Let It Die is out today, and if you want to survive in a world where your biggest mistakes literally come back to haunt you, you might need a helping hand. Today’s blog will focus on the little tips and tricks that make the difference between life or death in Let It Die.

Let It Die: Out Today on PS4, Survival Guide

Context Matters (Stop Mashing Buttons)

The first time you get in a fight and start mashing buttons, you’ll probably realize you’ve made a huge mistake when your heart starts pounding so hard you need to take a breather. While that situation will likely end in a violently unpleasant death, there are other less obvious reasons to avoid mindlessly hammering away at your controller. Though Triangle and X are not direct attack buttons, they can lead to some of the most devastating and effective maneuvers a Fighter can perform.

If you manage to sneak up on an opponent undetected (by crouching with L3 and slowly approaching from behind) you can perform a powerful suplex. While this may not be news to fans who’ve seen our Let It Talk video series, you might not have noticed that once an enemy is prone, you can actually walk over to their body and press X again to perform a rather unsportsmanlike stomp attack.

Finally, if you run for long enough, you may notice a button prompt that allows you to perform a high-risk, hilarious drop kick. Use at your own peril and remember you’ve got more tricks up your sleeve.

During a typical round of fisticuffs with a Fighter character, you may notice your opponent getting a bit groggy. If you keep mashing away, you’ll miss the opportunity to perform the almighty Goretastic finishing move, which renders foes noticeably dead. Unlike your typical “Triangle + attack button” Rage moves, these don’t consume your Rage. With these techniques in mind, be sure to keep a cool head and watch for opportunities to overwhelm your enemies.

Grab Everything

Frogs, mushrooms, pants, barbed-wire baseball bats, and… cotton? There’s no denying it, when you’re climbing up the Tower of Barbs, you’re going to find a lot of weird stuff, and some of it may not seem useful. Rest assured, each item has its purpose, and each one can help keep you not dead just a little longer.

Keep an Eye on Your Gear

That old expression about things not lasting forever holds just as true in Let It Die. It’s important to watch durability as well as ammo because if you don’t, you’re going to have a bad time. Having your hammer shatter in the middle of a combo renders your follow-up attacks far less effective. Similarly, having your armor shatter at the beginning of an enemy’s combo means you’re about to take a whole lot more punishment.

If you can see you are about to enter a violent melee, it’s probably wise to switch to your freshest gear for maximum efficiency. And remember, gear crafted via the Chokufunsha Shop at your Waiting Room will always be more durable than gear looted from your fallen foes.

Understand When It’s Time to Leave

If you’ve been grabbing everything and keeping an eye on your gear (as recommended above), this final tip should come as a natural conclusion: when you find a new elevator, take it back to your Waiting Room to prevent losing most of the progress you’ve made since your last visit. When you return to your Waiting Room, your precious Kill Coins and SPLithium your Fighter gathered are sucked up into the Mingo head and deposited into their respective banks and tanks for safe keeping.

Kill Coins have various uses, and SPLithium is the only way you’ll be able to research and upgrade gear. You should also stop by the Chokufunsha shop to drop off any blueprints you’ve collected and start researching something if you haven’t already. We cannot emphasize how important crafting is to adding to a Fighter’s overall strength and survivability in the tower.

Let It Die, 04

You can also use the Mingo Head to actively (not automatically) distribute levels and boost specific parameters of your Fighter character, but keep in mind that each stat will eventually max out. When this happens, your current Fighter has reached its full potential and you should start keeping an eye out for a better one to show up for purchase at the Fighter Depot. Over time and progression through the tower, higher-grade fighters with higher level caps and base stats, along with a variety of specialties, will become available.

Finally, since you’ve only got so many slots to hold new stuff, you may want to drop off extra gear in your item storage locker. And with that, you’re ready to start your next romp through the tower. You can even pay some Kill Coins or use the VIP elevator to start from higher up in the Tower to minimize backtracking.

While returning to your base may throw off your groove, just keep in mind that dying means you lose everything you’ve accumulated on your current run. And with that heartwarming reassurance, it’s time to download Let It Die and start your climb to glory!

  • Sony seriously needs to work on their back end support for the store. None of these games are showing up on the PS Store. This stuff should go live the minute Layden says “This game out today”

    • Unfortunately, “today” does not equate to “right now. . .” Most think it’s coming out this evening, which is a bit silly if you ask me.

    • I don’t want to sound like a ****, but go back and watch the announcement said available today. Then when he was announcing the handful of games coming out he said “later today”

    • Antonio Cara

      We’re super excited too! We totally understand where you’re coming from.

    • Antonio Cara

      We’ll update everyone on our social media channels as soon as we see it live on our end!

    • The fact that Nintendo can unveil a game and say “it’s available right now” and it is, but Sony can’t even give a hard time when games will go live on their store is kind of sad.

      I love you, Sony, but PSN needs some work.

    • Antonio Cara

      Harder to reply to comments of comments, but the game should be available soon. Thanks for the excitement JDavis1186!

    • Because it’s only in the US shop.

  • The PlayStation Store always updates in the late afternoon.

    Also, if you were watching PSX, you may have noticed that about half the times they said it, instead of just the word “today” they used either “later today” or “tonight.”

    • Antonio Cara

    • Antonio Cara

  • How long will this be free?

  • Can’t wait to download it. I’ve been waiting for it since it’s announcement! Really hoping for a lot of content and fun times ahead. Thanks for the surprise release. I was hoping this month but it’s great it is today :)

      Thanks a bunch! It feels great to have it finally announced and on the way! Hope you really like it.

  • WolfyHopeless

    AGGGHHH So my PS4 finally went kaput last week and I’ve been waiting for this forever! I’ve been a HUGE fan of Suda 51 and this game will be THE FIRST thing I download when I finally pick up a new PS4

    • Antonio Cara
      Antonio Cara

      Glad to hear it! And might I add, that’s a fantastic way to break in a new PS4.

  • I very hyped to play this game o/

  • Still hoping for Lily Bergamo to happen someday…

    • Antonio Cara

      We totally understand. That concept/tease really resonated with some people. But we do hope you’ll give this a shot since a lot of the concepts and ideas that were going on back then sort of melded into LET IT DIE.

  • xxSolshido35xx

    super excited to play let it die. been wanting to play and stream this game for my viewers for a while. can’t wait to play it later today! excellent stuff guys! like for real you all have made my night! (^_^)

  • It seems you let Let it Die die. And it’s not available in all EU stores, only the UK one as far as I know.

    • Antonio Cara
      Antonio Cara

      Apologies for that – we have confirmed a couple of regions, but it seems to be staggered. Keep checking in.

  • Bummer that they tweeted it out and it’s not ready. Blah!

    • Antonio Cara
      Antonio Cara

      My sincerest apologies for the confusion caused by that! It’s available in some European territories at the moment, so we invite you to keep checking back.

  • VashOnHash24

    Any idea when it’ll be available in NA? Store keeps saying content is unavailable.

    • It’s out now on US PSN. You have to find it through the search function though.

    • Antonio Cara
      Antonio Cara

      WE ARE LIVE!!!! Thanks so much for all your patience!

    • Antonio Cara
      Antonio Cara

      As mentioned, you can find it via “Search.” Hopefully should show up by category soon. Thanks everyone!

  • ArminIran25

    Is Let it Die going to be available tonight Pacific Time or Eastern Time?

  • any news about this? i dont see it on the store also waiting marvel vs capcom 3 on ps4

    • Antonio Cara
      Antonio Cara

      Please try refreshing the store now! You should be able to find it via “Search.”

  • i can confirm that it is up now in US. Downloading now.

  • is there a end game to this game or do you just keep on playing?

    • Antonio Cara
      Antonio Cara

      Both answers are YES! There is definitely a goal/boss/ending to the mysterious story, but also more reasons to keep coming back for more! We will also be hosting in-game events to keep things interesting.

  • I guess i can just go **** myself, because the game ain’t avaliable to me.
    EU store, but i heard the EU people were getting it even earlier than NA so it should change little.

    Feels bad man :/

  • ravenrosekosser

    Do you need ps plus to play this?

    • Antonio Cara
      Antonio Cara

      PS Plus is NOT needed, but we are planning a special bonus for members. Please stay tuned while we put the finishing touches on our digital store!

  • ManjoumeThunder

    Will the phone companion app also be released soon? I’d be nice to have part of the experience on the go. That said I’m definitely playing this tomorrow!!

    • Antonio Cara
      Antonio Cara

      No news on that yet, but we hope you enjoy the game as soon as you get it!

  • Still not up in Finland :(

  • not in Ukraine too. Game looks very promising.

  • waited all night long and still not in our Austrian store :(

  • Still not out in sweden. When will it be available here ?

  • Still no “let it die”
    Few more hours and its 24 hour since the announcement

  • I’ve tried to get this game for 2 days and so far nothing. It’s 18:27 (GMT +1) in Central Europe, Sunday the 4th of December. PSN is worse than EA’s Origin service. It’s basically outdated and obsolete if it can’t provide access to one product. Not only that but it has time and again randomly rejected my credit card for purchases for no apparent reason yet other times works fine, messes up purchases that supposedly go through normally, has a foolish cap on downloading to the PS4 for games or updates and now this ridiculousness.

    At this rate I’d rather save up for a Scorpio than for a PS4 Pro and VR set like I was planning to do. Microsoft at least has a good service when it comes to their store and Xbox online services. Even Nintendo can provide access to a game when they say it’s available, right away. Pure disappointment after disappointment from Sony, PSN and the Playstation brand. Not even sure it’s worth getting Horizon: Zero Dawn anymore because it will probably have problems downloading updates or something similar. What a shame that the console is going downhill like this while Xbox gets better and better.

  • The game is down for me, i cant play it….

  • Is it gonna be live on PSN Asia region? I’m worried ’cause i really want to play this game…

  • Lizard-Kane

    still not out in Sweden……

  • DarkManolis

    We all live in Europe (i think), Portugal its not a 3rd world country…
    It’s sad when Playstation divides gamers like this, we all want to experience Let It Die.
    Include all European Countries pls, in my case i want Portugal included ASAP, my money (ps plus) is as good as any others!!!!

  • Trollinator1337

    Denmark, december 5th, 2:42 PM UTC+1, still not in playstation store. Anyone got any idea when it will be released/show up in the store?

    Really wanna try this game out :)

    • Trollinator1337

      Oh well just noticed the Twitter region list, and gotta say, im pretty dissapointed its not released in Denmark, why not just make it a region release like all countries in EU NA etc.?

      Was hyped and now its gone like a fart in the wind..

      atleast now i know not to refresh the shop all the time in hopes of it showing up..

  • Great game, I enjoyed spending my sunday afternoon playing this, very original and fun.

    However I do have a complaint. As I was crawling through the Tower’s 5th floor, loaded with loot, I tried to take the elevator back to the Waiting Room, but an error occured and had to stop the game. The game took this as a death, so I lost not only my loot but my character and all the progress I made.

    So now I have to spend another couple hours trying to level another character high enough so I can do it again.

    A very unfortunate underside to an otherwise really fun game.

  • Been waiting for this game for such a long time now, only to get dissapointed that its not even out in norway… :/

  • Great game with even better design. The trippy aesthetics and game within a game theme employed are refreshing and sincere. And its free. Cheers to the Let it die team. Do me a favor though, think about letting the player make the Uncle Death loading icon do kickflips and ollies. That would be pretty rad! Thanks!

  • Question, any PS4pro features? 4K support? Upgraded graphics , etc in the near future? Thanks loving the game

  • LukeKillinField

    Is there a problem for “Asia” store .. Thai store to be specific. The game is nowhere to be found in the store. I subscribed to Thai PS+ for a whole year and I also deserve that game too.

  • LukeKillinField

    Oh thanks .. I found the problem .. It’s the region problem. It’s still sucks doe .. -.-

  • Not out in the Netherlands as of yet. Any word on when it will be available here??

  • When is this going to be released in europe?

  • RetroKingRasta

    I have been waiting for this game for ages…..

    At work and checked the store….had to download straight away…..

    gonna have some good ish to play when I get home much needed after a long day at work :-)

    THE WAIT IS KILLING ME

  • Can’t find the game on the European playstation store as of this moment. I just found out about this game and I was excited to try it out. Shame that the playstation store isn’t showing it.

  • Already gave up on it, think I won´t download it even if it is released for the rest of us “WAITING”

  • Lizard-Kane

    Sony, where is the game? , no updates, nothing! Will this ever be available in Sweden? You can’t say it’s out in the Europe when whole Scandinavia is missing it, we payed exact as much for the console and ps plus, we want the same benifits as the rest of the world, why should I keep buying Sony if I only got some of the content because I live in Sweden?

    Some one really need to give us some information about this game now! So tired of “stay tuned” when rest of the world havin a blast and play the game and spoils everything about over the internet.

  • What is happening with this? Im waiting for this game for 11 DAYS , PORTUGAL IS NOT A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY , ITS JUST A GAME , PLAYING PLUS SO I CANT HAVE A FREE GAME? U AINT TAKING ANY OF MY MONEY BEFORE I GET THIS GAME
