Set to be conspicuously absent from this year’s E3 press conference, Sony have used their string of pre-E3 announcements to reveal the release date for Bend Studios’ open world biker gang zombie apocalypse game. Days Gone will be releasing for PlayStation 4 on 22nd February 2019.
Sony also took the opportunity to reveal the Rippers – a colloquialism based off the cult’s full name Rest in Peace. They’re Freaker (zombie) worshipping humans that dress like Freakers and kill anyone that isn’t a Ripper.
In addition to these new enemies are three friendlies William “Boozer” Gray (Jim Pirri) who was in the original 2016 trailer and a brotherly character to Deacon. Alkai Turner (Jonathan Joss) is then an arms dealer at Hotsprings, and Ada Tucker (DeeDee Rescher) is a former prison matron.
