Everyone knows that the best way to do horror is to mix idyllic scenery with deadly enemies, and Days Gone is doing exactly that in its key art. The image shows protagonist Deacon St John in the centre, chilling out next to his motorcycle, as the sprawling Oregon countryside surrounds him. But lying in front of him are three dead bodies, and behind him… Well, this ain’t no place for a picnic.
It’s a nice piece of art that pretty much encapsulates everything that the game is about: motorcycles, murder, and gigantic hordes of undead enemies. It’ll be interesting to see if this ends up being used for the box art, or if the platform holder has other plans for the cover. The exclusive’s actually not that far away now: it’s due out on 22nd February.
