It is finally here thanks to E3, we have the first gameplay for The Walking Dead Onslaught. You know, the VR title that Survios announced a little bit before the event to get us all worked up and then held until an event out here. All set in the TV version of The Walking Dead universe and not the comics. The VR game that also aims to let us play as some of the iconic characters from the show in their own little stories. Even if you were not up to speed on it all, you should be now as we have only had that information before now. Now we have the first pre-alpha gameplay for the experience to take in and start the judging process.
Not too surprising, it looks like a standard melee and firearm experience in VR with the draping of The Walking Dead over it. It would have been a bit off to expect something different as it is a bit fitting for the franchise to go down that path. We also need to remember that this is all and an early look at it when it comes to the visuals and animation, but here we go with the first gameplay for The Walking Dead Onslaught. It looks like it will be stabbing and shooting with no worry about being bitten. An odd choice to go with given the source, but video games have to video game, I guess. How else would they do it unless they wanted to go down a permadeath path for the game loop?
