Hell Let Loose crossplay: how to play with friends cross-platform

Here's the latest news on Hell Let Loose crossplay between consoles and PC, as well as cross-progression details.

Hell Let Loose offers a classic WW2 shooter experience that immerses you in its large-scale battles. However, with such large matches, Hell Let Loose crossplay and how works between PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC is important to understand if you’re looking to find a match – especially nowadays.

The 50 v 50 multiplayer shooter has a strong player base on PC that loves the game and console players have shown a similar love for what Black Matter has created since it launched on PlayStation and Xbox. With tons of oddly beautiful and incredibly sprawling battlefields, Hell Let Loose has a lot for players to get stuck into no matter what platform they are on.

When it comes to Hell Let Loose cross-play though, things are pretty tricky. The feature isn’t available across all platforms, so if you’re looking to play with friends on a specific platform, you might be out of luck.

Does Hell Let Loose have crossplay?

Hell Let Loose has crossplay between PS5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles. However, those on PC won’t be able to play with their friends if they are on consoles.

In a statement on Twitter, the developer said that it will keep the PC community separate from the console one. It isn’t clear why developer Black Matter decided to do this. However, it is likely this comes down to the advantages keyboard and mouse players have over those playing with consoles. Likewise, with Hell Let Loose being a more hardcore shooter compared to more typically console-aligned shooters, the PC crowd generally take it much more seriously and makes greater use of in-game communication.

You can turn crossplay on or off by going into the settings menu on console and tweaking the option in the gameplay tab. Be warned though, disabling crossplay will increase your queue times due to the lower player population.

Does Hell Let Loose have cross-progression?

Hell Let Loose doesn’t have cross-progression. The team has said it will keep the PC and console ecosystems completely separate, so you won’t be able to transfer your progress between the platforms you play on.

Well, that’s the unfortunate news about how Hell Let Loose crossplay and cross-progression are implemented. Though it’s not as widely popular as its competition, Hell Let Loose is one of the best FPS games if you’re looking for something a bit more tactical and intense.
