‘The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners’ for Quest to Get ‘The Trial’ Wave Mode Next Month

Image
Skydance Interactive today announced that it’s bringing its wave-based mode to the Quest version of its hit single-payer zombie shooter, The Walking Dead: Saints Sinners (2020). Called ‘The Trial’, the game’s one-year anniversary update is slated to launch for free on the Quest platform on January 20th, 2021. The Trial game mode lets players take on increasingly difficult waves of zombies. Points based on the your zombie-killing performance are tallied up so you can buy a variety of weapons and crafting items, preparing you for the next, more difficult wave. The Trial previously came as a part of the ‘Meatgrinder’ update on the game’s other supported platforms this summer. Launched first on PC VR headsets January 23rd of this year, and then later to PSVR this summer, Saints & Sinners garnered critical acclaim for its cohesive RPG-style story, zombie-killing action, and intensely immersive visuals. With the launch of Quest 2 in October, the game also landed on the Quest pl

How do you build the best party in Genshin Impact?

So, you've pulled Venti in Genshin Impact. Now you need a powerful team to support him. When you're first starting out in Genshin Impact, it's easy to become overwhelmed with building up a perfect party of fighters. Initially, you'll only have a small cast of characters to work with, but you'll quickly obtain more through events and the game's Wish system, as you'll be showered in Primogems to spend on Wishes early on. Once you have a few characters sitting around, likely representing all available elements (there are seven total elements, but Dendro doesn't have any character representatives currently), and you probably want to know who you should be spending resources on to make the strongest party you can.

The service isn't dead, but it needs a severe shake-up if it wants to avoid being put on life support. I have admittedly been a Stadia skeptic ever since its announcement. Not because I believed the service would be bad or that it couldn't deliver its promises of instant game streaming, but because I didn't know who it was for . I certainly wasn't its target audience, and I didn't understand what it could offer that other services or consoles couldn't. I still don't, and that makes me feel like Google Stadia will ultimately lose the game streaming war unless it undergoes a major overhaul. Stadia launched as a premium service back in November 2019. Still, it wasn't until recently in February that I got to play using a Buddy Pass — to which I can thank Android Central's own Daniel Bader. Being able to play Metro Exodus immediately, no loading screens or downloads required, felt like I was witnessing magic. It's hard to overstate or even
