Team17 and Black Matter have today announced that online strategic first-person shooter, Hell Let Loose, will launch on Steam for PC on 27th July, with a release on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S to follow later in 2021. Set during World War II, in addition to the nine key Western Front battles available right now in Early Access (including the D-Day beach landings at Utah and Omaha, Carentan, and Foy), Hell Let Loose’s release onto PC next month will introduce Russian forces and two new large urban maps set in the Eastern Front: Kursk and Stalingrad.
Hell Let Loose delivers an authentic reenactment of the large-scale chaos of war, where individuals are cogs working together to turn the tide of battle. As the fight unfolds, the two sides work to secure crucial supply chains for resources, capture sectors across the map that influence the fight’s outcome, sweep across battlefields in armored tanks, or disable defenses with an artillery bombardment. Strategic gameplay and communication are critical to winning a battle; both sides are split into 10 squads of five players. Each squad is led by an officer who reports to a single commander who ultimately develops the path to victory or takes responsibility for the bloody defeat.
Hell Let Loose key features:
- Experience authentic, strategic gameplay: Fight in epic 50 vs 50 multiplayer battles across two distinct game modes, Offensive and Warfare;
