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 June 2014. A sequel, We Have Fallen Part 2, was announced in December 2016.
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, Thanos' minions and 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.
The online multiplayer allows up to eight players to engage in competitive gameplay in recreations of multiple single-player settings. The game features three multiplayer game types: Supply Raid and Survivors are both team deathmatches, with the latter excluding the ability to respawn; Interrogation features teams investigating the location of the enemy team's lockbox, and the first to capture such lockbox wins.

In September 2015, the Avengers battle giant mad titan Thanos (Damion Poitier) to prevent him from unleashing chaos around the world with the power of the Infinity Stones. However, Thanos overpowers the Avengers and launches an outbreak of a mutant Zero Horizon fungus which ravages numerous planets, transforming its hosts into cannibalistic monsters known as infected. In Bikini Bottom, SpongeBob SquarePants (Tom Kenny) flees the chaos with his best friend Patrick Star (Bill Fagerbarke) and pet snail Gary (Kenny). As they flee, Gary is shot by a minion of Thanos and dies in SpongeBob's arms. In the ten years that follow, most of civilization is destroyed by Thanos' infection. Survivors live in heavily policed quarantine zones, independent settlements, and nomadic groups. SpongeBob and Patrick work as smugglers with Sandy Cheeks (Carolyn Lawrence), Mr. Eugene Krabs (Clancy Brown), and Squidward Tentacles (Roger Bumpass) in the Ukelele Bottom, quarantine zone. They hunt down Alex (Craig Robert Young), a black market dealer, to recover a stolen weapons cache. However, Alex reveals he traded the cache with the Avengers and Sandy kills him.
On the planet Halesky, the Guardians of the Galaxy arrive at a space station under siege by Thanos' goons. Once they rescue the hostages, a sworm of infected attack, but the Guardians escape in time as Rocket blows up the space station. Back on Earth, SpongeBob and his friends meet former billionaire weapons genus Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.), who is known as Iron Man. They later meet up with the rest of the Avengers; Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans), Bruce Banner/Hulk (Edward Norton), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Natalie Romanoff/Black Widow (Taylor Cole), and Clint Barton/Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). Stark, promises to double their cache in return for smuggling Ant-Man/Scott Lang (Anton Yelchin), and Carol Danvers (Amanda Seyfried) to his old home in Malibu, California. SpongeBob, and Patrick take Lang, and Danvers. They sneak out in the night, but after an encounter with a patrol, they discover Lang and Danvers are infected. Full infection normally occurs in under two days, but both Lang and Danvers claim they were infected three weeks ago and that their immunity may lead to a cure in destroying Thanos' infection. Realizing that they need all the help they can get, the four travel to Dimmsdale to recruit Timmy Turner (Tara Strong), Retroville for Jimmy Neutron (Debi Derryberry), Petropolis for Dudley Puppy (Jerry Trainor) and Kitty Katswell (Grey DeLisle), and Tremorton for Jenny Wakeman/XJ-9 (Janice Kawaye).
The trio make their way to their destination through hordes of infected, but find that Stark's lab had been raided. Sandy, Mr. Krabs, and Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) reveal that they had been bitten by an infected; believing in Lang's importance, Sandy, Mr. Krabs, and Pepper sacrifice themself against pursuing soldiers so SpongeBob and the others can escape. Thor suggests they find the Guardians of the Galaxy, believing they might know some people who are looking for a cure. With Neutron's help, they acquire a working space ship. They arrive on Planet Xbiotz, a planet located in the far sector of the milt galaxy. Driving into a city called Maxtrust, The Avengers and Nicktoons are ambushed by bandits and their vehicle is wrecked.
Acquiring another ship, the united forces arrive on Planet Mosmo. Stark and the team shelter in the planet's mountains. Loki (Tom Hiddelston) is bitten by an infected, but hides it from the group. As his infection takes hold, Loki attacks Natalie, but Thor kills him.
The forces finally find The Guardians of the Galaxy on Planet Tarah in Kylos where they have assembled a fortified settlement near a hydroelectric dam, who inform them that a group of Extra-Terrestrial beings dubbed the "Dragonflies" are looking for a cure. SpongeBob contemplates leaving Lang and the Avengers with Quill, but after Lang confronts him about Gary, he decides to stay with the Avengers. The Guardians direct them to a Dragonflies enclave at the University of Western Kylos. They find the university abandoned, but learn that the Dragonflies have moved to a hospital on Xandar. Afterward, SpongeBob is severely wounded by bandits and Thanos' minions, who are killed by Lang and the others.
Finally reaching Xandar, The team takes shelter in Mano. SpongeBob is on the verge of death, and Patrick, Clint, and Natalie, must be relied on to care for him. Hunting for food, Natalie encounters John (Robert Gant) and Davis (Travis Willingham), scavengers willing to trade medicine for food; John turns hostile after revealing the university bandits were part of his group. Natalie manages to lead John's group away from SpongeBob and the others, but is eventually captured; John intends to recruit her into his cannibal group. Refusing the offer, she escapes after killing Davis, but John corners her in a burning diner. Meanwhile, SpongeBob recovers from his wounds and sets out to find Natalie, Patrick, and Clint. He, Patrick, and Clint reach Natalie as she kills John; they consoles her before they flee.
Stark and the group are ambushed by Thanos' goons, but they are able to escape. The group finally reach Xandar and are capture by a Dragonfly unit. In the hospital, A girl named Arias tells SpongeBob and Patrick that Scoot is being prepared for surgery: in hope of producing a vaccine for the infection, the Dragonflies must remove the infected portion of Scott's brain, which will kill him. As the Avengers and the other Nicktoons soon find themselves being locked up, the Dragnflies are revealed to be goons working for Thanos, who plains to re-work the fungus to obey his command. Realising they were betrayed and not willing to let Scott die, SpongeBob and Patrick rescue their new friends, and battle their way to the operating room and Patrick carries the unconscious Scott to the parking garage. They are confronted by Arias, who SpongeBob shoots and kills to prevent the Dragonflies from pursuing them. On the drive out of the city, SpongeBob claims that the Dragonflies were not you they claimed to be and that they were using the two forces to get to Scott. As the Avengers and Nicktoons return to Earth, Scott reveals that he was not alone when he was infected and expresses his survivor guilt. At his insistence, SpongeBob swears his story about the Dragonflies is true and they will stick together until they find a cure.

- Main article: Development of We Have Fallen
Nice Cat began developing We Have Fallen in 2009, following the release of Treasure Explorer. For the second time in the company's history, Nice Cat split into two teams; while one team developed Into the Treasure Explorer (2011), the other began work on We Have Fallen. Film directors Joe Johnson and Jon Favreau were hired to lead the team responsible for developing We Have Fallen.
Creative director Toby Gard views We Have Fallen as a life's end story where two fractions unite as one. A major motif of the game is that "life doesn't end, it only goes on"; this is presented in a scene in which SpongeBob, Patrick, Hawkeye and Black Widow discover a herd of giraffes, which concept artist Zach Sween explained was designed to "reignite [Black Widow's] lust for life", after her suffering following her encounter with John.
The relationship between the Nickelodeon characters and Marvel characters was the central focus of the game; all other elements were 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 reprised their roles, respectively.
Film director and writer Bryan Singer, former Kojima Productions employee Shuyo Murata, and Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami were hired to help write the story. Murata saw the opportunity to work on an adventure story mixed with with heartbreak and survival.
Musicians Brian Tyler and Hans Zimmer composed and performed the score for We Have Fallen.
We Have Fallen features an original score composed primarily by Brian Tyler and Hans Zimmer along with compositions by Matthew Harper. Tyler and Zimmer were contacted early in development. They used various instruments to compose the score, including some that they were unfamiliar with, giving a sense of danger and innocence.
The team created a new engine to satisfy their needs for the game. The artificial intelligence was created to coordinate with players; the addition of non-playable Nickelodeon and Marvel characters as artificial intelligence was a major contributor to the engine. The lighting engine was also re-created to incorporate soft light, in which the sunlight seeps in through spaces and reflects off surfaces. The gameplay introduced difficulty to the team, as they felt that every mechanic required thorough analysis. The game's user interface design also underwent various iterations throughout development.
We Have Fallen was announced on November 15, 2011. The full game was presented on December 10, 2011 at the Spike Video Game Awards, alongside its debut trailer and an official press release acknowledging some of the game's features. The announcement ignited widespread anticipation within the gaming industry, which journalists owed to Nice Cat's reputation. The game missed its original projected release date of April 17, 2013, and was pushed to May 24, 2013 worldwide for further polishing. To promote pre-order sales, Nice Cat collaborated with several retailers to provide special editions of the game with extra content.
Downloadable Content Edit
Downloadable content (DLC) for the game was released following its launch. The game's Season Pass includes access to all DLC, as well as some additional abilities, and the documentary Defeated: Making We Have Fallen; the documentary was released online in January 2014. Two DLC packs were included with some of the game's special editions and were available upon release.
We Have Fallen: Forgotten adds a single-player campaign which serves as a prequel to the main storyline, featuring Ant-Man Scott Lang, Ms. Marvel Carol Danvers and Wasp. It was released on January 24, 2014 as DLC.

The game's visual features were commended by many reviewers. The art design was lauded as "outstanding" by Computer and Video Games' Kelly, and "jaw-dropping" by Eurogamer's Welsh. Mc Shea of GameSpot identified the visual representation of the post-apocalyptic world was "mundane", having been portrayed various times previously.

Many critics discussed the game's depiction of female characters. Jason Killingsworth of Edge praised its lack of sexualized female characters, writing that it "offers a refreshing antidote to the sexism and regressive gender attitudes of most blockbuster video games".
We Have Fallen received praise from other studios, and figureheads in the gaming industry. Cliff Bleszinsk, creator of the Gears of War series, posted on Twitter, congratulating Toby Gard and Nice Cat "an outstanding success with #WeHaveFallen".
