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.
In the upcoming Xylander update that we are currently testing, Reto.Desji and Reto.RedBjarne are including a round of tweaks and updates to the Town map and the Factory map. In a previous devstream we managed to corner BOTH of them and made them show these changes.
So take a look here

In the next update named Xylander the Soviet faction gets a new rifle as promised. In the last update we introduced the German StG44 and the American M1/M2 Carbine, as a high-level infantry weapons and here is the equivalent Soviet version. The Soviet players will get access to the Avtomaticheskaya Vintovka Simonova 1936 model (Автоматическая винтовка Симонова) aka the AVS-36.
Following the ‘Walker’ update, we can celebrate our 1 year anniversary on Steam for Heroes & Generals. Since the Early Access release in July 2014, the community has grown to more than 5.5 million players! We have added a lot of new gear, added a lot of new features, and thanks to our awesome community we have fixed lots of bugs and tweaked gameplay and balancing using performance stats and community feedback.
Once again we thank you for your support and we look forward to deliver more content, more features and, with your help, constantly work on improving the game for many years to come!
While we are still hard at work getting the Walker update ready for you all, it is time to lift the curtain and reveal some of the awesome new features this update brings! The update is called ‘Walker’ after the American Major General Fred L. Walker.
A map that has been around for quite a while is the Factory map, and this time reto.Desji managed to find time in between his other very secret work to give it a makeover, addressing a lot of the major and minor annoyances on the map, as well as adding a solid handful of new tweaks to improve the level.

Monday, June 22nd marks the anniversary of the beginning of Operation Bagration in 1944, a major Soviet offensive pushing west into Poland and Belarus aimed at driving the German forces out!
The date was chosen to be the same calendar day as when Germany invaded the Soviet Union in Operation Barbarossa in 1941. So in effect this is a double anniversary. We want to commemorate Operation Bagration by giving you all a present this weekend!
After the Vasilevsky update rolled out on the servers we have spent a lot of time looking at player performance, trawled the forums and generally been gathering more information on what the community likes and dislikes.
This coming weekend is Memorial Day weekend in the United States with Memorial Day itself on Monday.
This is a day honoring those who lost their lives in military service, similar to Remembrance Day in the British Commonwealth, Volkstrauertag in Germany, the ANZAC Day in Australia and New Zealand and many other days of remembrance all over the world.
We want to take this opportunity to remember the ones who have sacrificed their lives to secure the future of their nation, not ONLY in the United States but all over the world.
