Announced at E3 2016, Days Gone got many a zombie fan hyped with its visceral gameplay and biker-tinged World War Z feel. But fans of the zombie apocalypse that have been eagerly awaiting the release of the new PlayStation-exclusive will have to wait a bit longer.
In a blog post made today, Sony has announced that the release date has been moved from February 22, 2019, to April 26, 2019.
Per the post, Sony said:
We recently decided to move the release of Days Gone from the crowded February timeline,» Sony’s post reads. «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.
In Days Gone, players will encounter a world ravaged by a pandemic, one that has transformed millions (humans and animals alike) into zombies called «Freakers.» Located in the Pacific Northwest, players will use stealth and combat to survive in the game’s harsh open-world.
Days Gone boasts a dynamic weather system and day-night cycle that alters the behavior of the «Freakers.» Vehicles will be available to aid players as they explore the post-apocalyptic world.
There is certainly no shortage of titles to be excited about at the beginning of 2019, and hopefully, Bend Studios will use this extra time to be certain they are shipping a product that lives up to what many are anticipating.
