We Have Fallen is an action-adventure role-playing survival horror video game developed by and published by Sega. It was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 worldwide on May 24, 2013. Players control Marvel and DC as they across a post-apocalyptic Galaxy. 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, Thanos' minions and cannibalistic 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, Treasure Explorer. The relationship between the Marvel and DC characters is the focus, with all other elements developed around it. 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 received widespread acclaim for its story, characterization, score, subtext, and depiction of crossover between Marvel and DC. 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, Ant-Man Scott Lang Ms. Marvel Carol Danvers and Wasp. An enhanced edition of the original game, We Have Fallen Remastered, was released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in March 2015. A sequel, We Have Fallen Part 2, was announced in December 2016.

Sequel

Main article: We Have Fallen Part 2

In January 2014, Gard said the possibility of a sequel was "about 50/50", and the team needed to find a story "really worth telling, and that's not repeating itself".

At the PlayStation Experience event on December 3, 2016, We Have Fallen Part 2 was announced to be in early development.[44][45]

Gard will return to write the story. Johnson and Favreau will not return as game directors. The score will be composed by Henry Jackman with Steve Jablonsky and Alan Silvestri, replacing Brian Tyler and Hans Zimmer.
