Team17 and Black Matter have announced that 50 vs. 50 Second World War strategic squad shooter, Hell Let Loose, will launch onto PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S on 5th October. The game, which first launched on PC this summer, will feature cross-play functionality between the two console platforms and deploy an authentic and immersive front-line experience of the Western Front across ten maps and two distinctive game modes: Offensive and Warfare.
Pre-orders for Hell Let Loose on Xbox Series X|S have opened while PlayStation 5 owners will be invited to take part in an open beta for the game that runs between 16th and 20th September.
Hell Let Loose on the PlayStation and Xbox Series
The PlayStation 5 open beta will provide a brutal taste of war. Both sides will fight for victory on the Hurtgen Forest map in Warfare mode. Players will begin the battle on opposite sides occupying half of the map. From there, they’ll have to push the opposition back and secure enemy territory. Players must then hold the most ground until the timer runs out.
At launch, Warfare will be joined by Offensive mode. In this mode, one side plays the role of attacker and the other acts as defender. While Hurtgen Forest will be joined by maps set across the Western Front. There are also the windswept sands of Utah and Omaha beaches and the brutal house-to-house, street-to-street urban fighting across Carentan.
Those who preorder Hell Let Loose on Xbox Series X|S will receive The Silver Vanguard cosmetic downloadable content. The Eastern Front maps of Stalingrad and Kursk, together with the Soviet forces, which are currently available to play in the PC version, will be introduced to the console versions as part of a free, post-launch update this winter.
