Post-apocalyptic games might be a dime a dozen, but that doesn’t stop this first trailer for Aftermath from looking incredible.
I’m not entirely sure what’s going on in this trailer, nor what kind of gameplay we’re looking at here, but I’m all in on Aftermath with this trailer:
Described as “psychological survival thriller” it looks like Aftermath will have you using a combination of stealth and scavenging to navigate through the world. Combine that with the Sci-Fi aesthetic and I’m definitely ready to see more.
Charlie Gray was at the top of the world. A talented engineer and European astronaut, her career had brought her to where most people could only dream of; but following a reentry to earth gone wrong, and the traumatic events that ensued, Charlie returns a broken spirit. With her life spiralling into darker and darker places, Charlie now finds herself Isolated in a deserted, defragmented world. The only thing she knows is that she has to find the one thing that still matters: Sammy.
Analyze your surroundings and utilise the urban resources at your disposal. Mundane, everyday items can become an invaluable tool in your fight against the enigmatic beings that now occupy the city. Study alien weaknesses and find the best approach to take down those that might want to use you as an offering.
Aftermath is slated to hit PC, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
