Ashfall is an MMORPG third-person shooter coming to PC and mobile devices from NetEase Games.
The game is set in a post-apocalypse world, but it is set in the eastern regions of the world rather than the western or southern territories. Players take the role of Wanderers, who leave the comfort of the vault to go out into dangerous lands in search of the core of creation.
Wait, isn't this just Fallout?
Legendary Star Studio's devs are apparently avid Fallout enthusiasts, so much so that for Ashfall's soundtrack they hired Inon Zor, the composer of Bethesda's Fallout series, alongside Hollywood musicians Hans Zimmer and Steve Mazzaro.
Ashfall differs in that it is set on an Eastern land, something you usually associate with the post-apocalypse narrative. The neon signs in Chinese seen on a decaying structure covered in sand, seen in the gameplay footage, are a rare sight.
Ashfall, a name used by former PlayStation developers, has gotten a lot of attention. Liithos, which was founded by ex-PlayStation designers, has previously announced a PvPvE game named Ashfall, and has claimed to pitch the game to NetEase.
Ashfall, the sequel to Legendary Star Studio, is now available on Steam and will be available on iOS and Android sometime in 2023.
