It’s nice to know what in the world you’re doing, isn’t it? That can be tricky when you’re starting a new game, but the developers behind the upcoming VR-enabled co-op RPG Prevent the Fall know it’s important. So the game’s latest patch focuses heavily on quality of life improvements and starts with a tutorial, explaining the basics of gameplay and control for brand-new players. In the process, you get some basic armaments and an idea of how to use them, so that should make things easier.
The patch (which is the game’s tenth such patch since it entered early access 19 days ago) also improves creature animations, UI settings, pet status bars, and a variety of other minor fixes and improvements. Check out the full list of changes in the patch notes to get a fine-detail rundown of what’s being changed, which is probably a good idea before you start clicking around blindly and trying to find what’s changed. Perhaps the game could add a tutorial for its patch notes, and… no, that’d be stupid.
So here’s a new one to our games list today: Indie developer D.W.S’s “all the things” ARPG Prevent the Fall. It’s one of those dungeon crawlers that supports everything from singleplayer offline to fully online multiplayer mode, and it boasts VR support too.
“The major features are all in place, and you can rise to level 20. The game features optional virtual reality support, but it is not required. It can be played with gamepad, vive motion controllers, or keyboard and mouse. Oculus Touch will be officially supported in the future, but Oculus users can currently participate using gamepads. The Action RPG gameplay revolves around generated quests with a mixture of generated and static dungeon elements. You can play entirely in single player, or can host or join multiplayer co-op sessions. Co-op sessions can mix and match VR and non-VR players.”
D.W.S cautions would-be players that the game is “very much a work in progress” with the usual assortment of early access bugs. The game is expected to move out of early access by the end of 2017. As of press time, the EA version of the game is just under $13.
