Days Gone's Official Story Trailer Fills in the Blanks
We finally get a glimpse of what exactly is going on in the world of this zombie apocalypse.
By Chris Morse
Sony Interactive Entertainment has finally pulled back the curtain on the story of Days Gone in a new trailer that debuted during the PlayStation State of Play livestream event. Similar to what Nintendo does in its Nintendo Direct events, Sony took to the web and dropped a few new trailers for its upcoming releases. Among them was this story trailer for Bend Studio's upcoming biker-zombie apocalypse title.
While the last trailer teased a little bit about who Deacon is, this one shows a little bit of what he's up to as the outbreak unfolds and his wife, Sarah, is airlifted away. Our protagonist is left to fend for himself in the wilds of an increasingly dangerous world where the undead aren't the only problems he will face. Give the trailer a watch above and read on for more information on the game's upcoming release.
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.
