The new season of The Walking Dead from the mind of Robert Kirkman is now underway, with a renewed buzz for the zombie-apocalypse universe in the air. It is, therefore, the perfect time for developer Skydance Interactive to announce The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners in its first cinematic trailer (view at the bottom of this article). Unfortunately for those who don’t own a VR device, the only platform announced so far for the game is the Oculus Rift.
That doesn’t mean that The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners doesn’t sound awesome. The game takes place in New Orleans as the zombie outbreak starts off and it will release on 23 January 2020. The game is being boasted as being “unlike any other in The Walking Dead universe” and where players will be able to “Live The Walking Dead’s dark drama” in their own skin with an emphasis on player choice.

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 favour 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.[/perfectpullquote]
The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners will feature exploration, freedom of choice for the player, crafting, visceral combat and a deep, 15+ hour experience built from the ground up for VR devices. Skydance Interactive has also said that the game will be coming to other headsets, but so far, only the Oculus Rift has been confirmed.
