Hey everyone,

Today’s brief is another big one, diving further into some of the additional improvements coming with Update 14. We’ll be sharing a final changelog with everyone on the 25th of May, where you’ll be able to find a complete list of changes and bug fixes!

The Hell Let Loose Experience
Offering unique gameplay through player-driven experiences, Hell Let Loose is often defined as a hardcore WWII first-person shooter, with a steeper learning curve and a strong emphasis on communication. Platoons are only successful when knowledge is shared and comms are open, and with Update 14, we have begun to facilitate better onboarding for both new and existing players alike.

Non-Verbal Communication Tools
In our roadmap reveal, we announced that non-verbal communication tools would be implemented to help support players who may not have access to a microphone or are able to use one.

Hey everyone,

Thank you for the response to our last dev brief - we’ve been exceptionally grateful and excited to be on the journey together! This week we’re pleased to announce Update 14 & The British forces are targeted for deployment on May 25th.

This will be another major update, bringing with it two brand new maps, the start of the British forces, along with new weapons & vehicles, new free & paid DLC items, our first iteration of video tutorials, and non-verbal communication tools - as well as general bug fixing.

Today, we’ll be taking a look at how the British forces are shaping up, along with the weapons and vehicles you can expect to see at the end of the month.

New Maps
Last time we revealed a North African campaign, El Alamein, would be available for players to jump into and experience a whole new biome, with open landscapes and plenty of verticality. In this dev brief, we’ll be taking a closer look at Driel, our second map ba... Read more

Hey everyone,

We wanted to start this week’s dev brief by saying a big thank you to those who’ve jumped into Update 13.5 and fed back on their experience so far. We’ve been busy going through your feedback on the different platforms and appreciate you sharing your reactions, both positive and negative.

Update 13.5 was the first of many planned health updates over the course of the year, aimed to improve quality of life and player experience. Hell Let Loose is a fantastic game on a massive scale, and as such, it’ll take time to fix all of the known issues and unfortunately create a few new ones along the way. However, we’re committed to eliminating all of the bugs and not introducing new ones as much as possible. As our team continues to get familiar with the project, we’ll fine-tune processes and procedures that will help us get patches and fixes out on a more regular basis.

During the reveal of the 2023 roadmap, we talked about transparency, and how we aim ... Read more

Hey everyone,

In our last developer briefing, we were excited to announce that Hell Let Loose is now fully supported with a new dedicated studio, allowing us to prioritize quality of life improvements ahead of launching new content.

Today we want to go into more detail surrounding the first health update, which will be released across all platforms early next month.

New Game Analytics
With a key focus on supporting the player experience, we’ve begun implementing in-game analytics. This provides crucial data to the development team, allowing them to better identify and understand player pain points in real-time, directly improving gameplay.

This addition will also help the team understand issues that are hard to reproduce, making bug fixing faster and more efficient, with an effort to get fixes to players quicker.

This first implementation of game analytics will provide insights into server health. Additional processes ... Read more

The start of 2023 brings change, excitement, and anticipation to the world of Hell Let Loose.

We’re closing out winter by bidding a fond farewell to the team over at Black Matter, as they prepare to move on to their next project.

We thank them for their dedication to bringing this incredible game to life and wish them all the very best in their new endeavor.

A Message From Max and the Black Matter Team:

As a team, we want to say a huge thank you for the incredible support this community has given us for the years that we’ve worked on Hell Let Loose. It’s been a fantastic journey and one that we can’t quit...

Hey everyone,

I'm sorry to hear the SA servers are continuing to suffer poor performance.
The issues the SA servers seem to be experiencing have already been raised to the team, with a hardware reset having already been carried out that has successfully prevented a lag hiccup during low server count, however, the team are currently still investigating performance.

Any further information you can provide would be extremely helpful.

This information could include:
Timestamps for crashes
Server player count upon performance issues arising

Thank you in advance!

We wanted to take the time to thank you all in this week’s dev brief, and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

The team are always grateful to see the Hell Let Loose community share their passion for the game, whether that’s through playing, creating artwork, or providing valuable feedback and suggestions that help to shape future updates.

With Update 13 ‘Burning Snow’ now live, and a hotfix to suit, we hope everyone has been able to enjoy jumping into Kharkov and trying out the fast and fiery new items.

The team will once again be taking a small break this festive season, and will be returning in the New Year to tackle the remaining known issues with Update 13, and prepare to take on the next 12 months with some very exciting plans that we’ll be able to tell you more about soon.

We hope that everyone will be able to also rest up and enjoy time with friends and family, both inside and outside of Hell Let Loose.

Happy Holidays... Read more

Hey everyone,

A hotfix for Update 13 'Burning Snow' is now live! We are very grateful to the community for continuing to submit feedback and share their experience with Update 13.

For a comprehensive list of changes for this hotfix, please read the changelog below.

Hotfix Changelog

Increased Flamethrower damage so that players will now be killed faster when in the direct line of fire. This aims to address feedback from the community surrounding players getting hit with a Flamethrower and having too much time to fire back and kill the wielder.

We have also increased ground fire for both Flamethrowers and Molotovs from 40 to 80 to address feedback around fire not resulting in kills as quickly as expected.

Bug Fixes
