Labor of Love
Hell Let Loose WWII shooter is a labour of love by Black Matter, a small development team based in the UK, New Zealand, Russia and the United States and has been in development since 2016. The game completed a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2017 and, following a series of closed betas, launches into Steam Early Access today.
“I began Hell Let Loose as a tiny hobby project back in late 2014, when World War Two games were very much in drought. We wanted to create a game that mixed the intensity of frontline combat with the depth and strategy of more realistic team-oriented shooters. From there Hell Let Loose has gone on to become the sole focus and passion of our team of 10. Today is a big day for us and whether you’re a newcomer or one of the grizzled veterans who discovered us during our Kickstarter campaign in 2017, we’re really excited to continue this journey with you”Maximillian Rea, co-founder, Black Matter
