Developer and publisher Survios has some fantastic news for all fans of the long-running The Walking Dead TV series, as a brand-new VR experience based on AMC’s fan-favourite show will be released in September.
Survios — the team behind Creed: Rise to Glory and Sprint Vector — has announced that The Walking Dead Onslaught is officially coming to PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, Valve Index, and HTC Vive on September 29th.
"The Walking Dead Onslaught is set shortly after the Savior War in an Alexandria devastated by the fighting, and struggling over its ideals," the studio said. "Players will step into the shoes of Daryl Dixon for an intense campaign mode, as he recounts a fateful encounter with a mysterious stranger. The game’s infinitely replayable Scavenger Mode allows players to embark on supply runs as Rick, Daryl, Michonne, and Carol, where they’ll encounter overwhelming hordes of walkers and collect resources to rebuild their community [...] and modify iconic weapons from the show, and unlock new quests."
Considering that Skydance Interactive's The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners — which was initially released in January — is one of the best-reviewed VR games of the year, let's hope The Walking Dead Onslaught is yet another successful title (loosly) based on the award-winning comic book series set in a zombiefied world.
