Today, Sony held a streaming State of Play focused on upcoming PS4 and PS5 games. The event was kept to twenty minutes of third-party titles. Among the many announcements came info on Deathverse Let IT Die.
Deathverse Let IT Die is coming in Spring 2022. It is being developed by Supertrick games, a team of around 35 people from Japan. Deathverse Let IT Die does take place within the existing Let It Die universe, a PS4 exclusive that came out in 2016. Although it is currently unclear just how connected the two games are. Yet we do know that Deathverse takes place 100 years after the original Let It Die and it is a multiplayer take of the game.
From The Press Release:
Prepare your obituary – DEATHVERSE: LET IT DIE comes to PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 in 2022.
In the survival battle arena DEATHVERSE: LET IT DIE, you’ll compete against players and fight off hazardous in-game foes in PvPvE combat. Use state-of-the-art weaponry to dazzle crowds, and customize your own original character with upgrades you collect and unlock as you cheat death, outlive your competitors, and climb the rankings to become a star!
The grand stage is an uninhabited island covered in SPLithium, an indispensable energy source in the era of DEATHVERSE: LET IT DIE. It is rumored that SPLithium contamination created the UMA, dangerous, mutated creatures and plants who call this island home. If that wasn’t enough, half-way through each match, even deadlier enemies enter the fray, with nigh-invincible Hunters joining the clash to chase down fighters without mercy.
As a contestant in this glamorous gorefest, you’ll fight using a special robotic unit, known as a “Wilson,” that will give you all the tools you need to survive. These battle-ready bots offer a variety of deadly features:
- Transform into all kinds of weapons, like hammers, knives, katanas, and more to batter and break your competitors
- Deploy protective shields to stop attackers in their tracks
- Fire electric bullets to stun enemies
- Activate any number of skills that you can customize to suit your playstyle
- As you progress through the game, you can upgrade your Wilson and unlock even more ways to slay and increase your odds of survival
