Best upcoming survival games
1. Days gone
Publisher – Sony Interactive EntertainmentDeveloper – SIE Bend StudioPlatform – PS4Release date – 22 February, 2019
Days gone shows us the world where planes have fallen out of skies, trains had stopped running, turbines have shut down, where towns and homes have turned into graveyards and world went dark, where feds ran out-of-body bags. People have to go into wilderness to survive from the danger that surround them.
Those days are gone when people lived by a code, when brotherhood meant something and living meant more than surviving. Now you are a drifter, a bounty hunter and a mercenary and for you the broken road is all that left. Days gone is the most anticipated and one of the best upcoming survival games.
