 Its alot of info to follow so I thought this topic would be nice to discuss stuff until launch!  

I don't think I will be getting it, unless it reviews really well.  Then I'll check it out, once it's cheaper.

I don't know.  To me it just feels like The Last of Us without any of what made that game special.  

If it ended up having a really good story, or if the game had something else that would really interest me, then I would definitely be getting it.

Like I feel like it would be cool to play it more like a survival game.  Have like a home base that you have to keep coming back to, while surviving the freakers.  I feel like they could do a lot of cool stuff with that.  Or at least stuff i would like.  Maybe no one else here.   8)

Spoiler for Hidden:
<br>Most open-world games bombard you with an endless array of quest givers and side activities, a scattershot approach to world building that muddies the main storyline and characters. While Days Gone still offers plenty of gameplay loops to keep Deacon busy, the vast majority of scripted missions and characters are focused on the golden path. Sony Bend is setting a high bar for itself from a storytelling perspective. &quot;Imagine if this were like Uncharted,&quot; says Days Gone writer and creative director John Garvin. &quot;A 20-hour game that is very linear and it has a bunch of setpieces and it goes from beginning to end. We wanted to try to have that, but have that in an open world.&quot;<br><br>Days Gone&#39;s main storyline (which the studio says is probably closer to 30+ hours) will revolve around three subplots. The first focuses on Deacon, offering a drip-feed of revelations about who he is and what he&#39;s been through, including playable flashback sequences. The second focuses on Deacon&#39;s relationship with his tattooed biker brother, Boozer. These missions include player-driven choices that affect how Boozer feels about you, and even lead to different endings. The final storyline involves NERO, the National Emergency Response Organization that is researching the infection and its bloodthirsty carriers. Garvin hopes that having multiple avenues to explore will keep players engaged for the long haul. &quot;It&#39;s almost like having these three storylines that intertwine and the player is constantly bouncing between them,&quot; Garvin says. &quot;It&#39;s a classic novelistic technique...when the player starts getting bored with Boozer, boom, that&#39;s when this other thing&#39;s happening. And when they get bored with that, this other thing happens.&quot;<br>

This could be interesting.


Yeah I like the sound of what they're doing with the story structure. If they've got it right then it could be a game I love. I'll wait for reviews and impressions.


I'm very excited for days gone actually. I'll most likely wait till it drops in price, but it's a game I really want regardless of reviews. I really like what they showed and what they said about the game. "Dynamic" seems to be the key word for their development process. And I really like their approach.

1200 dynamic events sound crazy. I love dynamic events and them saying RDR is the game that influenced them the most is also amazing


Sounds so good. Got the collectors edition preordered cause i'm a sucker for a good statue and steelbook and other goodies.  Not sure i'll keep it though or just go with digital or standard physical
