Master your own destiny! Command a nation!

Full STEAM ahead! Help us test the new Steam client

UPDATE – Signup for the Steam client Beta-test is closed. We now have more than enough volunteers. For the rest of you – be assured that you don’t have to wait long for a Steam Early Access release of Heroes & Generals.

As you may or may not know, we’re preparing to release Heroes & Generals on Steam Early Access fairly soon. And for this purpose we need a number of players to help us install and test the Steam version of the game before release.

So if you’re interested in participating in a small test Thursday the 10th of July 2014 at 18.00 CEST / 12.00 EDT, please go to this signup-form and type in your email-address and username.

We will only send 100 keys, so please only sign up for a key if you know that you’re able to join the test Thursday. And don’t worry – you will ALL very soon get the chance to play Heroes & Generals on Steam. ;)


If you want to know when the event takes place in your timezone, take a look at the World Clock here.

Further instructions will be included in the email with the key.

    One Question can the people that already have Beta access download the steam version

    • Reto.KenSoloReto.KenSolo07-08-2014

      When we release H&G on Steam Early Acces, everybody who already have an account may also play through Steam. It’s the same game, the same war and the same accounts, just using a stand-alone client that is installed and launched through Steam. The only other change is that payment happens through Steam wallet if you play the game on Steam.

        Ok thanks


    I have a question:after you subscribe to list when you will receive the key for the game?

    • Reto.KenSoloReto.KenSolo07-08-2014

      We’ll send the key Thursday, but only to the first 100 who sign up.

        • Reto.KenSoloReto.KenSolo07-09-2014

          You will be playing on the live servers that you normally play on, but you will be using the Steam client. In the email we send you tomorrow there will also be instructions on where to send feedback regarding the Steam client. We might also be on live tomorrow evening, but we’re primarily interested in knowing how the Steam client behaves when you guys use it.

  11. ProPrexus17ProPrexus1707-09-2014

    I want a key pls :)

  12. skudd3rskudd3r07-09-2014

    Steam will be a good thing for this game, it will definitely help bring in huge influx of players at the start, and probably down the road a consistent 1k average more players. Hopefully this draws more of the US crowd so we have some more allied forces!

  13. CasualDeathCasualDeath07-09-2014

    So is this new steam going to be like free to play pay to win games and steam is just giving you another client where you log into your account. And this client it gives you is just the same one as normal but not in chrome?

    • SkyDaggersSkyDaggers07-10-2014

      Say what..?

  14. zerov25zerov2507-09-2014

    Awww I wanted to join this test but just arrived home now and saw this ):

  15. EndergiantEndergiant07-10-2014

    do you have to play it on steam then or can u just play as u have it now? (on the internet)

    • Reto.KenSoloReto.KenSolo07-10-2014

      You don’t have to play through Steam. When we release on Steam Early Access, you will still be able to play on as you do now.

  16. sp0rter1992sp0rter199207-10-2014

    I still haven’t received the email with the key.

    • Reto.KenSoloReto.KenSolo07-10-2014

      The mail was sent to you an hour ago – please check your spam-folder.


    i checked it but it isn’t there

    • Reto.KenSoloReto.KenSolo07-10-2014

      I’ve just sent you a key using a different mail-system. Try to check again and if it isn’t in your inbox within the next 30 minutes, then I probably can’t help you.


        I received it thanks.

  21. SkyDaggersSkyDaggers07-10-2014

    Im late :(

    Anyone got a spare key?

  22. EnglishGamerGuyEnglishGamerGuy07-10-2014

    Got into the test and everything seems to be running really smoothly. Start-up time is so much quicker than the browser version and it’s really nice to have the main screen in full screen. Waiting for this development for ages and it has exceeded expectations. Well done!

  23. atomcorpatomcorp07-11-2014

    if there a keys, ill be happy to get one )


    There is less lag in the steam version.I like it very much.

What are you waiting for soldier? We need heroes on the battlefield and generals to lead them!
