Reto-Moto, le développeur du FPS Heroes & Generals continue le support de son jeu sur la Seconde Guerre mondiale avec l'ajout récent de la mise à jour « Young », baptisée ainsi en l'hommage du brigadier général Gordon Russell Young (1891-1963).

Il s'agit d'une importante mise à jour apportant un nouveau mode de jeu (Confrontation) avec une nouvelle carte (dépôt), deux nouvelles armes (un pistolet-mitrailleur soviétique et une carabine américaine), un nouveau véhicule (SdKfz 2), du camouflage pour les véhicules.

Une vidéo de rpésentation ainsi que la (très longue) liste complète des changements se trouvent dans la suite de la nouvelle.

See blog post/Steam announcement for more details on underdog bonus
Changed how bonuses are added to XP / Ribbons / Credits and Warfunds, they are now based on the base value and then added together - f.ex. a 2% bonus and a 10% bonus on a value og 100 is now : 100 + 2 + 10 and not miltiplied in.
