After the Fall, the next game from the creators of hit VR shooter Arizona Sunshine, is coming to PlayStation VR and PC VR systems in summer 2021. The game takes the hordes of zombie games and spices it up with four player online co-op and full cross-platform multiplayer, as you can see in the new cinematic trailer.
Yup, it looks a lot like a very snowy Left 4 Dead, doesn’t it?
The game is set in an alternate reality 1980s LA where snow has enveloped the city. You’ll be battling through the snowbreed, which are undead creatures with smarts. Instead of mindlessly shambling or running, they can hunt in a wolf-like pack trying to strike in numbers. There’s also the huge brutes that can pop out of nowhere and attack with huge ice fists.
We won’t have to wait long to see gameplay, as Vertigo Games promise that a new gameplay trailer will be released in the “next couple of weeks”. They also tease a closed beta test sometime in the future as well.
For those playing on PSVR, you’ll be able to play with dual PlayStation Move controllers or the Aim controller. The intention is to make you feel like an 80s action hero with weapons like a cassette player turned missile launcher.
Announced back in 2019, After the Fall has been a long time coming, and was originally expected in 2020. It’s hopefully going to be worth the wait, a good four years since Arizona Sunshine arrived on PSVR in 2017. That title was one of the early highlights of the burgeoning VR market, and at the time we said:
If you’re serious about PlayStation VR and love first person shooters, Arizona Sunshine is a no-brainer. Mowing down mobs of the undead is immensely satisfying with a great spread of weapons and plenty of opportunities to have some fun. The campaign is well-paced, supplying small but welcome diversions to break up the action with little morsels of story here and there. At £33, some players will naturally want more bang for their buck, but the quality of content on offer here is fantastic. With the bar set even higher than before, it will be interesting to watch how developers try to emulate and improve upon Arizona Sunshine.
