Have a Nice Death is on Xbox and PlayStation

Have a Nice Death! It’s not a common well-wishing phrase. However Magic Design Studios and Gearbox Publishing birthed the phrase in the gaming industry when their game released in March 2023 on PC and Switch. Have a Nice Death is a gritty roguelike title that was incredibly well-received on other platforms. So the move over to Xbox and PlayStation seems a no-brainer.

You are Death!

Available now as a shadow-drop on Xbox and PlayStation consoles for the first time, in Have a Nice Death you will be playing as Death himself, with all his macabre-ness intact. Within Death Inc. exists seven unique departments, each posing their own challenges. Use over 70 weapons to scythe through your enemies, and hopefully make it through the entirety of Death Inc.’s offices in one piece!

Of course, HAND is a roguelike title (think Hades, Enter the Gungeon etc.), so don’t expect to complete the game in one run. Instead, after each death you will be reincarnated, and some items will be carried over and upgraded. Progression is made as much between runs as it is within them. This is the key to all roguelikes!

“Just like our fans, we are beyond thrilled to see Have a Nice Death launch on PlayStation and Xbox today,” said Simon Dutertre, Lead Game Designer at Magic Design Studios. “All of the support we have received over the years from our amazing fanbase has been absolutely incredible and we are forever grateful. To the PlayStation and Xbox players out there, thank you for your patience and we hope you enjoy your time in Death Incorporated!”  

Key Features

  • Welcome to Death Incorporated – Discover and explore the seven darkly-charming, procedurally-generated departments of Death Inc., where you’ll meet a diverse cast of memorable characters—like your affable pumpkin-headed assistant, Pump Quinn—who are always willing to share the latest office gossip.
  • Reap What You Sow – Sharpen your skills (and scythe) through fast-paced hack n’ slash combat, utilizing over 70 unique weapons and spells you can find and upgrade to create devastating combinations.
  • Death Never Sleeps – Since Death can’t die, use what you’ve learned and earned to overcome the numerous minions and bosses in each department of Death Incorporated… over and over. A performance review after every run guarantees that you’ll unlock interesting items and upgrades that will help you progress on your journey.
  • When Life Gives You Curses – Taking more power for yourself is a controversial move in Death Incorporated’s company culture. For instance, adopting a Curse upgrade for yourself might result in the Labor Inspector granting your subordinates enhanced powers, or worse, raising the cost of koffee and other items that are vital to your work output.
  • Prove You’re the Best Underworld Boss – After completing your first adventure across Death, Inc. there’s still work that needs to be done to prove you’re the best boss there is. From completing special challenges and trying out recently-unlocked difficulty modes that feature unique modifiers to earning rewards to complete your Pitbook by getting all the weapons, spells, curses and upgrades – your “to-do” list is far from completed.
  • You Call the Shots – Make your playthrough the most optimal experience that’s right for you, boss. With various accessibility options at your disposal, including adjusting sound and language settings, and full controller remapping functionality support — you’re free to fully customize your experience before hacking’n’scything away

I'm an avid gamer who will play pretty much anything... but stick an open world or adventure game in front of me and I'm more than happy.
