Default Project Reality: BF2 v1.6 Released!

The Project Reality Team is proud to announce the official release of Project Reality: BF2 v1.6! We would like to start with a major thank you for the ongoing support and feedback through all these years. We are now in PR:BF2's 16th year of development, that is no small feat. Today, Project Reality: BF2 is a free-to-play & standalone online game, with an emphasis on realistic combat environments, teamwork and cooperation with 50v50 servers. The development cycle for v1.6 was long and difficult, but it is your support that keeps us going! Today we are excited to launch our 39th major update.

Project Reality:BF2 v1.6
In this latest version of Project Reality: BF2, we implement the long-awaited World War 2 Western Front theatre, with a fully equipped US Army and Wehrmacht, battling on five brand new maps with dozens of new weapons and vehicles. Next to that we also introduce several other new assets and features to the core PR experience. You can find more information in the changelog below the screenshots.

Without further delay, enjoy the Project Reality: BF2 v1.6 release trailer and screenshots here, while you're downloading this large update:

Main Features & Changes
  • Added new PR Account login system. More details can be found in in the DevBlog here and in the PR Manual here.
  • Added historic WW2 United States Forces.
  • Added historic WW2 Wehrmacht Forces.
  • Added 6 new maps: Kafr Halab, Omaha Beach, Carentan, Brecourt Assault, Reichswald and Merville.
  • Added ability to the medic class to drag bodies of wounded soldiers.
  • Added ejector seats to all appropriate aircraft.
  • Added Mi-8 AMTSh and Ka-29 Helix-B transport helicopters to Russian Forces.
  • Added KamAZ 4350 and 5350 trucks to Russian Forces.
  • Added Ivan Gren-class landing ship “Vladimir Andreyev” to Russian Forces.
  • Added CV9035 APC to Dutch Forces.
  • Updated vehicle weapons operated by passengers to have their projectile’s trajectory and initial position lag-compensated.

For a complete list of all the changes check the:
Project Reality v1.6 Changelog

Download & Installation

If you are new to Project Reality or are on a very old version, visit the downloads page to download the standalone v1.6 installer. Project Reality is completely free and no additional software is required to play.

If you have already installed a more recent Project Reality: BF2 version, simply press "PLAY" in the launcher and the automatic updater will handle the rest! If you once took part in map events containing Kafr Halab or the WW2 maps, please remove these maps from your installation to avoid issues.

With PR:BF2 v1.6, we are introducing a brand new way of logging in and creating a PR Account. For more details, please see the new section in the PR Manual.

The 1.5 login servers have been shut down. To trigger the automatic update, please check manually for new updates in the Launcher. You can do this by clicking the small arrow to the right of "PLAY"
