‘Days Gone’ PS4 Release Date, Xbox One Rumors & Gameplay Details We Know So Far

If you are in to zombies, mountains and open-world gameplay, you might want to read about Sony’s upcoming action-adventure game Days Gone. If it’s your first time learning about the title, then you’ve come to the right place.


Days Gone is a third-person shooter with survival and horror elements. It stars a motorcycle-riding anti-hero and set in the High Desert of the Pacific Northwest.

On the official PlayStation blogsite, SIE Bend Studio creative director Ron Allen differentiated Days Gone from the open-world games that have come before it. Usually, players draw danger to themselves. In Days Gone, there is danger in every corner of the game map.

The game is cut from the same cloth as The Last of Us and Left 4 Dead. It is filled with post-apocalyptic themes, cool weaponry and crafting. What sets it apart is its story-telling, which centers around protagonist Deacon St. John.

“It’s about the human condition. This guy’s a broken man,” Allen said, about what gamers can expect from St. John. “Because Deacon has suffered so much loss he holds on to that aspect of his past, and cherishes those relationships. It’s about him finding himself, because he no longer has his motorcycle gang.”

KTVZ caught up with the rest of the creative team behind Days Gone. One of Allen’s colleagues, Chris Reese, said players from Central Oregon would recognize some elements of the game. Meanwhile, game director Jeff Ross described Days Gone as a mix between The Walking Dead and Sons of Anarchy.

Sony introduced Days Gone during this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo back in June . The game is being developed by the Unreal Engine 4 and went into full production in January 2015.

There’s still no official word if Days Gone will be a timed-exclusive on PS4 or if it will also release on Xbox One or Microsoft Windows. Sony did promise it will be announcing more details about the game soon.

  • how ya doin?

    You’re an idiot if you don’t know how Sony does their business with exclusives. Sony Bend is owned by Sony meaning there will never be a chance of it being on Xbox. Stop being so blind.

    • justerthought

      Yeah I laughed at that naive statement as well. Sony Bend are a 1st party studio created to supply games for Sony platforms. The game will never ever be on any MS platform. I think the author is trying a bit of auto suggestion in the hope it will trigger the dev consider xbox lol. Sony pay their wages to create proper exclusive content. MS just pay corrupt bribes to 3rd party devs as we saw with Tomb Raider.

      • how ya doin?

        It’s laughable really, I saw another one of these articles. Hopefully it’s just a troll post, other wise this person is really familiar with how Sony works or even the gaming industry
