You might have noticed that the PS4-exclusive zombiefest Days Gone has landed on this month’s Game Informer cover. What’s interesting is that GI is promising a full month of exclusive coverage. Watch the trailer:
While many of the forums are revealing a lot of info but we must take that with a pinch of salt. There are five new encampments and some city environments in the game. The enemy “Ambush Camps” need to be cleared out and there aren’t any rote fetch quests or time trials.
The content creators have created everything with a storyline in the background. For instance, the zombies that you will come across, are going to be with a crowd of 300 considered a “baby horde” (some will have over 500 shamblers).
Sony describes the game’s story as:
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 Freakers – mindless, feral creatures, more animal than human but very much alive and quickly evolving. Skills learned in his prior life as an outlaw biker has given Deacon a slight edge in the seemingly never-ending fight to stay alive. But will it be enough?
The title will be releasing for the PS4 by the next year!
