Survios Inc. and AMC have debuted a new trailer for the upcoming VR game The Walking Dead Onslaught which gives players a deeper look at the first-person world of zombie fighting to be seen in the upcoming title.
The Walking Dead Onslaught is set shortly after the Savior War in an Alexandria devastated by the fighting and struggling over its ideals. 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, upgrade and modify iconic weapons from the show, and unlock new quests.
Players can also pick up the Deluxe and Survivor Editions, as well as pre-order bonuses that include:
- Digital Deluxe Edition Includes: Iconic Show Weapons Pack: Lucille, Rick’s Mace, The Red Machete and Tyreese’s Hammer, Alexandria Crafting Starter Kit, The Walking Dead Onslaught Mini-Soundtrack and Art Book. Additionally, purchases via the PlayStation Store will also receive a special PS4 Theme and Avatar pack.
- Digital Pre-Order Bonuses: Exclusive Sheriff Rick and Hunter Daryl character skins, Gold Katana and Gold Knuckle Knife weapon skins, and a pre-purchase discount on participating platforms.
- Retail Editions: Retail Exclusive Deluxe Editions and a limited run Survivor Edition are available at Retail. The Survivor Edition will feature all in-game and Deluxe Edition content, an exclusive SteelBook, and 2 of 5 Collectable Postcards. Visit your local retailer for additional details and availability.
The Walking Dead Onslaught will release on PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift and Steam VR on September 29th, with physical releases for PlayStation VR releasing on October 2 in Europe and October 13th in North America.
The PlayStation 4 version will also be compatible with the next-gen PlayStation 5, which makes Onslaught the first PSVR game to be confirmed as backward compatible on PS5.
