'The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners - Chapter 2: Retribution' Gets New PC And PS VR2 Launch Date

by Rainier on Jan. 23, 2023 @ 11:59 a.m. PST

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners Ch. 2 serves as a continuation of the original game, where players will take on the mantle of the Tourist in their gruesome adventure to survive the unforgiving and infested remains of New Orleans.

Chapter 2: Retribution is the next chapter in The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners storyline, and players of the original game will feel the full ripple effect of their previous actions, as new parties rise up to help or hunt them.

Featuring an original storyline, freedom of choice and visceral combat that the franchise is known for, the game puts players again in the role of the character known as the Tourist, who must fight to keep surviving the flooded ruins of New Orleans, surrounded by unending herds of walkers and torn apart by warfare between the remaining survivors.

Player decisions will weigh heavily in Chapter 2: Retribution, as the Tourist is once again thrown into a tumultuous situation where they’ll encounter intense challenges and a new, powerful threat, hell-bent on Retribution.

From new features like exploring the city in the darkness of night to brand-new locations like the French Quarter, this is shaping up to be a bigger and more terrifying experience from top to bottom.

Will you be able to bring some peace to the madness or will you simply plunge the already broken community, deeper into chaos?

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners - Chapter 2 will now launch simultaneously on Steam and PSVR2 on March 21, 2023 with both versions jam packed with a slew of improvements based on community feedback from the Meta Quest 2 launch. Furthermore, saves will be transferable between platforms including Meta, Steam and PSVR2. This also means that users who purchased the Meta Quest 2 version in December 2022 can carry over their progress and experience the game on additional platforms. 

For the anniversary of The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, players who already purchased the game on PSVR will be able to download the game for free on PSVR2 when it launches on March 21, 2023.

A bundle for The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners and Chapter 2: Retribution will be available for $59.99 USD on Meta. This offer starts on Jan 23 and ends on Feb 6.  

All owners of Chapter 2: Retribution will receive a new weapon “The Orphan” once the game has launched on PC and PSVR2. This gift will also apply to Quest and Pico owners. 

Skydance is also giving players a chance to play a demo of The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners on the Meta Quest store. This free demo grants access to the first 30 minutes of play of the game and will be available from Jan 23 to Feb 6. 

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners - Chapter 2: Retribution will also be coming to PSVR & PlayStation 4 as well as PS5 physical media and the Japan and Korea regions later this year. Dates on these releases will be announced in the coming month(s).

Key Features:

  • THE WALKING DEAD REDEFINED: Saints & Sinners wowed both fans and critics alike with its immersive take on The Walking Dead universe. Chapter 2: Retribution brings us even more action, more tension, more walkers, and more human stories to remind us all that we are just a few social barriers away from tearing one another apart for an extra day of survival.
  • BRUTALLY TACTILE COMBAT: Making use of anything you can safely scavenge before the herd comes down on you, then take on dangerous missions to find even greater rewards, finding and crafting the ultimate arsenal to take on threats both living and undead. There’s plenty of things in the world out to end you, but an even greater number of methods to survive your way.
  • SURVIVAL EVOLVED: With complex physics and feedback, players feel each lumbering swing of an axe, the rumble of gunfire during a firefight, and the desperate struggle as they throw grasping walkers off of them. Each new weapon found and new enemy to face is another opportunity for players to experience unique, gritty battles that can’t be found anywhere else.
  • AN EVER EXPANDING STORY: Resources have dwindled, a new terrifying threat stalks the streets, and the Tower pushes for even greater control of the city. Those exiled are trapped in the middle of it all. How will you shape the future of this city, what choices and consequences will you have to deal with as multiple targets are painted on your back? This is Chapter 2 of the Saints & Sinners story.

The team at Skydance Interactive is continuously excited to develop groundbreaking, deep-rooted VR gaming experiences for users to live survival horror on Meta headsets.

Currently available for Meta Quest 2, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners - Chapter 2: Retribution is coming to PCVR and PS VR 2 on March 21, 2023, followed by PS4 and PS VR later this year.
