In the aftermath of a comet hitting Earth, vampires rule the world with a bloodthirsty vengeance in Skybound Entertainment and Anonymous Content's new audio drama Impact Winter. Created by Travis Beacham, Impact Winter is now streaming on Audible, and we have the complete release details and official trailer for the post-apocalyptic vampire tale:
Press Release: NEWARK, N.J. – Audible Inc., the leading creator and provider of premium audio storytelling, multiplatform content company Skybound Entertainment, and visionary and disruptive media company Anonymous Content today announced the cast and premiere date of the epic post-apocalyptic drama, Impact Winter, debuting exclusively on Audible on February 17.

More than a decade after a comet strike has inflicted an “impact winter” and blacked out the sun, vampires have emerged in the darkness to take over what remains of the world. Humans have fled underground, clinging to an existence that feels increasingly doomed. One vampire hunter, a young woman named Darcy, is lured from her bunker beneath an ancient castle by a powerful vampire overlord and thrust into a fight for her people’s future. From Travis Beacham, the mind behind Carnival Row and Pacific Rim, this action, romance, coming-of-age story delivers an unprecedented sonic experience via binaural action sequences, original music and incomparable sound design, all of which come together to bring to life this post-apocalyptic world in visceral detail.
