Following the critically-acclaimed launch of Assassin’s Creed Revelations featuring his powerful soundtrack, BAFTA-winning composer Jesper Kyd has announced a partnership with Reto-Moto to provide key music for Heroes & Generals, the studio’s highly-anticipated combined online FPS and Strategy game. Playing to the themes of a realistic World War II setting, Jesper Kyd crafts a rich musical tapestry to reflect the ongoing battle for European domination in the online war being waged in Heroes & Generals. Working with longtime collaborators and countrymen at Reto-Moto, Jesper Kyd lends his musical expertise to the team of proven veterans.

In Heroes & Generals, players will help to turn the tide of a massive online war being fought by thousands of other real players, either in the role of a soldier engaged in blistering first-person shooter combat, or as a strategic officer influencing the grand scheme of the campaign on a tactical war map. Heroes & Generals, now in Alpha testing, aims to deliver this combined one-two punch in a thrilling multiplayer online battle across realistic WWII environments, all playable from within a browser thanks to a Reto-Moto’s own potent 3D engine, called "Retox".

Jesper Kyd brings a lifetime of game and film soundtrack experience to the Heroes & Generals score, renowned for his incomparable blending of atmospheric acoustic instrumentation and scintillating electronic melodies. Kyd has received multiple honors for his previous soundtrack works, acknowledged by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, the International Film Music Critics Association, and winning Best Original Music awards at top game industry destinations like G4TV, GameSpot.com, and IGN.com.

Currently in production at Denmark-based Reto-Moto, Heroes & Generals is a AAA PC game that’s fully playable in a browser, yet offers state-of-the-art graphics and sound thanks to the proprietary Retox engine. It delivers a true first-person shooter experience with intense infantry and vehicle combat, customizable characters with progressive ranks, and diverse battlegrounds. As the shooter battles are fought, resources and global strategies are managed by strategic officers on a tactical overview map linked to the game’s innovative War Server. All gamers are encouraged to help evolve and influence H&G’s development by signing up for an alpha-key at the www.heroesandgenerals.com community site.
