Battlefield 1942 Mod Forgotten Hope Coming Soon
7:19 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Forgotten Hope, a mod for Battlefield 1942, was recently released for the PC with a Mac version to be released soon. The mod features over 250 new pieces of equipment including both land vehicles and aircraft, as well as many other gameplay additions.

The mod includes over 250 new pieces of authentic equipment (more than any other Second World War FPS), with tanks such as the mighty Russian IS-2 heavy tank and the diminutive Japanese Ha-Go light tank, aircraft from the rugged American P47 Thunderbolt to the antiquated British Fairey Swordfish biplane, warships such as the British Ark Royal aircraft carrier and the German Battleship Tirpitz and weapons including the powerful German Panzerfausts and the fearsome Russian PPSh-41 submachine gun.

New gameplay elements include a pilot class, which is now the only class equipped with a parachute, these can be found as pickup kits near most aircraft. There are also kits that contain deployable heavy machine guns, which can be setup anywhere on the map to create defensive strongpoints. Tank combat is greatly enhanced by a specially designed armour code, which determines how much armour anti-tank shells can penetrate, making it advantageous to outflank tanks to attack their weak rear armour. There are also towed anti-tank and anti-aircraft guns, these can be driven to a hidden ambush point then deployed to surprise the enemy.
According to a post by Adam Ward on the Macologist website an issue with the installer is causing a delay in the release of the Mac version. For more information follow the links below.
