For those just now diving in, here are the features we think you'll like the most when going all-in.
5 Awesome Things About The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners VR Game
There is a lot to do in this game but one thing that people might not realise is how much of a sandbox title Saints & Sinners truly is. Players in Saints & Sinners will find themselves in the heart of New Orleans fighting for their lives against hordes of the undead. Saints & Sinners offers a lot of freedom when walking around and exploring and so much of the game is interactable, making this VR experience even more realistic that some might normally assume.
Make good choices, sweetie
Like many horror adventures, what you choose matters but that doesn't mean that those choices will lead to happy endings. Remember, this is the apocalypse, which means happiness is a fleeting thing. With Saints & Sinners, players will be able to approach this game like many other survival titles in its class, which means you'll get out of it what you put in. Between choosing which faction to pledge loyalty to (Reclaimed ftw) and running secret missions towards the bigger story, players will have the opportunity to align themselves with the power in-game but what if that power isn't the force of good they claim?
There's a reason why quite a few reviews out there speak to the brutality of this game and liken it to that of Mortal Kombat. The execution-style blows and animations are wildly addictive, making combat intrinsically satisfying. This embellished mechanic style also makes the desire to craft special weapon types even higher, encouraging those trying to survive to really explore the various ways to improve that arsenal over at their base camp.
Be in the moment
Saints & Sinners is a VR game and while not all VR titles are created equal, Skydance really hit the nail on the head with this Walking Dead adventure. The VR setup is very smooth, which makes wondering dark alleys and sneaking up on foes much more realistic than it would have been as a standard gameplay experience. The Virtual Reality aspect is truly what takes this horror experience to the next level, so take a moment and just explore and appreciate your surroundings - even if those surroundings are trying to actively kill you.
Craft harder, boy
As a survival game, you can craft to your heart's content. Take a plethora of objects to make some pretty intimidating weaponry, loot everything for more supplies, and make sure that base camp is fully stocked and ready to rock 'n roll. As previously mentioned, Saints & Sinners is very much a title that you get what you put in. Put in the bare-minimum effort and you're gonna have a bad time, but take a moment to appreciate the many layers of S&S and you'll be in for a special treat sure to make any Walking Dead fan salivate in excitement.
