Let It Die Review by Its Gameplay
As we mentioned earlier, Let It Die is a free game with an RPG concept that can be played on your PS4. In general, many players have likened Let It Die to the Dark Souls series and the visual style itself has been likened to that of Suda 51, the director of the famous Killer 7, who is made up of a lot of violence yet stylish.
When you enter the game, you will be presented with a tutorial. The first tutorial will require you to choose an avatar for your own character on the train. From this scene, you will later encounter Uncle Death, the legendary character from Let It Die. He is a grim reaper with his trademark skateboard, sickle, and fake 3D glasses. This game will take you to the setting of 2026, where you will be shown about the city of Tokyo which is located separately from the island and there is a large and tall tower. The pinnacle of the tower is everyone’s wish, treasure.
Gameplay will start when you are placed on the ground floor of the tower with the character you previously selected. You will struggle to get to the top of the tower. There are a number of enemies that are really annoying, and you need to kill them so you can more easily access your victory. Each floor increase, you will find an elevator that will take you to a safe area. In this safe area, you can make this area a storage area, make purchases for equipment, make statistical upgrades, and get ready to play again.
Many gamers claim that the combat system is easier than Dark Souls, with an awkward battle but with a thick rhythm against one enemy. This allows you to win easier (if done for one enemy). However, you will come face to face with a lot of enemies, which you should best avoid.
There are three options that you can choose if you die in the game. These options are to switch to another character, pay to revive your character using killer coins and game currency, as well as revive your character where you died with Death Metal, which we don’t recommend if you want to play completely free, because it’s more easy to get if you buy with real money.

Let It Die Review by Its Development
At first, this game was known as Lily Bergamo with the main character being a female protagonist by the name Tae Loroi, set in 2026, and a mixed concept of Japanese and Western culture. In addition to games, initially the development team and publishers thought of displaying a companion application so that it could be played on smartphones.
However, then Lily Bergamo changed its name to Let It Die during the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2014. The initial concept to make this game an extreme action game was still being carried out. Goichi Suda, the game’s executive director, informed that if the player dies in the game, they will appear in other players’ games and will show a significant development from the previous Suda video games in creating a more creative philosophy.
Initially, Let It Die was planned to be released in 2015. However, on June 11, 2014 at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, finally the name change of Let It Die from Lily Bergamo was made. In addition, GungHo Online Entertainment also announced on 29 October 2015 that the release of let It Die would be released on 3 December 2016.
Because Let It Die takes many Japanese cultural concepts, there are 100 Japanese rock and metal artists who are invited to contribute to this game. This is very impressive and makes this game feel stand out, by its music.
