Ever dreamed of stepping into a WWII soldier’s shoes, and deciding the outcome of the war? The game Heroes and Generals may be for you! Set in the European theater, Heroes and Generals is a Browser Based FPS with beautiful graphics, and realism to boot.
The Heroes and Generals game is currently in beta, and is made by Reto-Moto, a game studio located in Denmark. A player creates an account then pick which army they want to join; the selection is between the Nazi Army, and the US Army.
The new character is then placed at the lowest rank of their respective military. Starting players gain access to a semi automatic rifle, and a smg, the starting weapon depend solely on the army they reside in.
Heroes and Generals game play consists of capture and hold style battles. The victors of these battles are the ones who capture, and hold as many points as possible, or the ones who force the enemy back so far that they have nowhere to spawn in.
Armies may also run out of troops or armor if a battle lasts for too long.
Soldiers may also level their skills by doing certain stuff, thus unlocking more weapons, or vehicles of their own. Throughout most levels, players can find civilian vehicles to make traveling easier, stuff like bicycles, or trucks.
Completing certain tasks in game will level up badges in a player’s collection. These badges will help unlock perks, and other items. During game play, players earn experience points by killing enemy players, and capturing or defending points on the map. Experience points work towards leveling up the character.
Upon leveling up, the player will be given the choice to switch to 1 of 3 different types of characters. They can become soldiers, tank commanders, air force pilots, and scouts.
Tank commanders get to spawn into battles with a tank. As a downside, the tank commanders cannot carry much ammunition; this is done to save weight.
Air force pilots get to fly airplanes, and parachute into battle if they lose control. The airplanes may also be used as bombers to slow enemy armor, or troop advances. They may also shoot down other airplanes to gain air superiority. When downed the pilots have use of a pistol or smg, but again cannot carry to much.
Finally scouts are the sniper class of the game. They have access to the snipers rifles. They can point out enemies to their comrades making them perfect for planning attacks.
When the war is finally over in the Heroes and Generals game, the scores are all tallied up, and the winner is declared. The war will begin a new, and players may choose which side they want to join. Progress will not be carried from one army to the other though.
