Ever want to experience a living dead apocalypse without the risk of becoming a flesh eater? You'll soon have your chance. Bringing the world of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead to life in virtual reality, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is now available to pre-order ahead of its January 23rd release for Oculus Rift, Rift S, Quest (through the Link cable), and HTC Vive (ahead of its release on PlayStation VR and Oculus Quest later in 2020). To celebrate the upcoming release, a new behind-the-scenes video for Saints & Sinners has been unveiled, in which the development team talks about the game's attention to detail when it comes to surviving not only walkers, but realistic aspects such as hunger.

You can watch the new behind-the-scenes video below, and to learn more, check out our previous coverage and visit the game's official website.

"In The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, freedom of choice and visceral combat offer players a new way to live survival horror in a deep-rooted VR gaming experience. Scale buildings to ambush enemies from above, hold down a walker’s head to rip a knife out of its skull or attack from a distance with throwing weapons, bows and long-range firearms. Players can choose from an arsenal of weapons or craft their own to fit their play style and survive their way. Physics-based combat makes every swing of an axe or jab of a knife resonate with impact.

Choices in The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners will affect not just how the combat plays out but the fate of the city and its other survivors. New Orleans is at war and the living are not just fending off the dead, but each other as well. As players dive deeper into this unforgiving journey they will uncover the mystery at the heart of the conflict that threatens to tear the city apart.
