VR Spy Game “I Expect You To Die” Gets Relaxing New Level

Kick your feet up, relax, and try not to die in this free new level for the PS VR super-spy simulator.

Agent, you’ve been hard at work saving the world, and you really deserve a vacation. So we’re going to to give you one. On October 24, you will be able to download a new update to I Expect You To Die (IEYTD) entitled First Class. New and existing players will travel in a first class train cabin on an all-expenses-paid vacation across India. What do I mean by “all-expenses-paid?” The level is free, of course! Sit back, relax, and… well, try not to die.

I Expect You To Die: First Class

The response to IEYTD has been overwhelmingly positive. We have seen many excellent reviews of the game, but some reviewers mention how four levels doesn’t feel like enough content. We understand this issue is the game’s biggest weakness, and frankly, we feel like it’s a good problem to have. In the end, however, we knew we had to address it. In mid-April 2017, we started by putting together a small group, some from the original team and some new members, and we set out to make a new level. Narrowing down our ideas from the initial brainstorms took some time. We wanted to find a setting that felt new and exciting, and allowed us to experiment with some interactions we didn’t get to try the first time around. Fast forward through four months and countless playtests and here we are, squashing the final bugs and getting builds ready for certification.

The team is super excited to share this new level with you, but, you know the game — we can’t share too much without spoiling things. Just know that there’s nothing more relaxing than the click-clack of a train as it rolls lazily through the majestic mountains of Northern India. Enjoy a soothing beverage or a local delicacy as you read the morning paper. We believe trains are the best place to meet new friends and catch up with old ones.

As a developer, I always want to create the best experience for the player. With an escape-the-room game, a well-designed experience comes from countless tweaks to the tools and puzzles presented to the player. Too easy and it’s no fun; too hard and it’s no fun. Walking that line is almost as treacherous as the scenarios in the game, so you’ll have to let me know how we did. Your videos, blogs, vlogs, and social media posts are awesome to see, so keep them coming!

I also wanted to say how flattered we all are by the kind words players had to say about the theme song to the game. We loved making it. And maybe, while you’re enjoying your vacation, you’ll find some new music to listen to. Enjoy your trip, Agents. You’ve earned it.

  • Sounds like a great time to finally put the game on sale (even just $5 less?) and bring in some new customers!! ;)

  • Yay, here we go die again and again, sipping a cup of tea in between! Thank you!

  • It have been waiting for this to go on sale due to it’s length, glad your addressing that issue. Looks like a hoot to play.

  • So happy to hear it!
    All VR games are expensive and have little content, but I Expect You To Die was the coolest experience i’ve had with my PS VR and was worth the price tag for me. Having another level for free is bonkers. Hope to hear your new VR projects in the future

  • Reminds me of Persona 5’s art direction! I love it!

  • I can see why folks loved that 007-style intro. It was great! And I love seeing the post-launch support. Definitely on my radar now :-)

  • Thanks!

  • This is great new I got the game the day it came out as I am a big fan of escape rooms and puzzles like this. More content is great and if you guys ever make a squeal I would pre-order as soon as I hear of it. It might not push the limits of VR but it sure shows what a great VR game can look like.

  • This is great news! Ive bought waay too many vr games and i still think this is by far the best one. You not only made it fun but made it super comfortable. And perhaps most importantly it felt like you could only make this game for VR.

    The controls in this game need to be copied for all types of games like this. You guys clearly have a love for this game and a respect to us gamers.

    Im a fan for life. Watcha workin on next?

    • Happy to hear you like the game! (and controls!)
      We’ve always got projects being worked on, related to IEYTD and others… you could sign up for our mailing list here:

  • Fantastic! Loved playing through this the first time. Will happily redownload for this!

  • Any idea when this will be available on the Hong Kong PSN store? So many games either come out late or not at all here…
