BF2: Project Reality

The award-winning Project Reality team is proud to announce the official release of Project Reality: BF2 v1.2!

This update focuses on a new master server backend, completely replacing the GameSpy servers (which shut down at the end of May). As a result, it allows players to continue enjoying Project Reality: BF2! But that’s not all this update will provide. It also comes with the long awaited Dutch Forces, new maps, illumination flares, and multiple bug fixes and stability enhancements.

PR:BF2 v1.2 Trailer
Watch the official Project Reality: BF2 v1.2 here while you update. It provides a quick overview of everything that is included in this release such as the new maps and Dutch assets.

Main features & changes

  • PRMasterServer support, which replaces GameSpy
  • Dutch Forces
  • 3 new maps: Arctic Lion, Hades Peak & Shikotan Island
  • Illumination flares for Grenadier class
  • ZSU-23-4 Shilka SPAAA for MEC forces

Full changelog can be read here.



Installation
If you’re new to Project Reality, head to our downloads page and download the new version. If you have already installed Project Reality: BF2 v1.1, simply press “PLAY” in the launcher and the automatic updater should handle the rest!

IMPORTANT #1: Due to the new master server backend, your existing player profiles through GameSpy are invalid and will be deleted during the update, requiring new profiles to be made. The process of creating a profile through the launcher should be unchanged. However, this also means that your existing profile settings, such as video, audio and control configurations will be reset to default upon creation of the new profiles. Your existing profiles will be automatically backed up during the update process if you wish to manually copy existing settings from your old profiles.

IMPORTANT #2: Due to the urgent need to release a Project Reality build that functions independently of GameSpy pre-shutdown and our wish to provide you with some new content at the same time, you may encounter several bugs and errors. In particular, with our new master server and the new content additions. Rest assured, our developers and testing team are moving swiftly to handle any problems that arise. We appreciate your patience and understanding in the meantime. Relay any bugs or problems that you encounter to us through the PR:BF2 Bugs subforum, and be sure to follow the templates provided!

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:
