The Strategic Multiplayer Campaign - ''The Campaign, as we call it, is the strategic part of Heroes & Generals. In the Campaign ‘Generals’ will control a number of Assault Teams (army units), fighting for either the US or the German faction, and move them around the campaign map in order to conquer cities, airfields, factories and other important strategic points. When two or more hostile Assault Teams attack each other, a mission is created in the mission list, and players from each side can join and play out that mission. The Assault Teams carries an amount of resources, which will be the ones available in the Action game, and all kills in the Action-game will be reflected in the Campaign. The ‘Generals’ can also add reinforcements to an ongoing battle, so your troops on the battlefield will get more resources.''
