Skybound Entertainment and Skydance Interactive released a trailer for the upcoming game “The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners.” Scheduled for release Jan. 23 for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift or Valve Index, the game is set in New Orleans three years after the Zombie outbreak.
The city is now flooded and surrounded by a herd of walkers, making escape near-impossible. The city is divided into districts accessible only by skiff and controlled by a community known as “The Tower.”
With dwindling supplies, the Tower’s grip on the city is threatened when a brutal group called “The Reclaimed” rises against them. Anyone not in a faction must fend for themselves.
Rumors suggest that a Cold War-era bunker exists, loaded with years’ worth of food, medical supplies, and weapons. A race to find this hidden reserve begins, and with it, a bloody battle for power.
Players control their own destiny in the game as they fight the undead and scavenge through the flooded ruins of New Orleans.
You must learn how to endure in your own way. Will you sneak around the ruined streets and creole mansions, scavenging all you can? Will you risk life and limb to protect those in need or will you gun down anyone who stands in your way and become known for your brutality among the survivors? Will you try to work with the factions, or play them against each other for personal gain?
Here’s a 15 second gameplay teaser for “The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners.” It’s not much, but maybe it’s enough to whet your appetite.
