The Walking Dead: Onslaught is a survival shooter developed by Survios for PSVR and PC VR systems (Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Valve Index). Based on AMC’s hit TV show, the game features an original story that slots in between the show’s seasons eight and nine.
Onslaught is purely a single-player title and involves scavenging for supplies, rebuilding the settlement of Alexandria, upgrading character stats and weapons, and, of course, fending off walkers. The player will have to deal with as many as 30 walkers on the screen and eliminate them using a variety of ranged and melee weapons, with the damage viscerally depicted by the developer’s touted “progressive dismemberment” system.
