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.

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:
