After a long time away from the gaming spotlight, Sony Bend has finally revealed the title they have been working on and it’s the post-apocalyptic Days Gone.
Sony debuted the trailer and gameplay footage during for Days Gone during its E3 2016 Press Conference. There’s plenty of Last of Us influence in the game but the fact that it is an open-world game should let Sony Bend’s game stand apart from Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic title.
Here’s the basic synopsis from the PlayStation Blog:
Set in the beautiful, volcanic scarred high-desert of the Pacific Northwest, Days Gone is an open world action-adventure game where you play as Deacon St. John, a Drifter and bounty hunter who would rather risk the dangers of the broken road than live in one of the “safe” wilderness encampments. The game takes place two years after a global pandemic has killed almost everyone, but transformed millions of others into what survivors call Freaks — mindless, feral creatures, more animal than human but very much alive and quickly evolving. In the demo, you saw two types of Freaks — Newts, which were adolescents when infected, are opportunistic hunters, preferring to hit and run from the shadows; and a Horde. Made up of hundreds of individual Freakers, Hordes eat, move and attack together, almost as one. Some Hordes roam the highways at night, while others, like the one in the demo, have found a food source that keeps it in a single location. Skills learned in his prior life as an outlaw biker have given Deacon a slight edge in the seemingly never-ending fight to stay alive. But will it be enough?
Excited for the game? Days Gone will launch exclusively on PlayStation 4.
