It’s time for the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) once again, and Vertigo Games, the studio behind popular titles such as Arizona Sunshine and Skyworld, has announced its latest virtual reality (VR) project. Currently in production is After the Fall, a multiplayer first-person shooter (FPS) set in a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles.
Taking what the team has learnt with Arizona Sunshine and turning it up a notch, After the Fall allows for single and co-operative play for up to four players.
“Set in the ice-covered ruins of LA nearly 20 years after the apocalypse. A generation has passed since a mysterious outbreak caused by the excessive use of designer drugs birthed the terrible Snowbreed, infesting our cities and collapsing civilization. You, one of the survivors seemingly immune to the side-effects of the substances, are humanity’s last hope of resurgence,” explains the story synopsis.
Players will be able to explore an LA trapped in an alternate 1980s, scavenging whatever remains to craft a range of deadly ranged and melee weapons to fight against the different hordes of Snowbreed’s. Specials will test those skills while awe-inspiring bosses will provide a monstrous challenge. And it’s not just weapons you can build, armour and other gear can be upgraded and modded to ensure survival in the snow-covered landscape.
Built to make the most of VR, After the Fall is a living, breathing virtual world to be shared with players from all over the world. Featuring a story-driven campaign, once completed players will be able to return and venture back out into a city full of events, missions, and more blood-pumping encounters.
Vertigo Games hasn’t confirmed which headsets will be supported at the moment, although just like its previous titles and because of the co-op gameplay, expect most high-end devices to be compatible. Additionally, the studio has yet to confirm a release date for the videogame. Don’t forget that Arizona Sunshine will be getting new DLC called The Damned this summer
VRFocus will be at E3 2019 all week to bring you the latest updates and announcements from the prestigious gaming event. And as further details regard After the Fall are released, we’ll let you know.
