In the final segment of the interview, Lord Cognito and Mark Beatty complete the game by showcasing a bit of the horde mode and even get some tips from the developer on how to manipulate the horde. In Days Gone, the horde is vastly different than other zombie games, as they have a more fast-paced, World War Z like vibe. Game-wise Left 4 Dead is the closest thing that comes to mind when thinking about the speed.
It seems as though the developer has leaned into the usage of spacing and distance to help create the best way to handle the horde. In the section demonstrated with Mark, the field was littered with enough explosive barrels and tanker trucks to set the horde ablaze.
What do you think of the fast-paced horde? Let us know and be sure to check the other segments to the interview.
