PlayStation and Bend Studios have released a new trailer for Days Gone, which shows a little more emotion than their recent Dev Diary series. This new trailer takes a look at the backstory, which is filled with tragedy, of Deacon St John, before we meet up with him in the game.
In a Days Gone storyline called “I Remember”, Deacon attempts to deal with his tragic past. Long before a global pandemic killed the world, the Farewell Wilderness brought together an unlikely romance between an outlaw biker, Deacon, and an extraordinary young woman, Sarah.
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.
