PlayStation has revealed GungHo Online Entertainment’s melee-based arena brawler Deathverse: Let It Die for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles.
Not many details were announced about the game, but what wasn’t said was shown on-screen during the trailer shown at the start of today’s State of Play showcase. It begins with someone who appears to be the host of the Deathverse competition, which is something aired on in-universe television.
In it, we see multiple characters, each with unique abilities and weapons. There’s also weapon customization, which gives players the opportunity to try a weapon out, further customize it after a battle, and return to the arena with it to try it out once more.
In terms of abilities, we see some players using a tommy gun-like weapon to call bullets down from above, and we also see some damage-defying shields and bubbles, too. Some enemies are seen using swords fit for a samurai while others use weapons that look more at home in a Saw movie.
Throughout the entire trailer, we see a regal-looking character dancing to some poppy music. Perhaps she’s involved with the actual live-air competition, or maybe she’s one of the fighters that can be used in-game.
If one thing is clear in the trailer, it’s that the number one goal of anyone in the arena is to survive. It doesn’t appear to be a battle royale, but rather something more akin to an arena melee-based deathmatch.
The third-person survival action game will hit PS4 and PS5 in Spring 2022.
