Days Gone

Have to admit when seeing the initial footage of this game : with its tsunami of infected chasing you I was less than impressed, the whole DayZ feel didn't strike me as particularly interesting to play a game.

But after watching the latest E3 footage it looks like a more traditional open world game after all : cant say its a day one but given my love of the genre its a maybe so....

The Horde :

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.

Two of the types of Freaks you meet are –

Newts, which were adolescents when infected, are opportunistic hunters, preferring to hit and run from the shadows.

The Horde. Made up of hundreds of individual Freakers, Hordes eat, move and attack together, almost as one.

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?

The player can complete objectives in multiple ways, such as by using stealth or long and short ranged weapons.

A dynamic weather system and day-night cycle will also feature, making "Freakers" weak and slow by day but fast and aggressive by night.

A large part of the gameplay will centre around Deacon's motorbike, which will be your sole vehicle for getting around the world.

You'll need to look after it, as you won't get another one, and you can't summon it to your side, so ensuring it's safe and well maintained will be important.

Days Gone is set to release exclusively on PS4 on 22nd February, 2019.
