There’s certainly no end to zombie themed horror games out there. Just these last two days we’ve seen the announcement of four sequels that fit that description. Is there possibly room for one more new IP? Well we’re about to find out as Sony has announced their new horror title “Days Gone.”
“Days Gone” comes by way of Bend Studio who most recently worked on “Uncharted: Golden Abyss” but might be more famously for their “Syphon Filter” series. Here’s how Bend Studio described the game on Sony’s 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.
The game currently doesn’t have a release date, but it has an impressive trailer and demo that really shows off the massive amount of zombies you’ll be dealing with at any given point. It almost has a “World War Z” feel in terms of how big the horde is. Check it out below and let us know what you think.
