Greetings to you all! We would like to start this news update with some general information. As you might know a new patch for Battlefield 1942 has been released this week and some of you might be concerned about its affect on the the release date of Forgotten Hope 0.66. For now we have not found any problematic issues so we are still confident that we will be able to release the patch this month. If that's not good news... ;)
Before we reveal our latest news update we would like to inform you that a new season has started at Forgotten Hope Warzone. They are currently looking for German-speaking players who would like to play in their campaign as an allied soldier. All you need to join them is BF 1942, Forgotten Hope 0.65 and interest in team play and tactics. But read for yourself what FHW has to say:
The campaign we've just started puts us in battles against the Axis on every official FH map and also on unofficial maps our modders created exclusively for FHW. We don't play the same maps one after another. Instead, the right of who advances to where is changing every week. That way, the staff can decide where the next battle is to take place. At this time, the Axis are advancing in Africa and the Allies are trying to conquer Karelia. To keep the Axis from gaining a second front against Mother Russia, we need more soldiers.
We'd recommend you to have TeamSpeak available. And, although neither headset nor microphone are necessary, they sure help in the thick of battle. :)
And now let's head to the real news update for today. Last week we showed off the French army fighting on the Western Front - today we would like to present to you the Polish reinforcements that will arrive on the battlefield in 0.66!!
With all this stuff the Polish Army might have a better chance to stop invading Axis forces. The German attack is heading deeper into the country to gain control over the important industrial areas. In the new map Eastern Blitz, that was designed by Armin Ace, you will be able either to try to stop the invaders or help the Wehrmacht to seize the Polish industrial centres.
We would like to thank for your interest and would be glad if you would have a look next week when it's time for another update. If you want to discuss this one you are welcome to do so in our public forums.
