Rommel Feature: GENERALS!

Ach-TUNG!

Notice that silence? You can hear flies buzzing. There are thousands of boots lined up on the landing strip but no movement, not a sound. The atmosphere is heavy with the authoritative presence of the lone character who is just now stepping out of his personal transport. Who commands such obedience and discipline? The General, that’s who!

With the imminent arrival of the aptly-named Rommel build, the time has come to unveil a major change in the strategy portion of Heroes & Generals: namely, that Officers and Generals will now be actual characters, with direct command of their own Assault Teams. This means new ranks will now become available. So how does it work? Read on.

Quesada is online!

The new build named Quesada (after the US General Elwood Richard “Pete” Quesada) is live on the servers! So here’s a quick overview of the new features we’ve added for you to enjoy!

New Features

Paratroopers returning to battle

The Paratrooper class is now back! Their planes are now polished and looks awesome, and there is an AI that controls the plane, to let all paratroopers fight. Read more about the paratroopers AND their uniform personalizations here.

Uniform Variations

You can now customize your soldiers with new uniforms, as we have introduced uniform variations for some of the classes. In this update the US Recon, US Paratrooper, German Tank Crew, German Recon and German Paratrooper characters can get new uniforms, while the rest of the classes will have to wait a bit for variations to be added in future updates.

New ammo types for vehicles

In this update we have started to add more ammo types for the vehicles, plus we have updated the user interface, to make it easier to see which ammo types you have available, how fast it reloades and how you change between them when you’re engaged in battle. It’s not all vehicles that now have more ammo types available, but try to log in and see if there are new explosive toys available for your favourite vehicle. In the coming updates we’ll add more.

Heroes & Generals coming soon to Steam

As many, many players have requested and asked for we are now coming to the Steam platform. Take a look at our Steam page here, and stay tuned for more info! You can already grab one of our avatars for your steam profile by clicking here.

More weapon personalization

The US Bazooka and the German Panzerschreck now have a new set of personalization options and we have also made a special “Gott mit uns” variation of the Gewehr 43, as well as a “Death or Glory” variation of the M1 Garand. Take a look at the Panzerschreck and Bazooka personalizations here.

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

Feature: Personalize your Bazookas & Panzerschrecks!

Tired of looking at the same old Bazooka? Want to stand out from the Anti-Tank crowd?
Then look no further! In the coming build ‘Quesada’ we have added a new batch of weapon personalizations, this time for the Bazookas and Panzerschrecks.

Continue reading to see the rest of the awesome new paint-jobs for the anti tank weapons!

Feature: Paratroopers are coming back!

LOOK UP!

Paratroopers are getting ready to jump! In the next build named Quesada (after the United States Army Airforce general Elwood Richard Quesada) paratroopers will fly back into action!

Jump into action!

If you have an Infantry soldier at rank 7 or above you can transfer him to the paratroopers! Paratroopers are not as heavily armed as other soldiers and cannot carry Machineguns, Panzerschreck/Bazookas so if you have purchased a lot of heavy equipment for your soldier, it might be an idea to play another soldier up to rank 7 and convert him. Or if you don’t have the time for that you can buy an academy trained paratrooper for gold. Keeping at least one normal infantry soldier is always a good idea to help minimize waiting times when EVERYBODY wants to play with a specific type of soldier.
