Default Days Gone is coming to PC!!

February 23rd, 2021, 18:43
Now that Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan announced finally, I can say it explicitly: Days Gone is coming for PC and earlier than you would think: This spring.

It would be nice to play this game at 60 fps, shorter loading times and with mouse and keyboard.

@danutz_plusplus beat you to the punch on that news, but yeah, I'm looking forward to a superior version as well.

2021 just keeps getting better.

As someone who doesn't play on consoles, I appreciate and hope to see more of this.

IIRC Days Gone is some zombie game.
You know, those that need no story, just grind.
If I'm right, I'm waving it goodbye already.

You're not right. Story is very much a focal point from what I saw. Sort of "Last of Us"-light in an open world.

Agree, should be in non-rpg thread, but still a topic!

No, but seriously a lot of games could fit into the rpg category, depending on how rigid your definion is.

By that definition Day's Gone is an rpg. It has abilities which you unlock, thus customize your hero, and a well defined world.

Personally, I'm not much of a gatekeeper as to what an rpg is. For what I'm concerned, I could consider Day's Gone an rpg.

You really don't need to start an RPG cultural revolution just because some dude posted his topic in the wrong forum

Funny thing is I had already posted this news, in the non-rpg section. But it seems the thread won't die.

Yes, it has a good chance to become a meme thread now!

I'm that dude. If we can consider Horizon Zero Dawn an RPG and post it in the news section as one, then we can definitely put Days Gone at that category too. Both games has similar mechanics.

So you're saying that you genuinely and unironically and without error posted this thread in GRPG intentionally?

We may consider Days Gone as a open world survival game with RPG elements, with collecting scarce resources (especially at higher difficulties) and crafting weapons, bandages, etc. with that. We have a motorcycle and fuel is hard to come by, so you can't roam to everywhere you want. Also since motors are loudy machines, they attract freakers (Days Gone's version of zombies, but not quite because they didn't rise from the dead, instead a virus turned them into that state (A future version of Covid maybe? )).

There are different camps (factions) in the game and you're doing jobs (quests) for them, some of them for the story (main quest) and some of them for additional resources (side quests). Doing jobs and killing freakers earns you XP and levels. You can unlock skill with that. Also you can upgrade your bike with the resources you earn. There are fixers in camps for that.

Apart from other survival games, the game also emphasizes on scenario and has a serious and long story underneath (much like other AAA Sony games). I don't want to spoil anything, but if you like post-apocalyptic stories you will definitely love it.
