'Heroes & Generals' v1.12 Update Re-balances All Vehicles, New Terrain & Deploy System - Trailer

Heroes & Generals WWII is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online first person shooter set in WW2, where Germany, the United States and the Soviet Union fight for victory in one grand persistent online war.

Heroes & Generals eliminates the formulaic baggage that weighs down the shooter genre by delivering satisfying strategic action in a full blown first-person shooter experience. Players are transported from the comfort of their browsers to authentic WWII battlefields, where they fight alongside thousands of gamers for persistent progression and military supremacy.

Each player in Heroes & Generals chooses their own destiny. You might join the Axis and climb the ranks as a foot soldier, firing off countless rounds in epic battles for crucial landmarks. Or perhaps you’ll become a general in the US army and accept the task of deploying resources and reinforcements across a vast strategic map.

Either way your decisions and actions fundamentally impact the game. Whether you play a fearless infantryman blazing the trenches, a hotshot pilot renowned for precision bombing runs, a brutal gunner assigned to a rumbling tank battalion, or the ace commander directing it all from strategic command – every active soldier contributes to an evolving online war that will soon expand to smartphones and tablets as well.

‘Deploy! Drive! Destroy!’ offers a total rebalancing of the more than 70 vehicles available for soldiers to own in Heroes & Generals. All vehicles have been fitted with a completely new armor and damage system as well as upgraded handling adding significant detail and depth to the game. 

Experience a newfound freedom of choice – play the soldier you want and bring along the vehicles you like in a new flexible deploy system. Now you can start combat as Infantry, but switch to Pilot, Recon, Paratrooper or Tanker if that’s what it takes to win the battle. The choice is yours!

“In the ‘Deploy! Drive! Destroy!’-update we ripped out key elements of the game and rebuilt them for a richer and deeper gameplay experience. We not only wanted to make heavy tanks as badass as you would expect, we wanted to add value to ALL vehicles in Heroes & Generals and create a diverse and balanced battlefield,” tells Jacob Andersen, Game Director at RETO MOTO.

‘Deploy! Drive! Destroy!’-update includes:

  • New armor system for all vehicles. Now it really DOES matter WHERE and HOW you attack an enemy vehicle. 
  • New damage system lets you immobilize vehicles with critical hits to components such as engine, fuel tank or ammunition, gun turret, wing, rudder and so on. 
  • Vehicle handling has been upgraded and every vehicle have had their physics redone from scratch.
  • New terrain system implemented on all maps makes sure roads, grass and mud affects your driving just like you would expect.
  • Simpler and more flexible deploy system makes it easier to setup a squad with your friends and play the soldier you want to play in battle. 
“This update truly goes to the core of the game benefiting all players. It represents a major undertaking for Heroes & Generals – we have been working on it for a long time and in the process updated and consolidated a range of complex behind the scenes systems giving us more options for the future. We want to extend our gratitude to our  very engaged community who joined the public test server and provided very valuable feedback to make this update even better,” says Jacob Andersen.
