Days Gone is an open world action-adventure title developed by SIE Bend Studio, who are also known for their work on the Syphon Filter series.
The game is set in the backdrop of a deadly apocalyptic outbreak, which has ravaged the world and turned most of its population into aggressive zombie-like creatures.
SIE Bend Studio wanted to make "not only a good PC game in general" but also "a [good] port," says lead designer Eric Jensen.
