Days Gone’s new mode is basically Crazy Taxi

Drop off survivors, who would probably love some Pizza Hut right now

Bend Studio’s zombie game Days Gone has a new update that adds a Crazy Taxi-like arcade mode to the PlayStation 4 exclusive. That mode, called Dead Don’t Ride (which was Days Gone’s rumored working title), puts players into a golf cart and forces them to pick up passengers and drop them off at their destination while racing against the clock.

Dead Don’t Ride is missing many of the things that make Crazy Taxi great; it’s slower, you don’t have a bustling city to drive through, and there are no Pizza Huts, Tower Records, or KFCs to visit. And the zombies — err, Freakers — don’t jump out of the way at the last second. In fact, running over Swarmers is one of the goals in Days Gone’s Dead Don’t Ride. But clearly Bend was going for that Crazy Taxi spirit in a game not built for arcade-style mechanics.

Dead Don’t Ride also doesn’t sport a soundtrack dripping with The Offspring and Bad Religion, but it does have an exclusive set of music tracks for the mode.

Days Gone’s Dead Don’t Ride bike challenge is live in the PS4 game now.
