Exactly two years after our first announcement, the award winning Project Reality and Black Sand Studio teams are proud to announce the release of our first public version of PR:BF2 Vietnam, to be released on:
Friday, April 6th, 2012
PR:Vietnam will be distributed using a separate installer available via Torrent and direct download. It will be accessible on the day mentioned above.
Included in the PR:BF2 Vietnam release is a brand new updater. This updater will allow you to keep up to date with the latest advancements we are making, including bug fixes and new features as they get created. This will avoid the need to manually download and install new patches. Be sure to watch PR:BF2's ingame news-ticker and the PR:BF2 Vietnam forum to keep track of changes and updates. Messages will be posted in order to inform you when an update is necessary.
Similar to our latest map pack, this is our second official PR:BF2 DLC release, and will also be completely optional. However, in order to be able to play on all servers we strongly recommend to download and install it.
In the future PR:BF2 Vietnam will be completely integrated into the main PR:BF2 build, and will be featured in the upcoming version 1.0.
New Features and Changes
3 new factions: Vietnam War era US Army, USMC and NVA
2 brand new maps as well as 2 modified existing PR:BF2 maps
Many new vehicles, weapons and other equipment
If you currently host a Project Reality: BF2 game server you will be able to download the files needed for PR:BF2 Vietnam via the Server Admin Control Panel prior to release. If you want to start hosting a server, please follow the link below to apply for a Server License.
If you are in the market for a new game server to host Project Reality, look no further than PR's officially endorsed server provider, Alpha Networks. Alpha Networks provide Project Reality game servers to the public at highly competitive prices, as well as dedicated servers and first-class customer support.
In conclusion, the Project Reality Studios team would like to extend a few thanks.
First and foremost, Alpha Networks, for providing the PR team with critical test and build servers. Without their support, PR:BF2 Vietnam would likely never have happened. Last, but not least, we would like to thank the Eve of Destruction and Battlefield: Korea modifications for providing us with many crucial assets.
Looking at the linkpath of the pictures, it could also be an april fool, so enjoy this news with caution, gentlemen. But on the other side, the original Anouncement of Existence of Project Reality: Vietnam has also been made on a 1st of April and confirmed on April 4th.
They wouldn't plan suuuuch a complex april fools joke... PR:V release is true. Of course the pic url has "april_fool" in it, since they planned to release and released those pics as "april fools joke" on 1st april...
As announced last Sunday, we have gotten to the stage where we are ready to release the first version of Project Reality: BF2 Vietnam. While this release is still in beta form, we feel it is the right time to show the public the progress we have been making, and help serve as a platform for testing content in the public environment before it's inclusion in our next version, v1.0.
This release is in the form of a single installer, and is a completely optional addon. However, due to many servers running the addon, we strongly recommend that everyone download and install it to avoid problems with servers running a mixed map rotation. The download links can be found on our official downloads page:

April Fools Reactions
Due to the announcement happening on April Fools Day, there were some priceless reactions from the community, and much speculation all around. A lot of people remembered back to our original PR:BF2 Vietnam Announcement 2 years ago on April Fools, and many people were as confused and fooled as back then. Here are some of our favorite comments:[INDENT]SnipeHunt
The joke is that Vietnam has NEVER been worked on. Trolling the PR forums for 2 years now!
Tell us they're going to make Project Reality Vietnam on April Fools. People think it's April Fools joke but its not. Then tell us it's going to be released on April Fools with the directory of the pictures name "april_fools" only to tell us NOPE April Fools we were never going to release it.
Is this for real !? Or just one big joke to make the whole community fuzz about for a whole week
I made the after April Fools Day PR News with my last quote about PRV, so I'm keeping my mouth shut with this one lol.[/INDENT]Overall, the week long "jokeception" was very successful, and the overall community reaction gave the Project Reality Team great satisfaction and enjoyment. Thanks to all of you who participated!
