Days Gone 1.10 Update Out Now, Adds Survival Difficulty and Weekly Challenges

Sony and Bend Studio announced when Days Gone released back in April that a free update would be coming to the game sometime in June to add new content to it and today is that day.

In a post over on the PlayStation Blog, Bend Studio announced that the 1.10 update for Days Gone is out now on PlayStation 4 and it adds quite a bit of new stuff to the game. The patch weighs in at around 16GB.

It adds a brand new Survivor difficulty mode to the game which removes the HUD most of the time, causes enemies to deal more damage, blocks fast travel, and more. Several issues that players have reported have also been fixed. Starting later in June, players will be able to play a new weekly challenge every week for 12 weeks. Completing them will reward new patches, bike skins, player skins, and more.

You can read the full patch notes below as well as read about the weekly challenges:

Weekly Challenges

Later in June, we will begin releasing Challenges. Each week a new combat, bike, or horde challenge drops with unique rules and scoring modifiers. Doing well at challenges awards wearable patches that come with perks. Patches provide small gameplay improvements like increased health, faster stamina recharging, decreased focus cost, greater melee weapon durability, better gun accuracy from the bike, and more. Patch benefits stack and even carry back into the main game. Players also earn rank and credits to buy character skins, bike skins, and wearable rings that provide more potent gameplay perks to help players perform better at all challenges.

Players can only equip two rings at a time, so they have to make tactical decisions for each challenge. Rolling reloads a portion of your ammo, vaulting regenerates some stamina, headshots increase gun accuracy, and more. Rings do not carry over to the main game. Replaying a challenge with new perks opens up increased scoring possibilities and opportunities to earn new rewards to build a better score to compete against your friends and the world via leaderboards.

As you may have caught above, character skins are available in the Challenges. Players will finally be able to change Deacon’s outfit by choosing between three looks: apocalypse Deacon, flashback Deacon, and — for the ultimate in fan service — shirtless Deacon. This is in addition to ten other characters including Boozer, Rikki, Addy, Iron Mike, and more!

Our first gameplay challenge, “Surrounded,” drops in late June. Players must survive an infinite horde onslaught in the town of Sherman’s Camp. They’ll be scored on how long they survive against not only the Freakers, but a clock that is constantly ticking down — killing Freakers adds more time so players can’t run and hide — they have to stay engaged in the fight to get the best score. They can also earn point multipliers by executing specific sub-challenges like environmental kills, headshots, and collecting ears while on the run.

Twelve challenges over 12 weeks makes this the summer of Days Gone and the summer of fun.
