What’s the best thing about Heroes & Generals?
You mean the awesome free-2-play RTS/FPS game? The game where assault teams are under your command (if you so wish)? Where you can sit patiently in an abandoned ruin and snipe incoming enemies? That game? The one where you can hurl an armor piercing piece of ‘OMG’ at enemy vehicles? Where you can fly planes, rush capture points, fire bazooka’s, silently sneak up and end a foe’s misery with a knife? Listen as the silence grows, just before the madness starts? Hmm – I don’t know…bikes?

A Call to Arms: Video Capture

This year, we’re really looking to ramp up the amount of videos we release (a kind of New Year’s resolution of ours, if you will), and to help us achieve this we want to get our players involved in the process to help us capture all of the very best moments from the battlefields!

If you’re interested in getting involved with H&G video capture (and picking up some Gold in the process) head over to this thread on the forum and find out more:
http://forum.heroesandgenerals.com/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=12320.

NB: Reto.Robotron3000’s New Year’s resolution is to “not eat a single unripe gooseberry in 2014″ which might be the most easily kept AND useless New Year’s resolution in a long time.

Half the Battle – Blog Index

I look around me and I see a lot of new faces. Lots of green recruits looking to improve their efficiency in combat! War is dirty business, and there is a lot to learn. Luckily I have been posting gameplay advice in a semi-regular blog column called Half the Battle for a little while now, and in order for you to find these posts more easily, I organized them in a convenient index page on our wiki.

Remember that you can send me a private message on the Heroes & Generals Forum if you have ideas for topics that you would like to see discussed in Half the Battle. Stay tuned for more!

Scheduled Maintenance – War Server moves – POSTPONED

UPDATE:

We’ve had to postpone the server move, sorry for the confusion!

If you have had the opportunity to play on the new airfield map, you will probably have wondered about the strange fortifications which look like above-ground tunnels or hollowed-out hills. What are they for? Did our level designer just make these up or did they really exist during WWII? Let’s find out!
