With a growing and friendly community and a focus on team play, the innovative action game Heroes & Generals has succeeded in bringing players from all around the globe together, forming lifelong friendships.

More than 8.5 million players from 194 countries have already signed up to fight for victory and friends in the midst of World War 2, playing as Germany, the United States or the Soviet Union.

"You play together with thousands of other players in a big online war. Yet, you still have the close teamwork in the ground combat – elements that encourage players to be social, organize themselves and make friends within the community," says Jacob Andersen, Game Director at Reto-Moto.

The Team Always Has Your Back

Heroes & Generals is a complete war experience, where your team always has your back. Every single player makes a difference, but you win, lose and make friends as a team.

You play as heroes fighting on the frontline, flying planes, parachuting and commanding vehicles ranging from ordinary bicycles to heavily armored tanks as you take part in one grand, persistent online war fought by players across the world. Some players even take control of the war as generals determining the strategic direction.

As a player, everything you do matters. You have a sense of purpose in the war and a reason to form lasting bonds with your brothers in arms.

Make a difference – Fight for Friends.

Created by Industry Veterans

Heroes & Generals is developed and published by the independent Danish game studio Reto-Moto, established in 2008 by the original creators of the successful Hitman series.
