Get Ready to Ride into the Zombie Apocalypse
Ever wonder if the hit TV shows, The Walking Dead and Sons of Anarchy, merged together to make a bikers vs zombie world? Well, the upcoming Playstation 4 exclusive, Days Gone, is giving us exactly that. After feasting our eyes on some intense gameplay of a lone protagonist fending off a seemingly endless horde of running (yes, they run) zombies, there is now updated information on the characters and creatures of the apocalyptic world of Days Gone.
John Garvin, the Creative Director of Bend Studios, gets into deal to prepare us for the extremely dangerous creatures players will face. According to him, the zombies in this world are called Freakers, mindless and feral beasts that are hungry for human survivors. There are two kinds of Freakers: the Newts and the Hordes. Once again explained by Garvin, Newts are the hunter types that hunt from the shadows, while Hordes are Freakers that hunt in enormous packs. On the up side, players are given a tough protagonist that they will control.
The main protagonist is named Deacon St. John, a drifter, bounty hunter, and bad ass biker. Not much is known about his backstory, but this is the guy who will help players survive in the upcoming zombie apocalypse. This is everything that has been revealed about Days Gone, so far. Playstation players, get ready.
