Synopsis

Days Gone is a PlayStation 4 exclusive open-world game 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. You play as Deacon St. John (Sam Witwer), a bounty hunter, traveling through vast and diverse landscapes in the high desert of the Pacific Northwest. In a narrative that begins two years after a global pandemic, Deacon is facing a brutal struggle for survival in hostile environments filled with infected humans and animals known as Freakers. The threats in Days Gone are dynamic and change with extreme weather and time of day. Trails become muddy in the rain, Freakers become stronger in the snow and more numerous at night, and day brings more ambushes from marauders. Players must consider these variables for each encounter to strategize their approach at each attempt. Many different items and weapons can be crafted using items found in the field, including brutal melee weapons and traps. Customizable weapons and skills offer true freedom in how the game is played.
