Days Gone ‘World Series: The Farewell Wilderness’ trailer; Collector’s Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition, and pre-order bonuses announced

Travel the deadly abandoned highways of the Farewell Wilderness.

Days Gone

Sony Interactive Entertainment has released the first in a series of world introduction trailers for Days Gone, as well as announced a Collector’s Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition, and pre-order bonuses.

Here is an overview of the video, via the PlayStation Blog:

Traveling the abandoned highways of the Farewell Wilderness is deadly. You’ll pass through thick forests of ponderosa and pine (filled with wolves), venture into naturally formed lava tube caves (filled with Freakers), ride up steep trails to snow-covered peaks offering spectacular vistas (mind the Marauders — and Freakers — and cougars). Riding the broken roads through Days Gone offers landscapes that change quickly and dramatically, a living, breathing world — filled with things trying to kill you.

The breathtaking natural beauty of Oregon’s High Desert, scarred by ancient volcanic activity, shaped in modern times by a dubious history of mining and logging, has long been a recreational area for outdoor enthusiasts who love to hike, camp, fish and backpack. During the pandemic that killed the world, tens of thousands of survivors fled into the wilderness not realizing that it was no safer than the homes, cabins, truck stops, saw mills and small towns they left behind.

Freakers, drawn to mass graves dug throughout the Farewell Wilderness, were everywhere. Swarms of Freakers, Hordes of Freakers — all looking to feed. Throw in marauding groups of human enemies looking to rob and pillage everyone in their path, wildlife — infected or not — starving for food, and crazed cultists terrorizing anyone who won’t join them — and our love letter to the region begins to sounds more like a eulogy.

Today, in the first of a series of three videos, we offer you a look at the Farewell Wilderness, the setting for Days Gone, a unique landscape that is as beautiful as it is dangerous.
