The post-apocalyptic game for the PS4 will be again delayed. Fans will have to wait longer for Days Gone, announced Sony in a blog post today. And, it’s not just a couple of weeks delay, it’s two full months of waiting over other previous delays.
Days Gone Release Date
The first time Sony claimed Days Gone would be released was in the first half of 2018. However, it has been pushed back until 22 February 2019. On 19 October, Sony released a blog post stating when the game will be released. Asad Qizilbash, vice president of marketing at Sony Interactive Entertainment America stated:
“We recently decided to move the release of Days Gone from the crowded February timeframe to April 26, 2019.”
According to Qizilbash, another reason for the delay was that the game needs to be polished:
“While the studio is eager to see Days Gone in the hands of fans, Bend Studio will take the opportunity to further polish Days Gone.”
It makes sense to delay the launch, considering other triple-A open-world games (Metro Exodus, Anthem, and Crackdown 3) will be launched in February and The Division 2 will also be released on March.
Days Gone Gameplay and Pre-Order
If you haven’t seen the trailers released so far, think of Days Gone as the love child of ‘The Last of Us’ and ‘Sons of Anarchy,’ but with more survival and zombies – also, the main protagonist (Deacon St. John) is a biker.
The game will take more than 30 hours to complete the campaign, but you can continue the game even after you’re done. It’s open world, and by looking at the trailers, you will see that you can even set traps and craft items and use different strategies to achieve the end goal.
You can pre-order the game from retailers (£49.99 – $65.11), and remember – it is only available on PS4 and PS4 Pro.
