Today we are releasing the Update 1.10.1 for Heroes & Generals containing a bit of new content, tweaks and updates.
The Update 1.10.1 is a minor update as the game developers are busy working on the socalled Mission Critical projects that you might already have read about in the latest Letter from the CEO.
If you are curious about what we are working on at the moment, please go have a look at our Development Overview that is publicly available.
Extra attack lines on Factory
For a while now we wanted to add two extra attack lines to the Factory map making it match the other assault maps in the game – an improvement that has also been requested by the community.
Adding the extra attack lines to Factory provide more complexity to the map, and with the adjustments made to the existing lines, this results in fresh and new gameplay experiences on a map with better coherence.
You can read more about the changes to the Factory map in this blog post.
