The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners Takes VR Zombie Slaying To New Orleans

It's called The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners. What's more, this zombie-chomping adventure will only be for VR for extra jump scares, though it's still not been confirmed what platforms the newest game set in the grisly world of Walking Dead will be on. As described in the press release, players will encounter iconic locations while trying to survive what remains. For those attending SDCC, Skydance Interactive and Skybound Entertainment will showcase the teaser art for The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners at the Harbor House Restaurant from 18th - 21st July.

Skydance Interactive, the team behind virtual reality shooter "Archangel: Hellfire", announced on Wednesday its next title will be "The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners", the first VR game set in "The Walking Dead" universe.

But those that aren't in attendance for the show aren't out of luck. In addition, a teaser and conference will be presented via a live Twitch stream on Thursday, July 19th, 2018, 12 pm PT/ 3 pm EST. Whether they will be friendly or not depends on the survivor, but what we do know is that walkers will apparently be the least of your problems.

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners joins other games such as Telltale's The Walking Dead: The Final Season, which launches over the next few weeks; and Overkill's The Walking Dead, a game that's likely to be a big hit when it launches on November 6. Hopefully we'll be seeing more glimpses of those games this week during San Diego Comic-Con. VR is young and many creators tap the technology for interesting promotional tie-ins, but I came away from that conversation believing a robust experience is in the works.
