Culver City, Calif — August 13, 2020 — Survios Inc. and AMC revealed today in a brand-new gameplay trailer that their upcoming virtual reality action game, The Walking Dead Onslaught, will release September 29, 2020 on PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, and Steam VR. Following the game’s digital launch, there will also be PlayStation VR physical editions from Perp Games available on October 2nd (Europe) and October 13th (North America). The Walking Dead Onslaught’s PlayStation 4 version will also be compatible with the next-gen PlayStation 5. The VR game release is just days before the much-anticipated Season 10 Finale of The Walking Dead, premiering Sunday, October 4th on AMC.

The Walking Dead Onslaught is set shortly after the Savior War in an Alexandria devastated by the fighting, and struggling over its ideals. Players will step into the shoes of Daryl Dixon for an intense campaign mode, as he recounts a fateful encounter with a mysterious stranger. The game’s infinitely replayable Scavenger Mode allows players to embark on supply runs as Rick, Daryl, Michonne, and Carol, where they’ll encounter overwhelming hordes of walkers and collect resources to rebuild their community, upgrade and modify iconic weapons from the show, and unlock new quests.

The official gameplay trailer can be found here. Additional assets, including art and logos can be found here.
