Greetings to all of our dedicated Let It Die fans. I am super excited to announce that Deathverse: Let It Die is launching on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 Fall 2022!
Since our announcement on PlayStation’s State of Play last year, we received lots of great comments from our community. On May 28 and June 5, we also had an open beta test called Limited-Time Open Beta: Destroy the Server! Players from all over the world participated, and the test ended with great success thanks to all of you.
Our game was originally announced for Spring 2022, but due to the results from the open beta, the game’s release was postponed.
Now, our team here at Supertrick Games is working hard to make this game the best it can be. We are also incorporating the feedback from the open beta survey, so we hope everyone will look forward to the game’s launch.
What is Deathverse: Let It Die?
The game is set after the events of our previous game, Let It Die, where players fight for stardom in the survival TV reality show, “Death Jamboree”. The show takes place in a virtual world known as Deathverse, which was created by the Yotsuyama Group as a destination for people’s souls.
Upon participating in Death Jamboree, all contestants will be outfitted with a special “Wilson” unit, a robotic device that assists you in combat. Wilsons can transform into either a weapon or shield to assist players in combat and is considered a must-have item by well-to-do consumers everywhere.

Dev team discusses outlandish weaponry
If you participated in our open beta, players may remember the five weapons that could be used in the matches.
The game’s Director, Shin Hideyuki and the Art team provided some exclusive details behind the game design and artwork about each weapon.
“The design of the basic weapons in Deathverse does not just function to cut or punch opponents but adds a layer of horror as a torture device. All the weapons have a common design, where they have a tank (the shiny blue part) that contains a substance called ‘SPLithium’.”
“We designed this weapon with the standard movement and action of Deathverse in mind. This weapon can be held with one hand, has variations in speed for certain actions, and is incredibly well-balanced in its ability to go on offense and defense. Its normal attacks are of a 3-hit combo, and players can activate its special attack to destroy opponents’ shields and leave them defenseless for the kill.”
