Vertigo Games, the developer of Arizona Sunshine has announced that their upcoming zombie survival shooter, After the Fall, will be releasing in Summer 2021 to PC VR and PS VR with crossplay multiplayer options.
In the same announcement they also say that the game will be released on other, “yet to be announced VR platforms,”. This likely means that they are working on a Quest port of the game, but it probably will not release in the same time frame as the PC VR and PS VR version.
They announced After the Fall at E3 2019 with a planned release window of 2020. Like many other developers during that period, they experienced delays and issues surrounding the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and were forced to move the release date into 2021.
The game is set in a frozen, grim world where most of the population have turned into shambling monsters (see zombies). The player, along with up to three friends will have to explore an icy alternate 1980s Los Angeles searching for weapons and upgrades in an attempt to survive.
Alongside the release reveal, they have also premiered a new cinematic trailer and promised that within the next few weeks they be revealing an all-new gameplay trailer showing off what to expect when you’re venturing out into the world of After the Fall.
Speaking about the upcoming release, Richard Stitselaar, Studio Director at Vertigo Games said: “Since the early concept phase, After the Fall has been all about having VR gamers team up together – regardless of the device they play on – through full cross-platform multiplayer functionality. In a time of widespread social isolation, it feels like that goal now has additional relevance. We’re truly excited about moving into this next campaign phase, in which we’ll be inviting more players into the game and sharing more details as we gear up towards launch.”
