Nations At War 3.9 Released

The Nations At War team has released version 3.9 of their Battlefield 2 conversion. This new release includes several new maps, new vehicles, new weapons, and significant tweaks and changes to existing content. I could write them out, but it would probably better for you to go right to the Release Notes for the full listing.

One immediate improvement is the availability of map packs for this mod as previously all maps were downloaded individually. You can find links to download the 3.9 client, the client with map pack 3, or any of the map packs at the Nations At War website.

Mod News Variety Pack

There was a bunch of mod news released this weekend.

First the biggest mod news I have heard in a while: Battlegroup and Frontlines have merged to form a single mod!

The developers of the two leading ww2 mods, Battlegroup and Frontlines, are proud to announce that they are to join together as Battlegroup:Frontlines to create the strongest BF mod ever known. Development of eastern and western fronts will go ahead in parallel, sharing vehicles, player models and statics to produce a bigger and more complete mod than was possible before. The aim of Battlegroup:Frontlines (BGF) is nothing less than to produce the leading ww2 mod on the BF2 engine, offering the best gameplay, the best models and skins, most challenging maps, most realistic sounds and atmospheric music. And of course with an open ear for the concerns amd wishes of the BF2 community. Read the rest here
