Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope. We are proud to announce that today we are ready to show off some of our latest work that we've been keeping under wraps for some time now. But before that, please welcome Zeta to the team, who will be helping us to create static models.
Firstly, we would like to once more thank everyone for helping us win the 2010 Mod of the Year contest. We fully appreciate everyone's support for our mod. And now, as promised, we have a teaser image, and several renders and in-game screenshots of our latest and greatest projects.
Over the past few months, we have been working to bring more content to FH2 at a faster rate, yet with the same level of quality. As many of you know, our next project is the Battle of the Bulge. At the same, the decision was made to bring FH2 to the Eastern Front. Today, we are proud to reveal the first results of that decision: a teaser image done by FatJoe, and two new Soviet tanks.

The SU-152, or "beast killer", was a heavy self-propelled gun (SPG) armed with a 152mm howitzer. Since it was intended for providing artillery fire, the SPG was generally issued high-explosive (HE) rounds. The SU-152 became notorious for being able to knock out many of the heavy German tanks, and was even able to completely rip the turret off of a Tiger tank by simply firing HE shells at it. After Kursk, the SU-152 was used in its intended role, which was to destroy German fortifications, on all Soviet fronts, but it would later be replaced by the new ISU-152. The SU-152 was made by Pointblank86 and Toddel.
While we have certainly progressed far in our efforts, all Eastern Front content will be released after the Battle of the Bulge. However, what this does mean is that the Soviet Armies are finally coming to Forgotten Hope 2. On a final note, we have some in-game screenshots of some of the maps to be featured in our upcoming Battle of the Bulge patch.
The quality of work these guys have come out with is astounding but the engine is just bloody horrible
An engine change is out of the question at this point. If you know anything about FH, you know they are in it for the long haul. Also switching engines to Frostbite is totally out of the question, given all of the evidence that A) no more Battlefield titles are going to get mod tools and B) that Frostbite is first and foremost a console-based engine and simply doesn't allow for the player numbers that FH relies on for its epic battles.Agreed they need to switch engines, really fast. Maybe they're holding on until BF3 arrives? Though it probably won't have mod tools.
