Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

We know that it has been some time since we last had a news update, and we'd like to thank our fans for being patient. To help make up for this, we'd like to use this update to announce the first new map coming to the next patch.

That map of course is Gold Beach. This beach landing map was brought to you by the work of Beregil and Schism.

On the morning of the 6th of June 1944, the 50th (Northumbrian) Infantry Division landed on the beaches between the Normandy towns of Le Hamel and Ver sur Mer. The code name given to this landing ground was Gold Beach. Opposing the landing was the 716th Static Infantry Division, formed from Germans unfit for the Eastern Front and conscripts from occupied nations. The initial bombardment and the support of the "Funnies" from the 79th Armoured Division led to the creation of a beachhead six miles wide and deep by the end of the day.

Our winner for this week's screenshot competition is RAnDOOm. You can view the winning submission here.

We are now accepting entries for the week of October 28th. The winner will be announced in the final part. If you think you have the best FH2 screenshot, post them here.

That's all for today, but be sure to come back next time for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel, our public forums, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.
