So fetch the tin of biscuits, grab a cup of tea, get settled in the comfy chair and enjoy the adventures of our British.. Sorry… “AMERICAN” friends :-)
And if you missed the ingame action: Take a look here: Yogscast Gameplay #1: Going Commando & Hat Films Zee Germans #1.

We are really sorry that the servers are struggling, and can only assure you that we are doing our very best to get the bottlenecks fixed.
Hot on the heels of our own tank trailer is another treat for you all. The elite soldiers of Yogscast have been sent deep behind enemy lines to show you how to fight a war in perfect historical detail!. So fetch the tin of biscuits, grab a cup of tea, get settled in the comfy chair and enjoy the adventures of our British.. Sorry… “AMERICAN” friends :-)
BEHIND ENEMY LINES
Stay tuned for more Episodes and fun videos in the coming days!
We have made a special trailer to highlight the awesome new tanks as well as a brief look at the new personal vehicle loadout feature. We also plan to make a Patton videolog, as we usually do for a new release, but until then, take a look at the new trailer, show it to your friends and help us spread the word!
9 New Goddamned Tanks!
So after saying “Jagdpanzer acht-und-dreißig T“, ten times in a row, we uploaded the video and we hope you like it.
If you want to know more about the tanks featured take a look at the blog bosts detailing ‘personal vehicles‘, the ‘light tanks‘, the ‘medium tanks‘ and as we mentioned in our previous video “Wars aren’t won by TANKS alone“, but they SURE do help.
We are in the progress of polishing up a bunch of new toys for you at a scale you haven’t seen from us before! A series of massive updates bringing loads of new weapons and vehicles, plus some really cool new features will hit the live servers over the next few weeks, and we’re dying to present this to you – but… no spoilers… You’ll just have to wait and see ;-)
Yes, we know it’s not fair to tease you like that, but stay tuned – the new updates will hit the live servers before you can say “Jagdpanzer acht-und-dreißig T”, ten times in a row.
Wars Aren’t Won By TANKS Alone Trailer
To celebrate the upcoming content-fest, we are proud to present our new Heroes & Generals “Wars Aren’t Won by Tanks Alone” gameplay trailer showcasing the various different roles you can take in the persistent war between Axis and Allies in the European theater of war and reminding you that you need soldiers to win a war – not just tanks and planes… ;-)
A shout out goes to the dedicated community-members who helped us stage these scenes and an Academy Award, BAFTA & Emmy goes to them for their performance as actors, when we captured these fantastic in-game shots – thanks for all the late hours you put in!
The new build ‘Oster’ is online with a lot of exciting new stuff! With Easter upon us we managed to lure Reto.Colding and Reto.Gargamel into the editing booth with promises of all the eggs and bunnies they could eat. Reto.Gargamel is taking over the narrator duties from Reto.KenSolo so please be kind to the new voice :-)
Take a look here:
As you may have seen, we’ve been revealing many details about the upcoming Oster build on the blog over the past couple of weeks, and the response we’ve had so far has been fantastic. Reading about all the exciting things we’re bringing in with the next build is all well and good, but we thought it might be nice to do something a little different and actually show you some of the new features in action!
Before we release a new build, we have a small squadron of loyal soldiers wreaking havoc on our test server, doing their best to break anything and everything they can. It was these grizzled veterans who, along with the help of a couple of our most battle-hardened community members, took on the task of putting together this small teaser trailer to give you a taste of some of the new toys that will soon be arriving on the battlefields.
These behind-the-scenes Heroes did such a good job of it that we decided to release it as an official video on our YouTube channel. Have a look, get excited, then let us know which of the new features coming in Oster that you’re most looking forward to in the comments below.
With a new week upon us, we thought that those of you might not have seen it on our Facebook page should also have a chance to see this gem of a trailer from K120, one of our veteran players who has a bit of a track record for creating awesome trailers from the game.
This time around, K120 donned his directorial helmet and took to the battlefields in order to capture the German forces in action, and the result is this trailer, simply titled “Wehrmacht” which is well worth a watch.
This year, we’re really looking to ramp up the amount of videos we release (a kind of New Year’s resolution of ours, if you will), and to help us achieve this we want to get our players involved in the process to help us capture all of the very best moments from the battlefields!
If you’re interested in getting involved with H&G video capture (and picking up some Gold in the process) head over to this thread on the forum and find out more:
NB: Reto.Robotron3000’s New Year’s resolution is to “not eat a single unripe gooseberry in 2014″ which might be the most easily kept AND useless New Year’s resolution in a long time.
