Starbreeze Studios, Skybound, and 505 Games are coming together for San Diego Comic-Con between July 9-12, showcasing StarVR – Starbreeze’s 210-degree virtual reality headset – OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead VR-experience, and PAYDAY 2. At Comic-Con, Starbreeze and 505 Games are hosting a PAYDAY 2 booth (#5535) where fans can try out the game, get some awesome goodies, and meet with Almir Listo, OVERKILL Producer and Brand Director extraordinaire.

Additionally Skybound is celebrating its 5-year anniversary and is hosting several events during the show, among those an entertainment panel in Room 6BCF from 3:30-4:30 PM on Thursday (that’s TODAY, July 9), where OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead VR-experience will be featured, among other things.

Just across the street from Comic-Con at Petco Park, Starbreeze and Skybound are bringing the OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead VR-experience on the road with an actual RV bus parked right next to the event. Fans are able to come and try out the OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead VR experience using the recently announced StarVR virtual reality headset at the RV and meet with the developers. Opening hours are on Friday and Saturday between 11AM-6PM and 6PM-11PM, respectively.

The OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead VR RV is set to go on the road after Comic-Con, appearing in venues around the U.S. to give fans an opportunity to try out the experience themselves. Specific dates and locations are to be announced.

“This Comic-Con is going to be the first time since E3 that we show StarVR together with the OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead VR-experience. It’s going to be really fun seeing what people think when they get to try it out. I’m sure this Comic-Con is going to be one to remember,” said Almir Listo, Global Brand Director at Starbreeze.
