Having just celebrated its second anniversary, Days Gone has found itself back under the spotlight, but not for all the right reasons. We’re here to ask what, if anything, comes next for the PlayStation exclusive and its developer, Sony Bend Studio.
Yes. While the 1st game was way better than some people give it credit, it did have some issues. But it laid a great foundation for a 2nd game. Set up some decent story beats. And with a few gameplay improvements and expansions the sequel could be great
Did people buy it?
A big yes. Should the first game have been delayed? Yes. But why do we give a pass to games like assassin's creed when they launch filled with bugs but gave so much crap to a new franchise for the same thing?
Yeah, Days Gone was great and laid down the foundation for a sequel that would take everything the first game did and improve on it. The franchise deserves a second chance.
Course it does I've never seen a "Zombie / Infected" game with the hordes this game had and they can always keep adding to it Also that cliff hanger ending...I mean what a twist, the places they can go story wise.
My expression when I saw that was literally the exact same expression Deacon had haha. "What the f***!" That one scene alone made me wish for a sequel. Was the perfect sendoff to the first game
Love the first game would love to see a sequel the sequel would be a day one purchase for me. I also like Sam Witwer as an actor and he was really good as Deacon.
Beside it being a good game, if you 100% everything and get the ending with O'Brian it needs one. Leaving it open like that and not doing a sequel would be a dumb decision. Plus with a sequel, If Sony allows it only to be on PS5/PC they could really outdo the first one. Since Bends Studio wouldn't be getting held back by the hardware as much as they were with the PS4.
I want to see where it goes, so ya. I want to see ps5 sized hordes, and the next gen interactivity to wipe them out.
I am sure Sony will make a sequel,.. just think it is aroin 2024 or even later title.
With the extra horsepower of the PS5, it would be a huge, missed opportunity for Sony not to capitalise on this fantastic title & immersive world. The groundwork has already been laid for a sequel. Improved horde dynamics & numbers, with changes to their attacks would be welcome. The hordes could have evolved into different tribes & gained intelligence to use weapons & make traps or perhaps control vehicles. According to game director Jeff Ross, Days Gone sold more copies than all of Bend Studio's previous games combined, so it would make financial sense to take advantage, as this game was & still is, incredibly popular with the fans & not the hackneyed & tainted critics, who were out to destroy this title from the get go. I'm still hopeful, that it was Sony Bends initial pitched idea for a sequel that was turned down & that maybe Sony asked them to go back to the drawing board for an improved pitch for Days GONE 2, with a newer & fresher approach, to take full advantage of the consoles SSD capabilities.
deserves got nothing to do with it
It’s called Dying Light 2. I don’t think the world NEEDS another zombie survival game with a stereotypical white guy protagonist…but I’m sure they’ll make it anyway. Also, when you have to ask the question that tells you everything you need to know.
Seriously, can anyone go a single day, or post in the world without making some ridiculous stupid "Woke" @$$ comment about how there simply is too many white people doing this.. or that.. News flash, that shit ain't like it used to be... There has been a movement for the past 10+ years where they have been throwing mixed nationalities and genders into the main protagonist role to simply appease anyone who wants to cry this silly narrative. There has been a shit ton of games coming out over the past 2 decades that have protagonists who don't even remotely fit this narrative. Grand Theft Auto has had SEVERAL main protagonists not be White males over the past several releases. Many RPGs have allowed you to choose whatever color / gender you want to be for a LONG TIME, and not limited to a freaking main line Assassins Creed Title making the main Protagnoist a Female VIKING.. Spiderman: Miles Morales checks off the Black guy / Puerto Rican Heritage Protagonist off the checklist.. Watch Dogs 2: Black Protagonist Watch Dogs: Legion BE LITERALLY ANYONE YOU WANT Fallout: Any color, sex you desire Life is Strange 1: Female Lead Life is Strange 2: Hispanic Children Leads Life is Strange 3: True Colors - Female Asian / Oceanic / Islander Protagonist Tell Me Why: Female Lead, and Transgender Male Lead... Shall I continue? Sheesh IT seems like some people just get off on starting on towards making something about race and crap. I mean come the heck on. I mean when will it be okay to put a white person into a role again without it not being "woke enough" anymore? Ever? Are we simply to wash away any trace of White Males and act like they dont exist? Is that when it will finally be enough that it is embarrassing to be a White Male? Relax... this isn't that serious.. So many people can make games, Indies.. and so many people can reach out to everyone on this new medium.. and IT isn't simply full of White Males dominating any role and hasn't been for a long time.
Stop saying “deserve”. No dev is entitled to outside funding or publishing support. I’m thrilled that the Snyder cut exists, but it was never entitled to exist. Zach made a deal with a studio of of assholes. And Bend studios is trying to pitch game ideas to a publisher that might have the strongest track record of any AAA publisher. Why would Bend deserve Sony’s support?
Definitely a yes from me. Recently played & finished it on ps5 and loved it. Sure there were some things that still needed attention in there but overall a great experience. If they do decide not to do a sequel then how about a remastered ps5 version. I think it would sell well still and maybe more than anticipated as the sceptics of the original who didn't try/buy it & went off scathing reviews instead may well be pleasantly surprised by it.
seeing as they patched in 60 FPS, I don't think it needs one. Looks beautiful, especially for a UE game. Sequel needs to happen though. I do hope it would have some SIDE co-op stuff, a la GoT. I would love to play as Boozer with detachable tools for his arm with my mates. Roam the countryside in a gang lookin for massive hordes with your friends. Throw 4 player co-op in the mix with that organic gameplay. Hot damn - I'll be driving my Harley through an enemy camp with a buddy on the back peppering a couple ravagers luring them into mauling the entire motely crew!
