Sony Announces New Open-World Survival Game, Days Gone

And now, a few minutes of a totally new game by Sony Bend coming out for the PS4, Days Gone. It looks a little bit like The Last of Us, in that there are zombie-like creatures, except this game features a biker protagonist.

From the PlayStation blog:

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. In the demo you saw two types of Freaks -- Newts, which were adolescents when infected, are opportunistic hunters, preferring to hit and run from the shadows; and a Horde. Made up of hundreds of individual Freakers, Hordes eat, move and attack together, almost as one. Some Hordes roam the highways at night, while others, like the one in the demo, have found a food source that keeps it in a single location. Skills learned in his prior life as an outlaw biker have given Deacon a slight edge in the seemingly never-ending fight to stay alive. But will it be enough?

    I wonder how far into development it will be when they put early access on the PS Store and then sell off the developer a few weeks later.....

    It didn't look good. Maybe if Last of Us didn't exist and the last few seasons of Sons of Anarchy didn't suck it would look better. Also BS it's a survival game. He had unlimited ammo for that gun.

    And the award for "Best script that really makes you think about all those things, those monotonous things, all those things where repetition wasn't a good choice, things that become grating all too quickly, all of those, the things, that are bad" goes to.........

    GTA V with zombies and graphics downgrade.

    When I heard the title of this article I was optimistic...the trailer changed my mind a bit, I couldn't get past the cheesiness.

    This looked ok... and then he started shooting.... and running..... and shooting some more..... then got trapped.... and shot some more....then kept running PAST zombies that didnt grab him... then shot some more... then got stuck somewhere and taunted the thousand strong horde.

    Yeah, The Last of Us this aint. I think I will pass.
