Sony closed out their E3 2017 press briefing last night with a new look at Days Gone, their first-party survival horror game.
Also, it’s arguably the perfect opportunity for Days Gone to release, especially considering the plethora of zombie-related content in the entertainment field, due in large part to the popularity of The Walking Dead (as well as its companion series, Fear the Walking Dead) and a resurgence in interest in survival horror games.
During their E3 press briefing this year, Sony showed off a more intimate, stealth-oriented gameplay demo (video above) that showcases the post-apocalyptic setting, the various undead threats (including a zombie bear), and the legion of zombie hordes, as well as the central protagonist, Deacon St.
Most titles tend to focus on simulating traditional expectations of a zombie apocalypse, such as DayZ, Dying Light, and the Dead Rising franchise.
Bend Studio attempts to take the genre in a different direction with Days Gone, which appears to be something crossed between Sons of Anarchy and The Walking Dead, mixed with aspects of World War Z.
