El Segundo, Calif. – Sept. 25, 2017GungHo Online Entertainment America announced last week at Tokyo Game Show (TGS) 2017 that Grasshopper Manufacture's widely popular free-to-play hack-and-slash sensation, LET IT DIE, on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system will have a collab with Wargaming’s hit, free-to-play gaming marvel World of Tanks.

Wargaming APAC Director of Publishing Strategy, Ozan Kocoglu, said “We are incredibly excited about this collaboration with GungHo and Let It Die, as it will be the first time in Wargaming’s history, that World of Tanks will feature in a title, outside of the Wargaming franchise. This is an example of the phenomenon that has become World of Tanks, which now has over 130 million players worldwide.”

World of Tanks is a team-based massively multiplayer online action game dedicated to armored warfare of the mid-20th century. Players are able to throw themselves into the epic tank battles of World War II utilizing hundreds of vehicles in battle sites around the globe.

With its tactical warfare-based gameplay and dedicated MMO features, World of Tanks will invade LET IT DIE with exclusive new collab skill decals with the possibility of other unannounced features. Wargaming is known for its iconic warfare games World of Tanks, World of Warplanes, and World of Warships. The World of Tanks collab will be coming to LET IT DIE later this year.

LET IT DIE continues bringing vast amounts of content for players such as BLACK THUNDER, the third of four FORCEMEN revealed via livestream and the newest updates to Tokyo Death Metro, the game’s asynchronous multiplayer mode. Back in April, LET IT DIE debuted the first of four FORCEMEN, WHITE STEEL, in a livestream outlining major changes coming to LET IT DIE in the second half of 2017. Meanwhile, RED NAPALM was revealed as a follow up FORCEMEN in July.

LET IT DIE has passed three million downloads in North America, Europe, and Japan.
