Hi everyone, I’m TamTu on the Vertigo Games Community Team and I’m here to tell you all about the immersive thrill that awaits you in our 4-player co-op action FPS After the Fall, coming to PS VR with full support for cross-platform multiplayer.
Today we’re sharing details on a variety of elements of After the Fall, including the game world, its enemies, and the combat options available to you to address in a new video:
After the Fall is an immersive thrill ride with fast-paced 4-player co-op action set in 1980s-inspired post-apocalyptic Los Angeles. It’s not your typical sunny LA though; in After the Fall, all hell froze and LA was left in ruins covered in ice. Set almost 20 years after the apocalypse, the city is overrun by ferocious, once-human creatures called Snowbreed, who have driven humanity underground, where they continue a fierce fight for their survival.
You, the player, are a Harvest Runner, one of the few brave enough to venture out into the cold. Along with your squad of other racers, you’ll jump into containment sites that are filled to the brim with Snowbreed. The people of the various colonies of Los Angeles are counting on you to enter these areas infested with monsters in order to bring the necessary resources to keep the lights on on the line. In return, you’re rewarded with bigger, better weapons for getting back into that satisfying Snowbreed removal loop. It’s no easy task, and only Harvest Runners can face the various dangers these Snowbreeds embody.
Special snow race
As you may know from my blog post for the previous PS VR Spotlight back in March, there are several fierce snow races out there looking to feast on you. Now I’d like to give you an overview of some of the more mutant types you’ll face in t he frozen doomsday wilderness to prepare for battle:
The eater is a huge, revolting type of Snowbreed who will destroy everything in his path if he explodes. Your best bet against this terrifying creature is to keep your distance and have a specific goal whenever it gets too close.
The Mastodon is different from regular Snowbreed. This huge slab of undead muscle has only one goal: to grab you and club you in the dust. Getting hit by him is a 1-knockout, so listen to your team and keep an eye out for him; it’s a priority target on your list!
the crash is tall and very aggressive. When these guys show up, you better stay away and really work together to take them down. As you progress you will come across other versions of the Smasher, but that’s all I can say for now!
Now that you know more about the monsters that await you, surely the next question on your mind is how we are going to help you take them down.
In After the Fall, it’s all about knowing your enemies and working with your team to survive. Your next best friend is your vast arsenal of weapons. This consists of a variety of handguns, shotguns, rifles, and more, and as you become more experienced as a racer, higher quality variants will become available. It is up to you to use these weapons wisely. Only one thing is certain; Whether you’re rushing to the front with your custom handgun or standing back with your shotgun and explosives, don’t run out of ammo!
You will be able to craft weapons while engaging in the intense combat of the game using real movements. Customizing weapons and gear requires resources and floppy blueprints found all over town, so you’ll need to scavenge the remnants of civilization in order to stay one step ahead of your enemies.
We’ve only shown you the tip of the iceberg, and there will be more information on After the Fall in the near future. For now, gather your team and stay freezing! TamTu, outside.
