WHAT: Suit up knights! Schell Games announces the 1.0 release of its virtual reality (VR) sword fighting game Until You Fall™️on the Oculus Rift and Steam platforms. Today the critically and fan acclaimed game marks its official move out of Early Access on all of its platforms.

Players enter the world of Until You Fall as Rune Knights defending their homeland of Rokar against the dark, corrupted forces that have overtaken it. Moving expertly through each menacing, neon run, Rune Knights must strategically select which abilities to enhance or which weapons to strengthen in an effort to slay every adversary that steps in their path. Players should be prepared to fight, fall, and rise again stronger than ever before to save a world that once was. The beautifully designed gameplay of Until You Fall is paired with an energizing synthwave soundtrack to support hours of play.

The 1.0 version of Until You Fall on these PC platforms features improvements to enemy interactions, the game’s audio, and the tutorial. Additionally, saved data from Early Access gameplay can be transferred over through this update for both platforms. Other updates include audio, art, and tech performance optimizations; the addition of achievements; weapons and supers enhancements; general bug fixes; and improvements to movement tracking.

Until You Fall is available for $24.99 USD on Steam and the Oculus Rift store. Players who purchase the game through the Steam store will enjoy a week-long 20% discount. For those using the Oculus store, Until You Fall features cross-buy between the Quest and Rift. Schell Games launched the 1.0 version of the game on PlayStation®VR and Oculus Quest on September 29, 2020.

More information can be found on the official website and via the Until You Fall press kit.
