Merry Christmas and a Happy New year to all of you! 2015 was a spectacular year for Heroes & Generals. Several major updates have been launched during the last year, and tons of content have been introduced to the game. Just to name a few highlights from 2015; Heroes & Generals surpassed 5 million players in May, the Timoshenko Update brought the Soviet Faction to the game, and 2015 has also seen the introduction of scopes for non-recon soldiers and several high-tier weapons including the German Sturmgewehr-44, the Soviet PPS-43 and the US M1/M2 Carbine. Personal uniforms, weapon and vehicle skins have also been added, and numerous skins are being prepared for 2016 – And we couldn’t have done it without every single on of you guys.
So to celebrate a wonderful 2015, it is time to give everyone a Ribbon Booster bundle as a present:
The Voucher is valid until January 4th 2016 12.00 CET
In the coming Walker update we are moving some ribbons around and adding a bunch of new ones.
We are rolling the rifle ribbons into a new “Infantry Assault” ribbon and the tank ribbons into one “Armor Assault” ribbon.
But what about my progress on the removed ribbons? We’ll take your progress from the individual ribbons and ADD them together, so a lot of you might start the new ribbon at a very high level, we thought this is the most fair thing to do.
ARMOR & INFANTRY ASSAULT
The two new ribbons introduced are the main ribbons for Infantry and Tankers and progress in these ribbons are unlocks weapons and vehicles in the different categories.
This coming weekend is Memorial Day weekend in the United States with Memorial Day itself on Monday.
This is a day honoring those who lost their lives in military service, similar to Remembrance Day in the British Commonwealth, Volkstrauertag in Germany, the ANZAC Day in Australia and New Zealand and many other days of remembrance all over the world.
We want to take this opportunity to remember the ones who have sacrificed their lives to secure the future of their nation, not ONLY in the United States but all over the world.
As you might have heard rumours of, a new antitank weapon is making its way from the factories to the fields of battle!
The German panzerschreck!
The Panzerschreck is closer in functionality to the American Bazooka and with new addition we have changed how anti-tank weapons are unlocked.
The new build named Newgarden (after the American Major General Paul Newgarden) is live on the servers! And here is a short update explaining the new features we’ve added for you to enjoy!
There is of course much more happening in the build, so continue reading for more details…
The new build ‘Newgarden’ is right around the corner and one of the bigger features introduced is the much requested character progression tree. In order to answer some of the questions that have popped up, we did a quick video interview with our Game Director Jacob ‘Reto.RedBjarne’ Andersen.
