The Days Gone PS4-exclusive game is an open-world survival video game. Details about the highly-anticipated game is scarce since the game publisher announced it in 2016. Despite the lack of information, fans are anticipating the arrival of the zombie-survival game.
Days Gone PS4 Game Setting
The game is an open-world, action-adventure, survival horror game. It is from Sony Bend, the first-party studio behind Uncharted: Golden Abyss and the Syphon Filter franchise. The game was reportedly inspired by The Last of Us and Sons of Anarchy, particularly the zombie enemies and ‘bad-ass’ protagonist.
Gamers will play as a rebellious bicycle rider who is searching his way in a post-apocalyptic world decimated by a global pandemic. The Days Gone PS4 game is set in a post-apocalyptic Pacific Northwest. While playing the game, players will get the nostalgia from The Last of Us and Sons of Anarchy due to the game’s environment.
Days Gone Zombies Are Ruthless
The story occurred two years after a worldwide pandemic has eliminated nearly everyone. However, the pandemic transformed countless others into what survivors call Freakers. The unknown virus changed millions of humans into meaningless zombies.
Venture Beat mentioned that Freakers are fast, ruthless and arguably unstoppable. Freakers are a bit like zombies, but not entirely. Freakers are feral with more animal than human instincts. The game makers described these creatures as alive and quickly progressing. Deacon St. John is the protagonist who chose to live in the harmful outdoors than the boundaries of civilian encampments, even if it implies fighting hordes of unrelenting infected humans.
A game demonstration revealed two types of Freaks — the Newts and Hordes. The former are young when contaminated and opportunistic hunters. The latter are big groups that consume, move and assault as one. The Freakers have the ability to group together in overwhelming numbers. The E3 2016 demo showed hundreds upon hundreds of infected charge to the player, toppling over each other in awkward desperation.
Days Gone PS4 Gameplay
The open-world nature of the game is interesting enough. The gameplay preview showed that players have the ability to set traps and craft materials. Gamers can also play in different methods to achieve the same objective.
The game’s vast, unsafe open world will incorporate aspects of fighting, crafting and exploring into its core gameplay. Gamers will need to integrate these different mechanics to make it through. Players will utilize the the techniques in distinct and diverse methods as they tackle swarms of oncoming Freakers.
According to Games Radar, there is no specific release date for the game. The game publisher recently launched a new trailer, but it did not showcase the hordes of zombies. Instead, the latest preview showed the melancholic side of the game, perhaps indicating the game will be character-based and will not focus on the element of survival.
