At the Sony E3 2016 Press Conference a new IP was unveiled as Days Gone, a new third-person shooter title developed by former Syphon Filter developer SIE Bend Studio. First revealed in a cinematic announcement trailer, Days Gone shows the protagonist, Deacon St. John, as a drifter and bounty hunter surviving in a post-apocalyptic world.
The first cinematic trailer established the background of Days Gone. It is 2 years after a global pandemic killed most of humanity and transformed millions of others into “Freakers," mindless creatures that attack everything in sight and are constantly evolving.
Later there was a full gameplay demo of Days Gone. Deacon is scavenging through an abandoned mill and looking for a man named Two-Dog. Eventually the later is eaten and Deacon attempts to fight against many Freakers. There were two types of Freakers: Newts, small toddler sized creatures and Hordes, full sized zombie-like beings.
Days Gone is exclusive to the PlayStation 4, and the release date has yet to be determined. If you have any comments, leave them below.
