Let It Die third developer diary

Break into other players' bases and take their fighters hostage.

Let It Die

GungHo Online Entertainment has released the third video in its series of Let It Die developer diaries.

Here are the highlights of what’s discussed:

Game Flow

Let It Die is not the type of game where you focus on raising a single fighter and become attached. It’s more about planning the best strategies for getting through the tower and defeating other players by constantly strengthening and switching between numerous fighters based on your current situation. On top of that, you can break into other players’ bases and attack them. In such battles, players can even try to abduct one of their opponent’s fighters and hold them hostage.


If someone takes you out, you can get revenge in this free-for-all battle system. You build your fighters in single-player mode and pit them against others in multiplayer mode. With these two systems aligned, the game expands and takes on a new level of depth. If you die, you lose what you’ve gathered (since you last visited your based) then and there.

Cheating Death?

“With the right kind of insurance, you can even cheat death.”

Let It Die is a free-to-play survival action game developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and will launch for PlayStation 4 in 2016.
