Psychonauts 2 Gets Over 3 Hours Of Gameplay Footage

It has been a long time coming, but next month we'll finally get the sequel to Psychonauts. The game has been in development for a good while, having started as a crowdfunding project, and eventually getting wrapped up in the acquisition of the developer by Microsoft. We've recently got a story trailer as well as some new gameplay footage. Now, however, we're getting a big chunk of the early game.

Microsoft released just over 3 hours of the game to the folks at GamersPrey. It is presented largely without commentary, and comes from the beginning of the game. It will give you a good idea of what to expect from both a storytelling and gameplay perspective. If you were a fan of the first game, you probably already know what to expect, but you'll be happy I imagine. Check it out in full below.

Psychonauts 2 will release on August 25th for PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC. You can check out the expected resolution and framerates for all the various versions of the game through here.

Microsoft Flight Simulator Has Helicopters Planned For 2022

Last year heralded the grand return of Microsoft Flight Simulator. The game saw you take to the skies in incredible detail in a variety of different airplanes. It was originally released to much fanfare on PC, with a version now set to be coming to the Xbox Series consoles this month. Flight Simulator has also seen a constant amount of updates, as well, to refine the experience as much as possible. Now, we know more is coming, including a new type of travel.

As detailed in the latest development update blog, it seems the much requested helicopter is planned to come to the game at some point next year. As you can see below, the team put up the most requested features, and helicopter was number 1 by a large margin, and it is listed as planned for 2022. That's unfortunately all the information we have at the moment, so what this will look like is anyone's guess, but it seems like they are at least working on getting you up in the air in a different way.

Microsoft Flight Simulator is available now for PC with a Xbox Series X/S version coming on July 27th. You can read more about that edition of the game, specifically how much space you'll need, through here.

Tom Clancy's XDefiant Supports Crossplay at Launch, Multiplayer Modes Revealed

Ubisoft finally ripped the band-aid off and revealed its rumored free to play FPS at last with Tom Clancy's XDefiant. Developed by Ubisoft San Francisco, the premise sees four factions known as Defiants fighting for supremacy in competitive PvP matches. Though a release date wasn't provided, the first closed test is slated for August 5th.

The official website has a few more details than the reveal trailer. Along with selecting and customizing one's primary weapon, players also have access to secondary weapons and devices. Matches will be 6v6 with Domination, Arena, Team Deathmatch and Escort confirmed as modes. In a separate news post, Ubisoft also confirmed cross-platform play.

The number of maps is unknown but the developer promises a "large pool of uniquely designed maps in rotation and no two matches will feel the same." Interestingly, along with mentioning that more Defiants would be added over time, the title looks to draw on a "range of characters and abilities from the Clancy universe and beyond." Does that means characters from Assassin's Creed, Watch Dogs or even the Rabbids at some point in the future? Well, never say never.

Tom Clancy's XDefiant is in development for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, Google Stadia and PC. Though the first closed test is set for next month (and limited to the US and Canada), Ubisoft has confirmed that more tests will be "coming soon." Registered players who are invited to the test can also select up to five friends for the same.

Tom Clancy's XDefiant Announced, Closed Test Set for August 5th

Originally leaked as BattleCat, Ubisoft has officially announced Tom Clancy's XDefiant, a free to play team-based competitive first person shooter. It features combat between four factions (known as Defiants) from across the Tom Clancy series of games – the Outcasts and Cleaners from The Division series; the Wolves from Ghost Recon Breakpoint; and Echelon, based on Third Echelon from Splinter Cell. Check out the reveal below.

Characters fall into one of these four factions, and have their own unique abilities and Supers (known as "Ultras" here). Cleaners can use flamethrowers, Echelon has night vision goggles and so on. Additional characters will be added to the title over time. A multitude of weapons with different attachments are also available and each faction can equip every weapon. You can even change your loadout at respawn.

Tom Clancy's XDefiant is in development for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, Google Stadia and PC. Early roll-out phases are planned with the first closed test taking place on August 5th (sign up for the same here). Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.

Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin Guide – How to Get Vital Essence and Ancient Potions, and Unlock Expeditions

If you're diving deep into the endgame of Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, then it's important to have Vital Essence and Ancient Potions. These are items that can restore hearts, effectively giving you additional lives in battles. It's a great way to keep yourself from losing any tougher battles but becomes absolutely necessary in the endgame.

How do you go about crafting the same? You first need to reach Lulucion and then venture to the southern part. Speak to the Purrsevering Felyne near the Layered Armor vendor and obtain the quest "A Test of Purr-severence." Once completed, you'll receive two Vital Essence and the recipe for crafting more. Vital Essence can restore one heart in battles but requires five Raw Meat, three Toadstools and three Girthy Garlic to craft.

Raw Meat and Toadstools are fairly easy to find but Girthy Garlic is more rare, having a chance to drop from buried piles out in the open. If you're not able to find enough, use the Prayer Pot's Gathering Prayer to increase your chances.

To unlock the Ancient Potion's crafting recipe, speak to the Sloppy Artisan near the Layered Armor vendor in Lulucion. Complete the "Secret Dealings" quest and you'll receive the recipe along with one Ancient Potion for free. Ancient Potions also restore one heart in battles but will also provide ample healing, letting you mount a more powerful comeback.

It requires one Kelbi Horn and one Immunizer to craft. The former is easy enough to find – simply locate some Kelbi and once they flee, pick up their horns. The latter requires crafting or purchasing separately. For more details on the quests – along with one other quest to obtain two more Vital Essence – check out Arekkz Gaming's video below. There's a spoiler for the last town from 3:50 onwards so be warned.

How to Unlock Expeditions and Expedition Slots

Much like the Tailraider Safaris in Monster Hunter World, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin allows for sending out parties to gather resources while you quest normally. Known as Expeditions, the main difference is that you're sending out your own Monsties who can receive XP and items along with different resources, providing a nice way to level them without having to grind. Expeditions become available from Kuan Village onwards and allow for up to six Monsties to be sent out in a single party.

You can also choose from different kinds of Expedition settings which alters the rewards received. Balanced is the default setting while EXP Enthusiast, Item Gatherer and Materialist prioritize experience points, items and materials respectively. There are also settings like Thorough, Hasty and Treasure Hunter. Expeditions take about 40 minutes to an hour to complete.

Though you start with only one slot at the Stables to send out a single Expedition Party, this can be upgraded to six in total. To do this, go to a Melnyx Inc. Felyne Vendor and exchange Bottlecaps for an Expedition Ticket. The default ticket will unlock the second slot for 22 Bottlecaps while the Silver Expedition Ticket unlocks the third. For 40 Bottlecaps, you gain the Gold Expedition Ticket to unlock the fourth, fifth and sixth slots. Bottlecaps can be found in the Everdens so make sure to explore thoroughly whenever you get the chance.

Total War: Warhammer 3 – Grand Cathay and Siege Battles Reveal Coming in September

Following last week's release of Total War: Warhammer 2's The Silence and The Fury DLC, The Creative Assembly will be taking a break from any news on Total War: Warhammer 3. In a new blog post, the developer noted that there would be new major trailers, reveals, screenshots or concept art for August. However, it is aiming to showcase the Grand Cathay in September along with details on Siege Battles.

There will also be an update on system changes that will affect Siege Battles as well. Once the developer returns to the spotlight, details on the bonus for early adopters along with "major surprises we very much doubt you're going to see coming" can be expected. Also, much like its predecessors, long-term support for Total War: Warhammer 3 in the form of DLC and "Free-LC" will be provided.

Players can also expect information on system reworks, UI changes, improvements to the tutorial, upgrades to diplomacy and much more. Interestingly, The Creative Assembly has something else in the works alongside Total War: Warhammer 3. Stay tuned for more details on that in the meantime.

Total War: Warhammer 3 is currently slated to release in 2021 for PC.

Apex Legends – Season 10: Emergence Starts August 3rd, New Legend Seer Announced

Respawn Entertainment dropped a new lore trailer for Apex Legends, introducing Seer, the next upcoming Legend. It also confirmed that Season 10: Emergence would start on August 3rd with the launch trailer coming at EA Play Live. Check out Seer's backstory below.

Seer is described as spotting opportunities "that other Legends might miss" and seizing them "in the most beautiful way he can." His kit consists of microdrones and an "artist's eye" but we'll see more of it in action later this week. Along with a new Legend, Season 10 will update the World's Edge map with some "major changes." A new LMG, the Rampage designed by Rampart, is also being introduced.

Ranked Arenas are also inbound, allowing players to climb up the ranks to Apex Predator in the recently added 3v3 mode. A new battle pass and the Emergence Pack with an exclusive skin for Seer will also be added with the season's launch. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.

EA Play Live takes place on July 22nd at 10 AM PT and features titles like Lost in Random and Battlefield 2042. The rumored Dead Space remake by Motive Studios is also reportedly being revealed.

The Last Batch Of PS Vita Games Is Arriving On July 20th

While Sony has now confirmed that the PS Vita digital storefront will be online for the future, it has also come to light that the Tokyo-based giant will no longer consider any more submissions for the platform – and the last batch of new releases will be dropping tomorrow i.e. July 20th.

As Push Square has noted, a couple of indie developers have reached out to them to confirm that their games would be releasing tomorrow. Russian Subway Dogs is an arcade experience from Spooky Squid Games, and Ultra Mission is an endless top-down shooter from developer Gumbo Machine.

The ceasing of submissions for the PS Vita storefront signifies that Sony is making half-hearted efforts to address the issue. In addition to this debacle, Sony has had a rough few months – with controversies related to its handling of indie developers, its cross-play restrictions, its egregious pricing model for the Director's Cut for Ghost of Tsushima and Death Stranding, and many more.

Eldest Souls Trailer Showcases A Daunting Boss Fight With Hilarious Animations

Developer Fallen Flag Studio has just released a new trailer for its upcoming Eldest Souls, which showcases an animated sequence of a boss fight. The trailer – titled "At the Door of Death" – can be found below, and interested fans might want to check it out.

The trailer showcases a fight with a monstrous boss in a hilarious fashion, with the protagonist barely managing to survive the encounter. The trailer also showcases a number of other boss characters that fans will be facing on their perilous quest to slay the Old Gods. All in all, it does a fine job at establishing the core of the experience and the tone of the game.

Eldest Souls looks to be shaping up great, and fans of the Soulslike genre should definitely keep an eye out for the game. Eldest Souls releases on July 29th for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and PC.

Take-Two Issues DMCA Takedowns Against Popular GTA Mods

A number of incredibly popular mods for Grand Theft Auto have seemingly been removed from existence, following DMCA takedown orders from publisher Take-Two Interactive. The most notable of these mods are – Vice City Overhaul, GTA: Liberty City, and Vice Cry among many others.

As PCGamer has reported, the reason behind these takedowns stem from Take-Two altering its terms and conditions for using the OpenIV modding tool. The publisher reportedly changed its clauses silently in 2019, which now gives it full authority to order takedowns.

This comes shortly after Take Two removed fan-remasters of GTA: Vice City and GTA 3, which have sparked equal amounts of anger and intrigue within the community. Many seem to take these removals as an indication of an official remaster for these titles, while others believe it to be pertaining to GTA 6's setting. However, no solid evidence is present at the time of writing to back any such claim.

Odd Taxi Ending Explained – Who Is Odokawa and What's His History?

Odd Taxi Ending Explained

The last episode of Odd Taxi aired last night with shocking revelations about all characters, including Odokawa and his dark past. If you missed the finale, we have the Odd Taxi ending explained with all the important things you need to know.

Saving all its twists for the final episode, Odd Taxi revealed so many shocking facts about the characters and their past in the Season 1 finale.

Loki, The God of Mischief, Tricks His Way into the July Fortnite Crew

Odd Taxi Ending Explained

Before starting to read the rest of this article, make sure you have watched Odd Taxi Season 1 Episode 13 to avoid any spoilers.

Who Is Odokawa?

The final episode revealed that not only Odokawa, but all the animals are actual humans. Odokawa suffers from visual agnosia that forces him to see humans, including himself, in the shape of animals as he feels closer to animals than humans in life. But why would he trap in such agnosia?

What's Odokawa's History?

A flashback to Odokawa's early life reveals that he was living in a family with ignorant, alcohol-addicted parents. He always felt more kindness from animals rather than humans in his child life, which gradually intensified his visual agnosia.

Odokawa completely trapped in his agnosia after his mother attempted to drown the whole family.

Who Was the Person Living with Odokawa?

It's interesting the mysterious cat-human personality that living with Odakawa is actually a cat in real life. Probably, the only character that reprised relatively correct in Odokawa's visual agnosia.

Who Killed Yuki?

While Rui was arrested for the murder of Yuki, along with Yano, Yamamoto, and Sekiguchi as accomplices, it was revealed later in the final episode that Sakura was the real murderer, the fourth cat in line for Mystery Kiss audition.

Although Odokawa realized the killer was that cat in his agnosia, he couldn't recognize Sakura in the real life as a human.

No plans for the second season of Odd Taxi have been announced yet, but the series has a quite big community out there who were seemingly satisfied with the season finale and wouldn't mind getting a sequel in the future.

Has PlayStation Acquired Bluepoint Games As Well As Housemarque?

Playstation Bluepoint

PlayStation and Bluepoint Games will seemingly become as close as family members soon enough.

Now, we all know that Housemarque, the team behind Returnal, is officially a part of the PlayStation Studios. Mostly focused on roguelike titles, Housemarque is best known for its most recent PS5-exclusive game that was the studio's very first attempt in developing a triple-A game.

  • GUIDE: Apex Legends Genesis Collection Event Start and End Date

While it seems to be Sony's big news for closing in June 2021, apparently there is another acquisition on the way that could be announced in the near future officially.

The PlayStation Bluepoint Games Acquisition Could be Announced Soon

Today, soon after the official PlayStation account on Twitter revealed the acquisition of Housemarque Games, Sony's Japan Studio shared an image as well to congratulate the addition of a new team to the PlayStation Studios, but there was something wrong with the image.

Instead of putting the Housemarque Games logo next to the PlayStation Studios, the image showcased the Bluepoint Games' logo next to the PlayStation Studios brand.

The tweet was deleted immediately, but it was spotted by many users at the time. Although it's not official yet, it could be proven easily that the Bluepoint acquisition would be announced in the near future. You may accidentally upload a wrong image, but you cannot accidentally create an image and put Bluepoint Games' logo inside it instead of that of Housemarque. They neither look nor sound similar.

Bluepoint Games has been working closely with Sony on remaking the older titles like Shadow of the Colossus and Demon's Souls, but if they get acquired by Sony, they might get enough budget to work on their own new IP.

Both Bluepoint Games and Housemarque launched their latest titles earlier this year, and both received favorable feedback from fans and reviewers. Housemarque's team will be expanded for their next project which is apparently bigger than Returnal.

Housemarque's Days of Making Smaller Titles Are Over After PlayStation Acquisition

playstation housemarque

Returnal was one of the biggest PlayStation 5 hits since the console launched back in November, so it should come as no surprise that PlayStation Studios has acquired the developers behind the roguelike title, Housemarque.

There have been rumblings for some time that Housemarque had been acquired by Sony, following an interview with the head of Diorama Studio. The studio head was discussing what it was like working on Returnal, but claimed he couldn't say too much due to an NDA and especially now that "Housemarque is under Sony's umbrella".

PlayStation Studios Acquires Housemarque

The speculation on the acquisition can be laid to rest as the official PlayStation Twitter account announced the news earlier today. Hermen Hulst, head of PlayStation Studios, said that he is "thrilled to welcome a new member to the PlayStation Studios family".

As noted in the announcement, the relationship between PlayStation and Housemarque began over 26 years ago with Super Stardust HD for the PS3. Since then, the developers have gone on to create hit titles such as Resogun, Nex Machina, and most recently, Returnal for the PS5.

Fans can expect plenty of new content from Housemarque in the future, especially with the backing of PlayStation Studios. Fans can read the official acquisition announcement over at the PlayStation Blog.

Housemarque Will No Longer Create Smaller Titles

In an interview with GQ, Housemarque's cofounder Ilari Kuittinen discussed the acquisition in great detail. One of his most notable comments in the exclusive interview surrounds upcoming titles that will be "bigger and more ambitious".

GQ asked Kuittinen if the days of making smaller titles such as Nex Machina and Resogun are behind them following the acquisition. To which the cofounder replied:

"Well, at least initially, I think we're looking into what we've done now and building upon it. Certainly, Returnal is kind of a stepping stone for us. When we're thinking about the future titles, they'll maybe be even bigger and even more ambitious."

It's clear that the backing of PlayStation allows the Returnal developers to create much bigger, more aspiring titles. With the massive success of their recent roguelike game, Sony will of course want more of the same moving forward.

Although Housemarque indeed built their name by creating smaller arcade-style games, it's clear that they have the capability to create much larger AAA titles.

Unfortunately, Kuittinen didn't divulge any information as to what's next for the team. When asked about Housemarque's next project, Kuittinen said that the team are currently taking a break. After the much-needed vacation, the team will start thinking about the future.

So, fans will have to wait some time until the next Housemarque project hits stores, but expect it to be something big following the PlayStation acquisition.

Aerith Voice Actor Wears the Red Dress in Stunning Final Fantasy 7 Remake Cosplay

Aerith English Voice Actor Cosplay Red Dress

Aerith's English voice actor from Final Fantasy 7 Remake Briana White has only gone and gifted us with another stunning cosplay.

The actor posted the cosplay on her Twitter account to celebrate the launch day of Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade – an enhanced and expanded edition for the PS5.

White is accustomed to impressive Aerith cosplays, having delivered another series of photos in October last year. This cosplay featured Aerith's classic outfit with the red jacket, accompanied by a bouquet of flowers.



Aerith Red Dress Cosplay

The actor wore Aerith's red dress from the Final Fantasy 7 Remake mission within Sector 6's Wall Market, during Cloud, Aerith and Tifa's encounter with Don Corneo.

The red dress was made by designer Reagan Kathryn with Martin Wong producing the picturesque photos.

White also accompanied her cosplay images with a fond memory of Aerith's red dress. "Seeing Aerith in her red dress for the first time is a moment I'll never forget," the actor reminisced. 

Within the in-game mission, you had the possibility of receiving three, different dresses for Aerith, the same as Cloud and Tifa, and which one you got was determined by the decisions you made prior.

Aerith's Final Fantasy 7 Remake Chair Meme

Spoilers Ahead

White posted a second tweet shortly after, sharing two bonus images of her reenacting the popular Aerith Chair meme.

For those who haven't been introduced to this wonderful meme yet, it depicts Aerith's revenge on Sephiroth after the events that transpired in the original Final Fantasy 7.

The chair comes into play in Final Fantasy 7 Remake during Aerith and Tifa's fight with some goons. Aerith takes one of the guys out by pelting him with a folding chair, and most fans agreed that this would be an appropriate form of payback for Sephiroth.

White is a popular streamer as well as an actor, and clearly a Final Fantasy fan herself. Her cosplays keep getting better and better, and her fan service is on point too.

Loki Episode 4: Release Date, Time, Trailer, and Recap

When is Loki Episode 4 Coming Out Release Date and Time

After a week-long break, Loki Episode 4 is finally close to its official release, and here's everything you need to know about the upcoming episode's release schedule.

After WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Disney grabbed everyone's attention with Loki. The show follows the journey of God of Mischief after he escapes with tesseract in Avengers Endgame.

Loki's action brings him in direct conflict with the Time Variance Authority. In the Marvel universe, TVA is an all-powerful organization that ensures the proper flow of the 'Sacred timeline,' and Loki has to pay the price of breaking Time Keepers' rules by working for them.

Loki Episode 3 Quick Recap

In the previous episode, we see Lady Loki trying to get information about the Time Keepers from Hunter C-40. Eventually, Sylvie gets the information she needs and straightaway heads to the TVA headquarters to find the Timekeepers.

However, things get difficult for the Loki variant when she finds Ravonna standing in front of her. Before Ravonna could reach Sylvie and Loki, the God of Mischief uses the TemPad and teleports them to Lementis-1.

Unfortunately, the life on the Lementis-1 moon is about to get wiped out as fragments of the Lementis planet start crashing down on the moon. Sylvie and Loki work together and look for different ways to escape the moon before it gets destroyed. With TemPad's power exhausted, the duo decides to get on the Arc, the last chance of the moon's wealthy inhabitants to escape this disaster. However, the Arc also gets destroyed by Lementis' falling debris, and it seems like all hope is lost for Loki and Sylvie.

Loki Mid-Season Trailer [SPOILERS]

Recently, Disney released a spectacular mid-season trailer for Loki. Interestingly, the trailer shows some exciting unseen footage of its remaining three episodes.

After looking at the trailer, we are sure that Loki and Sylvie will safely escape the Doomed Moon. Not only that, Agent Mobius and the TVA agents will eventually catch the mischievous duo.

We also see a glimpse of Asgard in the trailer, but we can't say which upcoming episode will feature that scene. Nevertheless, it's safe to assume that things will get even more intense in Loki as the show has already completed half of its journey.

Loki Episode 4 Release Date

The Loki series follows a weekly release schedule, and Episode 4 will be available to watch on Wednesday, June 30th, 2021.

The show is exclusively available to watch on the Disney Plus streaming service. So, it's best to take a subscription if you don't have it already.

Loki Episode 4 Release Time

Disney doesn't officially reveal the release timing for every episode of its original shows. However, judging from Loki's past release schedule, it's safe to say that Episode 4 would also release at midnight PDT (Pacific timing) on Wednesday, June 30th.

However, the release timing will vary depending on where you live. So, if you want to watch the next episode as soon as it arrives, it's best to confirm Episode 4's release timing for your region here:

  • Pacific Time: 12:00 AM PDT
  • Central Time: 2:00 AM CDT
  • Eastern Time: 3:00 AM EDT
  • British Time:  8:00 AM BST
  • European Time: 9:00 AM CEST
  • Indian Time: 12:30 PM IST
  • Japan Time: 4:00 PM JST
  • Australian Time: 5:00 PM AEST

How many Episodes are there in Loki?

Disney confirmed that MCU's Loki would run for a total of six episodes. So, after Episode 4 gets released on Disney Plus, Marvel fans have two more episodes to look forward to.

When Is Escape From Tarkov Patch 0.12.11 and Wipe? – Release Time (US & UK)

escape from tarkov wipe time

Escape From Tarkov players around the world can rejoice as patch 0.12.11 is inbound with a complete server wipe. The upcoming update was announced on the official Battlestate Games Twitter account.

The announcement of patch 0.12.11 and server wipe was rather cryptic, and left many players wondering what time the Escape From Tarkov patch and wipe would actually release. This was due to the developers posting a letter with information on the patch, and a release date and time of 'June 30, 10AM TLT'.

What Time Is The Escape From Tarkov Patch & Wipe?

Players were left stumped trying to work out when the upcoming Escape From Tarkov patch would release in their timezone. Thankfully, Nikita Buyanov, the COO of Battlestate Games, revealed on Pestily's Twitch stream that TLT is in fact Moscow timezone.

This means that players can expect the Escape From Tarkov 0.12.11 patch and server wipe to arrive at the following times:

  • MIDNIGHT (PT) – June 30th
  • 3AM (ET) – June 30th
  • 8AM (BST) – June 30th

Please note: There will likely be server downtime for the latest patch, which could last some hours. We will update this article with further information on server downtime when it arrives.

Patch 0.12.11

The patch notes for patch 0.12.11 haven't arrived just yet, so there's no way to know exactly what the new patch will include. But players can expect new tasks, changes to previous tasks, and a re-work of XP and progress in general. That's according to Escape From Tarkov YouTuber, NoiceGuy Tarkov.

Tarkov's upcoming 0.12.11 patch will also feature a complete wipe, resetting player's progress. This is similar to the Rust server wipe, and is to keep everyone on a level playing field.

More details will likely emerge before the patch goes live, so check back in at DualShockers as we'll be bringing you the full patch notes.

Beautiful shots taken from some of the real-life locations in Days Gone but, unfortunately, not a horde in sight!

Days Gone's world really is one of the most amazing places there is to discover. Hopping on protagonist Deacon St. John trusty motorbike and riding across the glorious landscape's of Oregon is one of the many things that make Bend Studio's latest title a worthwhile experience.

While, at times, taking in these splendid views of Crater Lake and the snowy hilltop mountains that lie above crystal clear waters is certainly one of the reasons in-game photo mode exists, these moments in Days Gone can be hampered by the hordes of treacherous infected.

Thankfully, Kevin McAllister has found a way to take in these beautiful views in real life without the worry of getting munched on and in the process, has discovered some locations that has inspired Days Gone's environment.

McAllister, who started off as a huge fan of Days Gone, quickly became one of the community's most well-known photographers, forever taking stunning in-game images of every nook and cranny scattered within the title which he proudly showed off on his personal blog.

More recently, he was offered the position as Bend Studio's Online Community Specialist due to his unwavering dedication to all things Days Gone and whist on a trip to Bend, Oregon in search for a new home to go along with his brand new role, Kevin took a trip around the area in search of locations from the game.

While travelling through the town of Chemult on the way to Crater Lake, McAllister stopped to take some comparison shots of what the real-life town and buildings look like versus how they feature in Days Gone.

As you can see, the town's real Burger Stop is called "Burger Mart" in the game in the side by side shots as well as Chemult's Wheelhouse Cafe compared to an in-game image of Days Gone's "Horseshoe Cafe". It really is fascinating, especially seeing all of those train tracks and not one infected trying to come for your ass!

Kevin finally made his way to the famous Crater Lake and looking at those pictures, it sure seems like it was worth the effort. You can follow Kevin and his adventures over on Twitter and of course, if you have any cool photos that you have taken in Days Gone, make sure to tag him as he'd love to see them.

Days Gone is available right now available for PC, PS4 and PS5. If you'd like, check out our glowing review of the title right here.
