You’re in an alternate 1980s where the remains of civilization are all that’s left in the infested and ice-covered ruins. Play alone or with up to 4 others to try to take back the city with weapons against colossal bosses, specials and huge hordes, working your way through the part-demolished buildings ridding them of the undead. After the Fall promises to be a game full of encounters, missions and events.
This epic VR game comes from the makers of Arizona Sunshine and After the Fall designers are hoping to replicate its success. It is another FPS (first-person shooter) game in VR that involves snow zombies. Vertigo Games haven’t really played around with their successful formula for After the Fall - it’s similarly an all-out zombie shooting game that involves collecting supplies and popping heads with a co-op taste.
It's seamless in its gameplay and allows up to four people to play together in a hostile and vast VR world set in an alternate 1980s LA. They must fight for their survival. Don’t expect hot Arizona - this alternate Los Angeles is a snowy and unforgiving place.
After the Fall means players from across the globe can play in the VR world and experience the atmospheric and cinematic gameplay.
For people wanting an FPS (first-person shooter) VR game with a zombie theme, Arizona Sunshine by Vertigo Games is up there with the most popular games, finding its way to a whole host of headsets in the last two or so years. This studio is seeking to replicate this game’s success with a new first-person shooter game involving zombies - After the Fall.
Civilization collapsed some 20 years prior and mankind finds itself in the middle of a would-be ice age of its own catastrophic doing. The climate suffered and people started meddling with experimental, designer drugs leading to mutations. Snowbreed, a terrible outbreak of zombie-like creatures, inundate this hellscape of snow and ice. You’re a survivor, immune to the substance side-effects and you’re the last hope for saving the city and humanity.
With real-life movements, you wield your catastrophic powers, developing your style of combat as you go.
Unlike many immersive FPS VR titles, After the Fall feels a bit more like it belongs in an arcade in terms of your weapons. You don’t have to worry about reloading your weapons manually or storing them in your backpack. Some players might welcome this not having to worry about such things that make playing more realistically challenging while others might find this somewhat shallow and not immersive enough as other games.
There is a mixture of weapons to use sub-machine guns, pistols and a rocket launcher that is a novelty mounted on your wrist. With this, you’re able to lock-on to multiple zombies if the hordes become a bit much.
Another thing about After the Fall in terms of VR interaction is your ability to pick up loot from a distance by attracting it magnetically. This doesn’t really do any favours for those who love room-scale virtual reality whereby loot is picked up manually with the hands like in the real world.
After the Fall’s visuals are certainly striking. The environment is rich and pretty that give a nuclear-winter feel as the buildings are covered in snowfall. It has slick gameplay and is fast.
Fear not, completing the game and getting to the end is just the beginning! With the story completed, you’re free to venture into the world of blood-pumping encounters, missions and events.

Dispatched into hostile wetlands in your tactical kayak using your paddle to steer and move stealthily through hostile and remote locations, utilise military weapons and equipment to evade and neutralise the enemy threat.

The Lab offers eight different minigames, each giving a look into the unique ways that VR could interpret various video game genres. These include: an Angry Birds analogue, a tower defence game, an intergalactic shoot ‘em up, secrets galore, and the chance to become a robot mechanic. The rest aren’t really games per se, it’s more that they consider what avenues VR might go down in the future. Amongst these are an interactive solar system, detailed CT scans of the human body and a “virtual holiday” in the Icelandic wilderness, where you’re accompanied by a robotic pup.
