Can you truly qualify a new game as a AAA production unless it has a photo mode of some kind? That’s the ethos Sony seem to have been sticking with for the past few years, Horizon Zero Dawn being the first time to start the trend, if I remember correctly. Days Gone is the latest PS4 exclusive with its own wallpaper producer, and it may be some of the most fun the game has to offer.
While it’s lacking in features (the ability to select preset filters one of the biggest), there are many ways in which you can turn the grimdark world of Days Gone a little brighter, which starts with Deacon himself. The “unusual” protagonist typically only has two modes — murdering and riding — but Days Gone’s photo mode allows him to get in touch with his light-hearted side, as you can see below.
You can also embrace his dark side and audition for the Sons of Anarchy reboot if you want to instead.
Days Gone’s photo mode is intuitive, though I will be damned if I know what the right aperture is, or how to properly utilise contrast without making it look like a MySpace profile photo. There are options for frames, which, while nowhere near as interesting as seen in Marvel’s Spider-Man, do bring a bit of something extra.
It’s worth bearing in mind that these images have actually been compressed a couple of times, so they’re not actually reflective of just how pretty a game Days Gone can be at times. The facial animations are great and enemies fairly well detailed, so it’s just a shame that the game also has an ugly side sometimes.
