Kickstarter game of the week: Hell Let Loose

We’re starting a brand new series! We’ll be highlighting the best and brightest games on Kickstarter from new and old developers. Today’s game is “Hello Let Loose”, a realistic multiplayer World War Two FPS game.

 

Hell Let Loose is built in the Unreal Engine for Windows PC’s and will be sold through Steam once the game is finished next year. According to the Kickstarter campaign “this is a simulation of war…. not an arcade arena shooter”.

This realistic multiplayer game has matches with up to 100 players at once. So it’s more of a large-scale game than other similar games. As expected from a war simulation game is does feature infantry, tanks, artillery and a constantly moving frontline for players to fight over.

However, this is also a resource-based game which adds a whole new level of strategy to the gameplay. Players need to work together to make sure that everyone has the supplies they need. As a result, not everyone will be fighting on the frontline constantly. Some players will need to act as a delivery driver to move supply crates around the map to ensure their team has everything they need. While this might not be a very ‘active’ fighting role, it’s clear that this will be a dangerous job. In addition to this, some players will be Engineers who can adjust roads to build machine gun nests or add layers of sandbags for a Pak 40 anti-tank gun. Even the roads will be treacherous then.

There will be many combat roles to select from which all have unique roles. We can expect each class to feel and play differently in order to fill different roles on the battlefield.

As expected from a WWII game, there will be Nazi imagery features. The development team don’t intend to censor the game and aim to capture the “horror of war” through plenty of gore from bullets and dismemberment. There will be anti-cheat systems in place to ensure the game is fair for all players.

 

Hell Let Loose has now reached its Kickstarter goals however, there are still 24 days left for the campaign so it will most likely reach a couple of its stretch goals. If you’re interested in this title then you can check out the campaign here.
