Days Gone Is Ready, Says Bend Studios

After a bit of a bumpy journey, Sony’s Bend Studios has today announced via their official Twitter account that Days Gone is ready and complete, paving the way for its launch next month.

In what is currently being touted as Sony’s biggest exclusive of the year, Days Gone is an action adventure game where you play as Deacon St. John and you quickly learn that your motorbike is your lifeline as you fight to survive against the constant barrage of the freaker herds.

Check out the official tweet from Bend Studio that where they braved the cold to announce the news of that Days Gone is ready:


Also check out the most recent Days Gone trailer showing a younger, happier Deacon in a flashback of his wedding to wife Sarah:


Step into the dirt flecked shoes of former outlaw biker Deacon St. John, a bounty hunter trying to find a reason to live in a land surrounded by death. Scavenge through abandoned settlements for equipment to craft valuable items and weapons, or take your chances with other survivors trying to eke out a living through fair trade… or more violent means.

With humanity devastated by a global pandemic and ravaged by feral creatures known as Freakers, any mistake could be your last in your attempt to carve out a new life in the hostile Pacific Northwest high-desert.
