Russian Weapons, Spotting 2.0, Weapon Personalization and more
Captured Russian Weapons



With the map of Europe being constantly redrawn by shifting frontlines and alliances, Russian weapons have begun making their appearance in the West. Whether captured from weapons depots or traded by the Soviets in exchange for foreign aid, they are now available for the troops in both factions.

The Russian weapons now available are:
  • Degtyarev DP 28 – Light Machine Gun
  • PPSh-41 – Submachine Gun
  • RGD-33 – Handgrenade
  • PMK-40 – Anti-personnel Mine
  • TM-35 – Anti-tank Mine

Opposing Faction Weapons
But that is not all – both the US and the German faction now have access to a few captured weapons from the opposing faction. This means that the German players can buy some of the US weapons and vice versa.

These weapon categories are:
  • Anti-personnel and Anti-tank mines
  • Handgrenades
  • Close Combat weapons
  • Anti-Tank weapons

Spotting 2.0



The spotting system has gone through a couple of changes in the last couple of updates, with the help and feedback from the community.

The new spotting system includes limited view distance for spot notifications, different icons for spotted infantry and vehicles and when you’re inside a tank or a plane you can only see other spotted vehicles – not spotted infantry.

Weapon Personalization



We have also introduced Weapon Personalization, where you can have different variations of wood, camouflage-patterns and coloring for your weapons.

Right now you can buy variations for the M1 Garand and the Gewehr 43, and in coming updates we’ll support personalization for the rest of the weapons, as well as add more variation options for each weapon.

We hope you will all help us welcome new players and community members to the game.

Patton update - The largest expansion to date
Doubles the amount of tanks & introducing personal vehicle loadout

The Patton update first and foremost doubles the amount of tanks by adding 9 new tanks and tank destroyers, giving a total of 15 tanks, 3 tank-destroyers and 12 other vehicles ranging from fighter planes, reconnaissance vehicles, off-road cars and half-tracks to motorcycles and even bikes!

But that is not all - characters can now own and upgrade the vehicles, creating personal vehicle loadouts in a similar way to how weapon loadouts works.

"9 New Goddamned Tanks!" Trailer

We have made a special trailer to highlight the awesome new tanks as well as a brief look at the new personal vehicle loadout feature. We also plan to make a Patton videolog, as we usually do for a new release, but until then, watch this trailer, show it to your friends and help us spread the word!
So go watch the Patton update "9 New Goddamned Tanks!" trailer now:

New weapons


The Patton update also adds 2 new weapons: the US M3 'Grease Gun' and the German MP-34 as entry level submachine guns.

Speed up progression


Access to more vehicles, weapons and combat badges is unlocked when your characters rise in rank or gain ribbons based on your actions in the game, but if you wish to speed up the process, you may now purchase Ribbon Boosters to progress and unlock equipment, vehicles and combat badges faster.

... and there is much, much more to this update.

Even more toys coming up

In the coming weeks we will release even more content, so jump into action and watch out for more updates.

Description
Release date: Currently in Open Beta
Heroes & Generals is a Free2Play Massive Online FPS with a Strategic Multiplayer Campaign, set in the midst of World War II Europe, where Axis and Allies fight for control.

The game uniquely merges epic first-person shooter action with a rich strategic layer, where your decisions have the power to turn the tide in an ongoing war among thousands of online players.

Players can choose to play as 'Heroes', fighting in the trenches, flying planes, commanding tanks and other vehicles on the battlefield, or take control of the war as 'Generals', determining the strategic direction and supporting fellow players by managing battlefield assets, army units and reinforcements.

Tear up the WWII frontlines, manage resources and engage thousands of online players in a persistent war campaign built for shooter and strategy fans.

The war is fought out continuously across Windows, iOS and Android devices with thousands of players, and the result of every clash and battle alters the scope of the ongoing war campaign and might affect the final outcome.

The Action Game
The core of the game is a team-based first-person shooter. The players can engage in combat using a variety of characters, customizable weapons and vehicles such as tanks, fighter planes and even bikes.

The Strategic Layer
The action-game extends into a strategic top layer that binds the individual FPS sessions into a larger war with thousands of other players. On the strategic level players are able to command other players or entire groups in Assault Teams into combat. On top of that the strategic players have to manage resources and reinforcements in order to secure key locations on the battle map.

The Campaign
Each part of the game can be played separately and are designed to be enjoyable for everyone no matter how deeply they wish to be involved in the war. Heroes & Generals unique combination of FPS and Strategy gameplay allows players to participate in the grand online war at hugely different levels. Once-a-week FPS gamers can play alongside hardcore 10-hours-aday master strategists, and all players play their role in the grand war.

Multiple Platforms
Heroes & Generals is build for multiple platforms all connected to the same massive universe.
The action part of the game is playable on PC, and the strategy part of the game is accessible on PC and iOS/Android through the app Heroes & Generals: Mobile Command.

A Team of Hitman Veterans
Reto-Moto was founded in 1997 and quickly transformed into IO Interactive, which went on to release Hitman and Freedom Fighters. In 2004 IO Interactive was sold to Eidos, however the founding members of Reto-Moto left Eidos and reformed their old company, bringing in some of the core developers from IO Interactive to work on Heroes & Generals.
