Today, PlayStation Australia and Bend Studio reveals the emotionally-charged new Days Gone trailer, giving players a closer look at Deacon St John’s tragic backstory.
In a Days Gone storyline called “I Remember”, Deacon attempts to deal with his tragic past. Long before a global pandemic killed the world, the Farewell Wilderness brought together an unlikely romance between an outlaw biker, Deacon, and an extraordinary young woman, Sarah.
Two years later, Sarah is gone. Deacon, now a drifter and bounty hunter on the broken road, is left with only a photo to remind him of the woman he loved and the man she had helped him become. In a brief moment of peace at the church where they exchanged vows, Deacon reflects on everything he’s lost, the burnt out shell of the church, a reflection of the man he’s become – haggard, worn, and alone.
Bend Studio took to the PlayStation Blog to share more detail around the action and romance that shapes the game, Days Gone.
