Days Gone E3 Reveal
This week brought good news for fans of the zombie and post pandemic video game genres. Sony unveiled gameplay from the upcoming PS4 exclusive game, Days Gone.
This latest project from Bend Studio shows some promising open world play sure to please fans of zombie video games. Sony also published a blog post outling the plot synopsis of Days Gone:
“Set in the beautiful, volcanic scarred high-desert of the Pacific Northwest, Days Gone is an open-world action-adventure game where you play as Deacon St. John, a Drifter and bounty hunter who would rather risk the dangers of the broken road than live in one of the “safe” wilderness encampments. The game takes place two years after a global pandemic has killed almost everyone, but transformed millions of others into what survivors call Freakers – mindless, feral creatures, more animal than human but very much alive and quickly evolving.”
View the Days Gone trailer below:
While they may not officially be called “zombies” the feral infected human “Freakers” are close enough to meet our definition and definitely close enough to creep us out. If there is one form of infected that makes us quiver every time it is runners. Flesh hungry infected with the ability to sprint is the stuff nightmares are made of. What’s worse than that? Hordes of fast infected working together by the hundreds.
