Today, Skydance Interactive announced that digital preorders for The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners are now live. It's quite a popular virtual reality (VR) game that's garnered a lot of interest in recent months. The team revealed that the game will be launching on Oculus Rift, Rift S, Quest Link Beta, and HTC Vive on January 23, 2020.

It's also coming to PlayStation VR and Quest as a standalone release later in the year.

In The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, freedom of choice and visceral combat offer players a new way to live survival horror in a deep-rooted VR gaming experience. Scale buildings to ambush enemies from above, hold down a walker's head to rip a knife out of its skull or attack from a distance with throwing weapons, bows and long-range firearms. Players can choose from an arsenal of weapons or craft their own to fit their play style and survive their way. Physics-based combat makes every swing of an axe or jab of a knife resonate with impact. Choices in The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners will affect not just how the combat plays out but the fate of the city and its other survivors. New Orleans is at war and the living are not just fending off the dead, but each other as well. As players dive deeper into this unforgiving journey they will uncover the mystery at the heart of the conflict that threatens to tear the city apart.

You can choose between standard, deluxe, and collector's editions. The standard edition comes in at $40, the deluxe edition comes in at $50, and the collector's edition costs $150. As expected, the more money you spend, the more in-game content you get. However, the collector's edition also gives you a lot of physical goodies like concept art and a literal thumb drive.

To preorder the game, just head over to your headset's store and look for it in the preorders section. It should go live in a few hours on the Oculus Store.
