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.

Players will fight as Rick, Daryl, Michonne, and Carol to gather needed resources to rebuild the settlement, restore society, and prepare for an onslaught of walker-slaying mayhem.

The Walking Dead Onslaught is coming to Playstation VR, and PC (Steam Vr, HTC Vive or Oculus Rift) on September 29, 2020 for $29.99.

The Walking Dead Onslaught’s PS4 version will also be compatible with the next-gen PS5.

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).

Survios also announced Deluxe and Survivor Editions for The Walking Dead Onslaught, as well as pre-order bonuses:

  • Digital Deluxe Edition ($39.99): Includes Iconic Show Weapons Pack: Lucille, Rick’s Mace, The Red Machete and Tyreese’s Hammer, Alexandria Crafting Starter Kit, The Walking Dead Onslaught Mini-Soundtrack and Art Book. Additionally, purchases via the PlayStation Store will also receive a special PS4 Theme and Avatar pack.
  • Digital Pre-Order Bonuses: Offers exclusive Sheriff Rick and Hunter Daryl character skins, Gold Katana and Gold Knuckle Knife weapon skins, and a pre-purchase discount on participating platforms.
  • Retail Editions: Retail Exclusive Deluxe Editions and a limited run Survivor Edition are available at Retail. The Survivor Edition will feature all in-game and Deluxe Edition content, an exclusive SteelBook®, and 1 of 5 Collectable Postcards. Visit your local retailer for additional details and availability.
The VR game release is just days before the much-anticipated Season 10 Finale of The Walking Dead, premiering Sunday, October 4th on AMC.

Key Features:

  • Campaign Story:Play as Daryl Dixon through an original campaign story about a supply run gone awry and an ensuing encounter with a watchful stranger in a mysterious town.
  • Alexandria Safe Zone: Watch the transformation of Alexandria as the settlement is rebuilt into a fortress of hope. Spend resources wisely to create structures for unique stat boosts, essential upgrades, and more.
  • 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)
  • Fast-Action Survival: Every trip beyond the walls of Alexandria means a chance to collect valuable weapons, food, materials, and other resources for the community. But beware: each supply run provides unpredictable walker encounters, resource availability, and obstacles to test your sense of flight or fight.
  • 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
  • +24 Realistic Weapons:  Discover a robust arsenal of 24 weapons with realistic handling and a variety of modifications to fine-tune and suit your combat style.
  • Voice Acting by Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon), Melissa McBride (Carol), and Josh McDermitt (Eugene)

The Walking Dead Onslaught is coming to Playstation VR, and PC (Steam Vr, HTC Vive or Oculus Rift) on September 29, 2020 for $29.99.
