[Update #2]: The Walking Dead Onslaught has now arrived, though sadly alongside poor reviews.

[Update]: VR action game The Walking Dead Onslaught is coming to PC and PSVR on September 29, 2020!

The Walking Dead Onslaught is an upcoming VR focused game where you'll get to play as various characters from the series in order to annihilate hordes upon hordes of the undead. In order to make this as satisfying as possible, Onslaught will have a "progressive dismemberment system", which essentially means you'll be able to slice pieces off zombies, chop off their limbs, impale them on objects, and otherwise hideously damage the already shambling corpses.

However, it would appear that trying to implement and polish all of that has been a bit more challenging than expected, and as such The Walking Dead Onslaught will not be making its expected 2019 release date. Instead, it has been pushed back to some point in 2020, with more news about the actual release date coming in the near future.

"We have always strived to deliver high-quality, fun games that push the boundaries of VR," reads the brief developer update. "To that end, The Walking Dead Onslaught will now release in 2020 as we continue to build nothing short of an exceptional experience for our players."

While this is pure and utter speculation, I think the earliest we can possibly see Onslaught is late February or March, purely because the thematically similar The Walking Dead : Saints & Sinners will be releasing on January 21st. After all, it doesn't make much sense to have the (currently) only two The Walking Dead VR games directly compete with each other for a moment in the spotlight.

Whatever the case may be, you can keep an eye on any future updates over at the official website. And just for good measure, I'll send you off with the original announcement trailer. It's not exactly rich in gameplay, by which I mean there is none at all, but it should help set the mood quite nicely. Enjoy!
