As a surprise launch during last December’s PlayStation Experience, the long-awaited free-to-play title Let It Die brought addictive and bloody combat to PS4 users from the likes of executive director Goichi Suda (aka “Suda51”), with the title having reached a large milestone since its release.

In a press release from publisher GungHo Online Entertainment America, the company has announced that Let It Die has surpassed one million downloads across North America and Europe since it launched on PS4 on December 3rd, 2016, with the game being released during Sony’s keynote at PlayStation Experience 2016.

Alongside the reveal of the title’s big milestone, GungHo and developer Grasshopper Manufacture announced that players of the title will receive one free Death Metal from January 6-8th, 2017 in celebration of reaching one million downloads. All players have to do to receive the free in-game item is log in each day and receive it from the Reward Box.

Let It Die was originally unveiled at E3 2014 during Sony’s press conference as a PS4-exclusive, with the title featuring a free-to-play structure for users to try the game and progress for free. As players progress through its dungeons and levels, Death Metal and other items can be earned in-game (or purchased via micro-transactions) to revive or keep characters that get killed and avoid losing progression, due to its fairly high level of difficulty.

Let It Die is currently available now on PS4 in North America and Europe, while the title is set to launch for Japan on February 2nd, 2017.
