Days Gone gets updated to a 1.70 version with a monstrous 25GB patch ahead of the next-gen launch and all indications are that the ground is being prepared for the usability of the PS5 Game Boost feature.
Following the footsteps of The Last of Us Remastered , another PlayStation 4 exclusive received a special treatment just before the release of the PlayStation 5 console, and this time it's the open-world adventure Days Gone, developed by Sony's first-party studio Bend Studios .
Just like The Last of Us Remastered and God of War, Bend Studios' Days Gone is one of the titles from the upcoming PlayStation Plus Collection, and the release date of this patch coincides with the assumption that the two previously mentioned games got their updates in order to take advantage of the PlayStation 5 Game Boost feature with improved frame rates and loading times.
One of the most underrated PS4 exclusives (or games in general) Days Gone, just got the unusually large 25GB update, and here are the official patch notes:
- Added operational stability improvements
- Addressed crashing issues
- Fixed framerate drop and lag issues
- Performance and stability performance
The post-apocalyptic adventure of Deacon St.John had a bumpy launch when it came out, mostly because the reviewers got the version of Days Gone before the game got a couple of patches, which largely affected the reviews, but Bend Studio have patched many bugs and issues and made the game much more stable and made the overall experience in the zombie-shooter very enjoyable.
It’s good to see that Bend Studio still supports their first PS4 game and hopefully, we’ll be able to enjoy 60FPS gameplay on the PS5. There is no official information yet, but it is obvious that the ground is being prepared for the best Sony first-party games that will work on the PS5 via backwards compatibility.
