Days Gone Gets Massive 25 GB Update Before PS5 Launch

The hefty patch will make the zombie apocalypse sandbox a whole lot more stable.

27 Comments

Open-world zombie apocalypse game Days Gone just received a new update, and it's a chunky one that improves overall stability and addresses several issues that caused the Sony Bend-developed title to crash. Measuring in at a whopping 25 GB, the update brings Days Gone up to version 1.70. The patch notes are surprisingly short as well:

  • Added operational stability improvements
  • Addressed crashing issues
  • Fixed framerate drop and lag issues
  • Performance and stability performance

Days Gone will be one of several games in the PS Plus Collection alongside Bloodborne, God of War, and Persona 5, those will be available for PlayStation 5 PS Plus subscribers when the new console launches in November. Like many of those games, it'll feature some PS5 enhancements like an improved frame rate and loading times, features which The Last of Us Part II began preparing for with a patch of its own that has already dramatically improved its load times on PS4.

The new patch however, doesn't indicate if Days Gone will receive similar current-gen improvements or any other added improvements such as last year's New Game+ Mode or cosmetics from Death Stranding.

In GameSpot's Days Gone review, critic Kallie Plagge said, "Riding a souped-up motorcycle through the world and taking out zombie nests and hordes is satisfying in the way that completing open-world checklists often is, but by the end, you're left to wonder what the point of it all was."
