Swiss Faction Confirmed!

The next major update will have a new faction, which is one of the smaller, but not unimportant nations of WWII: the Swiss faction. It is a neutral faction that cannot initiate the first attack towards any of the other factions, but if attacked by a faction it will then be able to perform attacks towards that faction for the remainder of the War, but only within the region of Switzerland.

The first and only Assault Team and soldier type available for the Swiss faction is Recon, but in coming updates we will add further Assault Teams and soldier types. The Swiss Recon soldiers will be armed with K31/43 rifles with 2.8x Scopes and a Swiss Army Knife as default weapon. The Swiss Faction will be the only Faction in which Soldiers will earn Gold instead of Credits.
In the upcoming weeks we will reveal more information about the Swiss faction…

Tune in on today’s devstream#68 at 15:00 UTC +1 for more details about the next update…

Coming soon: M1A1 Carbine with folding stock – Young update expands the US arsenal

Rejoice US Tankers and Paratroopers. In the coming update named Young (after US brigadier-general Gordon Russell Young) comes the M1A1 carbine with folding stock.

As the weapon was designed to be a light and compact weapon, it only requires 4 equipment slots. This makes it available to US tankers and it allows for new tactical options for US paratrooper loadouts.

Paratroopers can unlock it on the Parachute Ribbon at Rank 11 as the Second paratrooper carbine.

Or it unlocks for tankers on the Armour Damage Ribbon at Rank 9 as the Second tank weapon.

The handling is quite similar to the existing M1M2 Carbine.

What’s the best thing about Heroes & Generals?
You mean the awesome free-2-play RTS/FPS game? The game where assault teams are under your command (if you so wish)? Where you can sit patiently in an abandoned ruin and snipe incoming enemies? That game? The one where you can hurl an armor piercing piece of ‘OMG’ at enemy vehicles? Where you can fly planes, rush capture points, fire bazooka’s, silently sneak up and end a foe’s misery with a knife? Listen as the silence grows, just before the madness starts? Hmm – I don’t know…bikes?

Featured Developer Alex Chinchen (Reto.Chinch)


First of all, what is your gamertag in Heroes & Generals, and what’s the story?
My “official” gamertag is Reto.Chinch, although I generally don’t use this in-game – I have a number of different accounts I use depending on what I’m up to… ‘Chinch’ is an abbreviation of my rather unusual surname (and is apparently slang for numerous other things if Urban Dictionary is to be believed…), so it seemed the obvious choice, really.

What is your position at Reto-Moto?
I’m a Community Manager, working alongside Reto.Robotron3000 and Reto.Circinus and the rest of the Reto guys, but am based out of the Square Enix office in sunny, sunny London.

For how long have you been working here?
I’ve been with Square Enix for around 6 years now, but I’m a relatively new recruit to the Heroes & Generals ranks: I only joined the project in September of this year.

What games have you worked on?
I’ve mainly been working on games out of our Japanese studios up until now, with Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn being my main focus over the last couple of years, but have also helped out with various bits and pieces on other stuff like Tomb Raider, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Hitman: Absolution, as well as some of our mobile games, so a pretty wide-ranging list, really.

Which tools do you use for making Heroes & Generals?
Anything that I can get my hands on! I’m mostly focusing on the game channels like Facebook, YouTube & Twitter, and obviously the forums and the blog (although I’ve not been posting much yet, I’m often lurking there…) I’m also looking at bringing new things into the mix soon, such as Twitch.tv, to make sure we’ll be getting as much cool stuff out to our players in the most interesting ways we possibly can

What are your hobbies?
I’m obviously big into games of all kinds, whether PC, console, board or mobile; I love books and music, and am a big fan of interesting and unusual beers (which we have a rather good selection of here in England).

What’s the best thing about Heroes & Generals?
The fact that everything that happens in the game is driven by the decisions of real people is so cool – it’s such an ambitious concept, and I really do think that what the dev team have managed to achieve so far is pretty incredible.

What’s the best thing about working at Reto-Moto?
It’s very exciting working on a game that is constantly evolving and expanding over time, especially as our players are right there with us on every step of that journey.

What are you working on right now?
I’m mostly working on lots of exciting things behind the scenes for next year that will hopefully help to bring lots of new soldiers to the war!

What are your favorite games of all time?
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, X-Com: Enemy Unknown, Goldeneye (N64 version, of course), WoW, Fallout 3, C&C, Minecraft, Broken Sword, Grim Fandango…I could go on all day if you’d let me…

What are your favorite movies?
Maltese Falcon, Build My Gallows High, Sideways, The Usual Suspects, The Royal Tenenbaums, Pulp Fiction, Synecdoche, New York and pretty much anything Studio Ghibli, to name a few.
