Originally, PS4-exclusive Days Gone was slated to release in February, but Sony has decided to push the title back to April. Not only will the game have a couple of extra months for “further polish”, it will also avoid sharing the release date with Anthem, Crackdown 3 and Metro Exodus.
MORE ABOUT DAYS GONE:
Days Gone is a Third Person Shooter / open world action game developed by SIE Bend Studio, famous for the Syphon Filter series. Players take on a role of a rebellious biker, Deacon St. John, who tries to survive in a post-apocalyptic world decimated by a global pandemic two years ago.
The developers promise to show what drives the survivors in this unwelcoming world they find themselves in: desperation, loss, madness, betrayal, friendship, brotherhood, regret, love – and hope.
Using the power of PlayStation 4 and Unreal Engine 4, Days Gone offers an incredibly realistic and detailed open-world 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.
