A dilapidated world in the wake of a zombie apocalypse is nothing new. Sony themselves have treated us to a similar vision of the future in 2013’s The Last Of Us (a game that had the honor of being our very first Game of the Year). So it’s uncertain what developer Sony Bend will be able to do with their version of the rural countryside in Days Gone, their zombie survival game. Motorcycles can take you only so far.
That being said, this gameplay trailer of Days Gone has a brutality to it that is not often seen. I’m still tentatively excited to see what Bend has planned, and based on their past service (they’re responsible for the two awesome PSP Syphon Filter games), they certainly have the chops to make a compelling shooter.
