Reto-Moto has released the biggest update to date for its free to play World War 2 MMO first-person shooter, Heroes & Generals. According to the developers, the core elements of the game have been more or less ripped out to facilitate a large number of gameplay changes, feature upgrades and implementations.
Titled ‘Deploy! Drive! Destroy!’, this update offers a total rebalancing of the more than 70 vehicles available for soldiers to own. Moreover, all vehicles have been fitted with a completely new armor and damage system as well as upgraded handling adding significant detail and depth to the game.
Jacob Andersen, Game Director at RETO MOTO, said:
“In the ‘Deploy! Drive! Destroy!’-update we ripped out key elements of the game and rebuilt them for a richer and deeper gameplay experience. We not only wanted to make heavy tanks as badass as you would expect, we wanted to add value to ALL vehicles in Heroes & Generals and create a diverse and balanced battlefield.”
Here are the key features of the ‘Deploy! Drive! Destroy!’ update:
- New armor system for all vehicles. Now it really DOES matter WHERE and HOW you attack an enemy vehicle.
- New damage system lets you immobilize vehicles with critical hits to components such as engine, fuel tank or ammunition, gun turret, wing, rudder and so on.
- Vehicle handling has been upgraded and every vehicle have had their physics redone from scratch.
- New terrain system implemented on all maps makes sure roads, grass and mud affects your driving just like you would expect.
- Simpler and more flexible deploy system makes it easier to setup a squad with your friends and play the soldier you want to play in battle.
Jacob Andersen added:
“This update truly goes to the core of the game benefiting all players. It represents a major undertaking for Heroes & Generals – we have been working on it for a long time and in the process updated and consolidated a range of complex behind the scenes systems giving us more options for the future. We want to extend our gratitude to our very engaged community who joined the public test server and provided very valuable feedback to make this update even better.”
