Free-to-play hack-and-slasher Let It Die, originally a PS4 exclusive, comes to PC this fall / fall, developer Grasshopper Manufacture has announced.
You are tasked with climbing a tower filled with monsters and traps, starting without armor or weapons and gradually building a powerful character. The focus is combat combat, but you will also catch flamethrowers, crossbows and other projectile weapons.
It has permadeath, so when you go fast, you get back to the bottom of the tower without any of your equipment. However, your character will live on through "death data", which basically means your load will plunge into another player's game and they will meet your ghostly body as a powerful enemy. It's a nice idea and means you will find other players in the game ready to make a match.
You will be led by a skateboarding ugly reaper called the Uncle Death, which sounds brilliant. It's popular on PS4, with four million downloads from April this year (although the fact that it's free, probably these blades are blown up). You can find out more about it on its website.
