Teamplayers Rewarded in New Update for Heroes & Generals
Company: Reto-Moto
November 11th, 2016 Copenhagen

Having successfully launched the popular WW2 MMOFPS Heroes & Generals and reaching nine million registered players, Danish game studio Reto-Moto now releases the first post-launch update.

The new ‘Hallowes – XP for Friends’ update for Heroes & Generals has a strong focus on rewarding teamplay.
“We are aiming to make it both more fun and rewarding for soldiers to fight with their friends on the frontline,” says Jacob Andersen, Game Director at Reto-Moto.

Soldiers in Heroes & Generals will now get:
XP bonus when assisting in a kill
XP bonus when protecting the team’s tank
XP bonus when teammates use their vehicle’s weapons
Jacob Andersen continues: “As part of the update all maps have been improved to ensure a better gameflow and allow for more intense battles. Tweaks have been made to the animation system resulting in a smoother visual experience. And we have added more bicycles to the game.”

Heroes & Generals leaving the browser behind
Heroes & Generals has been available both through Steam and as a browser based game until now.
With the release of ‘Hallowes – XP for Friends’ the browser version is replaced by a new fully client-based game. A stand alone client that can be downloaded directly from the Heroes & Generals website for free.
For players playing through Steam, this has no impact on their game.

There are a number of reasons why Heroes & Generals is leaving the browser version behind.
Browsers such as Chrome and Firefox are in the process of phasing out support for plugins needed to make a game like Heroes & Generals work – the browser is no longer a suitable platform for a high end game experience.
Becoming a fully client-based game simplifies the development of Heroes & Generals. Only having to keep tabs on two similar versions of the game instead of testing everything in three different browsers frees up resources, that can be reinvested in the game.
Finally a fully client-based game is better suited for future development and features planned for Heroes & Generals.
The full changelog for the ‘Hallowes – XP for Friends’ update can be found here.
Heroes & Generals is available for free at and on Steam.

The Hallowes update is named after Odette Hallowes who went to work undercover in France as an allied spy. After being caught by the Germans she was tortured, interrogated and condemned to death, but ended up being sent to jail. She survived the war and is the only woman to have received the George Cross while still alive.
