Heroes & Generals taps into community feedback for new ‘Battle Flow’-update

p>November 8th, 2017 Copenhagen

The just released ‘Battle Flow’-update for the popular free-to-play World War 2 game Heroes & Generals introduces a large number of important level design tweaks all inspired by player suggestions.

“One of the most important elements for us as developers working on a live game like Heroes & Generals is the constant feedback from the players. It inspires us,” says Jacob Andersen, Game Director at Reto-Moto.

The ‘Battle Flow’-update makes several crucial tweaks to the large assault maps of Heroes & Generals like moving deploy zones and adding cover and new buildings in order to improve the gameplay and ensure even better battles on all maps. 

All of the tweaks are inspired by feedback and suggestions provided by a very engaged community that makes several thousand weekly posts on the Heroes & Generals website forum providing the developers with endless inspiration.

“It is equally valuable feedback when players post just a single solid suggestion as when they do sketches and stuff to convey their ideas on the game’s current content. Getting feedback is one of the things that makes game development for a live game fun,” says Jacob Andersen.
