Days Gone (Bend Studio) PS4 exclusive - 04/26/2019

I searched for a thread for this game and could not find it.

This game is being released next month and I have a pre-order for it.

Anybody else getting this?



80 minutes of Gameplay

I am definitely interested!! Sucks there is no online component but I think it could possibly wind up in the top 10 games of 2019. Will see once it is released how it holds up!!

I have it preordered. The previews Iíve read have all been positive. It sounds like the structure is as paint-by-numbers AAA open world game as it gets, but itís supposed to be fun even if it is routine in a lot of ways.

Their booth at PAX South boasted a giant grizzly bear (which I swear was the bald-headed/butt bear from The Great Outdoors) and a bunch of dismembered and dis-emboweled bodies hanging from a ranch-like entrance. Very strange ambiance... somewhere between Walking Dead, Red Dead Redemption, and Far Cry.

Looks cool but also reminds me somewhat of the gameplay in Friday the 13th. Pick up these items and use them to repair other stuff. I wonder how big the map is?

This is the kind of game that lives or dies based on how satisfying the actual shooting is. Otherwise it looks kind of like a non-distinct version of Just Cause with Zombies.

I have the Collector's Edition pre-ordered. Not sure I will keep the pre-order, but that statue sure does look nice. It's $139.99 ($112 with GCU).

I was actually thinking the same thing. It sort've feels like this one is being sent out to die. I mean Bend has been working on this thing for ages.

Early word from people who have played it isn't very strong.

I think it's going to be just that: decent. It's in the unfortunate position of being a ps4 exclusive in a time when most/all other exclusives have been massive successes.

I think it was cool, for some reason, to shit on this game at first, but I'm hearing more positive word of mouth lately. It's not another God of War or Horizon, but it sounds like it's at least competent.

I'm looking forward to it.

Huge WaPo interview today with the Creative Director of Bend Studios. Sounds pretty impressive from a technical standpoint. Hope the game isnít too hard for me.

FWIW, there are multiple difficulty levels (despite reports from last year to the contrary), and there are no difficulty-specific trophies, so you could go Easy and still experience everything there is.

The trophy list looks really easy, too easy in fact. There's must be a catch, right?

You are right. We have been spoiled by some of the recent PS4 exclusives so what I meant to say is that I hope it doesn't suck.

Yeah, I think the early word of mouth is comparing it more to the typical PS4-exclusive game rather than your average console game. The bar there is definitely set unrealistically high.

Yeah this game has the unenviable task of following the murderer's row of Uncharted 4, Uncharted Lost Legacy, Horizon, God of War and Spiderman. I feel that this will be a really solid title that will disappoint just because its following those. I hope it does well though so we can hopefully finally get a new Syphon Filter.

Where are these early impressions? I couldn't find anything with a Google search.

I don't how reliable these early impressions are but these are the ones I found done back in March.

Lots of people got to play it at PAX, most of them saying the issue were sluggish controls.
Might be something that could get fixed.

Re: Days Gone (Bend Studio) PS4 exclusive - 04/26/2019

I have a couple of game reviewers on my PSN friends list. Judging from how most of them have already moved on from their review copies, the game is either incredibly short or just not good.
