Click Here to Download Beta 2.0

Patient gamers, the time has come! After several unexpected delays, our developers have worked through all the bugs, glitches and changes you suggested to produce a new version that is loaded with so much new content that we're not even going to bother with a "patch" download. Darkest Hour Beta 2.0 has new weapons, new tanks, new characters, parachutes, new voices, new tank skins, weapon modifications, new maps, tons of bug fixes, several realistic gameplay alterations, a new anti-tank loading system....the list goes on, as you can see below.

New vehicles include the British Cromwell, the Jagdpanther Tank Destroyer and the Sherman 76mm Tank. In addition to our parachute-based maps, we're releasing several other such as Poteau Ambush, based on the ambush of an Allied Convoy.

That is the question a lot of you have been asking lately. We had originally promised to put out a patch in the first weeks of September that would include our new parachute system. However as the release date drew near we decided that with our relatively small community it would be better for us to keep releasing in larger content patches instead of small chunks. This allows us to avoid confusion and version mismatches.

With that said then we are pleased to announce that the new Darkest Hour patch has grown in size and complexity to such an extent that it will now be known as Beta 2.0 instead of 1.2 (as originally planned).

As promised we are going to deliver the Parachute system, new weapons, player models, maps, tanks and most important overhauls to both the Tank and Anti-tank systems in game. We can assure you this new DH patch was worth the wait but in the mean time please content yourselves with some new video (click 'read more') showing our latest tanks the Jagdpanther and Cromwell being tested in game.

A few weeks ago, we told you about the parachutes that are soon to come. We are pleased to announce that that is not all that is on its way. Since that announcement, our developers have been hard at work smoothing out every last kink we can for this release to ensure that the new version of Darkest Hour will provide a seamless new dose of possibility for all of our players.

What we didn't mention before is that we are throwing in a couple bonuses. Darkest Hour will now include German Fallschirmjäger players thanks to the newly completed texturing by Aeneas2020. This will now provide a more realistic look for the German Army on many maps.

We are proud to release the complete redesign of our web site, providing a far more professional look that is appropriate for the level we have reached with this mod and its community. In addition to its catchy layout, our web site now provides the functionality we have long awaited. You will be able to read all the Darkest Hour news at and find just as many images and videos as you once went to our ModDB page for!

We have a sleek-looking gallery that is very easy to add to. This of course makes it more convenient for developers to add even the smallest of updates for us players to drool over. We also have a convenient file downloads page where you'll be able to find the latest Darkest Hour upgrades very easily.

With the success of our 1.1 release, our development team has been working eagerly to bring you yet another addition - the long awaited parachute system! After many delays we are finally releasing this system in the August patch. If you recall from our Feature Trailer, the chute system allows players to spawn inside airplanes and simply jump out the door at any point in its flight. As the player exits the plane, the chute will automatically deploy and slow the fall, providing some steering ability and realistically slight control over your landing point.
