Developer Briefing #15 - Map Overview Update!

Hey everyone,

Welcome to Developer Briefing #15. This week we’re giving you the first look at our updated map overviews that we’re in the process of implementing into the game!

If you missed the previous Developer Briefing, where the Game Director for Hell Let Loose, Max, stopped by to share some feedback on our recent closed test weekend, you can read all about it here.


Map Overview Update

Recently, the team have found themselves in a position to spend some time improving the presentation and authentic feel of the map overview that our players use as they fight on the frontline.

When approaching this update, we were keen to achieve the following goals:
  • Create a visually rich map.
  • Deeper tactical application during battle.
  • Easy to read.
  • Simple visual language that highlights key locations.
  • Terrain features identifiable through using the map.
  • It looks like a map that would be used from that era.
This then gives our players a tactical, authentic map that can be used for advanced planning on both attacking and defensive strategies by providing a true lay of the land.


Out with the old…


Aesthetic but lacking tactical use.


In with the new!


Mapping the path to victory!

As you can see, the example above now includes much more detail, including trenches, tank traps, bridges, roads, forestation and map contours (height).

We’ve not including the in-game sector, strongpoint and HQ overlays in the above image so that you can get a real good look at what you’ll be playing with.


‘Ordnance’ Survey

As we work towards getting this into player hands, we’ll be working on things such as icon legibility and tactical application. If you have any thoughts on how you’ll be using the new map overview design, let us know in the comments below!

Role Guide #7 - Support!

Welcome to Role Guide #7!

This week we’re looking at a role that enables your team's dream strategies to become a reality – the Support.

If you missed the previous guide where we looked at the Assault, you can catch up here.


The Support

As a Support, you are the fuel that feeds your team’s strategy. Working closely with your Officer, Engineer and Anti-tank roles, you will provide them with the means to deploy game changing spawn points, heavy weaponry and fortifications.

Key Duties

Placing Supplies



The pinnacle duty of the Support, placing supplies. As the only role that actively carries supplies in their loadout, your use of this valuable resource will be instrumental in executing your team’s strategy.

Once a supply crate is placed, certain deployables can be built in a set radius around it.

As mentioned in the introduction, your supplies can be used in a wide variety of ways with different roles:
  • Officer – Garrison (Teamwide spawn)
  • Anti-tank – Anti-tank Gun
  • Engineer – Fortifications (Sandbags, barbed wire etc)
Support players spawn with one supply crate in their inventory and once it’s placed, it can’t be moved. When committing to using your supplies make sure they’re in the best possible location for their purpose.


Support the attack


A Support soldier prepares for battle in the shade.

Once you’ve deposited your supplies, you should focus on joining the Rifleman, Assault and Automatic Rifleman roles at the front, taking on the enemy and pushing the objective.

Equipped with either an M1 Garand or the Karabiner 98k, as well as grenades, the Support can stand toe to toe with the Rifleman and put a dent in the enemy team’s plans.


American Support Loadout
  • M1 Garand
  • Mk2 Grenade
  • Bandages
  • Supplies

German Support Loadout
  • Karabiner 98k
  • M43 Stielhandgranate
  • Bandages
  • Supplies

Combat Tips

Supply and demand – Don’t just throw your supplies down at the first opportunity. Communicate with the roles that make use for them to ensure your supplies are placed in the most tactically viable location.

Eyes on the prize – Supplies can be destroyed by the opposing team! If you leave yours unguarded and the enemy find it, your supplies won’t be around for long. On the flip side, feel free to remove any enemy supply crates you encounter by moving up to them and following the on-screen button prompt.

Supports united – If your Commander decides to create a fortified location, or base, on the frontline, multiple Support roles will have to work together to ensure enough supplies are deployed to create the Commander’s plan. Talk to your Officer and use proximity chat to co-ordinate with your fellow Support players for maximum efficiency.

Support the attack – Your role may be called Support, but you’re equipped with a loadout that lets you hold your own on the frontline. Once your supplies are down, don’t shy away from combat. Show those other roles what Support players can do!

About This Game

You've never played World War 2 the way it was meant to be played... with lumbering tanks dominating the battlefield, crucial supply chains fuelling 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 front line, and crucial unit-focused gameplay that commands the tide of battle.

Featuring sweeping maps modelled on real reconnaissance images and satellite data, the entire battlefield is divided up into large capture sectors - allowing for emergent and constantly unique gameplay that pits two forces of fifty players in a fight to the death across fields, bridges, forests and towns on an ever-evolving front line. When a sector is captured, it will generate one of three resources for your team, creating a complex meta-game that will influence your team’s march to victory.



An Epic Theatre of War

Take to the battlefield in 50 vs 50 multiplayer across huge maps. Choose one of 14 playable roles within infantry, recon and armour unit types, each equipped with different weapons, vehicles and equipment. Play as an Officer, Scout, Machine Gunner, Medic, Engineer, Tank Commander and more to experience every aspect of World War II combat.



Unprecedented Realism

Placing you on real-scale iconic battlefields of World War II is at the heart of the Hell Let Loose experience. Historical vehicles, weapons, uniforms are intricately detailed, and the combat is as brutal and bloody as it was on the day. Combat takes place on huge, to-scale maps from real battle locations, recreated using archival aerial photography and satellite imagery in stunning detail using Unreal Engine 4.



Fight Together - Win Together

Hell Let Loose is not about kill to death ratios and unlocks - teamwork is central to gameplay. Communication is essential. Players work together beneath the leadership of officers and their commander to take strategic targets on the battlefield and dominate the opposition. Hell Let Loose is a game that demands teamwork and communication not only to win, but to survive.



Unique Meta game

Fight for victory by breaking through the enemy lines on a large, evolving battlefield. The unique sector capture metagame require teams to make continual large scale tactical decisions as to where to attack or defend. Manage resources and supplies to call in support, re-inforce strong-points or flank enemies. Strategy is key to success.

Key Features:

• Fight in epic 50 vs 50 multiplayer battles
• Select one of 14 unique roles
• Take control of the full spectrum of vehicles - from the fearsome Panther tank to the humble Jeep
• Bombard and wipe the enemy from the field by taking control of heavy weapons - such as anti-tank guns and artillery
• Build defenses on the battlefield to fortify your position
• Use teamwork to smash through the enemy front line and push through to victory
• Play the game as the Commander and lead your team to victory using different abilities as you orchestrate your forces via the tactical map
