Adams update brings new terrain and tweaks to the town map

In the coming update named Adams (after the American hero Lucian Adams) we have improved the terrain graphics and added a handful of tweaks to the town map.

Terrain update

We have updated and improved the way terrain is generated and drawn on screen, and the Town map is the first to receive the update. You can see that grass and bushes now look a lot better and the terrain has a more fluid and less jagged feel. In addition the grass-land and fields are a bit more hilly, which helps infantry move by providing a bit more cover.

Here you can see how nice these improvements look, and how nice the uniforms now blend in to the terrain better. This is the capture point E2 –

New update named for Medal of Honor recipient Lucian Adams

A new update for a new year! having gone through the alphabet from A to Z naming updates after generals, for the next updates we’ll look at heroes of WW2, and instead of just sitting around here in HQ picking someone, we decided that YOU the players, the HEROES of the game should have a word.

So over Christmas we have had a thread running in our forum for suggestions and a name that kept popping up was >US S/Sgt. LUCIAN ADAMS.

He was suggested by a number of players and seconded by even more. The players that suggested Adams was Chamberpot_pie45, Pryvate_Jackson, DisasterMan25 & Kilowolf – so thank you for that and check your forum PM.

So the next update will be named

ADAMS – Ground Fire

Tune in today at 1500CET to our weekly Devstream on Twitch.tv at www.twitch.tv/heroesandgenerals – for the first sneak peaks of what this new update will bring!

Do you want to know WHY S/Sgt. Lucian Adams was awarded the Medal of Honor?
