Heroes and Generals Enters Open Beta
In the old days when Call of Duty sequels were still "new", game developers seemed to be infatuated with the idea of developing shooters set in World War I and II. Since then their desire to develop during historical time periods has seemingly faded and we've seen shooters progress towards modern day confrontations and into the future. However, with the release of Heroes and Generals into Open Beta there is arguably a marked return in interest towards venturing back to the war torn fields of Europe.
Heroes and Generals aims to be more then just your typical CoD clone. In fact the game has more in common with the massive MMOFPS Planetside then it does with any lobby based shooter. Players have the opportunity to engage in a variety of battles, fighting in trenches, flying planes, commanding tanks and even using bicycles at times to traverse the game's large maps. On top of all of this, the game adds another layer of tactical depth by allowing players to assume the 'Generals' role. These generals oversee the game from a tactical map completely outside of the normal FPS experience, allowing them to move reinforcement units to areas where players are currently engaged in battle. A reinforced area in battle can be granted extra lives, vehicles and other vital supplies necessary in order to turn the tide.
The Generals role is so important that Reto-Moto has even developed an iOS and Android app called Heroes & Generals: Mobile Command, which allows a player to stay up to date on important developments and move reinforcements on the go. One can only imagine how many will use this app in the bathroom.
