Project Reality 2 Will Be CryEngine Standalone

By Jim Rossignol on September 23rd, 2013.


Battlefield 2 (and Arma) mod Project Reality was famed for its, well, realism, and grew a considerable following as a result. The astonishingly committed team have decided that their achievements now warrant a bit more than a mod for the next stage in multiplayer manshoot proceedings, and are embarking on a commercial project for the next version of the game. The Project Reality team explain: “Project Reality 2 (or simply “PR2″) will be a free to play multiplayer FPS PC game, based off of the critically acclaimed Project Reality modifications for Battlefield 2 and ARMA 2. Unlike our previous projects, PR2 will be a completely standalone game that will require no retail game to play.” The game will once again support an “Advance and Secure (or “AAS”) style game mode”, and the familiar commitment to realism, and this time will be constructed from scratch in CryEngine. Work began in 2012, but could take a while yet – the team are looking for help over here.

That’s how long it’s taken one of the best-known mods out there to be deemed fit for 1.0 status. It’s been more than playable (DOUBLE PLAYABLE) for probably longer than I’ve been alive, though, and it’s proven succulent with delicious intrigues time and time again. In my experience, rigorous team play is the name of the game, and anything less is met with swift, pulpy, never timely (yet always right on time) death.
