Video game developer/publisher Vertigo Games – best known for VR zombie shooter, Arizona Sunshine. – fixing to release a new title in the summer of 2021. Having recently released cinematic and gameplay trailers for the upcoming, First-Person Co-Op, Virtual Reality Shooter, After The Fall, the studio seems to be setting fans up for an exhilarating immersive experience.
The gaming firm behind the upcoming title is no stranger to the Zombie genre. Having found a good around of success with their other undead themed shoot-em-up, Arizona Sunshine, which immerses the player into a lonely, post-zombie-apocalyptic narrative. This title, however, offers a more cooperative gaming experience, allowing up to four players to get in on the action.
Also unlike its predecessor, After Fall sets the player in a colder and more metropolitan setting. The game throws in a variety of mutant-zombie types, all the more to keep you busy with my sweet. Some players may appreciate the game’s retro theme as well.
Players will find themselves immersed in alternate 1980’s Los Angeles. 20 years after a cataclysmic event. Players venture out into a frozen ruin of a city, and must use makeshift weapons, and powers to fend off horde after horde of grotesquely misshapen undead. The best part is that one doesn’t have to go it alone with this title. Up to four players, or a single player backed by AI allies, can help you get prepared for the real zombie apocalypse (should it ever occur.)
“Armed with full VR motion controls, After the Fall will make you feel like a slightly overpowered 1980s action hero as you engage in the game’s high-paced combat with real-life movements.” stated the studio, in a statement announcing the game’s pre-release material; which included gameplay screenshots, as well as cinematic, and gameplay trailers.
Critics have complained about the game’s immersive experience when the studio – back in 2019 – a preview of the After The Fall gaming title. Vertigo – as the gameplay trailor suggests – seem to have really put some work into making the game’s VR gameplay feel more natural. We noted gesture based reload action.
Another thing to be excited about, regarding the upcoming release of After The Fall, is that Vertigo have guaranteed fans that they have engineered the title “from the ground up” to be compatible with multiple VR platforms at time of release. Game streaming platform, Steam, PSVR, Oculus, and a few other VR hardware brands have already announced support for the title, upon release.
Players can visit the After The Fall official website to sign up for their newsletter to get the latest in the game, or to put themselves in line to be the first to try the game out in a pre-release, beta version. “Go solo or team up in cross-platform 4-player co-op as you explore an all-new post-apocalyptic VR world from the creators of Arizona Sunshine.”
This title sort of reminds one of the indie PC title from a few years ago, Left For Dead. It also featured a co-op zombie shooter element to it, as well as some really challenging mutant zombies. The immersive experience, added to this type of game is bound to garner a nod of approval from critics.
