About After The Fall VR

“After the Fall VR” is a first-person shooter (FPS) designed for virtual reality platforms, developed by Vertigo Games. It offers an immersive multiplayer experience, allowing up to four players to team up in a cooperative gameplay setting. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic world where players must battle against hordes of enemies, known as Snowbreed, in a frozen, hostile environment. The narrative unfolds in a version of Los Angeles that has succumbed to a new ice age following the events of the ‘Cold War’ in the 1980s, with survivors forced to live underground. Players can engage in various game modes, including Harvest Runs, Horde, Team Deathmatch, and Free-For-All, utilizing a wide array of weapons and combat devices to survive and reclaim the surface. “After the Fall VR” supports cross-play across multiple VR platforms, including Quest 2, PSVR, and PC VR devices, facilitating a broad multiplayer community. The game emphasizes intense co-op action, strategic gameplay, and offers a range of difficulty levels to cater to different player skills.

Horde Maps Expansion

A major highlight of the Nightfall update is the addition of three new Horde maps, which have been adapted from the game’s PvP content. These maps are designed to challenge players’ cooperative skills and offer more space for strategic gameplay.

  • Highrise: Players will find themselves running circles at the top of a skyscraper, fighting off the relentless Snowbreed.
  • Warehouse: This abandoned warehouse is not only a battleground but also a treasure trove of weapon caches and crates.
  • Market: The lit-up streets of Chinatown serve as the backdrop for intense defense against hordes of Snowbreed.

New Weapon: Hunting Rifle

The update introduces the Hunting Rifle, a lever-action firearm with armor-piercing rounds capable of penetrating Ice Armor. This powerful addition to the arsenal uses Green Ammo and comes with a variety of attachments and skins for customization.

  • Armor-Piercing Rounds: The Hunting Rifle’s rounds can pierce through Ice Armor, allowing players to take down multiple Snowbreed with a single shot.
  • Attachments and Skins: With 18 attachments and 37 new skins, players can personalize their Hunting Rifle to their liking.
  • Unlocking Mechanism: The rifle can be unlocked by decrypting Prototype Floppies (Red).

Harvest Rank System

The Nightfall update introduces the Harvest Rank system, which allows players to level up by collecting Harvest. This new ranking system is a way to showcase players’ skill and dedication to the game’s community, known as the Hub.

  • Rank Progression: Players start at Rank 0 and can progress up to Rank 100, with new Borders & Titles unlocked every 10 Ranks.
  • No Rank Down: The Harvest collected can be spent without affecting the player’s rank.

  • Lobby Browser: A new feature in the Hub to quickly scan through available matches.
  • Service Pistol Crafting: Players can now join any Harvest Run or mode after crafting their Service Pistol.
  • Invite Previews: Before accepting an invite, players can see the mode, difficulty, and level.

  • Haptic Feedback: Added to all UI interactions for a more tactile menu navigation experience.
  • End Screen UI Rework: Enhanced to make gathering and decrypting Floppies more enjoyable.

Progression and Quality of Life Enhancements

The progression system has received significant quality-of-life improvements, making interactions more engaging.

  • Floppy Rewards: Floppies now reward players upon successful deposit in a Safe Room, even after a team wipe.
  • Harvest Increase: Damage dealt to Snowbreed now yields 50% more Harvest.
  • Floppy Disk Spawns: Increased from 2 to 3 per level.
