SIE Bend Studio have released another minor patch for their zombie action adventure Days Gone. Once again, the patch tackles some audio issues, progression and auto-save bugs along with some general improvements and optimisations.
After some previous patches introduced a couple of fixes for Days Gone's audio issues, usually missing audio and audio sync bugs, Bend Studio managed to adress all the issues related to sound in the latest, 1.08 patch.
According to the official patch notes, audio desync issue which appeared during cinematics has finally been resolved. Furthermore, a fix for an auto-save function that did not save your game to cloud account properly has been addressed.
Bend Studio made it clear that with this update, they did not delete any of the current auto-saves and you can manage them by going to Settings, Application Saved Data Management and finally Auto-Upload. With this update, the game should no longer crash when attempting to overwrite the oldest auto-save.
As for the progression issues that prevented players from completing certain quests, fast travel and save the game, Bend Studio fixed some of these issues. An issue where players could not save the game, fast travel or pause after triggering the cinematic in I've Had Better Days has been addressed.
On top of that, Bend Studio also fixed the issue that prevented players from completing Afraid of a Little Competition? quest. You may need to move as far back to where the Bounty Collector Merchant resides and return to the mission objective in order to trigger the cinematic for this quest.
Also, some players were unable to complete the quest Searching For Lisa but Bend Studio fixed this one and those who were impacted by the problem will now see the Mission Complete screen.
On top of all these fixes, overall improvements have been made to streaming and the game's performance with additional bug and crashing fixes.
Bend Studio say that their current plan is to slow down the number of patches in order to add more fixes, features and optimisations with each patch.
