World War 2 MMOFPS Heroes & Generals adds new fighter planes and simplified flight controls with the just released ‘Wings of War’-update.

The skies are about to become even more dangerous in Heroes & Generals as three new fighter planes are taking off and the addition of new options for flight controls makes it easier to be a pilot.

“Flying a plane in Heroes & Generals with the new default controls is basically as easy as aiming the mouse at where you want to go,” says Jacob Andersen, Game Director at Reto-Moto: “However, it takes skills to be a good pilot which is why we have chosen to include different types of flight control options in Heroes & Generals to suit individual play styles and to make it fun to be a pilot for both new and veteran players.” 

The three new planes in the ‘Wings of War’-update are:

With the addition of these planes all three factions in the game now have a Reconnaissance airplane, a Medium Fighter, and a Heavy Fighter – making a difference in both battles and the strategic part of Heroes & Generals.

The ‘Wings of War’-update also removes the recruitment limits, so players can now get a Tanker, Recon, Paratrooper, or Pilot when they want, no matter what Player Level they are.
