Aside from the game’s release date announcement, Sony has also released a new trailer for the game which shows off the gameplay and new features on the PC version.
In case you’re unfamiliar, Days Gone is a third-person action game set in a post-apocalyptic open-world filled with zombie “freakers.” The game was developed by Bend Studio and was released back in April 2019 exclusively on the PS4.
As for its story, the game’s premise is described by PlayStation as:
“Days Gone is an open-world action game set in the high-desert of the Pacific Northwest two years after a mysterious global pandemic has decimated the world, killing most but transforming millions into mindless, feral creatures. Survivors live in a world where resources are scarce, violence and murder are common and Freakers roam the wilderness.
Players face this violent, new world as Deacon St. John, a bounty hunter and drifter who lives in the lawless wilderness outside the civilian encampments. Deacon survives by using skills learned before the world ended, riding for the Mongrels MC, an outlawed motorcycle club, where violence and mayhem were part of the riding the open road.
At the center of it all, Days Gone is an exploration of how any of us would react to these harsh conditions, and exploration of loss, love, friendship, revenge and desperation – learning that surviving isn’t living. For Deacon especially, it’s a struggle to ensure that hope never dies.“
Days Gone will release on May 18, 2021 for PC via a range of digital retailers, including Steam and the Epic Games Store.
