Days Gone is available for the public to play for the first time in North America.
It's good to see in this video and on Twitter people are really liking Day's Gone. I think it's gonna be a great game
but of course, it's a sony exclusive.
I dont think he is being sarcastic. And btw i KNEW this was going to be great. It baffled me that people were doubting it especially because the developer was so confident that they literaaly introduced this game the first time by showcasing its gameplay. Im super hyped.
@someplay You must have read his comment wrong, I mean sure if the comma wasn’t there that sentence means something.
@Someplay: the reason i made this comment was because Sony is almost always challenged when it comes to the quality of their exclusives. Whether it's the so called "downgraded" 3 months before their games are released, Driveclub, UC4, Horizon, ect... to try to create a backlash so people won't buy the games. I've just stated a fact. Sony has the best record when it comes to Exclusives so know one should be surprised anymore. 3 months ago people were saying they don't like this about the game or that about the game, and that it looks like it's going to flop. This wasn't against Xbox or Nintendo. It's about knowing Sony = quality.
Last one to miss was The Order 1886 or Street Fighter V I guess, but that was awhile ago, and till had fun with them as rentals. I think I have never bought this many exclusives ever for a console, PS4 is destroying it.
I think you're reading way too much into his comment someplay.
@KickSpinFilter: The Order is a good game but suffered from exactly what my argument is all about. Social Media destroyed the game before it even came out. and most times gaming sites will follow the trend. 1 year later after they brought the price down for the game ($20) people bought it and said they like the game, and that they want a sequel because they want to know what happens next. . I member watching people play the game on Twitch and them saying they are really enjoying the game. then a bunch of haters kept trying to persuade the streamers that it's bad and after a while of this they slowly changed their minds, sad. Street Fighter wasn't an exclusives was it? I thought it was a timed exclusive.
@someplay Why did you attack sampsonon for his comment? It’s like no one can have any sort of opinion anymore. When I read his comment never once did I think oh he’s butthurt!
Efforts always pay off.. Good hype is building! We have a potential IP here!
'The Order is a good game but suffered from exactly what my argument is all about. Social Media destroyed the game before it even came out. and most times gaming sites will follow the trend. ' The game was shit, and that's exactly why it got destroyed. Because it was a poor game.
"The Order is a good game but suffered from exactly what my argument is all about. Social Media destroyed the game before it even came out. and most times gaming sites will follow the trend. " You mean it followed the same routine that every other exclusive does?, well I'll be damned
@andibandit: well not really. The game came out in 2015 and was the first new major exclusive for sony since the ps4 was released. at this point the ps4 and Xbox one were neck and neck in sales and the console war was raw and at a fever pitch. I remember how badly the hate for this game was by the xbox fanboys and how they worked over time to fill social media with false narratives in regards to what the game was meant to be. They, and the media, somehow thought t was supposed to be a 50+ hr game like the Witcher when the devs were going for a AAA version of The Walking dead. So at some point it became " this game isn't worth $60 even though the devs spend 30 times more on the game than The Walking Dead game. so yeah, it was a more expensive version of The Walking Dead. but it's also a better version of that style of game as well. i want to play a sequel because i liked the story, guns, characters, and the atmosphere. other games have come out since that are similar and never got the hate this game did. Until Dawn being one of them. but it ca,e out after the ps4 pulled away in sales 6 moths later.
This coming from the site that praises and demands a sequel to 'perfect' The Order 1886... sigh...
@Someplay you are so into the whole fan thing, that you are reading his comment the wrong way. And you even realize you made a mistake but... you double on it! It's just sad
The Order 1886 wasn't shit... The game was short and high priced, that was the only issue... The story was good. The characters, Setting was outstanding.. And like Samosonon said Social media destroyed the game before release and the same is being done with Days Gone . The Order 1886 deserves a 2nd chance where it can rectify their old mistakes..
@s2killinit I don't recall 1 comment where someone doubted it. Please don't include trolls. Maybe people felt burnt out on "zombies" or zombie like games. I'm with you though. Game looked like a winner from day 1. Just hope the collectors edition isn't $299.... clears throat: Mortal Kombat...
@Samsonon "at this point the ps4 and Xbox one were neck and neck in sales" ok stop making things up...the PS4 has been outselling the xbox at atleast a 2:1 ratio almost since the beginning. In fact in 2015 it was so bad for MS, they decided to stop releasing sales figures for the Xb1. The drm disaster and the power difference, gave the PS4 a great start, and exclusive games did the rest. And yeah i remember the time leading up to The Order 1886's release. The last 3 months, it was screenshots every week(Dualshockers+Abriel anyone?), and all the oohing and aahing just hyped the game to a point where anything less than perfection would be a failure.
I'm sure it will be good for the zombie genre fans but the game still doesn't look like it's that amazing. Plus with TLOU2 on the horizon, it's going to be really hard to stand out. Certainly going to be interesting. I honestly wish they would release a public demo before release.
I think Days Gone will do just fine, regardless of TLoU2 on the Horizon. We still don’t have a release date for TLoU2. DG will have time to breath, hence, why it was delayed from February to April.
if by horizon you mean 1 year apart, sure...
TLOU2 looks to be in 2020 sooo plenty of room between the two.
Tlou2 has an indeterminate launch date. This game has resident evil hype to contend with right now, so it would be more prudent to use that if you want to try and say the game is going to bomb.
LMAO @ all of you trolls You're all acting like I said it's a flop, read again...it's not. It's certainly no God of War, Spider-man, Horizon Zero Dawn, Detroit. It'll be okay at best.
@Phantom Dude, no one is trolling but you. This video is about people who have actually played the game i.e. a public demo - exactly what you're asking for. They've played it and they're saying that they like it and they will buy the game day 1! They've done what you asked, so what's the problem now? But you're not trolling right? ... yeah not at all! /s
looks like fun to me.
Days gone and tlou 2 are nothing alike besides both having zombies.
I'll just leave this here :) https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Appreciate this Mike! It was entertaining!
first infamous had a demo available to download...I played through it so many times before it came out.
Yeah I’m hyped for it I even preordered the collectors edition
“Fans Play Days Gone's Demo and Live to Talk About It“ Sounds positive. Sony should put this demo on PSN so the rest of us can try it.
It's interesting I can't remember any open world games having a demo - maybe it's just me. But yeah I agree, they should release that "Horde Mode" as a demo. I hope at the very least there will be a stand alone horde survival mode in the game.
Combat looks fun, there appears to be a wide variety of weapons and strategy particularly when approaching hordes. The weapon wheel is always a welcome sight as well. It's great that people are enjoying it.
I think Days Gone is likely going to surprise some people. It's not getting as much hype as some other exclusives, but I've always thought it was going to be great. I really like Sony Bend and I actually used to live in the area where this game is set so it's even more interesting to me in that respect. But I mostly just think Sony Bend make good games and they've clearly put a lot of work into this game.
Highly unlikely they would present bad reactions to their own game in their own advertisement
I knew it! Its gonna be awesome
My hype is reserved, it looked too cinematicish for my taste. But then again, so did gow from the trailers. If it ends up blowing my expectations out the water like gow did then even better.
It is not cinematic at all, played the demo two months ago and the game is 99% gameplay. It is very similar to MGS if you ask me gameplay/shooting wise.
The demo was 99% gameplay. The last trailer was 100% gameplay. The last walkthrough I saw a year or so ago was 90% cinematic and 10% driving. I still consider walking in a straight line for 10 minutes and hitting QTEs cinematic even though it’s not a “cutscene” per se. Like I said though, I hope I’m wrong. The dynamic horde looks great. It’s the rest of the game that I’m iffy on.
@Smoke I do not remember any QTE, only riding the bike/fighting/looting and a short cutscene.
Yeah but it all seemed very “auto-pilot” which isn’t my style. Opposed to the recent gameplay of setting up traps and baiting the horde which is my cup of tea. When the story can combine with the dynamic gameplay I will be in my zone lol.
The fact that Sony Bend are allowing the general public to go hands on with the game is a very good sign of how confident they are, and how far along the game has come in its development. I'm really glad that the public perception is changing, I really don't understand why the gaming media immediately started throwing stones when the game was first shown at E3 2016. The hypocrisy of claiming "zombie fatigue" is clearly highlighted now that Resident Evil 2 is about to release and everyone and their mother is going batshit crazy over that game (so am I tbh). There is not one single article anywhere claiming that RE2 will fail because of "OMG Zombie Fatigue". Yet when it comes to Days Gone what do we hear? #smdh
100% agree with you. And 2 million people downloaded the RE2 demo. It’s like the “Zombie fatigue leaves on a little vacation, only to return a few months later upon the release of Days Gone. It’s just silly. I think Days Gone will surprise people.
Yep because it was fabricated by articles.
Any time someone says they aren't excited for a Sony exclusive it's all a media conspiracy. It can't have anything to do with people just not liking the game...gotcha. Oh no a few articles about a particular writer/editor feeling zombie fatigue? CONSPIRACY! "Presented by Days Gone" it's an ad dude, an ad. You know the kind of thing you edit to only put out the message you want? For a community that loves to complain about the evils of big business none of you geniuses picked up on that.
Weeb - Nice way to downplay it 'Oh no a few articles' - mate, there has been nothing but hate and derision from the gaming media. They are trying to crucify it before release. Time will tell, but Archangel is right about the many articles claiming zombie (breakers BTW) fatigue. Maybe RE2 releasing and looking of a high standard has reignited interest in the genre.
Dude you're being disingenuous, it's not that the media say that they just don't like a Sony exclusive. If they did then they would at least be honest about their motivations. However, the media has said that this game is going to flop because there's too many open world games. But then they're all excited for Anthem, Metro Exodus, Far Cry New Dawn etc etc. They say there's too many Zombie games - but the same media are bugging out over RE2. Some have criticised TLOU for being too linear and "a walking simulator", and then turn round and say Days Gone is too much like TLOU - even though it's open world and has narrative choices and multiple endings. Face it. It's blatant media bias and hypocrisy. Advertising or not - the media began tearing this game apart at it's E3 2016 reveal before any of them had even played it. Now you have people who actually have played it saying it's alot of fun and a day 1 buy. Heck at E3 IGN's Alanah Pearce was trying to tear the developers apart literally the very first question she asked was "how similar will this game be to TLOU". You can see the developers physically bristling throughout the interview. https://www.youtube.com/wat... Game Informer gets exclusive access for a couple of days to Bend Studios and literally have a whole interview with the developers about why people should care about Days Gone because it will be just another "open word zombie game". Again the dev is having to defend the game, and you can see him not happy about it, it's literaly the first questin he's asked - https://www.youtube.com/wat... Same sentiment with Kotaku - https://kotaku.com/hands-on... Polygon - https://www.polygon.com/201... I could go on but you get the point, there are a few others. Now go and look at what these game sites are saying about Metro Exodus, or RE2, World War Z, or even Far Cry New Dawn for goodness sake. No talk of open world fatigue, or zombie fatigue or generic this or, crafting that or whatever. The same criticisms don't get leveled at other games with exactly the same tropes. That is media bias by very definition.
What’s are you talking about this is ign interviewing people who went hands on with days gone at pax there’s no conspiracy here so take the tin foil hat off
Wow to be truthful I’ve been caught up in the resident evil 2 hype because it’s my favorite resident evil and I can’t wait to play it but what you said is absolutely true and I can’t believe I’ve never noticed it. It does seem weird how people want to claim zombie fatigue yet are hyped to hell and back for resident evil 2 and are already asking for a remake of 3 to me that doesn’t seem like fatigue that seems like demand
You do realize this is a paid promotion by Days Gone and SIE through IGN right? I go to one video game website for other people's opinions and that's Giantbomb, and from their hands on time no one seemed positive. What Alanah Pearce says at IGN is irrelevant, especially when they ask low hanging, crap questions like "How similar to TLOU is Days Gone". It's really hard for you to claim a media conspiracy or bias when this article is bought and paid for promotional material. You're actually looking at all the details except the one that pokes holes in your own argument.
Well firstly I'd suggest you broaden your scope, going to only one media outlet is myopic. Secondly, you're deliberately avoiding other media outlets and their unfounded criticism for the game - including the ones I referenced above. For clarity, there's a difference between a conspiracy and a bias. I never said there was a conspiracy - there isn't, but there is a bias. You have no argument against the fact that every gaming media outlet is excited for RE2 - but yet when Days Gone first showed they all shouted zombie fatigue. Whats your explanation for that? What's our explanation for sites like Kotaku, Polygon et al all talking about the game is going to be a flop because we're all apparently so tired of open world zombie games? But yet they're all excited for World War Z - an open world zombie game? They are not conspiring (they just inhabit the same echo chamber, and drink the same hipster-try-hard-edgy-journali st-cool aid), but they do have a bias against Sony Exclusive titles that you don't see when compared to multiplatform equivalents. We heard the same nay sayings with God of War, Horizon, Detroit, even with Marvel's Spiderman. All games that went on to become blockbuster games, and Days Gone will be no different. Here's another one hot off the press https://comicbook.com/gamin... #smdh
@ArchangelMike Holy crap. I think, if anything, it's the opposite. There are enough console fanboys in the media that it seems to me that exclusives tend to get overrated a bit. A multiplatform game generally has to be better than an equivalent exclusive just to get the same score. I simply don't see this anti-Sony bias some of you claim exists. To me it seems like the media is by and large very positive towards Sony and its games. I think some of you are so sensitive and you can't really tolerate anything less than a consistent message of "Sony's the best, everything else is crap or, at least, not as good". I say this as someone that has always been looking forward to Days Gone. You can search my comment history and you'll see that I've expressed excitement and positivity about the game since it was first shown. Sure, I've noticed some people don't seem too excited about it, but I've also seen plenty of excitement and anticipation for the game expressed on various game sites and YouTube channels. And honestly, compared to what most multiplatform games go through these days that is a fairly mild and balanced degree of skepticism. Almost every multiplatform game that I've looked forward to had a significant amount of drama surrounding it and people trying to downplay it. So why would exclusives be off the hook? I honestly think a lot of the negativity and nitpicking in the gaming community and media is unjustified. I would love to see much of that negativity and toxicity go away. But it wouldn't be fair for it to only go away for exclusives while multiplats continue to get nitpicked to death.
Totally agree with what you said about the media bias. Unfortunately a lot of people get easily influenced to the point they dont even realise it. I said it from the beginning too. I mean I cant even understand how people didnt see it. DG is going to be great or maybe not. Thats not the point, i know Im going to love it. The media maybe not. You said it, there was no talk of zombie fatigue for State of Decay or RE or WWZ etc etc. Even games revealed after DG were not called out for 'zombie fatigue'. Maybe part of the press is just imbecile, or they feel that angle makes for easy articles...
I love Resident Evil and have played my fair share of RE games. I'm just as hyped for the RE2 remake as anyone else; but consider that there have been over 40 RE games released since 1996 and that at least one RE game has been released nearly every year since then - with some years seeing multiple different RE games being released ( https://uk.ign.com/articles... various RE games released in 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017) and yet the games media are still hyped for the RE2 Remake. After nearly 50 annualised zombie games, the games media would be justified in calling out Capcom for making "another zombie game". Heck they are making a zombie game (RE2 remake) that has already been ported, remastered, and remade numerous times already. And yet - not one of our beloved gaming sites even suggests that Capcom is being derivative, or cliched. In fact all Capcom has right now is praise for making "yet another zombie game". A zombie game that most of that fans have already played multiple times before. #smdh
There's no doubt ps4 is the number 1 gaming platform. With games like days gone it's proof that titles like this are only found on PlayStation. Tbh I don't see any game like this on PC I'm glad i chose PlayStation. At only £229 with a game now is the best time to jump in
Are you getting paid?
But his comment is correct, right?
He has a hate hard-on for the PC. He constantly brings it up out of the clear blue even when it has nothing to do with the topic at hand. I think he's trying to convince himself more than anything else. Days Gone looks good, but the PC has plenty of good games too.
Another fab PS4 exclusive!!!
Lookin like it
I read your comment and thought (upon first glance) it said “Another fake PS4 exclusive!!!” Lol. I was gonna say “You’ve gotta be kidding me” Can’t wait to live in this world & see what it has to offer.
A public demo would be nice, so gamers can judge for themselves.
This was a demo available to play for the public who were able to judge for themselves. What you're trying to say is that it would be nice if that demo would release on the Playstation Store to try out.
Correct! Didn't think I had to be that specific, but yes a demo available for download would be nice.
That’s exactly what this was
Don't know why that would be downvoted, who doesn't like a demo.
God, I am SO ready for this game!
If TLOU2 really isnt coming out till 2020 might have to give this a try. Sounds cool based on the feedback
Even if it released in 2019 they are completely different in tone and play styles. Why would it matter, enjoy both if you can.
