For a while now, the attentive reader has been seeing a lot of First Blood related items in our weekly bulletin updates. I even leaked what First Blood is by writing “(Tutorial)” behind it. We want you to feel comfortable playing the game and we are now putting the finishing touches on our First Blood scenario that everyone will encounter when they start up Heroes & Generals for the first time.
As the images might tell you, the scenario supports playing as both Allied and Axis. We want everyone to be comfortable with the weapons and how they work before they are thrown in front (or under) a tank or in the sights of a seasoned sniper. This scenario presents a great opportunity for everyone to check out their graphics settings and get a feel for how the game runs on their computer without being blown up or yelled at for standing still in the middle of an important fight!
Ultimately we want you to have the best possible players following you into combat in order to give you the best possible experiences while playing Heroes & Generals!
What you’ll be able to do:
In First Blood, you start by deciding your faction and the name of your first character. We also want to reward you for playing First Blood! I won’t give away any details, but I will tell you that they are worth the time! If you want, you can replay First Blood as many time as you want before heading to the war. The feedback we get on this will also help us decide if more tutorial missions are needed and how to prioritize them.
Some ideas for future developments could be ‘Rough terrain driving course’, ‘Tanker School’, ‘Shooting range’ or ‘formation flying training’…
Note: you can only unlock rewards the first time you play First Blood.
We all look forward to seeing how you receive this scenario and we hope that you like it as much as we do!
