Former Hitman developers have started a new studio and announced their first game: Heroes & Generals.
Heroes & Generals, a browser-based PC game, is the work of Reto-Moto. Reto-Moto was in fact the studio that transformed into IO Interactive. In 2004, after Eidos bought IO, the founding members left and reformed their old company.
The game is a persistent, online-focused World War 2 first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a soldier or a strategic officer.
Soldiers play the game as a FPS, with infantry and vehicular combat the order of the day. Strategic officers, however, play using the War Server, which displays the entire map. These players manage battlefield assets and decide where to push the attack.
"Heroes & Generals is a PC game that's fully playable in a browser, yet it offers state-of-the-art graphics and sound thanks to the proprietary Retox engine built by Reto-Moto," Reto-Moto said.
"We call H&G a 'Mass Participation Game', a term that not only describes the ease of access and massive-scale warfare, but also our goal to create a game that embraces open feedback from the community at every step - including our current Alpha stage."
