While The Walking Dead comics have ended alongside the Telltale created series, the franchise as a whole is far from dead. In fact, a new chapter seems to be dawning on Robert Kirkman’s mega popular zombie series. New releases are happening as the TV show enters a new phase and reinvents itself in a number of ways. And that trend continued today with the release of the first trailer and info for The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners which will arrive on VR platforms on January 23, 2020.
“In The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, freedom of choice and visceral combat offer players a new way to live survival horror in a deep-rooted VR gaming experience,” reads the announcement. “Scale buildings to ambush enemies from above, hold down a walker’s head to rip a knife out of its skull or attack from a distance with throwing weapons, bows and long-range firearms. Players can choose from an arsenal of weapons or craft their own to fit their play style and survive their way. Physics-based combat makes every swing of an axe or jab of a knife resonate with impact.”
The game takes place well after the initial outbreak that led to the events depicted across the series. Set in a zombie infested New Orleans, players will make key choices throughout the adventure that impact both the story and the gameplay. Players will have to fight to survive as they trek toward a potential cache of supplies that could be the difference between life and death.
This certainly sounds like a great addition to both VR gaming and The Walking Dead series, but we’ll have to wait till we see more to be sure. Until then you can check out the cinematic trailer below to get a sense of what the gameplay will be like. Visceral seems to be the focus, as described above and as seen in the trailer. You can also read more about and follow the game at the official website.
