Forget about battle royale shooters and forget what you know about WWII first person shooter video games because, this soon-to-be-released PC game is NOT yet another FPS set in the conflict of the 40s; it is a simulation of war, a realistic multiplayer WWII combined arms first person shooter where 100 players, 50 on each side, assuming the role of infantry, or as part of the crew of a tank or artillery detachment, fight to secure a victory in a 4 square kilometer map.

Hell Let Loose WWII FPS Video Game

The name of the game is Hell Let Loose, created by Australia’s Black Matter Studio. It was a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign from 2017. Here’s the official description:

“You’ve never played World War 2 the way it was meant to be played… with lumbering tanks dominating the battlefield, crucial supply chains fueling the frontlines, being 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 frontline, and crucial platoon-focused gameplay that commands the tide of battle. This is a simulation of war… not an arcade arena shooter. 

Developed for PC in Unreal Engine 4, on paper, Hell Let Loose is a realistic multiplayer World War Two combined arms first person shooter of open battles of up to 100 players with infantry, tanks, artillery and a shifting front line. At it’s core is a unique resource-based strategic meta-game that is easy to learn, but hard to master.”

Almost two years in the making, it will be hitting the Steam this Friday (June 7, 2019). You can now pre-order it for $29.99 which will include a Steam game code with access to the full game, plus you will also receive an exclusive pre-order helmet for both the German and US forces, namely German M42 Helmet Cover with Sniper Veil and US 505th 82nd Airborne helmet.
