Days Gone 1.61 Patch Massively Reduces the File Size of the Game, Read the Full Patch Notes

days gone

Sony Interactive Entertainment and Bend Studio have released the 1.61 patch for their open world zombie game Days Gone and it features a massive reduction to the file size of the game among other fixes.

Now the patch itself is a big one clocking in at around 30GB but the good thing is you’ll end up saving a lot of space once you get it downloaded. Before the patch the game was taking up around 61GB of space on my PlayStation 4. After the patch the game is only taking up 38.71GB of space so that’s over 20GB of space that this patch freed up.

As for the rest of the patch changes you can read them below:
