the only one of several German man portable anti-aircraft rocket launchers that made it off the drawing board and into combat trials before the end of the war. Consisting of 9 lengths of pipe, a rudimentary sight, and a firing system taken from the Panzerschreck, it was to be fired from the shoulder at low flying aircraft.

The projectiles used a warhead derived from normal 20 mm anti-aircraft ammunition mated to a spin stabilised rocket motor. Fired as a salvo of 4, followed a fraction of a second later by the remaining 5, the rockets would spread out to a circle of 40 metres across at 200 metres distance.

It isn't known how many Luftfausts were made or used in the confusion of the last days of the war, but it is known that at least a handful were deployed in and around Berlin. Ours was made by the ever talented Seth Soldier.

However that's not all, we have another little present for you. A few screenshots taken from upcoming maps. Please mind that these are works in progress and subject to change.

Finally, since this is Forgotten Hope 2's 10th Christmas, we thought we'd dig out something from a while ago. All the way back in 2003, McGibs drew us a little Christmas scene, and we thought that 14 years later it might be time to get it out again. Enjoy the holidays everyone!
