PS4 Exclusive Days Gone Gets New Gameplay Showing Hundreds of Enemies; Runs at "Solid" 30 FPS

Days Gone gets new gameplay running on PS4 Pro, in which you can enjoy watching the player eaten alive by freakers, over and over.

June 13, 2018

During the PlayStation Live coverage from E3 2018 in Los Angeles, Sony Interactive Entertainment Bend Studios showcased some more gameplay of Days Gone.

We get to see a horde of about 250 freakers, and the player trying a few different approaches to the defeat them, quite clumsily.

At the very least we get to see what not to do when you have hundreds of enemies trying to kill you, and in this case, managing. Several times. To be fair, though, many underestimate how hard it is to play something new for the first time while talking at the same time.

Interestingly, we get to see the survival wheel that includes weapons and various tools, including explosive traps.


We learn that the lighting is almost final, and the game is being optimized in terms of performance. The current version runs at “solid” 30 frames-per-second both on PS4 Pro (which is the platforms we’re seeing) and also on standard PS4.

If you want to see more, you can also enjoy another gameplay clip from yesterday,  the latest trailer and some new screenshots. You can also see some gameplay from E3 2017, another playthrough showing a different path, and yet another, showing a completely different approach to the same situation.

Days Gone is in development at Sony Interactive Entertainment Bend Studio and will be released exclusively for PS4 on February 22nd, 2019.
