Grasshopper Manufacturer’s third-person, hack-and-slash, gory reality TV-style action game called Let It Die has managed to surpass more than 6 million downloads worldwide after releasing exclusively on the PlayStation 4 way back in December of 2016, and later on in September of 2018 on Steam for PC.
To be honest those aren’t the most impressive numbers for a free-to-play game given that many other titles within the genre usually boast an average of 10 million downloads or more, especially if they want to be considered successful with a long tail-end.
Anyway, in the press release Kazuki Morishita, the president and CEO of GungHo Online Entertainment – the publisher behind Grasshopper’s title – mentioned…
“We owe it entirely to our dedicated fanbase, our ‘senpais’, for getting behind LET IT DIE and making this milestone possible. 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!”
The milestone is being celebrated with a special in-game event both on PS4 and on PC as part of the season 10 finale, where a team deathmatch tournament is taking place between February 26th and March 29th.
The game is sustained through premium purchase packs that range from $0.99 up to $50.
The good part about Let It Die is that it retains a lot of the fan-service that gamers expect from Grasshopper Manufacture, and the women look hot, which is a really important factor in whether or not a game is worth playing these days.
As for the actual gameplay? It’s just as the trailer depicts: a hack-and-slash, scavenge and survive game where your objective is to battle, collect, customize, and win against your opponents while scouring through dystopian environments.
