'Heroes & Generals' Update Adds New Map, Vehicle

by Rainier on June 25, 2018 @ 1:02 p.m. PDT

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.

The new Khutor-map takes place in a completely new setting inspired the marshlands of Eastern Europe – the first new setting introduced into Heroes & Generals since the launch of the game.

“It is super exciting to introduce a new setting and a new map in Heroes & Generals. We have had a lot of great feedback from our players helping us fine tune gameplay elements on the new map,” tells Jacob Andersen, Game Director at RETO MOTO.

Khutor is designed for the skirmish game mode in Heroes & Generals, and not only does the fall leaves on birch trees adds a fresh breath of both color and feel to the game. The open and swampy areas also present players with new tactical challenges as they battle for victory.

“What’s also exciting about Khutor is that it's the first map we have produced using our new graphics pipeline. This has enabled us to deliver a map with a higher level of detail that will set the standard for all future maps we do,” says Jacob Andersen.

As the new Khutor map is based on Eastern European terrain the update introduces the Universal-1, a Soviet tractor based on the US Farmall F-20 design, as a new civilian vehicle to match the terrain.
