Days Gone Release Date & Trailer Revealed


What a journey this game has gone through, from its original reveal at E3 2016 to today where we can finally announce the Days Gone release date. Bend Studios (The Syphon Filter series and Uncharted: Golden Abyss on Vita) and Sony Interactive Entertainment are happy to finally reveal that Days Gone will be making its way to the PlayStation 4 console in February 2019.

It’s a race against the world as you fight for your survival against all kinds of enemies in a “Daryl Dixon Walking Dead” style of game, just make sure your bike doesn’t run out of fuel.

Watch the official ‘This World Comes For You’ Days Gone release date trailer below:

 

At its core, Days Gone is about survivors and what makes them human: desperation, loss, madness, betrayal, friendship, brotherhood, regret, love – and hope. It’s about how even when confronted with such enormous tragedy they find a reason to live. Hope never dies. Play as Deacon St. John, a bounty hunter facing a brutal struggle for survival, searching for a reason to live.

In addition to human drifters, marauders, and other groups, Deacon must face a wilderness overrun by Freakers – mindless, feral creatures, more animal than human but very much alive and quickly evolving. Freakers have needs, habits and behaviors that the player can learn and adapt to. The harsh high-desert of the Pacific Northwest offers a large variety of environments in a single geographical area. One minute Deacon can be riding through a pristine forest, a snow field, a lush meadow, and the next, be in the harsh desert lava fields. The hazardous environments, scarred by millions of years of volcanic activity, are defined by ancient lava flows, mountains, caves, cliffs and river basins, delivering a breathtaking backdrop to an equally diverse style of gameplay. Cinnabar mines, lava tube caves and small rural towns offer a variety of environments to explore.

Days Gone will launch on February 22, 2019 exclusively to PlayStation 4. For more information, head to the official Days Gone website.
