PlayStation 4™ – US, EU & ASIA
The upcoming zombie biker adventure game, Days Gone, from developer SIE Bend Studio showed off a new demo for the game during the Tokyo Game Show 2018. It is a lengthy video that runs for about 15 minutes featuring the protagonist, Deacon, surviving the post-apocalyptic open-world of the game.
The Creative Director of the game, John Garvin, took over the explanation of the game, while Game Director Jeff Ross controls the game.
You can check out the new trailer and gameplay video below.
【TGS 2018 GAMEPLAY & TRAILER】
Days Gone was originally announced at the 2016’s E3. And it has been confirmed that this game has been in development by SIE Bend Studio since 2015. Finally, last June, before the E3 2018 kicks off, the developer announced the official release date for the game. So, PS4 players, if you have missed it, the release date for this game is on February 22, 2019. Don’t forget to mark those dates as your survival zombie adventure begins on that day!
This game will take you to the open world of Pacific Northwest. It is an action-adventure/survival horror game that puts you in the shoes of a man named Deacon St. John. Deacon is a mercenary and motorcycle club officer. The game takes place two years after a global pandemic transpired which killed almost all of humanity.
And what’s even more disturbing is that millions of others were turned into “Freakers.” Freakers are mindless zombie-like creatures and animals that are rapidly emerging. They have become violent creatures that are seen in every corner of the Pacific Northwest.
And now that Deacon is trapped in this deadly situation, he must fight for his survival amid a zombie pandemic. And it will be very tough for him as the zombie-like humans tend to travel in fast-moving hordes just like the zombies in World War Z.
Furthermore, Sony is pitching that Days Gone is a narrative-driven game, with a heavy emphasis on the “golden path” rather than a load of side quests that are seen on other open-world games. Well, based on this and the new gameplay trailer from the TGS 2018, Days Gone is not your average everyday zombie game.

For more information about this game, you can refer to the details below.
- Open World – Using the power of PlayStation 4 and Unreal Engine 4, Days Gone offers an incredibly realistic and detailed open-world experience. Vast and hostile environments can be fully explored on the back of Deacon’s Drifter bike. Abandoned vehicles can be searched for useful items
- Brutal Sandbox Combat – Exemplifying true, free-form gameplay, Days Gone offers freedom to explore, strategize and play “your way.” Every challenge can be approached and completed in an almost infinite number of ways
- Unique Enemies – In addition to human Drifters, marauders, and militia, Deacon must face a wilderness overrun by Freakers – mindless, feral creatures, more animal than human but very much alive and quickly evolving
- Unique Setting – 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 snowfield, a lush meadow, and the next to be in the harsh desert lava fields
