BF2 : Project Reality

Project Reality: BF2 v1.0 Released!

The award winning Project Reality Team is proud to announce the official release of Project Reality: BF2 v1.0!

After 8 years of development and 21 total releases, we are pleased to announce the general availability of Project Reality: BF2, version 1.0. Since our last release (v0.98), our dedicated development team has put in countless hours of hard and intense work to produce PR:BF2 v1.0. Featuring all new models and textures, new maps, new code, new features, tweaks, fixes, and complete overhauls, this is by far our largest release to date. Almost every single file in the game has been modified in one way or another! The Open BETA for v1.0 last month provided us with valuable feedback across all aspects of the game, and now we are now ready for release.

As Project Reality fans are already aware of, the password required to unlock the installer for the preload version is now available and listed below. You can also obtain it on the official password page.

Thanks to several direct link providers, there are a number of mirrors available to download the un-passworded version of Project Reality: BF2 v1.0. You can also download via torrent, but you will still need to enter the password in order to install. You can find all of the download links here:

New Features and Changes
If you missed our previous news post and Developer Highlights containing the Feature List and Map Gallery, Project Reality: BF2 v1.0 features thousands of changes and improves every aspect of the game.

BF2: Project Reality

Project Reality: BF2 v1.0 Open BETA Released!

The award winning Project Reality Team is proud to announce the launch of the Official Project Reality: BF2 v1.0 Open BETA!

It has been a long time coming and after almost two years of development and numerous new additions, thousands of changes, tweaks and complete overhauls, we are now in the final stages of Project Reality: BF2 v1.0′s development cycle. While we are currently not ready for the final full release, it is time for the next best thing: an Open BETA which is free for everyone to download and play!

This Open BETA release is a crucial part of the development cycle and while we have a great team of dedicated testers that have tirelessly helped find countless bugs, we simply cannot properly test gameplay and other features that require a mass amount of players. It is important that we find and fix any problems before we release the final version and we are asking you, the community which has supported us for the past 8 years, for your help in making the PR:BF2 v1.0 the best release yet!


Download the Project Reality: BF2 v1.0 Open BETA Here

The PR:BF2 v1.0 Open BETA download comes in the form of an “ISO” file. In order to install it, you will need to mount it using software such as Virtual CloneDrive, extract it using software such as 7-Zip or WinRAR, or burn it to a DVD. Once you have done this, you simply run the installer it contains. Please note that the PR:BF2 v1.0 Open BETA can be installed side-by-side with PR:BF2 v0.98 and will not cause any conflict.

Project Reality: BF2 v1.0 Open BETA Teaser
While you are downloading the PR:BF2 v1.0 Open BETA, feel free to take a moment to sit back and watch the PR:BF2 v1.0 Open BETA Official Teaser.

About the Open BETA Release
During the next week, from June 29, 2013 to July 7, 2013, the PR:BF2 v1.0 Open BETA will be running and open for everyone to play. The Project Reality Team is providing two 100 player game servers for the duration, one for US based players and one for EU based players. We will not be hosting any additional servers unless absolutely required and you will not be able to create your own servers or play against AI.

It is important to understand that this Open BETA release is primarily a stress test and we do not want multiple servers that are only half filled, but instead are aiming to have the two provide servers remain fully populated for as long as possible. This may mean you will have to wait to join the servers, but we please ask the community to be patient, as we believe the wait will be more than worth it. If any players happen to miss out over the next week, we sincerely apologize but, providing the BETA goes smoothly, we anticipate the final PR:BF2 v1.0 release to follow shortly after.

New Features and Changes
While the PR:BF2 v1.0 Open BETA does not contain all the new features that will be included in the final v1.0 release, it does contain a substantial amount of changes compared to our previous release, PR:BF2 v0.98. We are currently not prepared to publish a complete change log of the thousands of changes and features you will find in v1.0, but in order to help you adjust and make an easier transition, we have listed some of the more prominent gameplay changes below.

  • Integrated PR Mumble (Positional Voice Chat) that connects completely automatically, with in-game HUD support.
  • Added Machine Gunner and Spotter kits.
  • Removed Binoculars from all conventional forces kits (Officers and Spotters still carry GTLD’s).
  • Removed incendiary grenades.
  • Reworked deviation and recoil on all weapons.
  • Reworked explosives completely.
  • Reworked the majority of land vehicle physics.
  • Reworked helicopter damage system, plane-carried air to air missiles, and flares.
  • Changed Forward Outposts and Weapon Caches to only be destroyable by explosives and other heavy assets.
  • Changed Rally Points to be permanent, they will not destroy themselves after a time limit.
  • Rally Points need the Squad Leader + 2 Squad Members to be placed.
  • Rally Points get destroyed by 1 enemy within 10m, 20m, 40m radius (1 km, 2 km, 4 km maps respectively).

 


Included Maps
There are currently 3 maps included in the PR:BF2 v1.0 Open BETA release: Black Gold (4 km), Ramiel (2 km) and Saaremaa (4 km). In a few days, we are planning to release an update containing fixes for any critical issues found, as well as a 4th map: Fools Road (2 km). All of the maps have received complete overhauls for v1.0, so rest assured you will find a fresh experience in playing this release, despite only one of the maps being brand new.

Project Reality: BF2 Feedback
Since the PR:BF2 v1.0 Open BETA is a test release, we would ask that all players provide us with as much feedback as possible and report any bugs and/or issues they encounter. Please be sure to use the appropriate threads below and check to see if your issue has already been reported before you add a new one.

When reporting issues, please provide your system information if appropriate, which can be easily retrieved in the Support section of the PR:BF2 Launcher.

Project Reality Official Developer Stream
Since the servers may be difficult to join at times, a few of the PR developers and team members will be live streaming the gameplay on Twitch. So if you are stuck in queue waiting for a spot to open, or you are at work or school and find yourself unable to play, please feel free to drop by our channel and watch the action as it unfolds.
