Name Plate Occlusion
Again we have been very busy this week with works on Update 11, we are steadily moving closer and closer towards our goals, and while we still have things to complete, all departments are working full steam ahead. We’re eager to unveil the curtain on some of the larger changes coming as they reach their polishing stages.
We are also very excited about the launch of Hell Let Loose on NextGen consoles which took place on the 5th. We have been very humbled by the results we have seen with such awesome community feedback. To stay up to date on all things console make sure to follow us on our socials and jump into the Discord.
Today's mention on the development front focuses on ‘Nameplate Occlusion’. ‘Nameplate Occlusion’ is when a name plate is hidden by an obstacle. Think of deploying out into the field at the start of a round and seeing all the names and icons of other players filling your screen as you roll out.
We are implementing an option that will allow players to only see the nameplates of players in their direct field of view. So if a friendly player is behind a building, fence or other similar object their name plate will be hidden to you if ‘Nameplate Occlusion’ has been selected in the game options.
As some more similar items to this enter the polishing stage in the coming weeks we will do our best to showcase the results here via our ‘Sneak Peek Of The Week”.

We have been posting lately some great works by our character, environment and vehicle artists on upcoming items for Hell Let Loose. As these are a snapshot of 'some' of the items running through our pipeline we cannot confirm dates, how and when all of these will be implemented in the future.
We think it important to share with the community a small snapshot of some of the behind the scenes workings various departments are doing. As you all may appreciate,
As work progresses on updates for the game, content specialists are often in the spotlight showing off some of these amazing items they are creating for the Hell Let Loose theatres both existing and upcoming. Check out the latest uniform from our character artists below.
