Now Playing: Days Gone Delayed Again - GS News Update

Between Horizon Zero Dawn, God of War, and Spider-Man, Sony's flagship console would seem fully stocked with open-world PS4-exclusive games. But with Days Gone heading to PlayStation 4 on April 26, Sony is hoping there's room for at least one more.

Days Gone puts you in the biker boots of Deacon St. John, a bounty hunter who rides a motorcycle through a collapsed world. This particular apocalypse is filled with fast-moving zombie-like creatures called Freakers that, based on the trailers, often seem to run around in hordes.

If you're ready to lock down your copy of Days Gone, you'll probably want to know what your options are. We have all the information you need to secure your pre-order below, including where it's available and how much it costs.

No Special Editions or Pre-Order Bonuses

No Caption Provided

So far Sony has only announced a standard edition for Days Gone. It might get a special edition or two as the release date approaches, but for right now, the standard edition is the only one available for pre-order.

On a similar note, no pre-order bonuses have been announced yet, either. Don't be surprised if a retailer-exclusive bonus or two pop up before launch. For example, Sony often throws in a PS4 theme and avatar for anyone who orders from the PlayStation Store.

Pre-Order Days Gone

No Caption Provided

Neither Amazon nor Best Buy are offering a $10 credit for pre-ordering Days Gone at the moment, though that could change later. If you want the best deal available right now, you can place your pre-order through Newegg, where it's $10 cheaper than everywhere else.

Honestly I think this game missed its window.

It looked great when it was first announced. Cool tech demo to show what the PS4 was capable of as far as amount of enemies on-screen at once and all that. If it came out earlier this year or even last year it may have done well. But zombies have been done to death, and at this point it's been pushed back so many times that it doesn't seem like anyone really cares anymore.

Maybe it'll still do well. But I think its ship has sailed.

I have a feeling that this may be one of Sony's weaker releases based on preview feedback. Maybe it will be a hit but it doesn't have much noise around it.

I think they are making a mistake by releasing this game very close to the remake of RE2: many people will be still buying/playing that one when Days Gone is released. They should've released it either at the end of 2018 or pushed it back maybe to April-May.

@boobytrap: A two month gap isn't really that close plus an end of the year release would hurt this game considering the low amount of marketing. Plus Sony may have other exclusives slated for that April-May window Dreams or maybe Nioh 2.

@gamingdevil800: That would've been only a one-month gap: Jan 25 vs. Feb 22. Anyways, right after my comment they announced that they indeed pushed it back to April!

In my book, this is right up there with RDR2 and Cyberpunk in anticipation. I can't wait to see how it turns out.
