Developed in partnership with Skybound Entertainment, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners has been praised by critics for its deep crafting system and visceral, physics-based combat system and became a global top seller upon its release for PC VR and PSVR earlier this year. At launch, Quest players will have access to the highly praised 15-hour campaign, an original story set in The Walking Dead universe where they must fight their way through walker-infested streets of New Orleans and negotiate with the factions vying for power throughout the city. The Meatgrinder Update, which challenges players to survive relentless waves of walkers, will arrive on the Quest Platform in the weeks following launch.
Starting today, players can pre-order The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners on the Oculus Quest Platform for $39.99 on the Oculus Store.
