Team17 and Black Matter have announced that their WWII shooter, Hell Let Loose, is free to play until October 14th. In addition, the teams have released a brand new update for the game that adds a new map.
As the press release reads, the game is now primed for a hundred-player battle on Omaha beach in Normandy, France. Update 3 brings a brand-new map, based on a historically accurate recreation of the battlefield from 1944. Furthermore, it introduces as a new game mode, Offensive Mode.
On this new map, fifty players begin the match at sea in Higgins Boats. Players will be dropped off in waves as they assault the beach defended by players on land. The hundred-player battle takes place along the beach terrain, in extensive trench systems as well as on the village square and lush fields. As such, players will have to constantly change tactics and adapt to said environments.
Max Rea, Co-Founder, Black Matter, said:
“Update 3 is one of our biggest updates to Hell Let Loose with the much-requested Normandy beach landing map as well as the brand-new Offensive Mode, which will encourage a much more strategic playstyle. The game’s received a lot of positive feedback from players looking for a more authentic battlefield experience. Therefore, we’re very excited about the prospect of this update. Hell will be let loose, so come and join us!”
This update will also bring quality-of-life fixes in the form of some brand-new audio for several fan favourite weapons like the M1 Carbine, M1 Garand and the MG 42 and many more. Finally, another new map will be released at the end of October with several fixes and improvements.
