'Deathverse: Let It Die' Limited-Time Open Beta Starts Next Week

by Rainier on May 18, 2022 @ 8:55 a.m. PDT

In the survival battle arena Deathverse: Let It Die, you’ll compete against players and fight off hazardous in-game foes in PvPvE combat.

Set hundreds of years after the events of Let It Die, Deathverse: Let It Die brings players into the world of smash-hit reality show ‘Death Jamboree.’ Hosted by the charismatic Bryan Zemeckis, with commentary from former Champion Queen B, the MCs’ personalities are just as colorful as the bloodstained stage. While it’s well known that Death Jamboree is produced by the enigmatic Yotsuyama Broadcasting Company, the show’s past is steeped in mystery and led by a cabal of shadowy figures. 

It’s time to master your favorite weapon, captivate fans with showstopping moves, and gain the admiration of a global audience to become a rising star. 

You will need guts to battle to the death in the world’s top survival reality TV show for a shot at fame and gory glory. It’ die for. 

Use state-of-the-art weaponry to dazzle crowds, and customize your own original character with upgrades you collect and unlock as you cheat death, outlive your competitors, and climb the rankings to become a star!

GungHo Online Entertainment and Supertrick Games will kick off an open beta for Deathverse: Let It Die on May 28 from 1-7 p.m. PDT and June 5 from 1-6 a.m. PDT.

PS4 and PS5 players can pre-download the game today from the PlayStation Store and test their survival skills in this Limited-Time Open Beta: Destroy the Server! The beta will be available in multiple languages and regions.

In Deathverse: Let It Die, players compete in a 16-player survival battle arena as a contestant in the world-renowned television program Death Jamboree. Flanked by your trusty robot companion, Wilson, you must fight off player-controlled and CPU enemies in PvPvE mayhem.

  • During the Limited-Time Open Beta, players learn the ropes in the game’s Tutorial, hone their skills in Training, and prove their strength against others in Ranked Matches online.
  • In this kill-or-be-killed combat, players face more than just each other. Bloodcurdling Cryptids roam the battlefield, and when the cutthroat Hunters enter the area, there are only two options: run or die.
  • Transform your Wilson into one of five different weapon types, including the Machete, Buzzsaw, and–Uncle Death’s favorite–the Katana. If you get tired of one weapon, swap to another killer playstyle.
  • The landscape of the arena changes between rounds, with multiple Battlefields to traverse. Take advantage of the terrain and catch foes by surprise from the high ground.
  • No one likes a battle that drags on. To keep rounds short, areas of the map become contaminated. Players that linger in these areas will lose health, making their attacks less deadly. With Hunters prowling the battlefield, staying in a contaminated area is a surefire way to seal your doom. 
  • Pick up items like Materials, Mushrooms, and Sub-skills to modify your abilities and boost your chances for survival. Items are dropped when you kill enemies or break boxes scattered across the field.
  • The best way to get ahead in this world is to kill the competition. Players that slaughter their foes in a flashy way, whether its fellow competitors or Cryptids, can grow their fanbase and earn Glory Points from the Death Jamboree audience. GP increases attack power, so we mean it when we say that fame saves lives! GP collectors can also pick up points from Killing Brands, which are dropped when a Hunter kills a competitor–but be careful, or you might be the next to die.
  • Like any respectable, bloodstained celebrity, develop your personal identity with a wide range of customization options. With tons of outfits, face paints, weapon and Wilson skins, and emotes, you can give yourself a murderous makeover. You can even deck out your Player Room, the area where you wait between matches. It’ll either be your green room or your grave…

To give the fans a dramatic final battle, the Showdown Zone opens toward the end of each match. Duke it out one-on-one to be the last competitor standing in this restricted area.

Welcome to the Jamboree
In 2026, society collapses following a seismic calamity known as “Earth’s Rage.” Scarred by the horrors they’ve faced, a fractured humanity fulfills their need for bloodshed with a deadly reality show: Death Jamboree. Anyone can compete to win fortune and favor, but remember: no one makes it to the top without getting their hands dirty. 

Tell Them What They’ve Won…
Everyone who participates in the Limited-Time Open Beta is a winner… at least when there are free bonuses involved. Jump into the beta to “destroy the server” and earn a TEST PILOT title, a “T” Pose Emote, and a Premium Uncle-D2 Decal. Additionally, those who’ve reached the fourth level of the Tower of Barbs in LET IT DIE will receive the coveted title of SENPAI.

The grand stage is an uninhabited island covered in SPLithium, an indispensable energy source in the era of Deathverse: Let It Die. It is rumored that SPLithium contamination created the UMA, dangerous, mutated creatures and plants who call this island home. If that wasn’t enough, half-way through each match, even deadlier enemies enter the fray, with nigh-invincible Hunters joining the clash to chase down fighters without mercy.

As a contestant in this glamorous gorefest, you’ll fight using a special robotic unit, known as a “Wilson,” that will give you all the tools you need to survive.

These battle-ready bots offer a variety of deadly features:

  • Transform into all kinds of weapons, like hammers, knives, katanas, and more to batter and break your competitors
  • Deploy protective shields to stop attackers in their tracks
  • Fire electric bullets to stun enemies
  • Activate any number of skills that you can customize to suit your playstyle
  • As you progress through the game, you can upgrade your Wilson and unlock even more ways to slay and increase your odds of survival 

Deathverse: Let It Die comes to PS4 and PS5 in 2022.
