Latest Trailer for Days Gone Takes Us from Wedding Bells to Survival

Take a closer look into the life of the game’s protagonist, Deacon.

By Chris Morse

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, a new trailer has been released for Day’s Gone, the upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive zombie survival game from Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Bend Studio. Why Valentine’s Day, you ask? Well, sticking with the theme of love being in the air, the game’s latest footage shines a spotlight on Deacon’s past, specifically his marriage to his wife, Sarah, as he looks back on his wedding amidst his fight for survival.

Something wedding-themed has been teased for a week or so now, with “invitations” going out to various outlets as well as an RSVP website that featured a handful of screenshots showing off the pair during a better time. This is an interesting way to promote the game’s leading man and some of his backstory, which is something we haven’t yet seen much of from earlier previews.

Naturally, the new trailer mixes in some gameplay, but the highlight of it all would certainly be the character development for Deacon, which we have been sorely lacking until now. Give the trailer a watch above and read on for more information on the release and available pre-order bonuses.

To recap the game’s 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.
