Heroes & Generals now has more players than Denmark has people

    
25

WW2-themed online shooter Heroes & Generals has logged its 7 millionth player this week.

Danish studio Reto-Moto called the milestone “a cool and magic milestone as it is more than there are people living in [its] home country.”

To celebrate, the studio is handing out a voucher code (“SEVEN”) that grants three days of veteran status in the game, provided you apply the code before Tuesday, February 16th.

JesLyck breetoplay Hah! Well, he had a baby hunter, but that wasn’t her name, so I think just a coincidence of a deep voice and accent! <3

I’ve played this. I think I’ve actually killed a couple people. But usually I just end up getting shot from behind or run over by a jeep

I just went to do a google search on the game and as I typed in the title, the second option down was “hacks” right after “wiki” lol

Seven million isn’t a good number to brag about in a WW2-themed game.

breetoplay JesLyck  Strange some years back, I saw one of your streams. And thought I could recognize the voice in the background. If he has played WOW and knew a Hunter named Ligeness say hello :)

JesLyck I have great fondness for Denmark… one of my dearest guildies and my right-hand man in gaming for well over a decade is Danish. :D

Seven million registered accounts… of which 6.9 million are inactive.  The game used to be populated a year or so back, then they rolled a ban wave and it nixed about 60% of the player base.  Yes, almost two-thirds were cheaters.  That tells you pretty much all you need to know about this game. Don’t bother.

A great game concept, with a terrible development team.

JesLyck Well, you have Unity Technologies that was founded in Copenhagen. So it is fair to say that a company from Denmark has probably influenced the gaming industry more than anything else over the past 5-8 years.
