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.
