The Walking Dead: Saints And Sinners Pre-Order Guide: Release Date, Special Editions, VR Compatibility
The Walking Dead has seen quite a few video game adaptations over the past decade, and now it’s coming to VR. The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners is coming to pretty much every virtual reality headset available on the market today–however, not all at once.
The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners hits Steam and the Oculus Store on January 23. On that day, it’ll only be compatible with the Valve Index, HTC Vive, HTC Cosmos, Oculus Rift and Rift S, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets. Of course, you’ll also be able to play it on the Oculus Quest with the recently released Link beta, but a proper port for the all-in-one headset is scheduled for Q3 2020 (July-September). PlayStation VR will see the game hit its storefront a little earlier in Q1 2020 (January-March).
There are three different editions for The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners. The standard edition comes with the game and “The Sheriff” revolver pre-order bonus for $40 USD. The Tourist edition, on the other hand, comes with even more digital bonuses, including more weapons and the soundtrack. And lastly, the physical Tower edition comes with some physical goodies like a reversible backpack that doubles as a VR headset carrying case. You can see more on all of these additions below.
Pre-order The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners standard edition
The $40 standard edition of the game comes with the game itself and a single pre-order item: “The Sheriff” revolver. Pre-orders are currently only available on Steam, but we’ll update this story when more platforms become available.

The $50 Tourist edition comes with the game and an assortment of digital pre-order bonuses. In addition to “The Sheriff” revolver, you also get “The National” knife, “The Judge” bat, in-game crafting recipes, and “Bustomization” New Orleans voodoo dolls. On top of that, you also get some additional bonuses, such as podcasts, the trailer song, and the full game soundtrack. PlayStation VR pre-orders also get a dynamic theme, though that version isn’t currently available for pre-order.
