Let It Die is a Free to Play Survival Game That Uses Player Data to Populate Game World
Suda 51 is known for his weird yet highly creative games and the upcoming Let it Die seems to be no exception to the rule.
Announced during Sony’s E3 Press Conference, the Grasshopper Manufacture survival themed title will once again see Suda 51 serving as executive director rather than game director.
Let it Die is unique and something totally unexpected in many ways. First off the game is free to play and not as character or story driven as previous works of Suda.
Players will be able to customize and design their own character, equip various weapons and armor pieces with their own stats. Weapons will not only include melee but guns as well and combat will not be combo based. Instead it will feel more natural, instinctive and quick.
While not a multiplayer title, the game has a uniquely different style of community interaction.
Instead of fighting AI in game, players will be up against data from other players who play the game. The other player’s characters will be seen in the game world acting just like the player would if they were online.
The game will be a PS4 exclusive partly because of the developer’s current standing with Sony as well as the technical ability to “leverage player data” on PS4 according to the developers, which frankly to me makes no sense after all Microsoft has the Drivatar feature in Forza and that seems to work the same way.
Let it Die is set to be released in 2015 and just like any other Suda 51 game, is something to really look forward to.
