Days Gone is now available to preload on Steam in anticipation of its official launch date on May 18, 2021. The action-adventure survival game in a post-apocalyptic open-world environment from Bend Studio and Sony Interactive Entertainment was initially released on PlayStation 4 in April of 2019. The story follows Deacon St. John, a drifter and bounty hunter just trying to survive in a world where there’s danger around every corner.
The initial launch of Days Gone drew in some mixed criticism, averaging a mediocre score on most gaming review outlets, mostly due to an underwhelming world design. The reviews didn’t hinder its sales, though, as it was a best-selling title in its first week’s release in the United Kingdom.
For many players, the port to PC may be their first experience slaying zombies in Days Gone. According to a post on the official PlayStation Blog, the team has been hard at work trying to bring a unique experience to players on PC, which includes some added features. There’s a new super-resolution photo mode, allowing players to share their up close and personal zombie pictures with the world on social media.
