In the new trailer released today, Let It Die bills itself as “probably the greatest game ever made”. We are not sure of that, but you can check it out for yourself. In a surprise announcement during the PS Experience, the latest wacky romp from Suda51 can be downloaded right now.
Let It Die is a free-to-play game set in Tokyo after an earthquake has separated it from the rest of Japan. A giant tower rises in the middle of it, and players will try to ascend the tower. It uses asynchronous multiplayer. If you die, the game raises a zombie version of your character, called a “Hater”, to attack other players. If you kill one of these, you can collect some great loot to help you further along your journey up the The Tower of Barbs. As you can see from the trailer, your Uncle Death will be there to guide you, along with some really weird looking characters. Yep. It is a Suda51 game.
They did not scrimp on voice talent either. Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, Tracy Lords, and Verne Troyer all lend their skill to the game. We plan to check it out from curiosity alone. The PS4 has had some decent free-to-play games, and it could be the perfect thing to violently blow off some steam.
