After a successful run in both Closed and Open Beta Danish developers Reto-Moto today released the increasingly popular free-to-play MMOFPS game, Heroes & Generals, on Steam. During its Early Access events Heroes & Generals attracted a huge community of over 7 million players thanks to its unique blend of online shooter and RTS mechanics alongside an impressive roster of over 120 unique weapons and vehicles for players to unlock and customize.
Despite joining the stagnating genre of online shooters Heroes & Generals stands alone out of the pack thanks to its persistent online game world that sees millions of players from around the world join forces to fight opposing factions – with each decision and battle outcome actually having an effect on the overall status of the current conflict. As a hero you’ll enter the fray on the frontlines of the battlefield utilizing various authentic World War II weapons and vehicles while generals handle the strategic elements of warfare such as distributing resources, defending supply lines and moving units to areas that need defending.
[quote cite=”Jacob Andersen, Game Director at Reto-Moto”]“One of the most unique features of Heroes & Generals is that you play together with thousands of other players in a big online war, and that everything you do in the individual battles influences the outcome of this war. Yet, you still have the close teamwork in the ground combat – elements that encourage players to be social, organize themselves and make friends within the community. We are very proud to launch Heroes & Generals. We have been working on the game for several years, and we look forward to continuing our work with expanding the game and the experience, adding features and content with regular updates for many years to come. This is only the beginning.” [/quote]
