Heroes & Generals, the free-to-play first-person shooter and strategy title, has passed more than eight million registered users, publisher and developer Reto-Moto has revealed today.
“We built Heroes & Generals from the ground up to be a unique World War II game, and to surpass eight million players is an achievement that makes everyone at Reto-Moto proud,” says Martin Pollas, CEO at Reto-Moto.
“To see players having fun in the game every day is a continuous inspiration to the small but very dedicated team of game developers at Reto-Moto striving to make the game even better.”
Reto-Moto’s announcement also coincides with Heroes & Generals’ two-year Steam anniversary.
“Two years ago we were one of the first ten games to be Greenlit by the community on Steam — that was an important event for the company and the game,” Pollas explained.
“Being on Steam has been instrumental in growing the player base and strengthening our very engaged community. We look forward to keep on improving the game and bringing more content to players.”
Reto-Moto has continued to support its web-based World War II shooter with several additions, including new weapons, vehicles, tanks, uniforms and a squad system.
According to the Danish developer, it has made “12,716 tweaks and improvements to the game and squashed 3,137 bugs.”
Heroes & Generals is still in its open beta form on PC, with an official release date yet to be confirmed for the title.
