Admit it. Even though most of us have mediocre Photo Mode skills, we love one of the biggest new trends this generation of gaming.
Days Gone is keeping the tradition of Sony Interactive Entertainment’s 1st party titles setting the standard, as its Photo Mode sounds completely badass.
As per Jeff Ross, Director of Days Gone.
Of course, this includes features that people expect to come standard these days. From the Characters panel, users can toggle character and bike visibility as well as select from a library of facial expressions. The Frames & Presets panel hosts nine custom frames, several black frame shapes and sizes, Days Gone logo options, and 18 filter presets. The Lens panel lets players manipulate Field of View, Focal Distance, Aperture, and Film Grain. One of the first features we developed for Photo Mode was the inclusion of Focus Lock, which allows users to set a permanent focus point that stays sharp no matter where they move the camera.
For all of you Photo Mode Professionals, there’s also an Advanced Mode to show peeps your true skills!
Our Advanced Mode where users can fine-tune their final shots by manipulating 55 different settings across Bloom, Color Grading, and Color Depth Grading panels. We worked closely with members of our Art team, including some Hollywood veterans, to help define the essential properties to capture all the power and flexibility that comes with professional photo editing software. This is the very same interface our artists used to author the filter presets that ship with the game. Players can even use one of our presets as a starting point to learn how Advanced Mode works, then use it a baseline to creating their own filter that can be saved to one of five preset slots for easy reuse later.
Get those cameras ready, as the Photo Mode will be available Day 1 on April 26th! Who’s ready for Horde photos, Brah?!?
