Let It Die is the newest game from Grasshopper Manufacture and GungHo Online Entertainment. It’s their take on the action survival genre and it’s out today on PlayStation 4. The game’s release was also followed by a trailer that was shown on stage during the PlayStation Experience 2016.
For those unfamiliar with the game, imagine if Dark Souls had a futuristic, punk aesthetic and you’re probably imaging a game that looks a lot like this:
You start Let It Die with nothing but your underwear and you must fight your way through the game collecting gear, weapons and mushrooms to help you stay alive.
Much like Dark Souls, you’ll die a lot in this game. However, unlike the punishing games created by From Software, Let It Die puts a spin on death. Every time you die, your “death data” gets uploaded to every other player and you become an enemy in their game.
Let It Die seems like it’s going to be challenging, so much so that PlayStation created a quick guide upon the game’s release.
It’s not clear how the free-to-play mechanics will work, or how necessary they will be, but the game is available now on PlayStation 4 and has Remote Play support on the PS Vita, so let’s all hop in together.
