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…
The in-game Store will be getting a new section in the coming Bauer update: bundles, packed with upgraded weapons, exclusive skins (such as the Black Locust SVT-40 featured on this screenshot), Ribbon Boosters and Veteran Memberships. This is something every player can look forward to.
We have just crossed the line of 7 MILLION registered Heroes & Generals! That is a lot of players, and we are very happy to see so many players in the game! Thank you for your support and we hope you’re having great fun with the game.
For a Danish developer-team 7 million players is a cool and magic milestone as it is more than there are people living in our home country. To pass this milestone really boosts our motivation in the effort to deliver a deep, fun and unique war game for our established and dedicated community and new players all over the world.
– Jacob Andersen, Game Director at Reto-Moto.
With players from 173 countries we TRULY do have a World War going and have players from more countries than what actually participated in WW2!
To celebrate this magic milestone we think that everyone should have a small present!
So here is a voucher for 3 DAYS FREE VETERAN MEMBERSHIP. As this weekend is the President’s Day holiday in the US, the voucher will stay active until early Tuesday morning, giving everybody the chance to redeem it and play.
Infantry! Infantry everywhere! After showing you the new M16 MGMC, the GAZ-AAA and the SdKfz 7/1, there are also a handful of other tweaks incoming for the infantry! In the coming update named Adams (after the American hero Lucian Adams) a number of tweaks and adjustments will enhance infantry gameplay.
WEAPON AND GUNPLAY TWEAKS
We have been digging through the stats for a while, listened (and read) a lot of feedback & talked to a number of players, and we have decided on a few tweaks to help improve the feel of the gunplay in the game. Most notably we are adjusting a number of values around the semi-auto rifles (the Gewehr 43, M1 Garand & Tokarev SVT-40) to make them more valuable as weapons for both new players and veterans.
