A lot of death and destruction in both, though
As Grasshopper Manufacture’s PS4-exclusive free-to-play Let it Die nears its one-year anniversary, it’s turning to collaborations as its primary form of advertising. The game is popular, no doubt, as it cleared three million downloads back in May. Still, install bases tend to be front-loaded and dwindle over time.
In the coming days, Let it Die is teaming up with World of Tanks for a cross-promotion that takes place from November 30, 2017 through January 11, 2018. These are the 10 skill decals that will be added to Let it Die:
- World of Tanks — Max HP increased by 45%
- Tiger II — Fire a War Ensemble weapon for five seconds, which reloads with explosive rounds that deal 20% more damage
- Steel Wall — 20% chance of not taking any damage when hit
- Chi-Ha — The closer you are when attacking with a War Ensemble weapon, the higher the damage, up to 30% more damage.
- Sharpshooter — Reduced bullet spray and recoil when using a War Ensemble weapon
- Patrol Duty — Shows enemies on the map permanently and decreases dash stamina consumption and fatigue time by 50%
- Billotte’s Medal — Players recover faster from being set on fire or from paralysis when electrocuted
- T95E2 — Increases attack power during down attack by 50%
- Call for Vengeance — Rage gauge increases by +2 when starting a raid from the revenge list
- Invader — Increases attack by 20% in a raid
But, what exactly do Let it Die and World of Tanks have in common? They are both free-to-play titles, and that’s about it. There aren’t any publisher ties, regional connections, or same platform exclusivities. It’s just two free-to-play games looking for mutual exposure in each others’ player bases.
More on-brand for Let it Die, players who sign in between December 21 and January 11 will get a pair of Uncle Death’s Space FunGlasses that add a boost to defense and stamina. Tanks are a weird add, but we’ll take as much of the skateboarding skeleton as we can get.
