There are few things in life as constant as zombies in video games, and at this point we’ve all killed our fair share. Across decades of gaming and dozens of consoles and platforms, it’s impossible to truly quantify how many undead corpses I’ve relieved of their heads and limbs. And through it all, it’s always been more fun with a couple of friends by my side.
That’s a secret sauce that Vertigo Games locked onto very quickly. Back in 2016, when they released Arizona Sunshine on PC VR alongside the launch of the Touch controllers for the original Rift, it was a groundbreaking game. Realistic physics, a variety of weapons, large levels to explore, and dozens of zombies to fight off either solo or with friends is what made that game shine. Now, with After the Fall, Vertigo Games returns to the “fighting off tons of creepy zombie monsters” genre with a bigger, badder, and better adventure than ever before.
