In Heroes & Generals there are two types of battles that players can join and fight.
Staged battles are auto generated battles that are fought independently of the war with evenly balanced resources for all factions. War-battles are on the other hand based on the actions of the officers and generals controlling Assault Teams in the war. This means that sometimes these battle can be very uneven in terms of resources available for the players and thereby less fun to play.
The incoming Xylander (named after German general Wolf-Dietrich von Xylander) update brings a number of much requested uniform variations.
Ever since we introduced uniform (and weapon) variations they have been much loved by players wanting to customize their looks and this time we’re adding a new handful. We know that some players wanted more specific German variations and we have been digging through forum posts where a lively discussions of how the uniforms look and should look has taken place. We also introduce four new Soviet recon uniforms that we think you’ll like as well!
In the next update named Xylander the Soviet faction gets a new rifle as promised. In the last update we introduced the German StG44 and the American M1/M2 Carbine, as a high-level infantry weapons and here is the equivalent Soviet version. The Soviet players will get access to the Avtomaticheskaya Vintovka Simonova 1936 model (Автоматическая винтовка Симонова) aka the AVS-36.
