Now that Archangel: Hellfire is out (and is pretty good!), developer Skydance Interactive is ready to announce its next VR project: The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners
We actually reported that Skydance had partnered with the company behind the massive zombie franchise, Skybound, last year, but the game was officially revealed for the first time at Comic-Con today. Saints & Sinners is set in New Orleans and will have players surviving the zombie apocalypse first-hand. While you can be sure there’ll be plenty of zombie-slaying action, Skydance also wants you to make tough moral choices in the game, hence the name.
Compatible headsets haven’t yet been announced. In fact, all we have at this time is some teaser art, which suggests we’ll be burying our axes deep into some zombie necks. Lovely.
This actually isn’t the first VR experience based on The Walking Dead out there. Starbreeze has an arcade-style experience for its StarVR headset, for example, and we’ve also recently been spending some time with the series’ first foray into VR in The Walking Dead: Our World. This is the first full Walking Dead VR game we’ll be able to take home to play in our headsets, though.
Look for Saints & Sinners to release some time in 2019.
