The E3 trailer from GungHo Online Entertainment and CEO of Grasshopper Manufacture Inc., Goichi Suda (yes, SUDA51), leaves more questions than explanations. Fans of what was supposed to be Lily Bergamo are absolutely heartbroken right now, I’m sure. However, Let it Die looks like it will be a grueling and bitter survival action game. Kazuki Morishita, CEO of GOE said, “SUDA51 and Grasshopper Manufacture have built a strong reputation delivering action games with a distinct visual and narrative flair. With the creative input from GungHo Online Entertainment, LET IT DIE promises to deliver an intense survival action-focused experience for players.”
- “POW! Right in the kisser!”
While few details have emerged, Let it Die has been explained to have a unique death system that is integral to the experience and promises to start players out with absolutely nothing, forcing you to become aggressive right from the start. The idea is that by having to defeat other players in order to gain supplies, it will create a kill-or-be-killed environment that will eliminate the trick of friendliness leading into betrayal.
Again, while the death system hasn’t been fully explained yet, when a player dies they become an enemy in other players’ worlds, perhaps making death an advantage depending on the situation. While the trailer is live-action, the screenshots seem to give the game a feeling of high definition cel-shading, which could be interesting all to itself. The world looks gritty and hard, without places to relax. The background story will be interesting for sure.
Flamethrower in one hand, cleaver in the other. Gee, I wonder what this game will be rated!
