Today at San Diego Comic-Con, Skydance Interactive unveiled The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, a VR title set in The Walking Dead universe. It is being developed in partnership with Skybound Entertainment, founded by Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead.
Set in the flooded remains of New Orleans, the game will challenge players to make their way through the iconic quarters, as they explore what has become a brutal, unforgiving wasteland. Players will have to deal with others struggling to survive in what remains of this once vibrant city. In the world of The Walking Dead, the walkers are the least of your problems. Will you choose the path of a saint, or that of a sinner? You have watched and played in the world of The Walking Dead, now, get ready to Live it.
At San Diego Comic-Con, Skydance Interactive will showcase The Walking Dead: Saint & Sinner’s teaser art at the Harbor House Restaurant from July 18th to July 21st in addition with other art and panels for The Walking Dead fans. In addition, Skybound Entertainment will be having a livestream for The Walking Dead on Thursday, July 19th, at 12PM PT and on Saturday July 21st, at 4PM PT.
This isn’t the first VR title from Skydance Interactive. Earlier this year, Archangel: Hellfire was released, bringing giant robot piloting to VR. The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners will be released in 2019.
