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. ;)
Tired of looking at the same old Bazooka? Want to stand out from the Anti-Tank crowd?
Then look no further! In the coming build ‘Quesada’ we have added a new batch of weapon personalizations, this time for the Bazookas and Panzerschrecks.
Continue reading to see the rest of the awesome new paint-jobs for the anti tank weapons!
Paratroopers are getting ready to jump! In the next build named Quesada (after the United States Army Airforce general Elwood Richard Quesada) paratroopers will fly back into action!
Jump into action!
If you have an Infantry soldier at rank 7 or above you can transfer him to the paratroopers! Paratroopers are not as heavily armed as other soldiers and cannot carry Machineguns, Panzerschreck/Bazookas so if you have purchased a lot of heavy equipment for your soldier, it might be an idea to play another soldier up to rank 7 and convert him. Or if you don’t have the time for that you can buy an academy trained paratrooper for gold. Keeping at least one normal infantry soldier is always a good idea to help minimize waiting times when EVERYBODY wants to play with a specific type of soldier.
We wish to thank everybody who participated in the server stress test this week. The servers survived and we hit around 2000 concurrent users at peak with a total of 4516 players logging in between 20.00 – 23.00 CEST Tuesday this week.
As promised we would make a draw between all who participated in the event for 3 x SteelSeries 9H headsets, and the lucky winners are:
We have contacted all three using the email-address they registered and when we have their physical addresses, SteelSeries will ship the headsets to them. Should they not reply before the 1st of July we’ll make another draw and contact the next.
Furthermore, the emails with 3-day Veteran Membership voucher codes went out Wednesday. If you participated in the stress test and believe that you’re entitled to a voucher code due to this, but haven’t received it yet: please check your spam-folder and otherwise contact support.
Once more: We thank all who participated in the stress test and a special shout out goes to our friends at SteelSeries for sponsoring these cool prizes!
UPDATE at 23.00 CEST on Tuesday the 24th of June: The servers survived this session and we wish to thank all who showed up!
One of the coming days all who successfully logged in between 20.00 – 23.00 CEST will receive a voucher with a 3-day veteran membership by email – we’ll use the email address you signed up with. The winners of the SteelSeries 9H Headsets will be announced on this blog one of the coming days and we’ll notify the winners by email.
A while ago our friends at the Yogscast created and published some hilarious videos, which caused our servers to roll over and die due to a massive influx of new players. In the meantime we have optimized the code and added more hardware, but we really need your help to test how much the servers now can handle.
So in collaboration with the SteelSeries community we invite you to come and do your best to crash our servers on:
Tuesday the 24th of June 2014 at 20.00 CEST / 14.00 EDT.
