Days Gone is an action-adventure survival horror game, set in a post-apocalyptic open world, played from a third-person perspective. The game takes place two years after a global pandemic occurred which killed almost all of humanity, and transformed millions of others into zombie-like creatures called “Freakers”. The player controls Deacon St. John (Sam Witwer), a former outlaw-turned drifter and bounty hunter who prefers life on the road on his bike.
In the E3 2016 stage demo, two types of “Freakers” were revealed, Newts and Hordes. In the E3 2017 stage demo, infected animals such as bears and wolves also were revealed to also comprise the “Freakers”, and human enemies are revealed to be featured in the game as well.
Today, at E3 2018, Sony Interactive Entertainment will reveal new contaminated animals (bears, pumas and crows), and a new enemy group, Rest In Peace (R.I.P.), a cult made by those who worship the Freakers. This cult is not so hard to identify, they are wearing the same clothes and kill everyone. 🙂
We also know that the player can complete objectives in multiple ways, such as by using stealth or long and short ranged weapons. Also, a dynamic weather system and day-night cycle will also feature, making “Freakers” weak and slow by day, but fast and aggressive by night. Vehicles such as motorbikes can be used to explore, and the player is able to craft new items to improve combat efficiency.
Judging by the trailers, I think Days Gone will be similar to Far Cry 5 (with a totally other story, ofc).
Here is the trailer!
