Have you had a chance to see the six time Oscar nominated movie Hacksaw Ridge yet? We did – and we think it is a pretty cool movie.
Hacksaw Ridge is about the World War 2 experiences of Desmond Doss, who was an American combat medic. The movie is directed by Mel Gibson and stars Andrew Garfield as Doss.
Actually the movie inspired us to introduce medkits into Heroes & Generals – something that has also been a much requested feature by the community. The medkits will be in the upcoming ‘Medic!’-update releasing March 21st.
The medkits will be available for all three factions and all soldier types in the game and enable you to heal both yourself and and your friends in the hellfire of battle – giving you just that extra edge needed to win the battle. We will reveal further details on medkits at a later date.
Exclusive movie and medkit bundle
Obviously Heroes & Generals and Hacksaw Ridge have the fact that both are set in the midst of World War 2 in common. However, there is also a shared dna beyond genre as a central theme to both movie and game is the notion, that one man’s actions and courage can make a difference in the war.
That is why we at Reto-Moto reached out to Lionsgate and Valve to put together an exclusive Steam bundle featuring the Hacksaw Ridge movie, a 14 day Veteran Membership and the Heroes & Generals Medkit & Medic Ribbon Boosters pre order DLC. This bundle is only available on Steam and only to US customers.
If you live outside of US, you can still get a hold of the Heroes & Generals Medkit & Medic Ribbon Boosters DLC as a stand alone Steam pre order DLC. It contains a medkit for one soldier plus 5 x Medic Ribbon Booster.
Please note that the Medkit and Medic Ribbon Booster will be made available to you in-game on March 21st, while the 14 day Veteran Membership will be activated on your first login after purchasing the DLC.
The Hacksaw Ridge/Heroes & Generals bundle and the Heroes & Generals Medkit & Medic Ribbon Boosters DLC is available until March 14th 2017.
