Days Gone is an upcoming post-apocalyptic zombie survival game that is being developed by SIE Bend Studio and published by Sony Interactive. It has been in the works for a while now and the developer has started revealing some new information about the game.
We know that it is going to take 30 hours to finish Days Gone and that the game will have six hours of cutscenes. Creative director and writer John Garvin mentioned that the game will take inspiration from Netflix in order to keep it interesting.
In Days Gone the player will be able to to see the events of the story in the form of threads. The different threads will be like the menu of Netflix. The following is what he had to say in this regard:
So [it’s] almost like each of the missions is an episode in a series; you can always kind of pick up and see where you are in that storyline. It was just a way of treating it the way people consume entertainment now, episodically, like through Netflix.
He mentioned that earlier builds of the game had more choices and there were even some choices in the cutscenes but the game has been more streamlined in the new builds. Binary choices have been removed in order to make the story and game simpler. The ability to make choices is still a major part of the game.
The ability to make choices remains an important part of Days Gone and focuses on gameplay earning trust and credits at the encampments, how to upgrade your bike and weapons, how to spend points on Deacon’s skill tree, which storylines to complete and in which order.
Days Gone is a major title that has been highly anticipated. There is a lot of hype around the game and we cannot wait for it to come out so that we can have a go. For more news and information regarding the game stay tuned!
