Hell Let Loose will be released on October 5th for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, Black Matter and Team17 have confirmed. In addition, it has been confirmed that Hell Let Loose will feature cross play between both consoles. The game will launch with ten maps that are set across the Western Front of the war, with players being able to take on 14 different roles. PS5 owners will have the bonus of being able to take part in an open beta which will be running between September 16th and September 20th.
The features of Hell Let Loose include:
- The brutality of the War in Europe: Hell Let Loose portrays the battles of the Western Front across two distinct modes, Offensive and Warfare.
- Authentic strategic gameplay: Each side of 50 players is broken down into armour, infantry, and recon, led by officers with a direct line to an overall player-commander directing the flow of the game.
- Unique metagame: Extended battles entrench participants in the tidal-like motion of the frontline that builds up Hell Let Loose’s real-time strategy inspired metagame.
- Playing a Part: Fourteen roles are available for players to experience, from engineers and snipers, commanders and tank crewmen, medics and support; all play a part in the war effort.
The PS5 open beta will feature the Hurtgen Forest map, with the Warfare mode being active. In this mode players will have to push forward to gain territory from the opposition, and keep going until they reach the enemy base. If that is not done within the time limit the side that has gained the most territory will be declared the victor. Hell Let Loose was released in the summer for PC, and expansion was launched on that platform that added the Eastern Front. It is likely that the content will eventually find its way to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, but there is no mention of when that is likely to be.
