Hell Let Loose Gameplay

The main feature of Hell Let Loose is to involve players into stunning real-time battles on the fields of World War II. Vehicles, weapons and uniforms are reconstructed with the smallest details, and actions are brutal and bloody. The battles take place on large-scale maps recreating real locations based on archival aerial photographs and satellite images. The game also has a realistic combat system: physics of weapons, the reaction of characters to injuries, and cooperation between teammates of different classes fully immerses players into gameplay. Medics can revive wounded heroes, but if a tank or an artillery fire hit your character, there is no way to survive.

Battlefields in Hell let Loose are designed based on real Western Front locations. Impressive size game locations will take the player to such legendary places of historical battles as Normandy, Utah Beach, Hurtgen Forest and many others. Multiplayer battles involve up to fifty players from each side. The main goal of the game is to capture more points than the opponent's team during the match, which are extremely long sometimes. The capture of a sector occurs when you have more troops in area than the enemy.

The first mode map is divided into five equal sectors. Each sector has a "target", i.e. a point you need to capture to capture a sector. The point in each game is selected randomly from the pre-selected options. Initially, each team has two sectors, and the central one is neutral. To win, you need to either capture all sectors or have more zones under control than your opponent, when the match timer, started for an hour and a half, will reach zero. The points are captured in a standard way: the more soldiers you have, the faster you win. This mode is the most popular because of the balance because the parties initially in absolutely identical conditions.

In the second mode, one team has only one sector at the beginning, as well as only 30 minutes to capture an enemy, but for capturing each sector, the timer will be prolonged. The essence of this game mode is that one team should take all the zones, and the second should prevent them. This game mode is unique because the attacking team that has more motivation to attack quickly, which makes the battle more dynamic; it also has a strong negative side because it's strictly time-limited.

In Hell let Loose you can try one of the available roles: Commander, Officer, Infantryman, Rifleman, Assault Engineer, Crew / Tank Commander, Machine Gunner, Support, Medic, Anti-tanker, Engineer, sniper, corrector. The gameplay, appearance, weapons and special equipment of each role are significantly different from all others. For example, an engineer can build fortifications, a medic can resuscitate wounded comrades, and a tank driver can control a large combat vehicle. Such a variety of roles will allow the player to feel all the horrors of war and look at the combat from different angles.

Hell Let Loose does not require you to kill and avoid deaths, and the game does not force you to complete casual challenges to receive new items. The main feature of the game is teamwork, and you can't win without interaction. Players achieve strategic goals on the battlefield and strive to surpass the enemy under the guidance of officers and Commander. In Hell Let Loose, teamwork and well-established communication are necessary not only for victory but just for survival.
