Hey everyone! I’m TamTu, community manager at Vertigo Games, and today I have some exciting news to share.

Our team has been hard at work to bring you the most exciting, action-packed four-player co-op action FPS that will take you and your friends to the ice-covered, urban wastelands of snowbreed-infested Los Angeles. We’re excited to reveal that After the Fall is coming to the Oculus Rift Platform with full cross-platform multiplayer support this Summer.

What are snowbreed, you ask? Feast your eyes on an all-new cinematic trailer that will introduce these ferocious, undead beings that have taken over the city, alongside our four heroes:

While snowbreed technically classify as undead, they are nothing like the typical zombie: snowbreed are terrifying, savage monsters that behave like a pack of wolves, waiting to strike in big numbers... As you try to keep your headset cool fending off these huge hordes with your friends by your side, you will want to keep your ice peeled for the more twisted types. Can you imagine a towering brute instantly flattening you with a strike of a huge ice fist in VR? Brrr.

After the Fall is set in the frozen ruins of an alternate Los Angeles that was ground to a halt in the height of the 1980s. Gear up with an assortment of weaponry and tools—some of them heavily inspired by 1980s tech, reinvented by the survivors of LA to help them survive. Unlocked that iconic cassette player-turned-missile launcher to keep the hordes at bay? Don’t let your guard down just yet—your next paythrough won’t feel the same.

So what’s next for After the Fall? As we speak, we’re preparing an all-new gameplay trailer showing off what to expect from playing this intense four-player co-op shooter with your friends, strangers you meet in camp, or our friendly AI companions—but in the meantime, we’re sharing a couple of gameplay GIFs to keep you company.

We promise you can’t start prepping for After the Fall too early, so round up your friends, head on over to the official website and subscribe to the newsletter for a chance at closed beta access.
