Days Gone was originally planned for release sometime this year, but was pushed to 2019 in March. Sony and Bend Studio announced Days Gone in the E3 of 2016. The game is set in the high desert of the Pacific Northwest and players will take on the role of Deacon St. John, a mercenary and motorcycle club officer fighting for survival amid a zombie pandemic. Days Gone has been in development since it began on 2015.
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.
DEACON ST. JOHN
Play as Deacon St. John, a bounty hunter facing a brutal struggle for survival, searching for a reason to live.
In addition to human drifters, marauders, and other groups, Deacon must face a wilderness overrun by Freakers – mindless, feral creatures, more animal than human but very much alive and quickly evolving. Freakers have needs, habits and behaviors that the player can learn and adapt to.
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.”
