Soviet AVS-36, new uniforms, new weapon skins, “Battle Director” and more available in just-released Xylander Update
This brand-new update brings a lot of new features – AVS-36 (and its’ bayonet) to help fight the Sturmgewehr 44 and M1/M2 carbines released in Walker, Town and Factory Map updates, XP-bonuses for War battles, credit earnings update and new “Battle Director“! The update is named ‘Xylander’ after the German Major General Wolf-Dietrich von Xylander (there are not that many people named something with X), and here’s a quick overview of the new features we’ve added for you to enjoy!
There is a new build up on our live servers called ‘Bradley’. We have started naming our builds so it’s easier for both you and us to communicate about the various builds throughout the development phase.
Heroes & Generals – Beta Videolog 2: Bradley showing weapon tweaks, new ‘Town’ Map layout and a walkthrough of Weapon Modifications.
Some of the new things includes an improved and easier to understand weapon modification system and a slightly modified character system, which means that we had to reset the servers and your player stats, because the old system and the new one aren’t compatible.
As promised all gold bought with ‘real money’ are refunded as gold, and all War Bonds are of course intact. Should you find that this is not the case, then please contact support.
