New WWII MMO Announced – Heroes and Generals
A new MMO set during World War II has been announced from the same development studio that created the awesome Hitman game. Heroes and Generals is now in the Alpha stage and applications are being accepted for gamers who would like to participate.
Heroes and Generals will offer a persistent online world where success in a game will bring about changes on the strategic map. Playable as a First-Person Shooter (FPS) the game allows players to join small to mid-sized teams to seize various objectives which influence the game. Vehicles such as tanks and armored cars will be available, and work is ongoing to create damage models which reflect angles of penetration against armor. Players also have the option to game as Strategic Officers who direct offensives in the game, which are populated by players gaming it as an FPS.
