The upcoming survival horror video game "Days Gone" is likely several months away from its launching, but a recent development may give gamers a glimpse of its gameplay — that is, if things pan out as planned.
According to a report from Alphr last month, game developer Sony Bend Studio led by Darren Chisum and Tobias Karlsson are slated to talk during the Game Developer's Conference (GDC) later this month. The two are expected to give more details on the upcoming video game and present some behind-the-scenes info on the gameplay of "Days Gone."
With the conference happening in less than two weeks, a new report from the Daily Star does not bode well for gamers who are waiting for the presentation. The report said that the Sony Bend Studio talk may not even push through after all, noting that it surprisingly disappeared on the GDC's schedule. Moreover, the report also noted that the links pertaining to the talk's schedule have been returning blank.
The game was first showcased back in the E3 2017 event, and nothing concrete followed thereafter regarding a definite release date. Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida, however, mentioned in a talk at PSX that the game will come out this year. As far as the little details that have been revealed in a short trailer at E3 2017, the game will feature reactive events, complete with day and night cycles.
Furthermore, the game will also come with all the elements that make up an apocalyptic-themed game like exploring different areas, maintaining stealth, and a myriad of ways of killing zombies. "At its core, Days Gone is about survivors and what makes them human: desperation, loss, madness, betrayal, friendship, brotherhood, regret, love – and hope," read the game's official description.
"It's about how even when confronted with such enormous tragedy they find a reason to live. Hope never dies," the description continued.
