Grasshopper Manufacture’s free-to-play action game, Let it Die, will be released on Steam next week.
GungHo Online Entertainment has announced that free-to-play, hack-and-slash video game, Let it Die, will come to PC via Steam on Wednesday September 26, 2018.
Let it Die was first released on Playstation 4 in 2016, where it received a somewhat muted critical response. Nevertheless, the game has been downloaded over four million times, and it has certainly found a community of fans who appreciate its over-the-top action.
Set in 2026, Let it Die takes place in a world ruined by mass tectonic disturbances. Players have to slaughter their way to the top of the Tower of Barbs – a large spire that has risen out of the Pacific ocean – crafting weapons and armour along the way.
One of the game’s more interesting aspects is its asynchronous multiplayer. With each death, player data returns to the game in the form of a ‘Hater’, an enemy that will appear in other players’ games.
The game is also notable for a remarkable voice cast that includes Jukka Hilden, Daveigh Chase, Traci Lords, Mark Hamill, and the late Verne Troyer.
The PC version of Let it Die will feature all of its post-release content, and will continue to be updated alongside the PlayStation 4 version.
