Played about 100 hours on PC. Getting a PS5 this week and honestly curious about trying this out on console. These types of games are really fun if people communicate.. hope that’s the case on PS5

ID: hfgdnxl

People were communicating on the beta when I played which is a good sign. With this being a PS+ release hopefully it will be pretty active for a while at least.

Can I start downloading it now if I made an AUS account?

Sure as long as you have an AUS PS+ subscription.

Yup just figured that out now lol

Yes I would imagine you could

I recall here that there is an Eastern Front update, is that part of the PS5 as well? I'm all in if that's the case. All I want is a realistic WW2 shooter on the Eastern Front

ID: hfdzaee

Coming before Christmas

ID: hfe19d8

Now that is great to hear, that's when I will be playing. If we could get the start of Barbarossa to Moscow to Stalingrad to Kursk to Bargration, that will be the best WW2 experience one could ask for. I'm daydreaming here, just excited is all.

There’s an extensive day 1 patch with tons of fixes and according to some Xbox players, the aiming is much better.

Will this game scratch my Socom2 itch? I know it’s FPS but I meant more of the teamwork angle

ID: hfg3ch7

No but Insurgency Sandstorm will. HLL is much slower paced and larger scale.

Insurgency sandstorm does scratch the SOCOM itch!! Well worth the $40

Hopefully it feels better than the beta

It was an insta-delete for me after an hour of play

Can see why it would appeal to some, just not for me.

Edit: just booted it up. It still runs terribly. Hurts my eyes. It runs worse than Predator: Hunting grounds which I didn’t think could be beat for a “PS5” PS Plus game. Don’t care if the graphics themselves aren’t amazing, but if there’s ridiculous pop in and extreme screen tear, that’s a no-go from me. Very disappointed.

ID: hfdb8ge

The aiming feels significantly better and performance is way smoother which is great. I played a little bit (I’m in Australia) and was similar to you, the aiming felt simply awful in the beta to me. I still have literally no idea what I’m doing in the game though lmao

ID: hfdbb3q

That’s good to hear

ID: hfer3z0

How was the player count? I'm in NZ and would love to give it a go but if no one's playing in the region it probably isn't worth it.

ID: hfevkse

The resolution really killed me on the beta. Straining to make out enemies so far away amongst a mess of pixels. It brought on a problem I've only ever experienced before whilst playing Dynasty Warriors games, where one of my eyeballs goes red and feels like it's inflating or something. The frame rate was really hard to adjust to, too, after playing so much Rainbow Six Siege at 120fps.

Sucks, because it seems like the slow, methodical sort of FPS I've been waiting for on console forever.

ID: hfdprgb

It’s more fun with friends. Getting into a tank with 2 friends (commander, turret & driver) is some of the most fun I’ve had in game

ID: hfd3e4b

it was pretty annoying for me to keep spawning all the way on the back instead of next to my squadmates. Not sure if that was a problem for you too.

ID: hfd4a1v

What happens is that the squad leader is responsible to put down spawn points for your squad (called outposts, or OP). So if the leader dosen't knows what he is doing everyone will have a bad time.

ID: hfd5ree

I think you may be misunderstanding the game mechanics. The squad leader should be placing spawn beacons (“outposts/OP”) that allows you to spawn on the front. If the Squad lead isn’t placing those I would just join a new unit.

ID: hfd6a15

This game desperately needs crossplay and a tutorial. The game is riddled with people like you (no offense) who have no idea of the mechanics and treat it like bf. Coupled with the non existent communication, makes it annoying to play

ID: hfd3ycc

Yup that + clunky controls/aiming/movement + insane frame drops near any tank just lead to a poor experience for me.

But hey it’s free and my friends didn’t try the beta so they wanna give it another whirl.

ID: hfdfctt

Well that'll get better as people learn how to play the game, however I wish they'd add auto run to the game

12 : Anonymous2021/10/05 00:49 ID: hffan4u

I tried the beta and I have to say: the game is enjoyable if you have the right teammate. This is NOT COD or Battlefield.

Strategy and teamwork is essential in this game.

Fact that we're getting this with PS+ still baffles me. The Beta only recently closed? I know it's out on pc for a while but still...

ID: hfemakn

Sony has been in the habit of trying to get new games Day 1 for their PS5 / PS+ games.

In the last year this includes:

BugSnax, Worms Rumble, Marquette, Oddworld: Soulstorm, Operation Tango, and Hunters Arena Legends.

Also, Control: Ultimate Edition, Wreckfest & Innocence: A Plague’s Tale went on PS+ the same day as their PS5 upgrades / editions were released.

ID: hffcvtb

Destruction Allstars as well!

Indeed! It's all some niche games, makes it even better

Wreck fest is so far my favorite/most played ps+ title for PS5

I grew curious about this game ever since someone said, “Why play Vanguard when Hell Let Loose” exists.

Thing is I never even heard of this game until a couple of weeks ago and I’m wondering if there’s a reason for that.

ID: hfgdzs7

They are both WW2 shooters, but that's where the similarity ends. If you want COD this ain't the game.

It's big maps, one shot kills in most cases, difficult to spot enemies, vehicles. If you run around on your own like in COD you'll spend 15 mins not seeing anyone then get shot out of nowhere.

I have no interest in Vanguard, but Hell Let Loose isn't a replacement for it.

17 : Anonymous2021/10/04 18:55 ID: hfdvsqw

Does this game come with 120 fps?

ID: hfdz8tm

No, 60

ID: hfgq8r4

Knowing HLL performance from the PC version at least that’ll be more like 25-30 when you’re actually in game.

Honest question, what did anyone see in this game? I played it and it just seems like a poor multiplayer shooter. I feel like if I'm going to play a WW2 shooter I'd just play BFV. What's special about this game that people enjoy? I guess being free is the selling point here.

21 : Anonymous2021/10/04 18:19 ID: hfdpzvm

For me its actually what I always wish what BF would be like. No hopping, sliding, jumping and gunning, a few shots (usually one) and you are dead, that alone drastically change the gameplay (simillar to BF hardcore servers, which took EA ages to implement on BFV).

Also maps are huge and reallistic (no giant land marks and complex underground tunnels etc, more like flat and with less cover), which make more intersting possible approachs because you can flank and be sneaky, etc.

Sure it will never have the polish animations and graphics as BF, since it's made by a much smaller team, but the devs are always listening to players and have tons of upcoming contents and improvments.

22 : Anonymous2021/10/04 17:24 ID: hfdh0ll

The commander structure seems cool. Something dice phased out a while ago.

23 : Anonymous2021/10/04 18:15 ID: hfdpa5l

It’s a hardcore game with intense battles that something like BF5 can’t provide. The fact that you die with one bullet makes you play slower and careful, along with the respawns having more weight to them. If the console crowd adapts, there could finally be a space for these type of niche games, but it does require a lot learning. This isn’t something you pick up and master in 10 min.

The first time I played one of these games in PC I was instantly turned off, but once I got into a good battle and someone taught me the basics, I put 30 hours in one week.

24 : Anonymous2021/10/04 18:30 ID: hfdrsie

The fact that you die with one bullet makes you play slower and careful

Couldn't you just play BFV in hardcore mode if you wanted this?

It certainly helps being a WW2 history buff / Saving Private Ryan / Band of Brothers fan.

Since seeing Saving Private Ryan in theaters at a very young age I was hooked on WW2 history and video games. I still remember reading the PC Gamer review of CoD 1 over and over again. I also watched the 2004 E3 demo of the first Brothers in Arms probably 20 times. These were like Saving Private Ryan/Band of Brothers: The Game. And many years later, Hell Let Loose feels like an evolution of that:

As a WW2 buff and Battlefield fan, the HLL beta was so fun and thrilling. The ambience, the sound design, the ultra-realistic real world battlefields.

I love and still play BFV but it doesn't scratch the same itch HLL does. It's so arcadey in comparison and the maps don't really feel like WW2 to me. I love that HLL has so many maps set in Normandy like Carentan, Purple Heart Lane, Saint Mere Eglise, and of course Omaha and Utah Beach. And they're all recreated so accurately:
