Days Gone: Info and Release Date

A new treat for all third-person action-adventure thrill-seekers out there will be launched on February 22, 2019, and comes under the title Days Gone. It is an exciting new post-apocalyptic open-world zombie-infested survival game, developed by SIE Bend Studio and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. The game will be available exclusively for PlayStation 4.


Days Gone Creative Director and Writer John Garvin said the game would take an average player 30 hours to complete, adding that it could even take longer than that, as the decisions and choices the player makes may bring different results and consequences.


“The golden path is going to take you about 30 hours, but it’s going to take you a lot longer than that because things are going to happen to you along the way depending on how careful you are and how much you pay attention,” Garvin said in an interview with Game Informer.

The player controls a character named Deacon St. John, a biker who, two years after a global pandemic turned a significant portion of the human population into mindless zombies, prefers to survive on his own on his motorbike in the dangerous vastness of the outside world than to feel trapped in camps among other people.

The outside world is full of zombies that attack in groups and dangerous wild animals, but there are many features that may help you if you’re observant and practical enough, in addition to making the game itself more interesting. These include vehicles that you can ride around and explore the vast open world, customization, and upgrading of weapons and equipment, building encampments, crafting, etc.

In case you get bored with all this, the developers have incorporated sudden weather changes, just to keep you on your toes.
