Days Gone is Sony’s latest IP, coming from their own Bend Studio. The studio is well recognized for their work on the Syphon Filter games and Uncharted: Golden Abyss on the PlayStation Vita. Days Gone sounds and plays a lot like another Sony IP, The Last of Us, but it allows players to navigate the post-apocalyptic zombie wasteland on a bike.
It seems that the game offers completionists a reward unlike any other. Days Gone will have the same way of tracking progression that other open world games like Red Dead Redemption 2 offers. Your complete percentage is tied to collectibles, missions, and other related tasks. However, unlike the latter, Days Gone players will have a reward for their efforts. The True Ending for the game, for 100% completion.
Days Gone – A reason for completionists!
Reddit user, TheFrogChampion, has confirmed that the game’s true ending is locked behind a 100% completion of the game. This is similar to 2015’s Arkham Knight, which also has its true ending hidden behind the player completing the game a 100%.
Without divulging spoilers, it seems that the extra effort is worth it. While the Reddit user also confirmed that the campaign lasted them a good 30 hours, this is some superb time for a game in this genre. Red Dead Redemption 2 offers nearly double of this, but the game was in development for almost a decade and had a massive team of Rockstar’s best working on it.
Days Gone is due for release on April 26th, with Mortal Kombat 11 releasing on April 23rd, this is going to be a busy week for gamers and a bad time for a lot of people’s wallets.
Days Gone follows the journey of Deacon, a former bounty hunter on the roads of Oregon surviving a new zombie virus, meeting survivors along the way and making a bunch of difficult choices that can either come back to haunt him later on his journey or help him progress.
Days Gone looks like Sony’s most ambitious IP yet, as the company is set to doing some extensive marketing on the game for quite some time now.
