Hell Let Loose is set to release on consoles on Oct. 5, but is it cross-platform?
Hell Let Loose is a World War II-inspired multiplayer game which sees players dropped into a 50v50 battle. With a mix of first-person shooter action and tactical RTS-style mechanics, the dynamic flow of matches is designed to bring a new feel to the frontlines. With 14 playable roles to choose from, player tactics will be an integral part of these massive skirmishes.
The game had its first full release on PC back in June, 2021and is now set to arrive on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S on Oct. 5. With Hell Let Loose utilising such large battles, many have been wondering if the game supports cross-platform play.
Is Hell Let Loose Cross Platform?
Hell Let Loose will support cross-platform at launch, but for the time being this will only apply to console players. PC players won't be able to share matches with players on PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S, at least not yet. In a Twitter post from August, 2021 the developers stated that they'll be keeping PC separate from the console release. It's unclear if this is the definitive plan, or if cross-platform will be implemented for PC in the future. For now, though, PC players will have to sit tight.
Cross-platform being available for consoles at launch will be welcome news for many players. Not only will players be able to join matches with friends using other consoles, but it's a good indication that the player base will at least launch strong.
Hell Let Loose is set to launch on consoles on Oct. 5, 2021. PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to download the game for free as part of the October PS Plus lineup.
