The Walking Dead has been a popular franchise for years now. It all started with a comic book by author Robert Kirkman and has since blown up into a multimedia hit. With several television shows and movie spin-offs along with a slew of video game titles, you can’t escape this undead phenomenon. Now a new video game is in the works with Skybound Games and Skydance Interactive. The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is a brand new experience for VR enthusiasts, but platforms are still under wraps.
We knew that a VR game was coming but now we have a cinematic trailer for The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners. In this game, players will be taking on the role of a survivor in New Orleans, but the city is under mass chaos as humanity tries to clear out the swarm of zombies. From what we have seen so far, this game will heavily rely on players to use their judgment and decide on a variety of choices. You’ll decide on the groups to end up joining with and how to handle certain tense situations.
New Orleans is at war. The living is not just fighting the dead, but also inflicting pain and brutality upon each other. As bodies pile up between warring factions, whispers spread of a long-lost mystery in the city that could turn the tide of the war. Will you try to court favor with the factions, or play them against each other for personal gain? Can you unravel the mystery that is behind it all? The fate of the city and its survivors rests in your hands.
Currently, the game is slated to launch on January 23, 2020. Furthermore, we’re not entirely sure if this game will see a release on a wide variety of VR platforms, but it does look like it will at least make its way to the Oculus VR headset.
