It’s always great to see new franchises debut on the big stage of E3, and that’s especially true when the game looks as good as Days Gone. The game comes from Syphon Filter developer Sony Bend.
The action-adventure game takes place in the Pacific Northwest and tells the story of a bounty hunter named Deacon St. John, who must survive on a planet that’s been wiped of humanity after a global disaster brings about the end of the world as we know it. Now millions have been transformed into “Freakers,” zombie-like creatures that would like nothing more than to feed on Deacon’s corpse. As the bounty hunter, you’ll have to fight massive hordes of Freakers in order to survive.

Days Gone Release Date
Days Gone has been delayed yet again. Sony has announced that the title has been delayed in an effort to “further polish” the game. Some also believe that its delay may be attributed to how busy its original release week (the week of February 22) was. Anthem, Crackdown 3, and Metro Exodus are all set to release during that time. It is now set to release on April 26, 2019.
