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."
