If you were sitting around wondering when we would be getting another video game set in the universe of The Walking Dead, wonder no more. We are here with yet another entry for the franchise and this one is coming in from Survios and heading to a VR setting instead of the myriad of other styles we have already had. Here we go with the announcement for The Walking Dead Onslaught. That would be the name and it is currently aiming for a Fall release for the Oculus and HTC Vive if you have them and a PC to run it. You can start with all of the happy dancing and joy now. At least if you were waiting for another game in the franchise to come.
Outside of the following announcement trailer for The Walking Dead Onslaught, little else is known. More so when you look at the following as non-gameplay and just a concept of what is coming. It is worth noting that it will place us directly in the middle of the TV version of The Walking Dead and have us playing as the characters in the VR setting. All with a new story to take in and a dismemberment system mixed in. I doubt it will be to the level of Dead Space, but it is worth noting. More so when you know that we will be doing it with our own motions and actions in the real world and translated into the virtual. Have a look at the announcement now.
