Vertigo Games, the studio behind Arizona Sunshine (2016), today announced a new co-op VR shooter that promises to bring up to four co-op players into what the studio calls “a vast, hostile world.”
Called After the Fall, Vertigo says the upcoming VR action shooter features a “cinematic and atmospheric” campaign, both solo and multiplayer gameplay, and endgame content built for VR.
Here’s how Vertigo describes it:
Set in the post-apocalyptic, ice-covered ruins of an alternate 1980s Los Angeles, After the Fall pits up to four players against a vast, hostile world in a raging fight for control of the city and the survival of humanity. Go solo or join forces with players worldwide as you scavenge the remains of civilization, face relentless hordes and larger-than-life bosses, craft a huge range of guns and deadly close combat weapons, and wield devastating powers with real-life movements.
The studio will be hosting beta access soon. You can sign up on the game’s website starting today. You can also keep tabs on the game via its Steam and Oculus Store pages.
Vertigo maintains the final version is set to launch sometime in 2020.
“Arizona Sunshine was one of the first full-feature games developed exclusively for VR. Ever since, we’ve been eager to take it up a few notches and push hard at the boundaries of VR again,” said Richard Stitselaar, Studio Director at Vertigo Games. “With After the Fall, we’re bringing VR to life at a scale we believe hasn’t been done before – a seamless multiplayer experience shared with as many players as possible set in a dynamic world that will keep them coming back for more.”
Vertigo is hosting demos of After the Fall at E3 this year. We have feet on the ground in Los Angeles for the event, so check back soon.
