The wild and over-the-top action game Let It Die, from No More Heroes developer Grasshopper Manufacture, has passed 2 million downloads, it was announced today. This figure includes downloads of the free-to-play PlayStation 4 game in North America, Europe, and Japan; it came out December.

To celebrate the "momentous and bloody milestone," everyone who logs into the game between February 16 and February 23 will receive one Death Metal, which is the game's currency.

Additionally, players who craft weapons during the promo period will receive the following rewards:

  • 1 Weapon – 1 Day Express Pass x1
  • 2 Weapons – Four-leaf Clover Skill Decal (Increases critical chance by 10%)
  • 3 Weapons – Death Metal x1

Go to the Let It Die website to learn more about the event.

Additionally, a new Let's Play video featuring Dogma and Clerks director Kevin Smith has been released--check it out in the video above. Smith is also in the new Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare DLC.

Let It Die began its life as Lily Bergamo, but at E3 2014, it was confirmed that the game morphed into its current state. It is the first game from Suda, AKA Suda 51, and developer Grasshopper Manufacture since the studio was acquired by GungHo Online Entertainment (best known for its hugely successful free-to-play mobile game Puzzle & Dragons) and the first PS4 game for both companies.

Like other free-to-play games, Let It Die has microtransactions--but the game is not pay-to-win.

There is no word on if Let It Die will ever be released for Xbox One, PC, or other platforms.
