The Walking Dead Onslaught

The Walking Dead Onslaught is out today on PlayStation VR for PS4, as well as Oculus Rift and Steam VR for PC.

The Walking Dead Onslaught comes from Survios, a industry-leading virtual reality studio known for the critically acclaimed hits Creed: Rise to Glory and Westworld Awakening. The all-new VR action shooter releases just days before The Walking Dead Special Event: The Whisperer War Final Showdown on Sunday, October 4 at 9/8c on AMC.

The game is compatible with the Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Rift S, and Gen 1 Windows Mixed Reality headsets. Survios previously said that the PS4 version is compatible with the next-gen PlayStation 5.

Story

According to Survios, The Walking Dead Onslaught is set shortly after the Savior War. Alexandria is devastated by fighting and struggling over its ideals. Here’s more on what to expect directly from the developer:

The Walking Dead Onslaught tells an untold story centered around Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus). Players will slash through walkers as they recount his fateful encounter with a mysterious stranger. The game’s replayable Scavenger Mode allows fans to embark on supply runs as Rick, Daryl, Michonne, and Carol, where they’ll confront overwhelming hordes of walkers and collect important resources to rebuild their community, upgrade and modify 24 iconic weapons from the show, find new survivors, and unlock quests.

Standard vs Digital Deluxe Editions

The Standard Edition retails for $29.99. It contains the base game that offers the complete The Walking Dead Onslaught experience. It features an original campaign story and a Scavenger Mode where players can unleash mayhem upon massive walker hordes.

The Digital Deluxe Edition retails for $39.99. It contains the base game and digital items for the most staunch The Walking Dead fans. You get the Iconic Weapons skins pack containing Lucille, Rick’s Mace, The Red Machete, and Tyreese’s Hammer, as well as the Alexandria Crafting Starter Kit and The Walking Dead Onslaught digital mini-soundtrack and art book.
