Zombie apocalypse action-adventure roguelite; The Last Stand: Aftermath, is out now on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S today.
A brand new and reinvented entry in an iconic and cult-classic series of zombie survival games, The Last Stand: Aftermath puts players in the shoes of a survivor of the zombie apocalypse, whose days are unfortunately numbered
Discover the truth
The Last Stand: Aftermath joins a small colony, locked down following the deadly catastrophe and only barely hanging on against the zombie threat.
Players will take control of a survivor from the group, who has been infected with the deadly virus and must leave their compound to make the most of their final days among the ruins of civilization. They must gather supplies for those who they will be leaving behind and hunt for the truth behind the zombie virus before they ultimately succumb to the infection.
With the fall of each survivor, Aftermath’s roguelite gameplay allows players to continue their fight as a new character, who will keep gathered supplies, as well as perks and upgrades from their last playthrough.
A tragic tale which forces players to reckon with their characters’ mortality, The Last Stand: Aftermath will ask the question: how much can you give before you are gone forever?
A Kickstarter success
Following a successful Kickstarter to reboot the series in September 2020, The Last Stand: Aftermath offers players a fresh take on the cult classic The Last Stand games, introducing exciting elements of tense roguelite gameplay while retaining the solemn apocalyptic atmosphere that resonated with fans of the original.
In the vicious world of The Last Stand: Aftermath, death is inevitable. It’s what we do with the time we have left that matters.
We’re excited to bring this new chapter in The Last Stand series to everyone. Moving into the roguelite genre and blending it with the long standing Last Stand zombie lore has been an amazing experience and one that we’re sure people will enjoy.
