Developer(s): SIE Bend Studio
Genre(s): Action-adventure, survival horror
Release: April 26, 2019
Platform(s): PlayStation 4
Length: 30 hours for the main story, some reports have mentioned 60 hours for everything



Set in the beautiful, volcanic scarred high-desert of the Pacific Northwest, Days Gone is an open-world action-adventure game where you play as Deacon St. John, a Drifter and bounty hunter who would rather risk the dangers of the broken road than live in one of the “safe” wilderness encampments. The game takes place two years after a global pandemic has killed almost everyone, but transformed millions of others into what survivors call Freakers – mindless, feral creatures, more animal than human but very much alive and quickly evolving.



Deacon can be upgraded in multiple ways.
The first is through Nano Technology which you can use to boost either your Health, Stamina or Focus.
The second is through Skill Trees which are aimed at Melee, Ranged and Survival.
Each skill tree has 15 skills to unlock. (45 skills in total)





The bike is a very important part of the game.
You will need to re-fuel if gas is low or expires.
You will need to repair it if it breaks.
If lacking repair parts you either walk it back or go on foot.
Someone from camp can fetch it for you if lost.
Weather conditions will alter the handling.

Upgrade categories include:

PaintExhaust SystemEngine
FrameFuel TankTires
SuspensionStorage SpaceNitrous









Days Gone will feature infected and non-infected animals.
The animal types known so far include - Bears, Wolves, Cougars and Crows.




Marauders
Vigilantes who are not above killing and looting to survive
Rippers
A sadistic cult who believes freakers are the future

I streamed the first couple of hours. Currently replaying on my twitch now (weshunthesun) is the channel.

So far the game is quite decidedly average. Doesn't seem to do anything better than any game before it. With only 2 hours into the game I still need to play more but so far no real wow. The motorbike handles more like a truck than a bike

That’s about what I expected, and got shit on from above because I spoke my mind.

To be honest, what other games will get nominated this year besides Sekiro, DMCV, and RE2 Remake? I can see it being a GOTY only in 2019. No way would it have been nominated last year and so forth.
We are in month 4 and none of the actual big hitters have announced any games for holidays yet, so likely there will be many games, you or I haven’t heard of yet come up as GOTY games. At E3.

Or do you think this is it. There are no new games between now and Holiday 2020?

That's true....Rocksteady can release their game this year as well but I've always seen 2019 to be a bit more barebones compared to last year and such. It'll be interesting to see if Days Gone does end up being nominated. If it does, then you can thank Sony for influencing the nomination.

No we don’t care about scores in the OT. There will be a thread for that. Get your console war bs out of the OT.
Lol lol lol. :messenger_tears_of_joy::messenger_tears_of_joy::messenger_tears_of_joy::messenger_sleeping::messenger_smiling_horns:

Don’t even.

Is this a safe space I was unaware of?

There’s not even 1 review and the only impression from a real player is mixed. That’s all it takes to get you hyped?

Nah, I still need a break from zombies setting and the game visually looks good to me but anything else it didn’t hook me at all. I’m game sharing with my friend on PS4 so if he bought it I might try it out

I’d think you wouldn’t @me anymore after getting banned last time for being so clingy.
Ohhhhhhh, so I got banned for tagging you and not for April fools trolling? Are you telling a mod to ban certain users behind our backs? I had a feeling you were behind my bans but never quite got the proof.......until now.

I need to play more honestly to form a proper opinion. I am hopeful that as the game went gold over a month ago, reviewers have actually beaten this
