Sony Bend has released a handful of new patches for Days Gone that’s set to bring a number of improvements to PS4’s latest first-party title.
Days Gone is Sony’s most recent major exclusive for the PlayStation 4 since Spider-Man last year and it’s fair to say that it could’ve done with a little bit more of that distinctive Sony polish.
Despite having a great launch week, fans have been left disappointed by the performance of the game, having encountered a host of bugs, graphical glitches, and frame-rate issues in the first few days since launch.
However, everything may not be lost as the latest patch and the details therein bring with them good news for those hoping to dive into what is already quite a hostile post-apocalyptic world, glitches omitted.
The core bug fixes can be seen below:
- 1.05: A fix for a streaming issue in a certain location. This is significant as some players were having issues where they’d fall through the map if exploring a map before the game had time to deliver upon it.
- 1.06: Auto-save function will now save the correct number of saves to your save cloud account
- 1.06: Audio should no longer be cut out/dropped when it involves equipping certain engines and certain exhausts to your bike
- 1.06: Difficulty settings are retained through patches
- 1.05: Fixed a bug where some players experienced a crash when booting up the game. This is useful especially in light of Days Gone’s loading times.
- 1.05: Audio dropping out/muted. If you are experiencing this, equip the default exhaust to your bike. Sony Bend is currently looking into a resolution for this issue.
- 1.06: The crash on startup and other issues in this scope are being investigated. As of now, if you haven’t downloaded Patch 1.06 and start-up Days Gone, you will remain with Patch 1.05 active. Updates to come.
Though the launch of the game has been less than optimal, to Sony Bend’s credit they are looking to resolve these issues as quickly and efficiently as possible.
