Polished new VR shooter, After The Fall, is coming to PSVR.
The news was confirmed during Sony’s State of Play livestream today. The game will be arriving on the headset in 2020. So far we’d only seen the game confirmed for Oculus Rift, so it’s good to see it confirmed for other platforms. That said, it’s not confirmed if it will come to PC and PSVR on the same day.
After The Fall is set in an alternate history in which a second ice age has overcome the Earth. A race of zombie-like enemies has emerged and, as one of humanity’s few survivors, you have to fight your way through overwhelming hordes. It features up to four play co-op.
We initially announced the game during our E3 VR Showcase back in June. It features incredible visuals, though we’re yet to see what truly makes it shine. At the very least it will offer a persistent hub of VR shooter action, with a full campaign and the promise of end game content too.
“Just how far this promise goes remains to be seen, but it’s big enough that Vertigo is taking sign-ups for a beta,” we said in our preview. “If the studio successfully establishes the game as a long-term hub for persistent VR action, I can see After The Fall being a big deal for a community that’s constantly pining for long-form content.”
This isn’t Vertigo’s only news of the day. Earlier on, the studio confirmed that its next DLC for zombie shooter Arizona Sunshine, The Damned, will be launching on PC VR and PSVR next week. Plus we’re still waiting for that game to hit Oculus Quest.
