Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope 2.
With the winter season now upon us, we here at the development team would like to wish all of our fans happy holidays and hope that no matter where you are or what you are doing, that you are enjoying yourself. We would also like to thank everyone who voted for FH2 in this year's Mod of the Year. With the results now public, Forgotten Hope 2 has received an 'honorable mention' in the Player's Choice category. We are very pleased to see that so many people still enjoy our work, even after so many years. Thank you.
And now as our way of giving back, today we are proud to announce the first map that will be featured in the upcoming patch; Battle of Keren by Schism!
The Battle of Keren was fought from 3 February 1941 to 1 April 1941 between the colonial Italian army defending Eritrea and the invading British and Commonwealth forces. Keren was a town located in the Italian colony of Eritrea and was of strategic importance to both the Italian and the British forces. The road and railway routes through Keren were the key to access the city of Asmara and the Red Sea port of Massawa.
Our winner for this week's screenshot competition is Kadoffel. You can view the winning submission here.
We are now accepting entries for the week of Dec. 25th. If you think you have the best FH2 screenshot, post them here.
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.
