What you need to know about the new survival shooter - Including how to get free DLC!
By Duncan Heaney

If you’re a fan of tactical action, a compelling story, and awesome mechs… well, you already know where this is going. LEFT ALIVE is available now on PlayStation 4 and Steam.

The new game’s a collaboration between legends of the gaming industry, including Toshifumi Nabeshima (director, Armored Core series), Takayuki Yanase (mech designer, Ghost in the Shell: Arise, Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Xenoblade Chronicles X) and Yoji Shinkawa, character designer from KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS (Metal Gear series).

Read on, and we’ll take a look at the game, and tell you how to get free DLC based on World of Tanks and Half-Life!


LEFT ALIVE is a survival action shooter, set in the war-torn country of Novo Slava.

The game gives you control over three characters, each designed by Yoji Shinkawa, in a compelling human story of survival. The game also involves giant mechs called Wanzers, because giant mechs are awesome.

You’ll have to use a combination of useful tools, quick thinking, and maybe even a mech or two, to complete your objectives in LEFT ALIVE because it’s almost entirely up to you how you play.

There’s no set path through each encounter, and you have to choose your approach, craft tools with the resources available, and then use them strategically to execute your plan.

For example, do you sneak through the backstreets, using gadgets to mark and distract your foes, or do you go loud, and use weapons or explosives to force your way to success? My suggestion - experiment with a little of both.
