Sony’s upcoming open-world action adventure game Days Gone has everything you’d want in a zombie video game and more. Zombies – Check. Setting Deadly Traps – Check. Hordes of Zombies that are Fast – Check. Zombie Bears – Check. That’s right kiddos, zombie bears. Your move “The Walking Dead.”
During PlayStation’s E3 2017 press conference, Sony unleashed a 5-minute-long gameplay trailer for their new zombie horror game Days Gone. In what appears to be a “The Walking Dead” meets “Sons of Anarchy” alternate universe, you are Deacon St. John, a motorcycle club member thrust into a post-apocalyptic zombie world. You’ll try to survive the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest as fellow humans, zombies which are called “Freakers” in the game, and zombie bears all try to kill you.
The game features day/night cycles, which makes the undead zombies stronger at night and weaker during the day. There is also variable weather that will affect your journey. You’ll need to utilize stealth and traps like using dynamite to unleash 40 freakers on an enemy camp to ensure that you survive the zombie apocalypse.
Sony announced Days Gone at last year’s E3, and it has been in development since 2015 by SIE Bend Studio. No launch date was given for Days Gone so you’ll have to wait until at least early 2018 until you are devoured by a zombie bear.
