Project Reality is a free to download game modification for the Battlefield 2 (BF2) retail pc game. The Reality Mod installs alongside the existing game installation allowing both the original and Project Reality to be played separately without causing conflicts.
The Mod developers’ aims are to rework the original game engine developed by Digital Illusions of Sweden (Dice) within legal and feasible constraints to create a realistic combat environment for gamers. This includes adjusting the games various elements including physics, visual effects and game play. Along with changes to how the game handles, the PR team intends to include additional factions, such as the British military and add to or alter existing factions so that they resemble real life combat elements found within their contemporary environments.
The Mods name, ‘Project Reality’, is self descriptive in its aim to create a realistic combat environment on the home computer.
The Project Reality team comprises a group of dedicated individuals, several of whom have backgrounds in armed services, whose sole task is to provide researched material, including statistical information, to the developers who are in turn tasked with coding and creating the mod itself. If you are looking for a fact based first person shooter from the perspective of a combat soldier, we feel Project Reality will provide for your gaming needs.
Inspiration for this modification can be found in interviews BF2 developers have participated in.
Battlefield is all about fun, action-oriented game play.
We’ll leave the truly realistic experiences to the mod teams who thrive on that type of action.
Battlefield will always be first about fun and secondly about realism. Realism implies complexity.
The Mod is now going through its fifth installment, Project Reality 0.5. In its earliest forms, the Project Reality Mini-Mod series began as a platform to experiment with certain realism changes and analyze their impact on game play with the retail BF2 engine.
As the changes have progressed into workable features it has become a product with a frequent release schedule which provides the gaming community with ever increasing material and realistic gaming to satisfy their wants.
The goal at the moment is to develop and release Project Reality v1.0, a stable and completed Mod build which will be a markedly increased step up from the Project Reality Mini-Mod beginnings. This will include a complete British faction, including their various soldier classes, weaponry, vehicles and assets.
