World War II strategic shooter, Hell Let Loose sets to open up a beta for next-gen consoles this 5th October. First launched on PC, this particular 50 vs 50 shooter will feature cross-play functionality between two console platforms.
The game will bring an all authentic and immersive world war experience of the Western Front to players. There will be 10 maps and 2 distinctive game modes – Offensive and Warfare, for players to choose from.
Pre-orders on Xbox Series X|S have started and will include 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.
Meanwhile, Playstation 5 owners will be invited to take part in an open beta for the game that runs between 16th and 20th September. PS5 owners will have opportunities to play the Hurtgen Forest Map in Warfare mode, which sees each side begin the battle occupying half of the map.
Once the beta is over and launch date comes, players who bought the game will have access to Offensive mode where 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, from the windswept sands of Utah and Omaha beaches to the brutal house-to-house, street-to-street urban fighting across Carentan.
