Heroes and Generals quilts together a patch out of player suggestions

Ever wonder if your game’s developers are listening? Heroes and Generals’ players don’t have to; they know the team is hanging on their every word.

The World War II multiplayer game released its Battle Flow patch on Wednesday, an update that was cobbled together mainly from the suggestions of players themselves. “One of the most important elements for us as developers working on a live game like Heroes and Generals is the constant feedback from the players. It inspires us,” said Reto-Moto Game Director Jacob Andersen.

The bulk of these suggestions for Update 1.09 were worked into changes to large assault maps for better flow and play. The patch also contains new helmet skins, more vehicle paint jobs, and an in-game bulletin screen. Get an overview of the patch from the devs themselves after the break!

Heroes and Generals adds a trio of medium fighters, brings back leaderboards

It’s time to flip that Chutes & Ladders game board and graduate to something a little more advanced. Perhaps Heroes and Generals’ new Planes and Ladders update instead?

The centerpiece of Update 1.08 is a trio of medium fighters for players to unlock and fly. The new planes added in this patch are the Soviet Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-3, the German Messerschmitt Bf 109D-1, and the US Seversky P-35A.

Leaderboards are also returning to the game in this patch, but allegedly better than their previous incarnation. Now players can see if they’re the highest scoring yahoo, have the most control points captured, sniped the most enemies, and so on.

We’ve got the update overview video for you below, and because we love you so much, we’ve also included the game’s latest community Q&A session!

Heroes and Generals orders a tactical strike on cheaters

The World War II MMO Heroes and Generals is fighting more than just the Nazis this week. The team announced that it was performing another ban wave to rid the community of cheaters using third-party software to gain advantages.

“Our policy is zero tolerance, zero leniency, and zero exceptions,” the team said. “Anyone who is found to have, at any point in time, used any kind of third-party software designed to cheat while playing Heroes and Generals will lose their accounts once the cheat has been confirmed. Do not ‘try out’ a cheat, not even once: You will be permanently banned on all accounts.”

The MOP Up: Guns of Icarus has relaunched as Guns of Icarus Alliance (April 2, 2017)

Let’s kick things off with Guns of Icarus’ reimaginationing. It’s the thing to do these days: relaunch your game with a new mode and name. But Guns of Icarus Online is taking the trope a step further toward the MMORPG genre instead of away from it with its replacement release of what it’s calling Guns of Icarus Alliance; it’s basically adding co-op PvE to the existing PvP mix. It’s also adding a new pricetag: Even former Guns of Icarus Online players will have to shell out for the new game, though with a nice discount.

Heroes & Generals abandons browser client, implements team-oriented patch

Danish games studio Reto-Moto has pushed out a new update for World War II MMOFPS Heroes & Generals just in time for Veterans Day. Dubbed “Hallowes – XP for Friends,” the patch is intended to encourage cooperation by rewarding players experience for assisting in kills, protecting tanks, and driving weapon-bedecked vehicles while allowing teammates to shoot from them.

H&G is also abandoning its browser client in favor of a standalone, chiefly because browser plugins are going extinct and maintaining multiple clients was too time-consuming.

“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.”
