WW2 first person shooter Hell Let Loose will be passing some major milestones in 2021. Having been in Steam Early Access since last year, Black Matter has announced that Hell Let Loose will reach 1.0 and leave Early Access on 27th July 2021. This will be followed by a PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S later in 2021.
Hell Let Loose will launch on 27th July with a major new content drop that adds the Eastern Front and Russian forces to the game. It’s just another of the major expansions and updates that the game has received.
It’s easy to see why Hell Let Loose has proven popular thanks to its hardcore approach to the WW2 shooter. All of the battlefields have been recreated from aerial photography for authenticity, the game’s huge maps supporting battles with 50 players on each side. Then there’s the persistent multiplayer campaigns that redraw the battle lines after each match.
Here’s some (soon to be outdated) blurb to describe the game:
Fight in the most iconic battles of the Western Front, including Carentan, Omaha Beach and Foy and more. This is combat at a whole new scale….with lumbering tanks dominating the battlefield, crucial supply chains fuelling the frontlines, you are a cog in the machine of colossal combined arms warfare. Hell Let Loose puts you in the chaos of war, complete with deep player-controlled vehicles, a dynamically evolving front line, and crucial unit-focused gameplay that commands the tide of battle.
Featuring more than 9 sweeping maps modelled on real reconnaissance images and satellite data, the entire battlefield is divided up into large capture sectors – allowing for emergent and constantly unique gameplay that pits two forces of fifty players in a fight to the death across fields, bridges, forests and towns on an ever-evolving front line. When a sector is captured, it will generate one of three resources for your team, creating a complex meta-game that will influence your team’s march to victory.
