From Press Release:
Wednesday, November 30th 2022 – Team17 has officially announced the forthcoming update for Hell Let Loose – titled Burning Snow – alongside a flurry of new content and activities for players of the multiplayer first person shooter. Launching December 6th, Burning Snow introduces the expansive snow-covered new map of Kharkov, as well as community requested items such as flamethrowers and Molotov cocktails; all-terrain vehicles including the Willys jeep and Kubelwagen; and the Soviet T-70 light tank. The update will be joined by two downloadable content packs, the seasonal Winter Warfare DLC, and a new cosmetic DLC bundle of helmets, Skull Bucket.
“We’re really excited to release Burning Snow,” said Maximilian Rea, Game Director and creator of Hell Let Loose. “Players have been asking for many of these features and now that we’ve accomplished parity between the platforms, everyone will get to experience the new items simultaneously.”
Describing the new map of Khakov, Rea continued: “This map combines a hybrid of the armour-oriented gameplay of Kursk, featuring wide open fields, hills and Stalingrad’s industrial gameplay; including railroads, bridges and Soviet urbanization complimented with deeper valleys, foliage and marshlands all set in a winter environment to make this map a unique experience. We feel players will relish the varieties of combat that this new frontline will offer.”
As part of the update, players will also have access to a cosmetic custom loadout feature which allows them to configure two pre-sets that can be switched depending on preference and gameplay, as well as optimizations for animations which will improve character fidelity.
A series of free weekends for Hell Let Loose are also planned, starting December 1st on Steam and then from December 8th on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. For a complete list of additions, improvements and optimizations please visit the Hell Let Loose developer briefing on Steam.
