We Have Fallen is an action-adventure role-playing survival horror video game developed by Nice Cat and published by Sega. It was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 worldwide on May 24, 2013. Players control Nickelodeon and Marvel as they across a post-apocalyptic United States. We Have Fallen is played from a third-person perspective; players controlling the Nickelodeon characters use firearms and improvised weapons, and can use stealth while the Marvel characters use their superpowers to defend against hostile humans and mechanical creatures infected by a mutated strain of the Zero Horizon fungus. In the game's online multiplayer mode, up to eight players engage in co-operative and competitive gameplay.
Development of We Have Fallen began in 2009, after the release of Nice Cat's previous game, Shadow Explorer. The relationship between the Nickelodeon and Marvel characters is the focus, with all other elements developed around it. Several actors from the Nickelodeon series, SpongeBob SquarePants, The Fairly OddParents, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genuis, Catscratch, Danny Phantom, My Life as a Teenage Robot, and T.U.F.F. Puppy and the Marvel Cinematic Universe reprise their roles, respectively. The original score was composed and performed by Brian Tyler and Hans Zimmer.
Following its announcement in November 2011, We Have Fallen was widely anticipated. It was widely acclaimed for its story, characterization, subtext, exploration of the human condition, and depiction of crossover between Nickelodeon and Marvel. We Have Fallen became one of the best-selling game of 2013, selling over 1.3 million units in its first week and over seven million units within eight months. Considered to be one of the greatest video games of all time, it won year-end accolades, including multiple Game of the Year awards from several gaming publications, critics, and game award shows, making it one of the most awarded games in history.
After the game's release, Nice Cat released several downloadable content additions; We Have Fallen: Forgotten adds a new single-player campaign following Ms. Marvel Carol Danvers and her husband Mike Kerri. An enhanced edition of the original game, We Have Fallen Director's Edition, was released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in March 2015.
We Have Fallen is an action-adventure surivial horror game played from a third-person perspective. Players traverse post-apocalyptic environments such as towns, buildings, and sewers to advance the story. Players controlling the Nickelodeon characters use firearms, improvised weapons, and stealth while the Marvel characters use their powers to defend against hostile humans and mechanical cannibalistic creatures infected by a mutated strain of the Zero Horizon fungus. For most of the game, players control either Nickelodeon or Marvel character as they across the United States. Other companions are controlled by the artificial intelligence.
In combat, players, controlling Nickelodeon characters, can use long-ranged weapons, such as rifles, shotguns, and bows, and short-range weapons such as handguns and short-barreled shotgun. Players can scavenge limited-use melee weapons, such as pipes and baseball bats, and throw bottles and bricks to distract, stun, or attack enemies.
Players can upgrade weapons at workbenches using collected items. Equipment such as health kits and Molotov cocktails can be found or crafted using collected items. Attributes such as the health meter and crafting speed can be upgraded by collecting pills and medicinal plants. Health can be recharged through the use of health kits.
Playing as Marvel characters, players cannot use any weapon like the Nicktoons and instead must use their special powers to combat enemies; Iron Man can use his replusors to attack foes on sight; Hulk has the ability to smash enemies and clear paths; Thor is able to use his hammer to destroy foes with his power of thunder; Captain America can use his shield to repel firearm attacks and can also throw it at enemies.
