Heroes and Generals is a unique game in its own right. It combines several elements of other great games we have come to know and love. At the central core of the game, we have a strategic command mode where commanders can make decisions and changes to a constant running, persistent global war. Through this mode units can be mustered and moved, much like a traditional strategy board game, such as Axis & Allies or Risk. The decisions made here allow for players to join specific battles as varying roles, ranging from gun based, ground assault teams, to halftracks, tanks and air warfare.
