Do you remember how it all went down? Do you remember when living meant more than surviving? Days Gone for the Sony PS4 is a post-apocalyptic survival game set in the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest, where you need to unravel the mystery of end of the world.
At its core, Days Gone is about survivors and what makes them human: desperation, loss, madness, betrayal, friendship, brotherhood, regret, love and hope. It's about how even when confronted with such enormous tragedy they find a reason to live. Hope never dies.
Freakers are humans infected with the virus that destroyed the world. With a variety of types, from Screamers to Swarmers to massive Hordes, Freakers are constantly on the hunt for their next meal — you.
Most survivors fled to the wilderness in search of safety. Some formed groups that roam the broken road looking to murder the helpless. Others lost their minds. In the open world, trust no one and keep your survivor skills sharp.
From dangerous predators like the mountain lion to infected creatures like Ragers and Runners, your chances of survival in the wilderness are only as good as your bike. Always be prepared to fight to survive.
Play as Deacon St. John, a bounty hunter facing a brutal struggle for survival, searching for a reason to live.
A Dynamic World - Using the power of PlayStation 4 and Unreal Engine 4, Days Gone offers an incredibly realistic and detailed open-world action game experience. Vast and hostile environments can be fully explored on the back of Deacon’s drifter bike. Abandoned vehicles can be searched for useful items. Towns and buildings can be entered and searched – at great risk. All lighting is done in real time – eye adaption technology creates a real sense of dread when entering dark buildings; day and night have an impact on the experience; weather affects enemy behavior.
Brutal Sandbox Combat - Exemplifying true, free-form gameplay, Days Gone offers freedom to explore, strategize and play “your way.” Every challenge can be approached and completed in an almost infinite number of ways. Many different items and weapons can be crafted using items found in the field, including brutal melee weapons and traps. Customizable weapons and skills offer true freedom in how the game is played.
Unique Enemies - In addition to human drifters, marauders, and other groups, Deacon must face a wilderness overrun by Freakers – mindless, feral creatures, more animal than human but very much alive and quickly evolving. Freakers have needs, habits and behaviors that the player can learn and adapt to.
Unique Setting - The harsh high-desert of the Pacific Northwest offers a large variety of environments in a single geographical area. One minute Deacon can be riding through a pristine forest, a snow field, a lush meadow, and the next, be in the harsh desert lava fields. The hazardous environments, scarred by millions of years of volcanic activity, are defined by ancient lava flows, mountains, caves, cliffs and river basins, delivering a breathtaking backdrop to an equally diverse style of gameplay. Cinnabar mines, lava tube caves and small rural towns offer a variety of environments to explore.
