The Walking Dead is one of the most successful entertainment franchises in recent years. For this reason, it is not strange to see that there are more and more adaptations of this universe to video games. The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is a new title by Skydance Interactive and Skybound Entertainment. What makes this take on the title striking is that the game will use virtual reality to offer an intense and immersive experience of the series.
Skydance released a new trailer showing the dangers and difficult decisions everyone must make in the world of The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners. The trailer follows part of the daily life of several citizens of New Orleans. Everything takes a sharp, sinister turn when the infected appear. The studio highlighted how each decision you make affects the course of the game and the future of your characters. In addition to facing the zombies, the city is rife with dangerous human factions, so surviving will not be a simple task.
New Orleans is at war. The living are 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.
The game will be immersive and offer great freedom to make choices. Added to this is a complete combat system, giving players the option to use a wide variety of weapons, including some craftable weapons that utilize scavenged materials.
The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners will release on January 23, 2020 on the Oculus Rift. Below you can watch the new cinematic trailer for The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners.
