Pretty soon we’re going to be getting underway with a mammoth undertaking, as we prepare to push the big red button on a range of operations designed to drive greater interest in our special little home we like to call Heroes & Generals.
Which means you lot are going to have lots more people to shoot at.
It involves a big server migration, as we first mentioned earlier this month – but now all the plans are locked down we wanted to share more details, so you can see the scale of the project at hand.
Here’s what we’re improving:
- Server stability – better hardware means fewer crashes and a smoother experience
- Security – further safeguards to personal information
- Performance – particularly on the campaign map… which we’re very happy about
- Overall scalability – so moah players doesn’t mean moah laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaag
The server migration will now be taking place on Monday 27th January 2014. During this migration, the servers will be down for approximately 10-12 hours, starting at around 0900 CET (click here to see when this is in your time zone), so you’ll be unable to play the game during this time.
Looking slightly further ahead, we’ve got a shiny new website waiting in the wings – we’re expecting deployment on Friday 31st and we’re looking forward to bringing everything together in a way that makes it easier to navigate. Here’s a sneak peek to give you an idea of the look and feel of things ahead of the switch:
Following the new site launch, the next part of the plan is a big change to our customer support structure on March 5th, better enabling us to look after soldiers who run into trouble in the line of duty.
So thanks for your ongoing support – there are big, big days ahead for Heroes & Generals, and we’re very glad to have you along for the ride.
