Upload VR's showcase today previewed upcoming DLC for The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners. The Meatgrinder Update's release is planned for sometime next month. The Trial appears to be a new feature, letting players engage with waves of the undead. Players will test how long they can survive in this game mode against the onslaught of zombies before succumbing. All weapons will be unlockable through the Trial game mode. The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners will also feature new levels of difficulty for Absolution and Campaign games modes, appealing to casual and hardcore players alike. Players can unlock a new katana skin as well with the upcoming update.
The base game is already out now on Steam, and TechRaptor has already covered previews of the VR title. Players explore a flooded New Orleans after the zombie apocalypse, meeting with friends and foes while trying to stay one step ahead of the ever-ravenous Walkers, zombies with a desire to devour flesh. It met with critical acclaim, and quickly became a top seller on the PSVR and PC upon its release earlier this year. Swing, chop, and shoot at the lumbering undead menace in tense, pulse-pounding VR combat while scavenging for supplies in the derelict city.

The VR release has been wildly successful and has incorporated a lot of the best things that you can't recreate with a console release. There's something oddly right and visceral about the virtual combat.
