One of Sony’s most trusted new games is Days Gone. In the two years since the announcement of the game which has managed to attract attention very few screen images were shared and Sony did not provide any information. There are still dozens of questions about the game but we at least sum up what we know. When are we going to jump in my car? Are we going to attack the freakers individually or in flocks? Will the action go to the bottom, or will we be abundantly hidden? You will find the answers we know in this article.
What is the game release date?
There is no clear statement to date of Days Gone’s exact date of departure in months and days. In E3 of 2017 Sony stated that Days Gone will be released in the first half of 2018 which is about 4 months ahead. Shuhei Yoshida who is president of Sony Interactive Entertainment’s studio said the game will be released in 2018. However it should not be forgotten that when the game was announced in E3 2016 there were claims that it would make an exit in 2017 then this date was later forwarded. The game alleged to use all the power of the PlayStation 4 Pro was expected to go out earlier to support sales of this console. Therefore it is beneficial to approach the information on release date in a cautious manner.
Who develops the game for which platforms?
The studio that developed the game was SIE Bend Studio (formerly Eidetic) which Sony bought in 2000. PlayStation fans will remember this name very closely because they developed the Sysphon Filter from PlayStation’s legendary series. Besides Siphon Filter, SIE Bend developed two new Uncharted games for Vita and since 2012 there are no other games.
The game will definitely be exclusive to the PlayStation 4. There is no need to think about whether or not it will come out on PC someday. SIE Bend has not developed any console games outside Sony until today, so we do not expect it to change in the near future. The “Only PlayStation 4” statement on the game’s official page is also evidence of this.
We’re going to play with a motorcyclist named Deacon St.John. He is a type who likes to live in the dangers of the outside world and does not like to be intimate with people. Our disaster is a world-wide catastrophe that turns millions of people into terrible zombies after two years. These zombies named Freaker. Now look more like animals than humans and evolved quickly. Days Gone’s zombies are not brainless creatures, some of them hiding in the shadows and hitting some tactics, some of them are moving in flocks and hundreds of them come together to attack.
We do not know much about the details of Days Gone’s story but we know it will be an emotional journey. We will learn about Deacon’s sad story and see how it works with grief while trying to survive on the one hand.
Is there anything new in game mechanics?
Days Gone is an action-adventure game in the open world and we will play in the perspective of a third-person perspective, waiting for us to create plenty of conflict and plenty of things. It’s a bit like The Last of Us in this respect but we do not have a chance to deal with all the Freakers in the game. So we will have to use the environment and Freaker’s behaviors in such a way as to take advantage of ourselves.
Also as a motorist if we use a lot of engines in the race, it will be a fun mechanic. As we travel on the motorbike we will be able to perform the zombie head blasting fantasy with the pumped rifle. But the most interesting detail about the game is the effect of the variability of the air on the game. The weather does not only change the events that take place, it also affects the mechanics of the game. Deacon is more difficult to use when driving a motor in the snow and the Freakers are adapting to these profitable conditions and coming out in different ways.
The time of day and weather will directly influence future events and we will really experience different experiences thanks to the dynamic scenario. On this way, we will be able to notice the ambiguities we have not noticed before and we will find ourselves in a different story.
Deacon will play the voice and model role of the famous actor Sam Witwer. We know him especially from Crashdown in Battlestar Galactica, Davis Bloome in Smallville, Aidan Waite in Being Human. Witwer also made voices in various series and games including Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and Star Wars Battlefront.
Days Gone is a real open world game it is entirely up to us to decide what tasks to take. SIE Bend says we can not do missions we do not want but we will not know how we will affect our progress in this game without seeing it.
Nothing we’ve seen so far about the game shows that Days Gone will have a multi-player mode in any way.
The items we can use force our imagination. For example we can use the oil filter of a vehicle to wear our gun and use it as a muffler. Our choices in the ballot will also be linked to our plans and our products that we have plundered to a great extent.
