Days gone, an apocalyptic shooter with arguably some of the most intense zombies ever, may have just had its release date leaked.
Australian retailer, GamesOnly, accidentally leaked the release date for the upcoming PS4 exclusive over on their website. The website states that Days Gone will release on August 22 of 2017.
We most likely won’t be getting any confirmed information about the title until this years annual E3 press conference, but considering retailers usually put the release dates as December 31 for a placeholder, this date does seem fairly legitimate.
Days Gone turned a lot of heads at last years E3 conference and with Sony's line-up looking much better than the previous year, it's going to be a glorious day for the PlayStation Nation. If you've not seem Days Gone yet, then we suggest you take a quick look at the demo below:
’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. In the demo you saw two types of Freaks – Newts, which were adolescents when infected, are opportunistic hunters, preferring to hit and run from the shadows; and a Horde. Made up of hundreds of individual Freakers, Hordes eat, move and attack together, almost as one. Some Hordes roam the highways at night, while others, like the one in the demo, have found a food source that keeps it in a single location. 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?’’
Days Gone will be a PS4 exclusive releasing sometime this year.
