Fight your fears head-on in The Walking Dead Onslaught as you assume the roles of their favorite survivors from the TV series, struggling against the relentless walker threat while confronting both the horrors and humanity of this apocalyptic world.

There’s no rest when survival is on the line. Prepare to plunge into the terrifying, genre-defying world of The Walking Dead--but can you survive the relentless walker threat?

The Walking Dead Onslaught gives you the chance to play as a survivor and to experience two different sides of the walker apocalypse: a wrenching narrative original to the game and classic supply runs with randomized weapon and item pickups. And once you’ve ventured out into the unpredictable wilderness, you’ll be taking out walkers with melee and gun attacks like you’ve never seen before in VR. Survios’s new, multilayered Progressive Dismemberment System, puts you so close to the visceral horrors of the walker threat that you can feel it. It’s also been described as being immensely satisfying…make of that what you will.

With an exclusive original story, visceral real-motion melee and ranged combat, player progression and a full campaign mode, AMC and Survios deliver the most immersive “The Walking Dead” experience yet.

“Not only is The Walking Dead Onslaught a dream opportunity for the megafans in the studio, but we’ve had the unique challenge to further evolve VR with our ‘progressive dismemberment’ technology,” said Survios head of studio Mike McTyre. “This is a standalone game experience that is carried by one of the most beloved TV IPs in the world. AMC has been an incredible partner throughout the process, encouraging us to push VR combat and immersion to match those iconic, heart-pounding moments that can only be experienced within the world of The Walking Dead.”

The Walking Dead Onslaught is the immersive VR experience fans have been waiting for,” said Yoel Flohr, EVP of Digital and Franchise Development at AMC. “We’re thrilled to be working with Survios, an industry leader in world-class visuals and innovative gameplay, to give players the chance to experience first-hand the terror and thrill of The Walking Dead’s apocalyptic world.”

Key Features:

  • Visceral Real-Motion Combat: Onslaught introduces the most visceral combat experience that veteran VR-studio Survios has built to date. Scavenge and wield an arsenal of iconic melee and ranged weapons using real-motion VR mechanics - and experience the variety of their graphic end results.
  • Progressive Dismemberment System: We are progressing VR with interactions between you and an object, offering a variety of end results through multiple thresholds. It’s the most visceral combat experience that Survios has built to date.
    • Delimbing: Walker limbs are vulnerable for removal at many joints, including arms, legs and neck
    • Carving: Proprietary “gore mesh” creates realistic wounds anywhere on a walker’s body
    • Impaling: enemies get impaled and react where they are stabbed
    • Context-based physics: varying reactions take place based on context; precise slicing through enemies result in getting stuck, resistance when pulling out weapons and grappling (a challenging technique in VR)
  • Melle Restraint System:
    • Walkers can also be grabbed and restrained for precision melee attacks and strategic defense
    • Walkers can also be pushed and thrown at other walkers

The Walking Dead Onslaught is coming to PC (HTC Vive or Oculus Rift) in Fall 2019.
