Days Gone is a new title from Bend Studios, who worked on the underrated Uncharted: Golden Abyss on PS Vita. Set in the beautiful, volcanic scarred high-desert of the Pacific Northwest, Days Gone is an open-world action-adventure game where you play as Deacon St. John, a drifter and bounty hunter who has to use his former biker days to gain an edge in a world where survival is the only option. It looks gorgeous and the sheer volume of zombies on-screen gets us excited to what the game has in store.

World War Z
Release date: 16 April 2019 (Xbox One | PS4 | PC)
Planning on getting Days Gone but still need more zombie apocalypse goodness this month? No problem – World War Z has you covered. Although it might seem a little ambitious to be releasing another zombie dystopia third-person shooter in the same month that Days Gone is releasing, it looks like WWZ will be scratching a different itch. It’s a four-player co-op shooter based in the universe of the movie, but it’s effectively one massive horde mode game designed to be enjoyed with some teammates. It appears to be focused a lot more on fast-paced, adrenalin-pumping shoot-‘em-up action rather than being a well-rounded AAA title like Days Gone is, but horde-mode shooters definitely carry a lot of mass-appeal.
