Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.

Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope 2. Finally we reached our destination. The Road to Forgotten Hope 2 has not come to an end but we can make our first stop. Everyone has the chance to gear up and download the first official release of Forgotten Hope 2.
And this would not have been a Forgotten Hope release if there would not have been any trouble yesterday. All our fans were so eager to play, that our bandwidth limit was exceeded - and limits at Filefront.com are very high! It took less than 1 hour to make both - our site and Filefront Public Forums - unavailable due to the high traffic load.
We would like to apologize for that and say thank you to all hosters spreading the news the best way possible. And we would like to say a very special thank you to our longtime supporters of Filefront.com, Warumdarum.de and TS-Rent.de. Especially Pro-Filer, Filefront Network Manager, and Flüstertüte to name two representative for everyone related!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
It worked out well and within one hour after the release were already more than 2,600 people playing Forgotten Hope 2 on public servers!
Now before we list all the mirrors where you can grab your download, we would love to present the last part of our Forgotten Hope Basic Training series. Once more director McGibs, voice actor Major and animatior Killi Vanilli put a nice video together introducing Command and Tactics. A special thank to all our testers involved creating this movie!
How could we date to release without a single trailer? We did not! This additional video, the Forgotten Hope 2 Trailer made by Bob Sacamano is a must see! Enjoy!
Now, finally after a lot of words, we are proud to present the first release of Forgotten Hope 2. Go and find yourself a mirror if you like and enjoy the game. See you on the servers and expect much more to come in the future!
If you do not have Forgotten Hope 2.0 installed you will need to do so. It all comes down to what file you have downloaded. If you have the password protected .rar file you need to extract that file now. If you don't have win-rar do get that now, as you'll need it to extract the file. The program will ask you for a password, enter the password shown below:
Password for the pre-release .rar file
After unlocking the .rar file the file installs just like every other file. Forgotten Hope 2.0 is a full installation, install it by double clicking the icon. Once you have done this you're all set to go!
If you haven't downloaded the file yet here are the links for the installer.
Optionally you might want to have a look at the MANUAL or the FH Wiki first or while you are still downloading.
