Hell Let Loose for consoles offers a classic WW2 shooter experience for players after its time on PC. One of the key features for the console version of the game is the Hell Let Loose cross-play and how works between PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

The 50 v 50 multiplayer shooter has a strong playerbase on PC that loves the game and console players have shown a similar love for what Black Matter has created. With two distinct game modes and ten maps, 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 right now, so if you’re looking to play with friends on a specific platform, you might be out of luck. For more information about Hell Let Loose cross-play, read on and we’ll do our best to explain the differences between platforms and who you’ll be able to take to the battlefield with.

Does Hell Let Loose have cross-play?

Hell Let Loose will have cross-play 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


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.

Hell Let Loose is set to release on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S on October 5, 2021. It will also be a part of the PS Plus October 2021 free games.
