World War II Multiplayer FPS Hell Let Loose Announced

Team 17, the indie publisher behind games like Overcooked and Yooka-Laylee, has revealed a new multiplayer first-person shooter set in the well-tilled grounds of World War II. Hell Let Loose intends to differ itself, however, by being a 50 vs. 50 multiplayer game with an emphasis on capturing territory.

You can check out the reveal trailer for the game below.

"Featuring sweeping maps modeled 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," Team 17 writes on the game's store page. "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."

How well that all works out in practice remains to be seen, but it is interesting seeing Team 17 branch out a bit in the kind and scale of the games they publish.

Hell Let Loose is scheduled to go into early access on PC in 2019.
