Days Gone (stylized as DAYS GONE) is an upcoming action-adventure survival horror video game in development by SIE Bend Studio and to be published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for PlayStation 4. The game is going to be the first intellectual property created by SIE Bend Studio since Syphon Filter in 1999 and the first home console game developed by the studio since Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow in 2010. The game will run on Unreal Engine 4.
The game takes place two years after a global pandemic occurred which killed almost all of humanity, and transformed millions of others into “Freakers”, mindless zombie-like creatures that are quickly evolving. Now with humanity on the verge of extinction, the last of the living have taken to setting up shelter within the thick Pacific North West forests of the United States of America, in hopes of eking out some kind of life for themselves.
The game will allow players to use multiple ways to complete objectives, like utilizing stealth for silent takedowns or taking the aggressive approach by using long and short ranged weapons. Players in-game can use vehicles such as motorbikes to explore the game’s world. Players are able to craft new items to improve combat efficiency.The game features a dynamic weather system that affects the gameplay by making “Freakers” weak and slow during the day-time but fast and aggressive during the night.
The game went into production in January 2015 but there hasn’t been any confirmation on the release date yet. The game will be a PS4 exclusive.
