Prior to the game’s official release tomorrow, developer Sony Bend has released a new trailer for Days Gone detailing what players should expect when taking on a horde of Freakers in its open world third-person zombie shooter.
For those unaware, a horde is essentially a massive swarm of Freakers, in the realm of 200 to 300 strong that will chase after and hunt down Deacon St. John if they’re alerted to his presence. It’s the most interesting and intense element of Days Gone on the whole, and will be the toughest challenge you’ll face in terms of combat within the game.
Speaking about how to take on the horde, the developers suggest preparing yourself, laying traps, ensuring you’re well-equipped, and using your environment to your advantage. In doing so, you’ll be able to slowly but surely thin out the crowd and put it to rest once and for all. They also talk about ensuring you’ve got a plan A, plan B, plan C, just in case things don’t go your way right from the off.
You can check out the hordes in action down in the trailer below.
Days Gone is available exclusively on PS4 on April 26.
