Can you make it to the top of the Tower of Barbs?
Grasshopper Manufacture's first free to play game 'Let It Die' has been released on PS4 following a new trailer shown off during the PlayStation Experience keynote on Saturday. The game is a roguelike/action-RPG with combat mechanics heavily inspired by 'Dark Souls', and tasks players with climbing the Tower of Barbs, a mysterious, violent tower that supposedly holds a treasure at its highest floor. When players die, their corpse becomes an enemy that they will have to defeat in order to get them and any items they may have been holding back into their possession. You can catch the launch trailer for the game below:
While the game is free to play, the microtransactions are only used to purchase Death Metals, which help make things a little more convenient, such as speeding up item creation or allowing players to resurrect immediately upon death, and the game regularly hands out Death Metals for free, so it never feels like those playing for free are being shortchanged. While it's rough in places, I've had a good time with the hours I've put into it so far, and I'm looking forward to playing more of it.
