Free to play action game hits a major milestone.
Suda51’s Grasshopper Manufacture’s Let It Die, the roguelike action game that they launched for the PS4 at the end of 2016 to great player reception and acclaim, has now apparently hit a major milestone- it has been downloaded 4 million times since its release.
The game is, of course, a free to play title, which means that the number of downloads in and of itself isn’t a very representative stat; but with that said, 4 million downloads is impressive, no matter how you slice it. The previous major milestone the game hit was 3 million downloads, which was back in May 2017, so it looks like the pace has sort of slowed down a bit since then.
If you haven’t already tried the game, feel free to download it and check it out for yourself- the monetization in the game is unintrusive, and the actual action gameplay is hugely satisfying, and should speak to a generation of gamers brought up on a diet of Dark Souls, and other games following in its vein.
