Steam Packs

As a new or veteran player you might have visited the in-game store and looked at all the cool stuff you could unlock and buy, but don’t feel you have the time to unlock and earn the credits for it – or maybe you’ve wondered what you should buy to get started on a new career.

So we have created 2 x 4 packs (4 per faction) loaded with Characters, Weapons, Vehicles, Gold, Veteran Membership and other cool stuff – all with a considerable discount compared to if you were to buy the items in the packs individually for gold.

These packs are now for sale on Steam as ‘Downloadable Content’, and they all exist in two versions: one for the US and one for the German faction – look under “Downloadable Content For This Game” just below the green “Play Game” button on our Steam store page.

Infantry Rookie Pack

A great starter pack for Heroes & Generals, that gives you a fully equipped Infantryman and an All Terrain Vehicle, plus gold and a Veteran Membership that boosts your XP-, ribbonpoints-, credits- and warfunds-earnings for 7 days.
US faction / German faction

Tank Crew Starter Pack

If you wish to start a career as Tanker in Heroes & Generals, then this pack is for you. It gives you a Tank Crewman with a selection of tanks and a tank destroyer, plus a submachine gun, a handgun and a wrench for repairing tanks. Besides you will also get a good amount of gold and a 14-day Veteran Membership.
US faction / German faction

All Heroes Pack

If you wish to be able to play all roles on the battlefields and don’t want to play for weeks or months to unlock all the Heroes and their weapons, equipment and vehicles, then this pack is for you as it gives you 5 characters with loads of gear and vehicles. It also includes a substantial amount of Gold and a 90-day Veteran Membership.
US faction / German faction

Ultimate Heroes & Generals Pack

This pack enables you to get the full Heroes & Generals experience, where you can play all roles as Heroes on the battlefields AND command Assault Teams as a General without first having to spend hours, weeks and even months of playtime to progress your characters and unlock weapons, equipment and vehicles. You will also get a huge amount of gold to allow for extra premium purchases and Veteran Membership for a whole year (365 days). This pack contains over 200 EUR/250 USD worth of in-game items, Veteran Membership and gold!

‘Rommel’ update is now Live!

The new build named Rommel (after the German field marshal Erwin J. Rommel) is live on the servers! So here’s a quick overview of the new features we’ve added for you to enjoy!

New Features

Generals and Officers

We have expanded the ranks all the way to Field Marshal and made major improvements to the strategic gameplay. Generals and other commanding officers are now characters that equip Assault Teams, starting with their own branch of the armed forces and then expanding to other branches. Read more about the Generals here.

New Weapons: FG42 & M1 Carbine

In the last build we re-introduced the paratroopers and a LOT of players asked for paratrooper specific weapons, these are here now; the German Fallschirmjägergewehr 42 and the American M1 Carbine. If you want to know more about these awesome new toys, take a look here.

New victory conditions

Looking at the map you will notice that there are more important cities marked with a star symbol (★). These are the strategically important cities that determine the winner of the war. To learn more about how this new feature works, take a look at this blog post.

Vehicle Wrench tool

For a long time a heavily damaged tank has just been a useless chunk of metal, most tankers would abandon them and try their luck on foot, but now you haev a choice! The repair wrench is available for Tankers, Infantry and Recon and can be used to repair damaged vehicles. This takes time and is best performed away from danger. If you want to know more about this terrific tool, read more here.

Official Twitch channel

We have started a Friday devstream on Twitch, where we will broadcast live from Reto-Moto HQ and show new features, answer player questions and maybe show off what we are working on for the coming builds. In case you missed our first episode, you can check out the recording on youtube here.

There is of course much more happening in the build, so continue reading for more details…

Rommel Feature: Multiple Capitals

In the upcoming build named Rommel we are introducing a new addition to the strategic layer of the game – Expanded Victory Conditions.


We are changing the condition for winning a war in Rommel. Before we only had one capital per faction, and you could win by capturing the enemy capital. But now we have expanded the campaign map to a much larger part of Europe and there are now 15 capitals (and other strategically important cities) in total.

Feature: New Adjustable Wrench; tool & weapon

In the upcoming build named Rommel we are introducing a new piece of equipment – The Adjustable (or Monkey) Wrench.

The Wrench is a very versatile tool that can be used to repair vehicles from bicycles over cars and half tracks to tanks.
