VR hit The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners gets a new chapter

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution is coming from Skydance Interactive and Skybound Entertainment. It’s a stand-alone follow-up to one of 2020’s best VR games, and we’ll learn more about it later this year.

The original The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, an open-ended VR survival horror game following a person trying to survive on the brutal streets of a zombie-infested New Orleans, has made over $60 million in revenue since its January 2020 release. Considering that the VR horror game sold well and received good reviews, it’s not surprising that a follow-up is in the cards.

Chapter 2: Retribution will directly follow up the story of The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners while introducing new characters and enemies. The developers confirmed that it would have a choice-driven narrative like the original. Chris Busse, acting head of Skydance Interactive, also teases in the press release that the game will take players outside the French Quarter, the first game’s main setting.

Still, Skydance and Skybound are being quite coy regarding specifics. Chapter 2: Retribution still does not have a firm release date or confirmed platforms. A PR representative confirmed to Digital Trends that Skybound and Skydance would reveal those details later this year. Perhaps it could end up on the PlayStation VR2, which was unveiled at CES 2022 earlier this month.

This isn’t the only game Skydance has in store, as the Amy Hennig-led Skydance New Media team is working on an unannounced game with Marvel. 

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution is currently in development for VR platforms, and we’ll learn more about it later in 2022.

Resident Evil 4 Separate Ways DLC: where to find the Lord of the Waterway in Chapter 5
Ada Wong points a gun

As you make your way through Resident Evil 4's Separate Ways DLC, you'll occasionally come across some blue notes stapled to the wall near merchant locations. These offer you unique merchant requests for the area that can be completed and turned in to earn Spinels for buying useful items. When you find yourself in Gregorio's Waterway in Chapter 5, you'll stumble upon one of these merchant requests asking you to track down, eliminate, and then sell the Lord of the Waterway. Here's where to reel in this big fish.
Where to find the Lord of the Waterway in Chapter 5
After picking up the merchant request, continue through the linear pathway until you come across a wheel you can turn that will lower the water in the area. Return to the merchant's room, where you'll find you can now descend a ladder into the remaining knee-deep water.

From where you land, take the left path through the destroyed wall and kill any bugs that get in your way. Take another left directly after and make your way around the pillar in the center of this next segment of the room. When you reach the back wall, you'll be able to crouch and pass through the tight opening here. Directly after exiting on the other side, you should notice a large fish in the water ahead of you – this is the Lord of the Waterway. Kill it, then loot its corpse.

Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty Relic guide
Songbird in a dress in Phantom Liberty.

The first and only expansion for Cyberpunk 2077 has far more than just a new area and missions to fill your time. Phantom Liberty is part of the 2.0 update that almost completely overhauls the systems introduced in the base game to be more in line with the original vision, It also adds new mechanics to flesh out the experience even further. Once you start the expansion, the first thing you will probably notice is the completely revamped skill system, which now includes a brand new tree called the Relic tree. These skills are all brand new, and alone could be reason enough to start a fresh adventure in Night City. But these Relic skills don't function like the other skills where you simply need to level up to unlock and upgrade them. Don't worry, Samurai, we'll transfer all the data you need on how to get Relic skills and what each of them does.
How to get Relic points
The new Relic skill tree is the only new feature in terms of skills that you need to purchase the Phantom Liberty expansion to access. Once you begin the expansion, the tree and a few starting points will be given to you automatically from a new character. To get more Relic points, you have to track down a new feature called Militech Data Terminals rather than simply leveling up. These points will only pop up on your map once you're close to them, so you will need to search them out for the most part.
All Relic skills

The Relic skill tree is broken down into three branches: Jailbreak, Emergency Cloaking, and Vulnerability. Just like any normal skill tree, you need to unlock each skill in order to gain access to the next one, so planning out which branch you want to invest in before spending your precious points is vital, especially since some trees have many more levels to them than others. Here's what each branch gives you:
Jailbreak: Unlocks new abilities for your Arm Cyberwear, including the Mantis Blades, Gorilla Arms, Projectile Launch System, and Monowire.
