Days Gone version 1.40 is now available for PS4 players. According to the Days Gone 1.40 patch notes, the latest update added new accessibility options and “Reload” DLC challenge to the game. Apart from this, Days Gone update 1.40 also includes stability and performance improvements.
Previously, an update was released with the “Outride” DLC challenge. Where you take to the Broken Ride and get to Crazy Willie’s as fast as you can while taking out Freakers. Unfortunately, many players are still experiencing crashing issues when trying to play the game. Days Gone 1.40 is expected to fix a few of these issues. Check out more details below.
Weekly DLC Challenges
“Reload” is the next free Horde DLC challenge! You have 3 minutes to take down 300 Freakers by utilizing your environment and a .50 BFG! (Unlocks today!)
The .50 BFG can penetrate through multiple Freakers! Shoot through the Horde and survey your surrounding for any nearby explosive objects
The sub-challenges all tie into different ways of killing the horde. If you want to get gold in all of them at once be sure to manage how many Swarmers you’re killing by any one method
Announcement about “Dead Don’t Ride” and “Outride”
Dead Don’t Ride
Due to a scoring error that occurred when we launched this challenge which gave an excessive amount of additional points at the end, we have done a one-time reset ONLY for the “Dead Don’t Ride” leaderboard. We don’t expect to reset these or any leaderboards in the future.
