Currently in development by Bend Studio comes a new zombie title known as Days Gone, an open-world game which follows bounty hunter and drifter Deacon St John as he battles his way through hordes of the living dead, known here as ‘freakers’… really? Anyway, no release date was confirmed, the PlayStation E3 conference ending with a demo of Days Gone, showcasing the gameplay, such as weaponry, vehicles, scavenging for items and escape tactics, and showing Deacon becoming overwhelmed by freakers as the trailer ends. As interesting as this title is, my first impression is that it hasn’t really shown anything too new, so it remains to be seen what boundaries Days Gone will push and what new aspects it can bring to an already overcrowded genre. The gameplay footage can be viewed here.
