E3 2016: Days Gone – Gameplay and Details


In my opinion, one of the best games to be announced at the E3 2016 Sony press conference was Days Gone. From the talented people at Sony Bend Studios comes a frightening open-world action game. Check out all the details and both the trailer and gameplay videos, then let us know what you think about this game in our forums.

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, a 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.
Developed by Bend Studio, Days Gone is in development exclusively for the PlayStation 4.


  • Compelling Story – At its core, Days Gone is about loss and hope. You play as Deacon St. John, a Drifter and bounty
    hunter whose prior life as an outlaw biker helps him survive the brutal world created in the aftermath of a global
    pandemic. Broken by a deep and personal loss, Deacon fights to survive while struggling to find a reason to live. Hope
    never dies.
  • Open World – Using the power of PlayStation 4 and Unreal Engine 4, Days Gone delivers an incredibly realistic and
    detailed open world experience. Vast and hostile environments can be fully explored on the back of Deacon’s Drifter
    bike. Ride the open world.
  • Brutal Sandbox Combat – Exemplifying true, free-form gameplay, Days Gone offers freedom to explore, strategize
    and play “your way” using customizable weapons and skills, as well as brutal melee weapons and traps
