This week, we released a bunch of titles and updates across the Quest and Rift Platforms. Here’s a rundown of the highlights:

After the Fall
You’ve braved the sweltering heat of Arizona Sunshine’s desert landscapes. Now strap in for After the Fall, an action-packed adventure that lets you roll solo with AI companions or a group of friends in 4 player co-op—but this time you might want to bring your coat. Take on hordes of creatures hellbent on ridding the world of all humanity. Rather than fighting traditional zombies, you’ll be taking on the ice-riddled walking corpses known as the Snowbreed. With a huge arsenal of highly-customizable weapons, embark on evolving missions that span the frozen shell of Los Angeles, 20 years after the fall of civilization. And launch is just the beginning. The first Frontrunner Season (free for all players as part of the After the Fall - Launch Edition) includes four new maps, new game modes, new weapons and devices, new player features, and more!

Perfect For: Fans of Arizona Sunshine, Zero Caliber: Reloaded, and Larcenauts
Developer: Vertigo Games
Available On: Quest 2 // Rift Platform

In this sandbox VR adventure you'll start with a blank canvas of empty land.

Grow and harvest crops, hunt for the elusive Morel mushroom, and find rarities to give you valuable commodities for trade. Use your metal detector and trusty shovel to find and secure many different treasures. Let out your inner nature enthusiast and photograph beautiful and sometimes rare animals. The path you take is yours to choose. Every homestead will be unique. What will you create?

There are also some nice Christmas decorations, both to keep your Christmas Folk happy and give your city that special holiday feel.
