Project Reality to become standalone title Project Reality 2

The Project Reality mod is set to evolve into a standalone title for Windows PC called Project Reality 2,  The Project Reality Team announced on the mod's official forums.

Project Reality 2 will be a free-to-play multiplayer first-person shooter PC game, based on mods for Battlefield 2 and ARMA 2. According to the team, the goal is to develop a "realistic, immersive and demanding shooter" with a focus on fostering teamwork through tactical gameplay.

"Since its inception over 8 years ago, Project Reality has built a large, dedicated community which has watched the mod evolve from a single forum post into one of the most successful and decorated modifications of its time," the developers wrote. "As Project Reality has continued to grow and branch out onto multiple game engines, one question has been continuously asked; Will Project Reality ever produce an independent game?"

Using CryEngine 3 SDK, development on Project Reality 2 began in mid-2012, with an Alpha build expected for closed testing "within the next two months." The Alpha will feature the Fools Road map, a recreation of part of Laskar Gar, Afghanistan and a basic training map. The team is currently working on a map based on Sant Elm in the Balearic Islands of Spain.

The standalone will feature the armed forces of the U.K., U.S., Germany, Russia, Israel, China and Canada, along with insurgent and irregular forces.

Project Reality 2 team is currently accepting applications from those who are interested in contributing to the project.
