Similar to the infected in 2013's World War Z, the hordes of Freakers in the upcoming video game Days Gone swarm the wilderness as if they are one being, spilling over each other in pursuit of survivors unlucky enough to attract their attention. Ten minutes of Days Gone gameplay footage show what the Freakers are capable of, while the announcement trailer offers an apocalyptic look at the Pacific Northwest.

"Days Gone is an open-world action-adventure game set two years after a devastating global pandemic. Play as Deacon St. John, a bounty hunter facing a brutal struggle for survival, searching for a reason to live.

At its core, Days Gone is about survivors and what makes them human: desperation, loss, madness, betrayal, friendship, brotherhood, regret, love – and hope. It’s about how even when confronted with such enormous tragedy they find a reason to live. Hope never dies."

Developed by Bend Studio, Days Gone will be released on the PlayStation 4 by Sony Interactive Entertainment America. A release date has yet to be revealed, but we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated on future announcements.
