During development for PR:BF2 v1.0, the Project Reality Team talked to several community members, analyzed hundreds of games, and actually read the community forum suggestions and feedback threads. We realized that our game was missing some key features, and our player base was suffering because of it. Drastic change was required, and v1.0 was the best version to achieve this new goal.
The goal... Fun!
Project Reality: BF2 v1.0 Sandbox is our vision of the future for Project Reality. Hundreds of minutes have been poured into this new version, and the beta contains a small preview of what is yet to come. The beta version contains a single map, Sandin, which runs on top of Project Reality: BF2 v0.98. Please ensure you have this version installed prior to installing the beta.
- New map - Sandin, featuring a "small scale" King of the Hill battle
- Physics based objects that react to weapons and explosions
- New textures and environment objects
- Modified graphics and improved immersion
- New vehicles
- More fun!
Due to this being a beta, server files will not be released immediately. Initially, two community servers have been selected to run the beta, CIA and 762, in order to consolidate players and ensure an enjoyable, controlled experience. The Project Reality Team would like to thank CIA and 762 for helping with the beta. If there is increased demand, server files will be released to more servers in the future.
We hope everyone enjoys the new Project Reality experience. Please remember that this is a beta, and there may be issues. Please report any issues or feedback you may have in the Bugs and Feedback forums.
Stay tuned for our third Devcast to be released soon, and please feel free to join us on our IRC channel or visit our public forums to discuss this and other news.
