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.

The best PS5 controllers for 2024

The DualSense wireless controller that arrives with your PlayStation 5 is by no means an inferior gaming product. However, it does fall short for players who want to do a little more with their control methods.

Sony has acknowledged some shortcomings with its release of the new DualSense Edge, as well as the upcoming project Leonardo that caters to gamers with disabilities, but there are some third-party options that can fit your needs just as well.

I would buy a PlayStation Portal 2 if it had this one feature
A Pulse Elite, DualSense, and PlayStation Portal sit on a table.

I've had a bit of a love-hate relationship with the PlayStation Portal since it launched. Initially, I was disappointed by Sony's cloud streaming device. I was impressed with its screen and appreciated its DualSense integration, but its slimmeddown features made it feel like a cheap version of a good idea. I've since learned to find a use case for my PlayStation Portal that turned it into an integral part of my gaming setup. It's very imperfect, but that doesn't mean it's not useful.

Ever since its launch, I've been hoping for a refreshed follow-up, whether that be a Pro model or a true PlayStation Portal 2. It may be way too early to start discussing that considering that the Portal just launched in November 2023, but the promising device has enough glaring flaws that I'd welcome a fast-tracked successor. If Sony were to make a PlayStation Portal 2, though, there's one feature that's nonnegotiable: Bluetooth.

The best games for laptops

Gaming on your laptop didn't used to be a serious option outside of very simple games. Newer laptops have a lot more power inside for gaming, but can't quite keep up with the latest and greatest of games on PC and consoles. Plus, you typically are restricted to a keyboard and touchpad that makes more intensive games uncomfortable or too difficult to enjoy. Since you won't always have access to a separate mouse or standard controller, you might need some games that still play great on your laptop without needing any accessories.

These are the best games you can either play with nothing but the keyboard or minimal mouse use to avoid any hand cramps.
