Hey everyone,

Welcome to Developer Briefing #16! This week we’re happy to share the news that the next Hell Let Loose closed beta is arriving in April. Details below:

Dates

Start date: April 5th
End date: April 8th

Participants
  • Existing players: Crowdfund backers who had access to the previous betas.
  • New players: Recruit tier backers will now be given access to closed betas (watch those inboxes!).
  • ?????: News on participation for those outside of the crowdfund community coming soon.

The April Beta Preview

For the first time in a closed beta, players will have access to two maps to fight on, Hurtgen Forest and Sainte-Marie-du-Mont.

That’s right, Sainte-Marie-du-Mont is back after its first outing in last years Alpha. Revamped, improved and ready for action, players will be fighting through fields, trenches, hedgerows and the town itself as they battle sector by sector to secure strongpoints in both rural and urban environments.

To prepare you for the impending battle, we’ve gathered some reconnaissance shots from the front:


Every building in Sainte-Marie-du-Mont can be entered, garrisoned and fought for.


The buildings aren’t just empty husks, they are lived in, damaged or even abandoned mid-breakfast. Each house interior tells a story.


Expect fierce fighting in chokepoints such as roads and alleyways.


Small farm buildings can be the perfect place for a Machine Gunner, or even a sneaky spawn point!


Gardens with short walls can be the perfect place for an ambush, if you’re brave enough.


The sweeping fields provide a stark contrast to the close quarter battles of the town.


This house may appear abandoned,but watch out for traps and soldiers laying low!
