Merry Christmas, Glædelig Jul, Season’s Greetings
Another year has almost passed and we at Reto-Moto would like to thank you for playing Heroes & Generals this year and for doing YOUR part on the battlefields, in the war room and as a part of our awesome community!
We have intercepted some Northbound radio chatter and advise you all to make sure your email address is up to date here: Update email address
AND that you are signed up for the newsletter here: Sign up for the newsletter
General S. Claus will not know where to deploy your present!
PS: We are drinking gløgg on the picture as the warmup to our annual Christmas party in the office, it is not a weird coincidence that everybody has their coffee cup with them :-)
The ‘Spaatz addon #1′ update is now live on the servers and introduces Open faction fighting, a Notification tray and more.
If you’ve been following our weekly ‘Devstreams’ on Twitch you might have heard us talk about an update for Spaatz, but we decided to split this into two updates: ‘Spaatz addon #1′ and ‘Spaatz addon#2′.
‘Addon #2′ will hold a new and greatly improved hit detection system, as well as a few other changes for the action game and this update is being tested at the moment and will be released as soon as it has been greenlit by our QA guys. But read on to see what the new Spaatz addon #1 offers:
A small, but very sought after, feature that we’re rolling out in the upcoming Spaatz Addon #1 build is a new ‘Notification’ feature.
One of the most interesting and also most visible features we are getting ready to roll out is the Open Faction Fighting. We talked a bit about this in the last Devstream.
What does it mean?
You no longer have to commit to a faction before even playing your first battle. From the next update (Spaatz Addon #1) you can play Staged Battles (previously called random training missions) for as long as you want and you can add soldiers from all factions into the matchmaker if you just want to play now!
Tomorrow, November 11th is Veterans Day in the United States, and also observed as Remembrance Day in the British Commonwealth and as Armistice Day in France, Belgium and other countries. This day marks the end of the first World War in Western Europe when the armistice took effect at eleven o’clock in the morning — the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918.
And while this day is not observed in Denmark (we were neutral in the First World War), we thought it would be fitting time to give all players from the greenest recruit to the most grizzled veterans a Free 24-hour Veteran Membership.
So If you have signed up for the game AND completed an action game before we midnight today (CET), you will get 24 hours free veteran membership. If you already have an active Veteran Membership, additional 24 hours will be added.
If you have been observing the supply queues over the last couple of days you might have noticed production being adjusted up and down over time.
Tuesday TeeVee, ehh. Tuesday Tube? Hmm.. Tuesday Thunder? Nahh.. Tuesday FAN VIDEO!
Sch1ll1 just send this vid to us at Reto HQ and we thought it would be a pity not to show it to the rest of you as well!
NB: The faint sobbing you might hear in the background is me crying over not being even half as good. /Reto.Robotron3000
As you have probably seen we have teamed up with Curse and Gamepedia and moved our official wiki to Gamepedia. To celebrate this major boost to our wiki, we decided to run a wiki-editing contest with our friends at Gamepedia and now the winners are here!
The progress the wiki has seen has been fantastic and it has improved to a point, where there are so many hints, hidden gems, guides and tips in the wiki, that if you can remember them all, you’ll be close to invincible in the game.
