AMC and Survios are partnering up to bring TWD fans the ultimate VR gaming experience, The Walking Dead Onslaught, coming this fall.

Get ready to experience life in the zombie apocalypse as you fight walkers as if you were in the middle of The Walking Dead. AMC and gaming design studio Survios are partnering to bring you The Walking Dead Onslaught, a unique and immersive VR experience designed to put players in the middle of the action.

The Walking Dead Onslaught will launch this fall at VR gaming arcades and will be available for personal VR platforms everywhere. Both AMC and Survios promise that this will be the most advanced game thus far.

Here’s the description from the official press release:

"From AMC and Survios, the studio behind top-selling VR titles Raw Data and Creed: Rise to Glory, The Walking Dead Onslaught invites players to 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. 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."

Though nothing has been confirmed, it stands to reason that the actors will reprise their roles from the show in this game, which will provide fans with yet another opportunity to follow beloved characters through new stories with exciting new locations.

“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 featuring one of the most beloved TV IPs in the world. AMC is an incredible partner, encouraging us to push immersion to a new level that can only be experienced in VR with The Walking Dead.”

The Walking Dead Onslaught arrives as the Telltale series comes to an end and fans are looking to fill the gap. While the VR technology might not be suitable for all audiences, it’s the next step after The Walking Dead: Our World game that allows players to be inside the game using their smartphones.
