Today Sony Interactive Entertainment released a new trailer and a batch of screenshots of the upcoming open-world survival shooter Days Gone by Bend Studios.
We get another look at the love story between the protagonist of the game Deacon St. John and his better half Sarah Whitaker.
After meeting in Farewell, Oregon, the became pretty much inseparable, but of course, things rarely go as planned in this kind of games.
A post on the PlayStation Blog also provides more information.
“The wilderness is where they met, it’s where he taught her to ride, where she taught him about botany — the reason she was in the high desert in the first place. It’s where he proposed to her. It’s where, in a small church in the tiny town of Marion Forks, witnessed only by long-time friend William “Boozer” Gray, Deacon and Sarah were married.
With just a touch, Sarah Whitaker’s charm and sincerity was always able to soften Deacon, allowing him to show his awkward and tender side. He loved her so much that, a longtime member of the Mongrels MC, Deacon St. John chose to leave the MC and become a NOMAD for her so they could spend more time together. Share a life together.
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.
But in the world of Days Gone, you are never alone for very long. And in a strange way, Deacon seems to welcome the intrusion. Anything, to help him forget his broken vow: “I promise to never leave you.”
You can check out the trailer and the screenshots below.”
Days Gone will release exclusively for PS4 on April 26, 2019.
