Days Gone 4K Screens Show Off Stunning Vistas, Hungry Wolves, Enemy Camps, and More
Days Gone may take place in a dark, gritty, post-apocalyptic world, but it is, in its own way, still a very beautiful game. Sony has released a series of new 4K screenshots for the PS4-exclusive survival title, which show off the game’s natural vistas in stunning detail. We also get a peek at some less-pleasant things, including a heavily-armed enemy camp, some dangerous-looking wolves, and, of course, a hungry freaker or two. Check out the screens below (click the images for full 4K resolution).
The game is definitely looking good. Too bad about the whole zombie thing – take them out of the game, and Days Gone could be a very nice Pacific Northwest biking and hiking sim.
Developed by SIE Bend Studio (Syphon Filter, Uncharted: Golden Abyss), Days Gone is a post-apocalyptic zombie game featuring a dynamic open world that changes depending on the time of day and weather. Here’s how Sony describes the game’s story and world:
“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. Skills learned in his prior life as an outlaw biker have given Deacon a slight edge in the seemingly never-ending fight to stay alive. But will it be enough?”
