Let it Die Surpasses Six Million Downloads

Let it Die

GungHo Online Entertainment, and Grasshopper Manufacture have announced Let it Die has achieved over six million downloads.

The free-to-play roguelike game first launched on PlayStation 4 in December, 2016, and later headed to Windows PC in 2018.

“We owe it entirely to our dedicated fanbase, our ‘senpais’, for getting behind LET IT DIE and making this milestone possible,” GungHo Online Entertainment President and CEO Kazuki Morishita stated. “The journey with them has been a pleasure as we have watched the game grow – just imagine the sheer amount of Death Data out there!”

To celebrate, an in-game event will be announced at a later date. The game also achieved five million downloads back in July 2019.

You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below:

In the year 2026 AD, a large tectonic disturbance caused mass destruction around the world.

In the midst of the destruction, South Western Tokyo split off into the ocean where the seismic activity caused a large spire to rise out of the ocean piercing the island creating a tower-like structure deemed holy by some.

Under the watchful eye of Uncle Death, madness has spread across the world…

Senpai! I was waiting for you!

My name is Uncle Death, and I have a feeling we’re going to get along just fine…

Your task is simple, get to the top of the tower.

Let’s reach for the top, Senpai!

Fight your way to the top in this chaotic and pulp survival action taking free-to-play to a whole new level. Begin your journey in your underwear and survive by any means necessary while taking advice from Uncle Death, a skateboarding reaper.

Rumor has it that a sacred treasure awaits at the top of the Tower of Barbs for those that survive the climb. Many dangers and mysteries remain hidden from the eyes of mankind and await those courageous enough to dare approach the tower.

Collect and Develop Unique Equipment

Players fight through a treacherous tower obtaining various types of weapons and armor while finding creatures and mushrooms to eat in order to stay alive.

Pry weapons and armor from the cold dead grasp of your fallen foes or craft even better gear. Eat mushrooms, frogs, and other odd creatures to keep your strength up or activate special abilities. Strategize when it’s best to fight or sneak away to fight another day.

You may lose your belongings upon death, but death doesn’t always have to be the end…

Hyper-Violent Rage Moves & Goretastic Kills

When hacking and slashing your foes just isn’t enough, you can use ultra violent Rage Moves or Goretastics to finish them off with style!

Asynchronous PvP

Upon death, a player’s “death data” is circulated among other player’s games where they will appear as formidable opponents called Haters.

Need some loot but don’t have the time to go exploring the tower yourself? Send one of your Fighters to an unsuspecting enemy, and they will invade their world as a Hunter. These potentially lethal foes can gather up items and resources from an enemy’s tower for a set period of time. If they are killed before that, they get sent home crying to their master.

Tetsuo brings the Tokyo Death Metro to a platform near you! Join a team, attack your opponents and raid their stash, but keep in mind they can return the favor!
