Today, Skydance Interactive launched the first major update for the studio’s critically acclaimed survival horror VR game, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners. ‘The Meatgrinder Update’ is now available across all supported platforms, including PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, Rift S, Quest (via Link cable only) Index, HTC Vive and Windows MR headsets.
The Meatgrinder Update introduces players to an all-new game mode, titled, ‘The Trial,’ where they’ll face off against relentless waves of walkers. As players survive each round they’ll be rewarded with points based on their performance, which they’ll use to purchase a variety of weapons and crafting items to plan for the next, increasingly difficult wave of enemies. In order to survive, players will need to get creative in their kills and manage resources appropriately!
“Our team has been hard at work to continuously improve The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners since its launch, and The Meatgrinder Update is the first major update that offers players an entirely new way to play,” said Roy Orr, Lead Designer. “We can’t wait for players to put their skills to their test as they face new challenges in ‘The Trial’ and fight to survive against hordes of walkers.”
In addition, the update adds the new ‘Absolution’ skin for the katana weapon. Players can slice and dice their enemies in both The Trial and campaign modes. Players can also try out a new difficulty option which will prioritize the game’s story over gameplay challenges, allowing them to explore the flooded streets of New Orleans and watch the events of The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners unfold.
The Meatgrinder Update is available for free for players who own The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners. Newcomers can purchase the Standard Edition for $39.99 via the Oculus Store, Steam, PlayStation Store and The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners’ official website. Players looking for even more content can learn more about the Tourist and Tower Editions, which offers more in-game bonuses and exclusive items, on The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners’ official website.
