Sony reveals Days Gone's PC launch features and release date

Sony has released a new PC trailer for Days Gone, the company's latest PlayStation-to-PC game conversion, announcing that the game would be coming to PC on May 18th on Steam and the Epic Games Store. 

On PC, Sony has confirmed that Days Gone will feature ultra-wide monitor support, an unlocked framerate option and improved graphics over the game's PlayStation 4 versions, offering players higher level of detail settings, new field of view options and increased foliage draw distances. The game will also support a variety of controllers, including Valve's Steam controller, Xbox Gamepads, PlayStation controllers and more. 

The Steam/PC version of Days Gone will use the DirectX 11 API and be built for Windows 10 based systems. While HDD storage and 8GB of system memory will be enough to play the game, Sony has recommended that PC gamers invest in 16GB of system memory and SSD-based storage to play the game optimally. 


Days Gone will be playable on many older PC hardware configurations, with the game's minimum system requirements listing Intel's i5-2500K processor, AMD's FX-6300 CPU, and graphics cards like Nvidia's GTX 780 and AMD's R9 290. The game will require 70GB of storage on PC, with Sony recommending SSD-based storage solutions. 

To play Days Gone, Sony's official hardware recommendations are Intel's Core i704770K processor or AMD's Ryzen 5 1500X. 16GB of system memory is also recommended. GPU-wise, Sony has recommended AMD's Radeon RX 580 8GB and Nvidia's GTX 1060 6GB, though it is unknown what settings, resolutions or framerates these hardware recommendations target. 

Below is what Sony has to say about the PC version of Days Gone on Steam. On PC, the game will cost £39.99 in the UK on Steam and the Epic Games Store. 
 

    Days Gone is an open-world action-adventure game set in a harsh wilderness two years after a devastating global pandemic.

Step into the dirt flecked shoes of former outlaw biker Deacon St. John, a bounty hunter trying to find a reason to live in a land surrounded by death. Scavenge through abandoned settlements for equipment to craft valuable items and weapons, or take your chances with other survivors trying to eke out a living through fair trade… or more violent means.

KEY FEATURES

• A striking setting: From forests and meadows, to snowy plains and desert lava fields, the Pacific Northwest is both beautiful and lethal. Explore a variety of mountains, caves, mines and small rural towns, scarred by millions of years of volcanic activity.

• Brutal encounters: With vicious gangs and hordes of Freakers roaming the land, you’ll need to make full use of a variety of customizable traps, weapons, and upgradable skills to stay alive. Don’t forget your Drifter bike, an invaluable tool in a vast land.
• An ever-changing environment: Jump on the saddle of Deacon’s trusty motorbike and explore a dynamic world dramatically affected by the weather, a dramatic day/night cycle and the evolving Freakers, who adjust to their surroundings – and the people in it.
• A compelling story: Lose yourself in a powerful tale of desperation, betrayal and regret, as Deacon St. John searches for hope after suffering a deep, personal loss. What makes us human when faced with the daily struggle for survival?
