New Trailer for Days Gone Reveals Backstory for Main Character

A new trailer for upcoming title Days Gone has been uploaded by PlayStation, revealing more of the backstory of the main character, Deacon St John.

Based in the game’s section of the storyline, titled I Remember, the trailer shows an unlikely romance between Deacon as an outlaw biker and a young woman named Sarah, long before the global pandemic.

Described further by PlayStation, Sarah is gone two years later and “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”.

Days Gone developer, Bend Studio explains more about the emotion behind the story of the game on the PlayStation Blog.

Days Gone releases on 26 April on PS4. What do you think of the trailer? Let us know if you’ll be picking up this game!
