Third letter from the CEO
“We have finalized planning our backend and toolchain work that I have mentioned before (we call those ‘Mission Critical’ projects) … these projects are complicated, and they will require time to get done. They are however necessary, because they are the foundation for us to provide you with a better service,” Reto.JM, CEO of RETO MOTO, explains in his third letter to the community.
You can read the letter from the CEO here.
Because the topics of the latest letter from the CEO are complicated, we have have decided to dedicate an entire Q&A & Why devstream next Wednesday to elaborate on the letter and to answer related questions you might have.
So remember to sign up to our Twitch channel, if you don’t want to miss out on Reto.JM’s live streaming debut.
We want to provide you the players with insight into what goes on behind the scenes of Heroes & Generals. This is the reason why we have chosen to make our Development Overview public, so you can see what we are working on at the moment.
Both the player-facing projects such as new content, features and maps are in the overview. But also the projects that are happening behind the scenes – development projects you as a player may never even notice, but that are necessary to do to keep the game going.
The Development Overview will be updated on a monthly basis.
Diving into weapon configuration
This Wednesday Reto.Christiano and Reto.Robotron3000 took a deep dive on Twitch into the Weapon Configurations of Heroes & Generals.
If you didn’t have the chance to watch the stream live on Twitch, you can now watch the full stream above.
And if you want to take a personal dive into all the Weapon and Ammunition Configuration Values talked about on the stream, you can find it all in this forum post.
Soviet Skirmish map ‘Khutor’ on Prototype server
We put an early preview of the Soviet Skirmish map ‘Khutor’ on Prototype server to give you a glimpse of how it is shaping up.
You should be aware that it is work in progress, and that when you get to peek directly into things in development, you get to see things that may appear (and may be) broken and weird looking.
The Khutor map will be on the Prototype server at least throughout this weekend
And if you want to know what is going to happen with the revision of the Factory map, you should give this forum thread a read.
Tales from the Western front
We wanted to give a shoutout to Mike Tyler and his Facebook page entitled Heroes & Generals: Tales from the Western front, where he is creating a Manga, based on the game.
We simply love to see all the creativity and dedication going into work like this – it’s really cool. Keep up the good work Mike Tyler, and please give his page a like.
Also we encourage all of you doing videos, artwork, comics, quilts or whatever to share your stuff in our Video & Pictures forum.
That is what lileikiss did when he made the cool Heroes & Generals trailer you can watch below:
