Please take your seats gentlemen… ah! I see our special guests from the Square Enix webpage have arrived. Welcome! Now that we have everybody, we may begin this briefing. Kindly start the projector, Wilson…
Gentlemen! I am pleased to announce that very shortly a new character progression tree will be implemented as part of the coming Newgarden build. This is a feature which has been widely requested by our players for a very long time, and one which shall bring more depth to the Heroes & Generals gaming experience. It consists of a completely revised system for character types and ranks, equipment, combat ribbons and badges.
One of the problems with invading a foreign country is that you don’t really have time to learn the correct pronounciation of all the street names. Also, it’s hard to ask for directions when the local residents are mostly hiding in the cellar — and if you’re really unpopular, they probably took the street signs with them. This is when maps come in handy! And with the Newgarden build, the in-game map will become more useful.
We are beginning to get a clearer picture of the new enemy airfield, thanks to the heroic dedication of Obergefreiter Waldemar Schweige, who led a daring yet successful reconnaissance mission in this heavily guarded area. He has returned with invaluable knowledge about the site, both in terms of structures and equipment.
Long time community member K120 has made a great little video showing off the tanks available in the game.
So put your tanker helmet on, hold an oily rag under your nose (not TOO close :-) ) and press play!
(remember to turn up, the volume and hit both the HD and full-screen buttons)
In the coming Newgarden build, we will change the way the game renders graphics when the “low” quality setting is selected. The picture below pretty much sums it up, but read on for the details!
First of all, what is your gamertag in Heroes & Generals, and what’s the story?
Reto.Gargamel… obviously because I’m an evil necromancer. Or maybe I got inspired by Reto.Draebesmoelf‘s hilarious nickname.
For how long have you been working here?
Almost a year now!
What are your hobbies?
I spend most of my free time producing electronic music.
What’s the best thing about Heroes & Generals?
This game really makes teamwork meaningful. You need the others to win the war. Sometimes I want to high-five my monitor!
What’s the best thing about working at Reto-Moto?
Working with complete nerds. Working in downtown Copenhagen. It’s the most beautiful city in the world — if you’re an evil necromancer. Discussing WWII trivia every single day without people rolling their eyes. The unofficial beard contest.
What are you working on right now?
Turning smurfs into gold. [That’s not true, Ed.]
What are your favorite games of all time?
The Legend of Zelda (1986), Metroid (1986), Mega Man 2, Syndicate (1993), Super Metroid, Heroes of Might & Magic III, Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, Mass Effect 2, Limbo, Papers Please.
What are your favorite movies?
Das Leben der Anderen, Fight Club, 12 Monkeys, Dr. Strangelove, De Grønne Slagtere, Der Untergang, THX 1138, Blade Runner, Moon, The Pianist and of course Band of Brothers.
