The open-world, post-apocalyptic survival horror Days Gone releases later near the end of April and it’s looking like a fun third person action-adventure. You play as Deacon St. John, an outlaw turned bounty hunter, who lives the world of a drifter, living in encampments and surviving the games antagonists – The Freakers. After a pandemic occurs two years previous, which almost kills off humanity, you have to battle these turned humans, wild animals, a dynamic weather system and a day night cycle.
Days Gone will see you risk it all in order to protect those who can’t. Get hunted by The Freakers, use your surroundings to your advantage, set traps or use stealth to survive this chaotic world. You also have to deal with other gangs who outgun you and want to take it all from you. Traverse by foot and by bike, as you take on whoever gets in your way of protecting your friends and camp buddies in vast and diverse locations. Build emotional bonds with fellow survivors and take all the twists & turns of your journey through Days Gone.
