Heroes & Generals Update Adds A Ton Of New Tanks
There's a brand new update for Heroes & Generals, the free-to-play, crossbreed real-time strategy and first-person shooter game, combining the tactics and strategic warfare of World War II combat with the gritty, first-person experiences found current-day shooters.
Reto-Moto's free-to-play war game has been trucking along, making waves and earning stripes in the digital distribution space.
The game is still a pretty big work in progress, but the team has constantly and continually added new content to flesh out the gameplay experience; and more vehicles is definitely a step in the right direction.
You can check out some of the new tanks that Reto-Moto added into the game for both the Axis and the Allies, ensuring that they're about as accurate as possible and as deadly as they were in real life.
In addition to new tanks, there's also new personal vehicle inventory options, as explained by Jacob Andersen, Game Director at Reto-Moto...
“By introducing personal vehicle loadouts, where characters can own and upgrade the vehicles of their choice, and at the same time offer players to play as infantry, tanker, pilot and even as a General commanding the troops, I believe that we have something very unique compared to other online wargames.”
Heroes & Generals plays, in my opinion, a lot like Battlefield 2 with better graphics. There's a steady pace to the gameplay that focuses a lot more on tactical gameplay than running-and-gunning, so it feels a lot more grounded and dangerous, as opposed to being a giant canvas of targets painted on players' backs with auto-aiming and gameplay assists. In other words, this isn't another Call of Duty or Battlefield 3 (or 4) clone.
To help flesh out that “grounded” gameplay are two new guns: the US M3 Grease Gun and the German MP-34. They're both classified as entry level weapons, so it's unlikely that you'll be going full Rambo with either of the two, but you will be able to mount a sizable amount of offense using suppression fire and team tactics.
Heroes & Generals is available to play right now... for free, so there's no risk of having to put money into the game and finding out that it's about as broken as the American congressional system.
Nevertheless, if you're looking for a stable, visually engrossing World War II shooter without requiring a lot of financial dedication, you can check out the game by paying a visit to the official website.
