The idea of games as a service or titles with prominent multiplayer modes is a hot topic in the industry today. Some studios and publishers think that single-player games are dying, but Bend Studio is here with Days Gone to show that story-driven titles are still alive and kicking, kind of like the Freakers in Days Gone that just won’t die and go away.
Is Days Gone a multiplayer or co-op game?
Days Gone is a single-player only game that does not have a multiplayer or co-op component. Players will step into the boots of Deacon St. John alone in order to face the post-apocalyptic dangers in the Pacific Northwest.
This information came by way of a GamesBeat interview with Matt Karch, CEO of Saber Interactive. Karch was discussing World War Z but touched on the fact that he pitched a multiplayer mode to Sony that was ultimately passed on.
That may come as a bit of a downer for some gamers, but don’t include me in that group. I’m more into single-player games that are story driven than ever before and tend to avoid multiplayer titles that have a constant competitive angle to it. I’m usually all in on anything with a co-op component to it, but I’m more than happy to go it alone for a quality single-player experience.
