The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners Cinematic Trailer Conveys the Trials and Tribulations of the Apocalypse

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners cinematic trailer is a moving look at a city gone mad after the Walker outbreak takes hold.

Skydance Interactive released a brand new trailer for their upcoming VR title The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners. The trailer, despite being two and a half minutes, perfectly conveys the moral choices that players will encounter. Not to mention the ever present theme of The Waking Dead universe: humans are often a worse threat than the Walkers themselves:

What the trailer also conveys is that sense of loss and innocence, as we witness the young woman transformation from happy and carefree to hardened survivalist through the transferring of the backpack.

In The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, freedom of choice and 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. Will players risk life and limb to protect those in need or eliminate anyone who stands in their way? Will they join one of the warring factions, or play them against each other for personal gain?

As players dive deeper into this journey they will uncover the mystery at the heart of the conflict that threatens to tear the city apart. The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners will launch on January 23, 2020 for Oculus Rift.
