Days Gone Release Date, Trailers And Gameplay News

Days Gone is a PS4-exclusive, open-world survival adventure. Here's what we know about the Days Gone release date and gameplay, along with the latest trailers.

During Sony's 2016 E3 PlayStation conference, a brand new original game was announced: Days Gone. While it might look like any other zombie game on the surface, huge hordes and multiple ways to play mean that Days Gone offers something slightly different for PS4 players.

Here's everything you need to know, from the release date to gameplay details and the latest trailers. 

When will Days Gone be released?
Sony originally claimed that Days Gone would be released in the first half of 2018, but, like most first-party games, has been delayed - several times in fact. It was pushed back until 22 February 2019, but Sony announced in October 2018 that it had to be pushed back again, but this time only by a few weeks.

The new release date for Days Gone is 26 April 2019 with Sony claiming the delay is due to the game needing a little more polish. 

Can I pre-order Days Gone?
With that being said, you can already pre-order Days Gone from various retailers including Game where it costs £49.99. 

And in case you skipped past the intro and didn't already know, it's ONLY available on PS4 (and PS4 Pro). 

Days Gone gameplay news
Days Gone is set in the post-apocalyptic Pacific Northwest. It's probably easiest to think of it as the game you'd get if you crossed The Last of Us with Sons of Anarchy, since the main protagonist, Deacon St. John, is a biker. 
The story takes place two years after a "global pandemic has killed almost everyone, but transformed millions of others into what survivors call Freakers". A bit like zombies, but not - they're feral, more animal than human, alive and "quickly evolving".

But, according to director John Garvin, freakers aren't the only things you need to worry about; less-than-friendly humans will also cross your path throughout the game. In fact, Garvin claims that humans play a significant role in the game, whether friend or foe. It could be a similar implementation to that of State of Decay 2, where you can opt to help other survivors you come across, or leave them and make an enemy of them. 

What we do know is that there will be Rippers - humans that worship Freakers - roaming the open world, attacking any survivors they come across. You'll also come across camps of Rippers on your travels and, as they worship Freakers, they won't fight back if you *ahem* lead a horde into their camp. 

Aside from Ripper camps, there will be towns and cities full of human settlements, including a city of over 800 residents - though Garvin didn't go into detail about whether all 800 NPCs will be in the game, or whether it's lore, but the huge hordes of zombies seen in gameplay trailers make us think it might be the latter. 

Garvin also revealed that there are no difficulty options, and there will be no "easy mode" - an interesting approach to a single-player game and something not seen very often in gaming. "The game itself is already pretty hard," said Garvin. "It's not very good when it's easy. It's a way more exciting game [when it's hard], it's a lot of fun, and kind of speaks to the fantasy of the apocalypse by being a challenge. We give too much away for free by having an easy mode". 

While it's an interesting move that'll put all players on a level playing field, not all players will be die-hard gamers - some may want to play the game for the story, and if they find it too hard, they may stop playing altogether. 

In terms of length, it'll apparently take over 30 hours to complete the campaign, and you'll be able to keep playing once you're done. PS4 Pro users can look forward to 4K@30fps support via checkerboard. 

The open-world nature of the game is exciting enough, but the gameplay demo video below also shows how you'll be able to set traps and craft - as well as the ability to play in different ways to achieve the same end goal.

Days Gone trailers and gameplay videos
The original demo below shows two types of Freaks: Newts and Hordes. The former were young when infected and are "opportunistic hunters" while the latter are large groups which eat, move and attack as one.

At E3 2017, a seven-minute gameplay walkthrough gave a much better idea of what it's like to move through the world and use items tactically:

Then, in the run-up to E3 2018, Sony released a new trailer giving us a better look at some of our allies and enemies in Days Gone, along with confirming the 2019 release date.

Dell XPS 13 9380 (2019) Review

Dell's flagship laptop returns to us in 2019 with refreshed specs, a brand new webcam design and a cheaper model. We review the XPS 13 9380 in full.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 (2019)?
The XPS 13 for 2019 ticks all the boxes. It looks great, the build quality is excellent, it’s nice and portable and has a wide range of specs to choose from.
While not a massive upgrade from last year's model, it’s had some solid refinement including getting the webcam back into the top bezel and also introduces a more affordable Core i3 edition.

This smart scale from iHealth offers detailed body composition measurements, from BMI to visceral fat rating. Find out what we think in our iHealth Core review.
Should I Buy The iHealth Core? We like the way that the Core and Lite scales interact with the other iHealth products, and the Core offers a bunch of useful metrics with which to monitor your health.

Huawei P30 Pro Release Date, Price & Specs Rumours

Huawei's MWC press conference didn't include an announcement of the P30 range. Instead, it will hold a launch event in Paris at the end of March. We round up rumours, speculation and more on the new Huawei line-up, including the expected P30 release date, price and specifications.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.
