Days Gone Week

After months of planning, I can finally reveal to you the inaugural…

DAYS GONE WEEK

Starting on Monday, April 20th join us as we celebrate the one-year anniversary of Days Gone! Fans around the world get to share, connect, create and discuss the game we love. You can take part in the celebration by sharing your Days Gone virtual photography, photo edits, streams, videos, fan-art, discussions and anything else you would like to add to the week. There will be interviews, giveaways, fan-appreciation videos, streams, a photo mode contest with prizes and more! Let’s show Bend Studio how much this game means to us!

What You Need To Know:

  • Days Gone Week will kick-off on Monday, April 20th and run to Sunday, April 26th – the one-year anniversary of Days Gone.
  • Make sure to use #DAYSGONEWEEK on social media to join in on the celebration. (Most of the celebration will reside on Twitter, but please feel free to share on other platforms as well – Reddit, YouTube, Facebook and Instagram).
  • Anyone can join in! Have a walkthrough stream from last year? Or old photos you posted when the game came out? Feel free to reshare it with #DaysGoneWeek.
  • The goal for this week is for the community to all join together to share our passion of Days Gone and show appreciation to the developers behind the game, Bend Studio. Create, share and support to fill everyone’s feed with nothing but Days Gone during this week!
  • Each day will highlight a part of the game to spark conversation, creativity and to give the day a little extra Days Gone. Monday begins with the family – Deacon, Sarah and Boozer.
  • The Broken Road blog is your home for everything Days Gone! Check out interviews from the team at Bend Studio, topics on the game, fan-fiction stories, videos, virtual photography themes/tips and browse a gallery of photos captured in Photo Mode. Plus, all the content being released during Days Gone Week will be posted under it’s own page making it easier for you to view and keep up with everything that is going on. The tab is located at the top of the page.
