When Is Hell Let Loose Coming To PS5 And Xbox Series X|S?

Hell Let Loose escaped early access back in July, seeing a full release on PC after two years. Now, following a successful closed beta last month, developers Black Matter and publishers Team17 have announced it'll release for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S on October 5th.

Detailing this launch further, Black Matter confirmed plans for an open beta from September 16th-20th for their hardcore WW2 shooter, which offers 50v50 matches. However, much like before, that's only on PS5, so Xbox owners will have to wait.

Releasing a new trailer to accompany this announcement, Black Matter outlined what to expect in the beta too, confirming:

The PlayStation 5 open beta will provide a brutal taste of war, as both sides fight for victory on the Hurtgen Forest map in Warfare mode, which sees each side begin the battle occupying half of the map. From there, they’ll have to push the opposition back and secure enemy territory for themselves until they reach their base, or hold the most ground until the timer runs out. At launch, Warfare will be joined by Offensive mode where one side plays the role of attacker and the other acts as defender, while Hurtgen Forest will be joined by maps set across the Western Front, from the windswept sands of Utah and Omaha beaches to the brutal house-to-house, street-to-street urban fighting across Carentan.
