It’s been nearly three months since Skydance Interactive announced The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners - Chapter 2: Retribution—a completely standalone sequel to the blockbuster original. And today, they gave zombiephiles a taste of the gore in store during the Meta Quest Gaming Showcase with their first gameplay footage reveal.
Millions of players have carved their way through a post-apocalyptic New Orleans since The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners launched in 2020—but your tour isn’t over just yet. In Chapter 2: Retribution, the bill has come due on your past actions. There’s a seemingly unstoppable new threat out for blood, and the authoritarian Tower has you in its crosshairs. With new faces, new places, and a whole new set of weapons and gear, your actions and choices will once again determine what becomes of New Orleans.
While resources are fewer and farther between, you can expect more action, walkers, and human stories to drive the tension home. You’ll need to scavenge to survive, finding and crafting new weapons to take on threats. And thanks to complex physics and feedback, you’ll feel each swing of an ax, the rumble of gunfire during a fight, and the desperate struggle as you throw walkers off of you.
Look for The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners - Chapter 2: Retribution to hit the Quest Platform in late 2022.
