Team 17 and Black Matter's critically acclaimed World War II shooter Hell Let Loose will be free to play on PC this weekend, starting... well, right now. Or in a few hours, anyway.
From today at 6pm (UK time) until 6pm on Monday, March 29, you'll be able to access the free trial of Hell Let loose via the game's Steam page for the low price of nothing. Better still, if you liked what you played, the game will be available for 25% off during the same period.
"Team17 and Black Matter are today kicking off a free weekend for 50v50 WW2 shooter Hell Let Loose, throwing players into the intensity of realistic large-scale warfare," Team17 confirmed via press release. "This free weekend celebrates the release of Update 9 earlier this week, introducing sweeping changes like armour and barbed wire reworks, new modes, the MG34 weapon, and much more."
In case this one flew under your radar, Hell Let Loose first hit Steam Early Access in 2019, where it developed a firmly loyal playerbase. Team 17 describes the title as a "hardcore World War II 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."
The FPS actually caused a stir among fans earlier this year when a financial report from Team17 confirmed that the 100-player multiplayer title will make its way to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S in 2021 with new and enhanced features.
"Continuing on from 2020, with one of our most ambitious pipelines delivered not just in the number of game launches and updates but technically as a remote work force, our fiscal 2021 pipeline is no less ambitious," the report reads. "In addition to new IP, there is a special mention for some of our existing portfolio titles such as Hell Let Loose which will arrive on Next Generation Consoles this year alongside Worms Rumble and Overcooked! All You Can Eat which will launch on additional existing platforms with full cross play."
No word yet on exactly how Hell Let Loose will take advantage of next-gen hardware, but this upcoming free weekend is a clear sign that the WWII shooter is gearing up for a big year.
