Heroes And Generals Lands On Steam's Early Access
After many years in development, struggling hard through the Greenlight phase and finally getting through the beta process, Reto-Moto's Heroes & Generals has officially launched on Steam's Early Access platform.
The game has launched onto Early Access with a brand new launch trailer to help commemorate the game's milestone achievement in the development process. The trailer is all kinds of awesome as it does absolutely nothing to showcase or tell gamers what the game is about, or how the game is played or what some of the awesome features are housed in the game's unique strategy-meets-shooter-game mixture, but the trailer does an amazing job of amping up players and wanting them to get neck-deep into the game's content.
Check it out below.
The game itself is a mix of first-person shooter mechanics and real-time strategy organizational gameplay, hence the name Heroes & Generals. Some players will want to take the fight to the ground; shooting fast and furious across expansive battlefields while also taking part in operating some high-end tech from the World War II era, such as tanks, jeeps, planes and even bicycles.
On the opposite end of the fence are the generals, the guys and gals who use their wits and mindful prowess to strategically setup the best troop formations, as well as find the best methods to mobilize armor to put a stop to enemy advancements.
The game has been slowly moving through the design process to capture a more authentic simulation feel, coming far and along from its sort of “Rambo”-esque comparisons from early in development.
The team has also been vigilant in expanding the game's content, ratcheting up the amount of usable tanks, planes, weapons and artillery.
For gamers who have already been participating in the game's beta before it landed on Early Access, it's still possible to use your original account information and tie it into the Steam client. Alternatively, you can still access the game's browser from the official Heroes & Generals website.
Martin Munk Pollas, Managing Director at Reto-Moto commented about the game's release, saying...
"Heroes & Generals was one of the first 10 games to be Greenlit by the Steam community and the interest we saw for our game during the initial Greenlight days was unbelievable!" ... "So we're thrilled to finally welcome the Steam players and offer them to enlist for duty, climbing the ranks as soldiers on the battlefields and maybe even rise to command armies and lead their faction towards victory."
Given the amount of time this game has been in development – and considering that it's free-to-play – it's almost impossible to say that Reto-Moto landed on Early Access just so they can drop the game, take the money and run. They've put a heck of a lot of blood, sweat and tears into Heroes & Generals.
You can see how well the game has turned out by paying a visit to the official website or by visiting the official Steam Early Access page.
