PlayStation 4 exclusive Let It Die will be a free-to-play survival action game with an asynchronous online component, according to a press release from publisher GungHo Online Entertainment.
Let It Die was revealed during Sony’s E3 2014 press conference with a bizarre trailer befitting the latest game from the mind of Goichi Suda (Suda 51), but we weren’t really told what it was at the time.
Details are still sparse, but we now know that the enemies in the game will use other players’ data (which accounts for the asynchronous online part), and that you’ll be able take their weapons and clothes to customize your character. At this point, we still don’t know how Let It Die will monetize.
It will be the first game from Suda 51 and developer Grasshopper Manufacture since the studio was acquired by GungHo Online Entertainment (best known for its hugely successful free-to-play mobile game Puzzle & Dragons) and the first PS4 game for both companies. It had a vastly different visual style at the time, but we actually first saw the game at Tokyo Game Show last year, when it was known as Lily Bergamo.
Let It Die is set to release in 2015.
Sony said that it’s committed to making PS4 the best home for free-to-play games during its E3 2014 press conference. Catch up with all the news from that event here.
