Having previously cut their teeth with the Syphon Filter series, Bend Studio went on to work on spin-off titles to other PlayStation franchises – Resistance: Retribution, Uncharted: Golden Abyss – before eventually moving back to their own original game. Days Gone is that game, setting players off in a post-apocalyptic, zombie-filled rendition of Oregon in search of your missing wife. Your bike is your best friend in Days Gone, which can be upgraded in addition to Deacon, the player character himself. Hone your skills and fight the hordes in the ravaged open world landscapes of Days Gone.
Horizon Zero Dawn
Horizon: Zero Dawn is a future-set open world game from the makers of Killzone, which places you in the role of Aloy on her quest for the truth. The catch is that this luscious post-apocalypse just so happens to be populated by robot dinosaurs, some of which can be tamed and then used to your advantage. Every large robot beast you come across will present its own challenge, with those that can fly, dig and charge at you all offering up a healthy challenge. Set traps, shoot arrows and do anything else you’ll need to in order to survive.
The legendary wall-crawler returns in a fully fledged open world game that makes the city of New York your playground. Insomniac Games’ set out to tell an entirely original story filled with the classic Spider-Man characters you love, letting you swing, wall crawl and leap your way to stop Peter Parker’s infamous rogue’s gallery. The simple act of moving through this open world looks and feels great, exclusively letting PS4 players live their superhero fantasy as the web-slinger himself.
