Heroes & Generals Open Beta

Square Enix announces the launch of open beta testing of Heroes & Generals, a World War II strategic MMOFPS from Danish developer Reto-Moto. This free-to-play game also offers a mobile app to help the busy general on the go the chance to stay in touch with the war. Here's word:

Heroes & Generals is a new Free2Play Massive Online FPS with a Strategic Multiplayer Campaign, set in the midst of World War II Europe, where Axis and Allies fight for control. The game uniquely merges epic first-person shooter action with a rich strategic layer, where your decisions have the power to turn the tide in a battle among thousands of online players. Players can choose to play as 'Heroes', fighting in the trenches, flying planes, commandeering tanks and other vehicles, or take control of the Battlefield as ‘Generals’, determining the strategic direction of the war and supporting fellow players by managing battlefield assets, army units and reinforcements.

Never miss out on important developments in the campaign while you are not actively playing. Stay updated on the progress of the war by downloading the free companion app Heroes & Generals: Mobile Command (available now for iOS and Android).

Heroes & Generals: Mobile Command gives you access to a live overview of your active campaign. Observe Battlefields, Supply Lines and Assault Teams in real-time, and with the help of a built in chat-client, you can stay in touch with your brothers in arms 24/7 from virtually anywhere.

Heroes & Generals will also be fully localized and soon available to play in Russian, German, French, Spanish, Czech and Polish.

Played the closed beta and couldn't get into it, the game uses an in-browser type game engine which at the time you couldn't tell it where you wanted to install - it just plopped it on your System drive though there was some sort of workaround to move the files if you wanted.

It was basically conquest mode from battlefield but the player movement and shooting just felt really clunky. It's been awhile but I think they had limits on what class you could pick sort of like Red Orchestra. Good luck going up against a sniper when all you have is some slow to aim enfield with iron sights.

The scope is just too big and at the end of the day you'll end up with a server population equivilant to Red Orchestra 2 - couple of hundred people.
