In Days Gone, you play Deacon St. John, an Army veteran who lives as a nomadic biker.
Days Gone takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. A global pandemic has wiped out most of the world’s population and transformed many of those who remain into zombie-like creatures known as Freakers. The humans who remain unchanged struggle to survive in this harsh new world ... but some of them are just as dangerous as the Freakers.
The structure of Days Gone will be familiar to fans of adventure games. You travel from town to town. Each town has a number of problems that they ask you to solve. They reward you with new and better gear. Of course, you’re also free to wander the wilds of the Pacific Northwest, gawk at the sights, and hunt for Easter eggs.
The quests come in a handful of basic varieties - clear out a nest of Freakers, rescue a hostage, or track down a traitor. Some are stealth missions, some are combat-heavy, and some offer a choice of approaches. The most difficult and original missions are the ones in which you have to fight a whole horde of Freakers. These are tense, fast-paced, high-stakes encounters.
The gear is one of the more satisfying aspects of the game. The weapons mostly feel solid and satisfying to use. The crafting system is intuitive and rewarding. The upgrades to your motorcycle enhance the riding part of the game and can make a big difference in how it plays. For example, getting extra fuel storage helps keep you from running out of gas in the middle of nowhere - this can save you a lot of frustration.
Days Gone Will Look Even Better on PC
Days Gone is already popular for its spectacular looks. The roads, forests, and mountains of the Pacific Northwest are gorgeously rendered. The Freakers are appropriately freaky-looking, the gore is convincing, and the bike-riding looks and feels great.
The PC version can offer options that weren’t available on the Playstation.

The PC editions will also have a couple of new game modes, bike skins, and a feature called "New Game Plus".
