Game Ready For Days Gone

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.

Explore the Pacific Northwest on Deacon’s motorcycle, fight vicious gangs and roaming hordes of Freakers, lethal mutants who swarm and attack en masse, and unravel a looming mystery in this critically-acclaimed game.


Two years after its console release, Days Gone launches on PC today, with increased levels of detail, higher foliage draw distances, native 4K rendering, a configurable field of view, ultra-wide monitor support, unlocked frame rates, and a raft of other PC features outlined in the official FAQ.
