Days Gone is an upcoming third-person action-adventure title set in the post-apocalypse. After a zombie-like virus has flooded the world, humanity is left in shambles leaving small communities and groups scavenging to survive.
Players take on the role of a former bounty hunter named Deacon St. John who now uses his skills and abilities to survive as he drifts from different communities. Developers SIE Bend Studio has stated that the game would offer a few different means of completing objectives such as going in full force and attacking the enemies head-on or using your wit and complete the mission through the use of stealth.
Furthermore, the game also features a day-night cycle similar to the Dying Light franchise. Essentially, the zombie-like creatures will be more lethargic during the day but once nightfall hits, players will be forced to fight off stronger and more aggressive enemies.

Tom Clancy’s: The Division 2

- Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
- Release: March 15, 2019
Tom Clancy’s: The Division 2 was unveiled during E3 2018. In this third-person shooter, The Division is up against the government. Months have passed since the first installment of the game where the government has started to order strict rules leaving innocent civilians to live in a harsh world filled with uncertainty.
This has sparked a new civil war, one in which The Division has sided with the civilians as they reclaim order. Gameplay seems to be similar to the first installment as you’ll find an emphasis in going through the campaign with friends. Likewise, we already know that there are DLC expansion packs slated to launch during the video game’s first year of launch. Each of the expansion packs will give players new story and activities to go through. Developers have also confirmed that everyone who purchases a copy of the game will receive the DLC packs completely free of charge.
World War Z
- Developer: Saber Interactive
- Publisher: Focus Home Interactive
- Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
- Release: April 16, 2019
If you want a bit more chaotic action to your zombie game then we have to suggest looking at World War Z. This title focuses on more horde based zombies where players can work together and fend off a massive horde of undead. They are a bit fast in movement similar to what we’ve seen in the film based that bears the same name. Zombies even pile up to reach higher grounds which we imagine no area is really safe from being reached and attacked. Apparently throughout the game players can strategically place traps to thin out the herd of zombies and you’ll be taken to different locations around the world.

After waiting since 2010, we’re finally receiving a new installment to the Crackdown franchise. Crackdown 3 was first announced in 2014 where the game had been in development limbo until now where developers Ruffian Games have stated the third installment will, in fact, launch within 2019.
This is an action-packed third-person shooter with a highly destructible world for players to battle within. As for the narrative, Crackdown 3 picks up ten years after the events of Crackdown 2 where a new terrorist organization has successfully taken down the power across the entire world.
Much like the past two installments, Crackdown 3 will put players into the role of an agent who must track down and stop the terrorist organization. However, there is a competitive multiplayer mode if you wish to enjoy more of a non-stop action gameplay.
