‘Battle Director’ handling war battles coming in Xylander Update

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.

More soldier outfits on their way from the tailor!

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!

The update is named ‘Walker’ after the American Major General Fred L. Walker, and here’s a quick overview of the new features we’ve added for you to enjoy!

New Features

 

New Scopes

In this update we’re updating and expanding the selection of scopes in the game. We’re introducing a nice selection of low power scopes and limiting the high power scopes to recons. Read more and see the new scopes here.

StG44 & M1/M2 Carbine

This update adds the much requested StG44 assault rifle for the German faction and the M1/M2 Carbine for the American as well as Selective Fire (switch between semi- and full-auto) on supported weapons. You can read more about the new weapons in this blog post.

Factory Map Updates

We’ve gone through the Factory Map and given it a lot of updates to improve balancing and make it a LOT MORE FUN. Check out the details in this blog post.

Vehicle Balance Pass

In this update, all tanks and tank destroyers have been visited by the mechanic and armor plates measured and adjusted, and cannons tweaked and balanced. Read more about the changes here.

New Ribbons & Ribbon level completion

Walker also brings a bunch of new ribbons! We have given each vehicle and weapon their own specialist ribbon to progress that will unlock upgrades for that weapon/vehicle. We have merged some of the ribbons that did not unlock much into the broader Infantry and Armor Assault ribbons. AND now you can complete the individual ribbon levels using gold and currently also credits. Read more about the updates here.

New Ribbons & unlocks in Walker update

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.

CONVERSION

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.

New Scopes coming for all factions in Walker update!

Among all the other awesome new weapons, vehicle tweaks, etc. we must not forget that the Walker update ALSO brings a solid handful of new scopes to the game.

We know the gameplay with scoped rifles is loved by a lot of players, so this is something we have wanted to expand for a while. BUT this said, the different classes still have their different purposes on the battlefield, and we think it is much more fun if these differences are expanded by for example not giving everybody access to all scopes, but limiting the high end scopes to the recon class.
