After many years of curiosity regarding what Sony Bend were up to over there in Oregon, the company finally revealed its baby to the public last E3, and that was Days Gone.
Now, a lot of people walked away from last year's E3 thinking Days Gone didn't look special. They said it was "just another zombie game", or a "crappy The Last of Us", but that couldn't be further from the truth. It seems everyone forgot about the fantastic story trailer that played for Days Gone in the middle of Sony's conference - which depicted a biker gang following the outbreak of a virus. The main character wasn't a by-the-numbers gruff hero, he was an emotional, broken man who longed for the days when he used to be with his lover.
Days Gone isn't just another zombie game, it's a really nuanced, fun zombie game with a huge, beautiful open world, deep characters, and a fascinating story. It's the zombie game people have wanted and waited for for years and I think it's going to surprise a lot of people both at this year's E3 and when it releases, which should be fairly soon.
