In a time where the biggest, or at least one of the biggest, differentiating factors between consoles is their exclusive titles, Horizon Zero Dawn was a big win for Sony. You can’t coast on a big win or just one successful new IP, it’s all about keeping the conveyor belt rolling and constantly releasing sequels to hits while also keeping new franchises coming out.
Sony’s next huge hit could be a game called Days Gone. It’s getting more and more hype as the release gets closer, and it looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun. This isn’t the only huge title that Sony has in the pipeline, but it’s among the most anticipated.
It has been estimated that Bend Studio started working on Days Gone right after launching Uncharted: Golden Abyss, which means this one has been in the pipeline for around 5 years, and they’re really taking their time to get it perfect. That alone is worth looking forward to, but there’s a lot more that makes this game look like it’s going to be a winner.
Here’s a ten minute look at the gameplay to give you a dose of what to expect.
The release date is still up in the air, but it’s expected to drop at some point in 2017, maybe timed to line up with the holiday season.
