Heroes & Generals

The new build ‘Patton’ is online with a lot of exciting new stuff! This new update includes Russian weapons, weapon personalization, captured weapons, spotting 2.0, and more. We’re currently releasing new updates for the game more frequently than previously, so we’ve made a new videolog that summarizes some of the features introduced in the latest two updates :-)
Take a look here:
Here is a quick rundown of the video’s content:
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 WeaponsBut 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
- Close Combat weapons
- Anti-Tank weapons
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.
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.

We have just released the largest and most ambitious update for Heroes & Generals since we went into open beta last year.
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:
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.

Loads of new toys incoming!
We’re in the progress of polishing up a bunch of new toys for you at a scale you haven't seen from us before!
A series of massive updates bearing loads of new weapons and vehicles, plus some really cool new features will hit the live servers over the next few weeks, and we're dying to present this to you - but... no spoilers... You'll just have to way and see.
Yes, we know it's not fair to tease you like that, but stay tuned - the new updates will hit the live servers before you can say “Jagdpanzer acht-und-dreißig T”, ten times in a row.
Wars Aren't Won By Tanks Alone Trailer
To celebrate the upcoming content-fest, we are proud to present our new Heroes & Generals “Wars Aren’t Won by Tanks Alone” gameplay trailer showcasing the various different roles you can take in the persistent war between Axis and Allies in the European theater of war and reminding you that you need soldiers to win a war - not just tanks and planes...
The trailer can be seen here!
A shout out goes to the dedicated community-members who helped us stage these scenes and an Academy Award, BAFTA & Emmy goes to them for their performance as actors, when we captured these fantastic in-game shots – thanks for all the late hours you put in!
Watch the trailer, play the game and stay put for more supplies for the ongoing war between Axis and Allies in Heroes & Generals!

We’re proud to announce a partnership with Square Enix for the global launch of Heroes & Generals.
If you don’t know who or what Square Enix is, then the short version is that it’s a publisher, who amongst other titles has developed, published and distributed Final Fantasy, Hitman, Tomb Raider, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Dead Island, Dragon Quest, Sleeping Dogs, and many other great titles. We’re vey proud to be part this lineup and we believe that Square Enix is a perfect match for Heroes & Generals.
We’ll continue to run a community driven development, and the main difference to how we’ve run things so far, is that Square Enix will be handling marketing and PR… oh, and we’ll also be able to deliver a lot more content and expand the game a lot faster!
We really wanted to involve you in this sooner, but as Square Enix is a publicly traded company on the Tokyo Stock Exchange we couldn’t leak it to you before the deal was signed and Square Enix were ready for the announcement.
This is a fantastic opportunity for us at Reto-Moto, and the enthusiasm we feel from the people at Square Enix concerning Heroes & Generals is incredible! They are extremely impressed with our community (yup – that’s YOU!) and what we have achieved so far, and we hope that you will help us give the crew at Square Enix a warm welcome and support.
