GungHo Online Entertainment America and Grasshopper Manufacture announced yesterday that its free-to-play hack-and-slash survival action game, Let it Die, is bringing good tidings to players this holiday by making in-game items available for purchase in all regions on the PlayStation Store. The game is now digitally available only on PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe.
“We want to continue building on our rapidly increasing fan base for Let it Die, which has grown exponentially since launch, because as our player base grows, so does the game,” said Hideyuki Shin, Director, Grasshopper Manufacture. “We’ve not only opened the digital store to all players, but we also made the game available to additional territories in Europe.”
Let it Die is from the creative minds behind Lollipop Chainsaw and No More Heroes. Set in a post-apocalyptic Japan, players start with little more than their undergarments and must forage for powerful weapons and armor to do battle with the over-the-top ultra-violent future that waits.
Players in regions where the game is now available will be able to buy the monthly Express Pass, which grants players access to the special “Royal Elevator” free of charge, expansion of their bag size by 10 for all Fighters, and a free daily bonus decal that can have a number of beneficial effects, for $14.99. They can also buy various item packs containing helpful consumable items and blueprints found in the Tower of Barbs.
PlayStation Plus members who download the game can also receive the special Direct Hell Booster Pack containing Death Metals, Kill Coins, and a number of useful items that will help them climb the Tower of Barbs.
In keeping with the holiday spirit, Let it Die will also be hosting a “Bloody Holiday Fest” beginning on Christmas Eve, December 24. The event includes a free daily item giveaway lasting until January 3, and it increases the scope of the current PVP event which is available until January 28.
