Is Hell Let Loose cross-platform? Current crossplay status
Hell Let Loose, the ultra-realistic WW2 shooter, has finally arrived on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5. Players want to know if the game is cross-platform, so here’s Hell Let Loose’s current crossplay status.
Hell Let Loose quickly gained a dedicated fanbase for its uber-realistic portrayal of the Second World War and intense, chaotic gameplay. It used to be PC exclusive but has now arrived on both Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5. Xbox users are even entitled to a 10-hour free trial.
Most modern games now have crossplay capabilities, so here’s how cross-platform play works in Hell Let Loose and if it features cross-progression.
Does Hell Let Loose have crossplay?
Hell Let Loose features crossplay between Xbox and PlayStation consoles only. PC players will be kept to their own servers and won’t be able to matchmake with console players.
It appears that it won’t be coming to the game either as the devs gave a very definitive “We’ll be keeping PC and console separate.” They didn’t provide an explanation, but it’s likely to do with mouse and keyboard and controller balance.
How to enable & disable crossplay on Hell Let Loose
When you boot up Hell Let Loose for the first time, the game will ask you whether you want to enable crossplay. From this screen, you can accept or decline Hell Let Loose cross-platform play.
You can always change your mind later from the menus. Here’s where to look:
- Launch Hell Let Loose
- From the menu, press Square (PlayStation) or X (Xbox) to open up Preferences
- Hover over ‘Crossplay Enabled’ and set it to either ‘Yes’ or ‘No’
We would recommend leaving crossplay on, though. It will improve matchmaking time, and there’s an even playing field across consoles, so you likely don’t need to worry about cheaters or too many mouse and keyboard players dominating.
Does Hell Let Loose have cross-progression?
Unfortunately, no, Hell Let Loose doesn’t feature cross-progression. With Hell Let Loose not featuring crossplay between PC and consoles, some players may want to swap over to play with their friends on other platforms, but Hell Let Loose cross-platform play currently isn’t possible.
Devs Black matter explained that it likely won’t arrive because “the plan is to keep console and PC as entirely separate ecosystems.”
