From Mod to Mainstream: Project Reality 2
No modding for Battlefield 3 or 4? No problem.
The minds behind the most popular mod for Battlefield 2, Project Reality, have decided to take their skills elsewhere. Using Crytek’s CryEngine 3 and basing gameplay on the stellar mods they created for Battlefield 2 and Arma 2, the Project Reality team have decided to design their own standalone shooter. It’s called Project Reality 2, it will be a free-to-play tactical first-person shooter for PC, and you can help make it.
Posting on the Project Reality forums, the modders announced Project Reality 2 has been in development since mid-2012 and said an alpha build should be ready for internal testing within the next two months. An external release is still “a ways off” the devs said, and when it does launch, fans should expect a smaller project that expands over time.
“Initially, Project Reality 2 will be a small scale, infantry based FPS with a comprehensive weapon handling system that will aim to be as realistic as possible,” the PR team stated. “Map sizes will be 1km and 2km with an Advance and Secure (or “AAS”) style game mode, similar to that seen in the Project Reality: BF2 and Project Reality: ARMA 2 modifications.”
