PR:BF2 and GameSpy

If you haven't been living under a rock for the last few months, you may have heard the news that GameSpy will be shutting down online services for Battlefield 2 at the end of this month.

Shortly afterwards, Electronic Arts announced via their Origin Twitter that they were working on transitioning Battlefield 2 so that it would still be playable after the shutdown. However, contrary to their original statement, they recently announced that they would not be doing this, and that Battlefield 2 online services would be shut down at the end of June.

Have no fear though! Ever since the original announcement from GameSpy, the Project Reality Team has been hard at work on developing our own solution to keep Project Reality: BF2 online, and our players playing. In partnership with the Forgotten Hope 2 team, we have quickly developed our own custom master server, and I am happy to confirm that Project Reality: BF2 (and Forgotten Hope 2) will continue to be playable online after the GameSpy shutdown.

The update that will provide this new functionality will be released in our upcoming v1.2 patch, scheduled to be released before the shutdown occurs. Not only does it replace the GameSpy online services with our own, it also includes the Dutch Forces, several new maps, as well as loads of tweaks and improvements.

Project Reality: BF2 - Winter Is Coming!

The award winning Project Reality team is proud to announce that winter is coming to Project Reality!

After we released PR:BF2 v1.0, the Project Reality Team talked to several community members. A strong focus of the conversations were new map environments. After previous successes of Winter-themed map packs, the decision to integrate arctic warfare into Project Reality was the obvious choice.
We are proud to announce that Project Reality now officially features a snow themed map: Dovre Winter!

A lot of improvements were made to bring an authentic winter experience into the realms of Battlefield 2. The team worked hard on new textures, effects and sounds. We have also been working to improve the code in order to bring realistic behavior on the new added surfaces. Time to get your snow tires and watch your speed or you might fly off the road!

A full changelog of the new update can be found here.

Sadly all those new textures, effects, sounds, etc. are increasing the size of the mod by a huge amount. In order to keep it within a reasonable margin, the team decided to remove an old map. Long discussions have been made, but in the end it got decided to remove "Kashan Desert". The team no longer sees the need for this map in Project Reality as it is no longer up to the standard of other maps and features nothing that is not covered by newer maps.

We are sad to see an old friend go, but at the sam...
