Days Gone in a nutshell

Days Gone is a third-person action game set in a post-apocalyptic world. The player steps into the shoes of an ex-member of a motorcycle gang, Deacon St. John. You will assume his role almost two years after the outbreak of a virus. Such an extended period of time caused the known world to completely evaporate, but it is still too early to create the foundations of a new world.

The creators stress that the player's task will be to survive in a dangerous world and deal with the hero's trauma. You will not have to play the role of a classical hero, your purpose within this world is not to look for a cure or to save it.

During the game, you will also discover the story of the hero, you will see flashbacks to the years before the apocalypse many times. Thanks to this, you will be able to empathize with the hero and make better choices.

What is the age rating of Days Gone?

The European rating agency PEGI rated the production of the Bend Studio as intended only for adult audiences (18+ rating) - Days Gone Guide

The European rating agency PEGI rated the production of the Bend Studio as intended only for adult audiences (18+ rating). The American-Canadian ESRB organization assigned the M-rating to the game (for Mature audiences). Over the course of the game, you can often witness brutal or repulsive scenes. Vulgar language is also used quite frequently.

Can you kill children in Days Gone?

The answer to this question is not that simple - Days Gone Guide

The answer to this question is not that simple. The main character encounters monsters called newts while on his journey. Their appearance suggests that the transformation into a Freaker occurred when the person was still a child. At no point in the game, however, is there a clear statement that we are dealing with, e.g. zombie-children. The newts we encounter are, of course, hostile to Deacon, and they can attack him and will try to kill him if he does not decide to defend against them.

Does Days Gone have multiple endings?

No, Days Gone has only one main ending. Initially, it had several endings, depending on the choices made by the player during the game. However, after some time developers have abandoned this idea and the whole main storyline has become a linear story.

Shortly after completing the main storyline, the player can unlock a secret ending. Check the Secret ending page to learn about the requirements. To get it, you have to complete a short quest during which Deacon will meet with one of the NPCs.

Does Days Gone feature moral choices?

No, developers of Days Gone have abandoned the idea of making moral choices in the game. Developers insisted that lead character would have a better outcome after linear story. All main missions in the game have a linear structure.

In Days Gone only some minor choices may occur. After completing one of the story missions Deacon can decide to who he's going to deliver medicines. In addition, subsequent survivors can be sent to different camps and for that you may receive various benefits. Choices in Days Gone do not affect the plot of the game, which has a linear structure.

How long is Days Gone?

The passage of the main story of the game should take about 30 hours. Time spent with the game can significantly extend due to various additional missions, exploration of the world, battles with hordes or searching for secrets. The game world in Days Gone consists of six vast regions and each of them has a lot of attractions to discover.

Why did I fail a mission?

Some quests in Days Gone have a very linear character and you can fail them in several ways that do not result in the death of the main hero - Days Gone Guide

Some quests in Days Gone have a very linear character and you can fail them in several ways that do not result in the death of the main hero:

  1. A mission may be interrupted if you move beyond its designated zone. The game should display a warning on your screen, which will state that you are leaving the mission area.
  2. The same applies to situations in which you have to follow someone (on foot or on a motorcycle). You cannot be too far away from such a person.
  3. A mission can also end in failure if the game requires that you act without being detected. Should any opponents be alerted to Deacon's presence, you will fail the mission.

Does Days Gone have an online/co-op mode?

Days Gone is a production intended only for one player - Days Gone Guide

Days Gone is a production intended only for one player. The creators wanted each player to face the dangerous world as lonely as the main character. Therefore, the game does not have an online or a co-op mode.

In Days Gone, you will find a variety of opponents - Days Gone Guide

In Days Gone, you will find a variety of opponents. Each of them will want to deprive you of your life. It is a dangerous world, and you can only count on yourself and your weapon.

In Days Gone, you will face the following types of enemies:

  1. Human opponents - they are found mainly in cities, in destroyed buildings. Living enemies can use firearms and/or melee weapons.
  2. Freakers - these are mutated/infected people who move around in herds. If you do not have to, do not attack them, just run. Maybe one zombie is not a threat to you, but a dozen freakers will deprive you of your life in an instant. Freakers appear in different varieties. These can be, among other types, zombie-children (called newts) or individuals characterized by a much greater resistance to the attacks of your hero. Freakers can also travel around the world in Hordes, which include from 50 to 500 monsters.

As the Days Gone game has a large, open world, there is a quick travel feature available - Days Gone Guide

As the Days Gone game has a large, open world, there is a quick travel feature available. However, in order to unlock it, you must reach a friendly encampment or first clear out the location where you want to quick travel to of any opponents. Once captured, the place will not be re-settled by enemies.

The chapter titled How to use quick travel? contains all the necessary information about the circumstances of the use of this function, and the requirements that need to be met to use it successfully.

Weapons & Combat

In the Days Gone game, you can have many different weapons at your disposal at any given moment. The game divides them into melee weapons (knife, baseball bat) and firearms (pistols, automatic and sniper rifles, crossbows and shotguns). The weapons you find differ in the state of destruction and statistics. You can upgrade them and change them, e.g. by attaching a suppressor. More information about the available weapons and ways of using them can be found in the chapter titled Weapons & Combat.

Character progression/skills

In Days Gone, you will find three skill trees. They are divided into trees connected to melee combat, ranged combat, and survival.

Can you ride down ladders in Days Gone?

Unfortunately, no, Days Gone does not provide such a possibility - Days Gone Guide

Unfortunately, no, Days Gone does not provide such a possibility. You have to descend in a traditional fashion even if Deacon is forced to, e.g. climb down from a very tall lookout tower.

Can Deacon swim?

No, the main character cannot swim. After entering deep water, a bar will be displayed on your screen, and if you do not reach the shore quickly enough, the hero will unfortunately drown. This obstacle does not apply to rivers and very shallow reservoirs, where the water only reaches the ankles or the waist of the character.

Which difficulty level should you choose?

We recommend playing the campaign on the normal or high difficulty level. Days Gone contains some survival elements (you must, e.g. look around for supplies and use medication to restore Deacon to full health), but it is not a very demanding production after all.

It is worth noting that the difficulty level is not related to any of the trophies available in the game. You can freely change it during the playthrough or you can simply choose the low difficulty level if you only wish to get the platinum trophy as soon as possible.

Why it is impossible kill the soldiers or scientists?

During your gameplay of Days Gone you can meet soldiers in yellow suits and scientists in white suits - Days Gone Guide

During your gameplay of Days Gone you can meet soldiers in yellow suits and scientists in white suits. Deacon can't kill them. This is not a game bug, but simply an "artificial rule", that derives from story and plot limitations. Do not attempt to use firearms or explosives. Playing missions with this type of opponents makes you act in stealth - help yourself by identifying enemies with binoculars, hide a lot and move in the bushes. In case of danger and detection, you can also help yourself with rocks and other items to distract enemies.

How to bypass the blockade in the tunnel?

Traveling to neighboring areas of the world map may require to drive through the tunnel on the motorcycle - Days Gone Guide

Traveling to neighboring areas of the world map may require to drive through the tunnel on the motorcycle. The road through the tunnel can be blocked, but do not give up and look for another way. The solution to this problem is very simple - find vehicles that hero may push to unlock the way. Just hold Square and wait for the vehicle to roll to make way to another location. However, don't be surprised by the Freakers when you unlock the passage for your motorcycle.

Can Deacon crawl?

By default crawling is an unavailable in Days Gone - Days Gone Guide

By default crawling is an unavailable in Days Gone. When you push circle the main character can only sit down and sneak up in this position. Deacon will lie down on the ground and begin to crawl only in the places planned by the authors. In the example from the above image one of these places is the barricade located on the outskirts of the enemy camp. Deacon can squeeze under it, and automatically performs this operation after you get close enough.

Can I drive a Golf cart?

This is, unfortunately, impossible - Days Gone Guide

This is, unfortunately, impossible. Golf cart is owned by Tucker from Hot Springs camp. The game will allow you to ride a Golf cart as a passenger. Tucker will drive, traveling on an scripted route.

Does Days Gone have a Photo Mode?

Yes, Days Gone has a very comprehensive Photo Mode - Days Gone Guide

Yes, Days Gone has a very comprehensive Photo Mode. You can turn it on after pausing the game and selecting the Photo Mode option from the pause menu. The photo mode will be temporarily disabled while watching cutscenes or during the display of animations that are impossible to block.

You can switch between the main tabs of the photo mode by using the L1 and R1 buttons. Additionally, pressing the X button displays more advanced settings. Before you take a picture, press the triangle button to hide the user interface.

Why has the time stopped?

This is not the result of a game error, but rather the effect of a conscious decision made by the developers - Days Gone Guide

This is not the result of a game error, but rather the effect of a conscious decision made by the developers. Some of the storyline missions in Days Gone play out at a certain time of day (e.g. at night or in the morning). The game stops the in-game clock in such situations, in order to prevent the time of day from changing should you take a long time to complete a given mission. After the action is concluded, the in-game clock will once again begin measuring time correctly.

Can important characters die?

So, the answer is yes - Days Gone Guide

So, the answer is yes! Important characters and NPCs who accompany Deacon can die in Days Gone during some missions. Death of allies causes mission failure and will restore you to the previous checkpoint (control point).

Pay attention to the actions of your allies and do not postpone in helping them when they, for example, are fighting with one of the monsters. We inform you about all dangerous moments and circumstances on the following page of our walkthrough in the Story & Campaign section.

Starting Tips

The chapter of our game guide titled Starting tips offers various hints on the most important gameplay mechanics. The information contained in it can help you avoid making any serious mistakes at the beginning of the game. Here are some of the topics covered by the chapter in question:

  1. Take care of your motorcycle -Deacon's machine should be repaired regularly in order to avoid any unpleasant surprises. Additionally, do not forget about looking around for canisters and petrol dispensers.
  2. Look around for better varieties of firearms - You can get new, ordinary weapons by looting dead opponents. Higher quality guns can, in turn, be purchased from merchants that live in the encampments.
  3. Unlock the Focused Shot skill and use it in combat - Focused Shot is, in other words, a slow-motion mode, which can be utilized while aiming. It is especially useful when trying to eliminate enemies with single shots to the head.
  4. Initially, avoid fights against Hordes - Facing a Horde is a serious challenge for an undeveloped character. You must set aside attacking Hordes for later. At the start of the game, focus on improving your stats and unlocking important skills. Until you have made your hero stronger, use your bike to avoid confrontations with any encountered Hordes.
  5. Search police cars and ambulances - Looting a police car is a chance to come across a box of ammunition. Looting an ambulance gives you the opportunity to discover a first aid kit.
  6. Try to eliminate enemies from hiding - Rely on stealth as much as the game allows you to. You can easily hide from opponents, e.g. in tall grass, and also efficiently eliminate them by stabbing them in the back.
  7. Visit NERO checkpoints to permanently increase your hero's stats - At every NERO checkpoint, you can find an Injector that will allow you to increase Deacon's health, stamina, or focus by 1 point.
  8. Deacon's health bar does not regenerate automatically - You must heal up the main character by relying on bandages and first aid kits. It is worth mentioning, that you can make bandages yourself.
  9. Save the game regularly - You can create both manual and quick saves. However, you should be aware, that you can only save the game if Deacon is located either near the motorcycle or by a bed (e.g. in an encampment).

Will Days Gone be available on PC?

No, Days Gone is an exclusive on the PlayStation 4 console. There are no plans to release the title on other gaming platforms like PC, Xbox One, or Switch. It's worth noting that Days Gone works on all PS4 models, although the PlayStation 4 Pro console offers the best graphics and frame rate.

Can you travel with a biker gang in Days Gone?

Unfortunately, no - Days Gone Guide

Unfortunately, no. Deacon was formerly a member of the biker gang, but in the post-apocalyptic world of Days Gone he spends most of the time by traveling alone. Other motorcyclists (including Boozer and Ricky) appear mainly during the completion of individual missions. In such circumstances, the game may force you to travel with them to quest locations or even eliminating them if they become hostile. Other people on motorcycles can also appear in cut-scenes (example in the picture).
