In May of last year developers Reto-Moto announced that their free-to-play MMO, Heroes & Generals, had hit the five million player milestone, and that number has continued to grow as the developer unveils the game’s latest milestone.
As the game hits its two year Steam anniversary, Reto-Moto have revealed that Heroes & Generals has surpassed the 8 million player milestone.
“We built Heroes & Generals from the ground up to be a unique World War II game, and to surpass 8 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.”
During the this past year, the developers have continued to expand the already massive game with new weaponry, vehicles, tanks, uniforms, and a brand new Squad system. They’ve also made almost 13,000 tweaks and improvements to the game, as well as squashing over 3,000 bugs.
“Two years ago we were one of the first 10 games to be greenlit by the community on Steam – that was an important event for the company and the game,” says Martin Pollas. “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.”
