days gone

Sony Interactive Entertainment and Bend Studio have released the 1.08 patch for their PlayStation 4 open world zombie game Days Gone.

This latest patch fixes issues with several missions in the game that players were having problems completing. It also fixes some issues with auto-saves, improves performance and streaming, and more. Bend Studio says they plan to release fewer patches going forward so as to be able to make each one more significant. You can read the full patch notes below and let us know in the comments if you’re still having any issues with the game.

Hey everyone! With this patch, we plan to deliver some mission and audio sync fixes, as well as streaming optimizations.

Patch 1.08

Progression Issues

  • Fixed an issue where players wouldn’t be able to save, fast travel, or pause after triggering the cinematic to “I’ve Had Better Days”

  • Fixed the issue that prevented players from completing ”Afraid of a Little Competition?”. Players may need to move as far back to where the Bounty Collector Merchant resides and return to the mission objective to trigger the cinematic

  • Fixed an issue where players were unable to complete “Searching For Lisa”. Players that were impacted will now see the Mission Complete screen

General Fixes

  • Overall improvements have been made to streaming and performance

  • Audio desync issue during cinematics have been resolved

  • Auto-save function will now save the correct number of saves to your save cloud account

    • With this update, we did not delete any of your current auto-saves. You can go into (Settings) > [Application Saved Data Management] > [Auto-Upload] to manage your auto-saves for Days Gone

    • The game should no longer crash when attempting to overwrite the oldest auto-save

  • Patch updates now retain your Difficulty settings

  • Fixed various bugs and miscellaneous crashes

The current plan for our team is to slow down the amount of patches we release but to add more fixes, features, and optimizations with each patch.
