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
Are you enjoying your 5 times increase in first win of the day Gold bonus? The Christmas 2015 Event offers even more! Today we introduce Weapon of the Weekend which can be found in the special Christmas Crates.
THE CHRISTMAS CRATES ARE NOW LIVE!
Weapon of the Weekend? Christmas Crates? What are those things?
HOW IT WORKS: Depending on the map size, every time a mission starts, a random number of Christmas Crates will spawn on different locations. Painted in red and green, these easily recognizable crates will contain one Weapon of the Weekend special high-tier weapon. The Christmas Crate is single-use only, so once the crate has been used, the player will receive the given weapon, and the crate will disappear from the battlefield. You will get to try the weapon until you die, then you have to go find another crate if there are any crates left on the map.
A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS EVENT
TALES FROM THE FRONT LINES
As Christmas is slowly descending upon our boys on the front lines, we at Heroes and Generals would like to make this holiday season even more jolly with this short Christmas 2015 Tales from the Front Lines story.
In the coming update named Young (after US brigadier-general Gordon Russell Young) we’re adding a brand-new weapon to the game. The much requested Soviet submachinegun the PPS-43 or as it is known in Russian the ППС – “Пистолет-пулемёт Судаева” (Pistolet-pulemyot Sudaeva) which translates as Sudaeva’s submachinegun.
The Soviet PPS-43 unlocks on the SMG Assault Ribbon at Rank 11 as the THIRD Soviet SMG. It is a compact and light SMG with good handling and range.
Soviet troops are marching! And beside (and behind) the tanks we have recently shown, infantry advances. These soldiers carry a selection of weapons, including SMGs, light machineguns & semi-automatic rifles. Among them are the SVT-40 Semi-Automatic rifle and the PPD-40 Tier 1 Submachine-Gun.
Yesterday we gave you a glimpse of the new character iteration which will improve the realism when aiming your weapon in the Oster build. This will have a noticeable impact on the dynamics of firefights, but it won’t be the only thing that changes when it comes to weapon simulations. Our game design team has gone through the weapon range and damage values, and made some adjustments. In addition, grenades have been made more deadly!
