Days Gone, the open-world zombie survival game from Sony Interactive Entertainment Bend Studio kenna delayed. This is some sian news indeed. Originally it was supposed to be released this year but Sony has now confirmed that it will only release the game next year. Sony replied to USgamer saying,“Days Gone will now be releasing in 2019 and we will keep you updated on the launch date.” Even PlayStation.com has changed the release date to 2019.
When the gameplay was first shown at the E3 2017, I was like “Aiyoh, not another zombie game ah. Not sian meh?” I still decided to watch the trailer and to my surprise, it was damn power lah. I was so wrong. There are quite a few things that I liked about Days Gone. The zombies don’t walk, they run and they come in freaking hordes. Also something different is that even the animals are zombified. You got like zombie wolves and bears and they look terrifying af. And my favourite thing is, got bikes. I love riding bikes in an open world, its damn shiok until you get hit by something of course. So I am looking forward to Days Gone. Nevermind lah, if I have to wait until 2019 to play this game. Just have to tahan only lor.
Check out the overview for Days Gone.
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.
Using the power of PlayStation 4 and Unreal Engine 4, Days Gone offers an incredibly realistic and detailed open-world experience. Vast and hostile environments can be fully explored on the back of Deacon’s Drifter bike. Abandoned vehicles can be searched for useful items. Towns and buildings can be entered and searched – at great risk. All lighting is done in real time – eye adaption technology creates a real sense of dread when entering dark buildings; day and night have an impact on the experience; weather affects enemy behavior.
Brutal sandbox combat
Exemplifying true, free-form gameplay, Days Gone offers freedom to explore, strategize and play “your way.” Every challenge can be approached and completed in an almost infinite number of ways. Many different items and weapons can be crafted using items found in the field, including brutal melee weapons and traps. Customizable weapons and skills offer true freedom in how the game is played.
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.

Doesn’t the main character, Deacon when clean shaven look like Starkiller from Force Unleashed? Oh well.
