Even though the devices of virtual reality have not managed to position themselves well in the market, it is a reality that the video game sector has produced the best results, specifically for PlayStation VR, a platform that many consider as the path that technology should take in terms of entertainment. There is no denying that this type of experience lends itself to taking horror to the next level of immersion and today PS VR users received a great surprise with the title of The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners.
Today Skybound and Skydance Interactive surprisingly announced the release of The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners for PlayStation VR after debuting on PC and earning good ratings. This title takes place in Crescent City, New Orleans, where there is a reserve that has survived the zombie nightmare but is close to collapse due to internal tensions.
There you will take the role of a character named Tourist, who will have to deal with the problems of the survivors and the threatening presence of the walkers. According to the development team, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners stands out for using physics to provide greater immersion. An example of this is that if you attack a zombie with a knife, you must make the movement with a force so that the weapon can harm it and the same will be able to finish it.
“The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners features groundbreaking physics-based VR combat that’s been optimized for PS VR. Burying your shiv into the skull of an unsuspecting walker means you’ll have to use real force to yank it back out again. Each weapon has been finely tuned to feel uniquely weighty and deadly. This level of physical detail was crucial in order to ground you in our dire post-apocalyptic world of New Orleans,” can be read from the official PlayStation blog.
In this sense, the developers pointed out that the objective is to represent a virtual environment with an extreme situation and put the player at the center of the nightmare.
The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is available on PlayStation Store and its standard version costs $39.99 /£28.99and the Tourist Edition is priced at £44.99.
