Have a look at the game's setting, The Farewell Wilderness, before deciding on which copy you want to pick up.

Twice-delayed upcoming biker-meets-zombies game Days Gone will finally hit store shelves this spring and we are excited to share some new details as we inch closer and closer to its April 26th release date. With just under three months to go until we can venture through this apocalyptic world, Sony has pulled back the curtain on the game's setting by kicking off a new video series showing off the environments of its main location, The Farewell Wilderness.
This wilderness is settled in and around Oregon's breathtaking High Desert and features a wide variety of different terrain, both wooded and mountainous. The scenery is in full display in the above new video, which also includes a look at and explanation for the types of varied gameplay you can expect while traveling in this world. If that wasn't enough, Playstation.Blog also revealed what to expect from the game's pre-order bonuses and collector's editions.
In terms of pre-order bonuses, you will be able to get your hands on a few goodies no matter where you place your order. When you pre-order, you will receive a code to claim a Drifter Crossbow as well as early upgrades for your bike's Nitrous, Gas Tank, and Shroud, which will no doubt come in handy as you traverse these untamed wilds. As an added bonus, pre-ordering directly from the PlayStation Store will also grant you a Days Gone Sawmill Dynamic Theme for your account, which is always a fun addition.
All that being said, what version of the game you should get? There is, of course, the standard retail edition which will grant you the above pre-order bonuses if you order early, but we also have learned of both a Digital Deluxe Edition as well as a Collector's Edition. The Digital Deluxe Edition will include a digital mini artbook, a digital soundtrack, three additional drifter bike skins, an early skill unlock, and an additional dynamic theme.
On the other hand, the Collector's Edition, retailing for $139.99, will give you the ultimate experience for this game. This version includes everything mentioned above as well as a premium collector's edition statue of the main protagonist and his bike by Gentle Giant. In addition, you will get a steelbook case, a sew-on patch, four decals, six pins, a physical copy of the game's soundtrack, and a 48-page mini artbook from Dark Horse Comics. This complete edition has everything you can think of.
Days Gone will arrive exclusively for PlayStation 4 on April 26th, 2019.
