Sorry, no Hell Let Loose review yet.
"All players need to read this tbh"
We've covered Hell Let Loose's Xbox Game Pass release a couple of times on Pure Xbox this week, and we've mentioned how much of a challenging FPS it can prove, especially compared to the likes of Battlefield and Call of Duty. In fact, it's so chall

After we didn't get anything this week
You may have noticed that we haven't received any Xbox Free Play Days titles for the next few days, and that's probably because they're usually announced on a Thursday - which happened to coincide with Thanksgiving this week. Nevertheless, we already have a confirmation for next week's Xbox Free Play Days...

"If I’m shooting from the hip, I would say no"
World War 2 shooter Hell Let Loose has proved popular ever since its 10-hour free trial dropped on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S last week, but unfortunately it looks like Xbox One players will be missing out entirely. In an interview with
"This game is incredible"
World War 2 shooter Hell Let Loose was given a 10-hour free trial on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S last week, and with players diving into it over the weekend, it seems the feedback has been largely positive thus far. Over on the official Hell Let Loose Reddit, reports have been coming in from new fans who have expressed...
Join the ever-expanding experience of Hell Let Loose - a hardcore World War Two first person shooter with epic battles of 100 players with infantry, tanks, artillery, a dynamically shifting front line and a unique resource based RTS-inspired meta-game.
Fight in the most iconic battles of the Western Front, including Carentan, Omaha Beach and Foy and more. This is combat at a whole new scale.... with lumbering tanks dominating the battlefield, crucial supply chains fuelling the frontlines, you are 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 more than 9 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.
Dropping you in more than 9 iconic battlefields of World War II - such as Omaha Beach, Carentan and Foy 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 - 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 requires teams to make continual large scale tactical decisions as to where to attack or defend. Manage resources and supplies to call in support, bombing runs, new vehicles, strafing runs and to reinforce strong-points or flank enemies. Strategy is key to success.
• Fight in epic 50 vs 50 multiplayer battles.
• Two distinct game modes - Offensive and Warfare
• 9 maps with more added frequently - land at Omaha Beach, fight through Carentan and into the frozen forests of Foy before climbing Hill 400.
• Never fight the same battle twice - 99 capture point variations per map, means thousands of potential battles.

• Bombard and wipe the enemy from the field by taking control of heavy weapons - such as anti-tank guns and artillery.
