Days Gone Update 1.30 Patch Notes

Weekly Challenges

  • “Keep Them Safer” is our fifth free DLC challenge! Replay one of Days Gone’s end-game missions where you take on 300 Freakers in a NERO gravesite
  • Keep your distance from the Horde and plan out your route of attack
  • Utilize gas tanks, flammable barrels, and your environment
  • Headshots and crossbow kills are key to getting a gold rank in this challenge


While Days Gone did have the option to invert the Vertical Camera, there was no option to invert the Horizontal Camera as well. Now the player can invert both the Vertical and Horizontal cameras.

Camera Follow Tracking was an option in Days Gone, but it wasn’t fully working as intended. Non-aiming cameras didn’t always automatically follow the player, especially if an enemy was in close proximity. Now, this option should be fixed. Enabling Camera Follow Tracking will now allow the camera to slowly follow the player when turning.


Previously, the only way to turn off the DualShock 4 controller speakers was via the PlayStation® 4 system menu. We’ve added the option to disable the controller speakers from within the game. Doing so will reroute the audio through the player’s normal audio output device.


To make subtitles easier to read, we’ve added the ability to adjust the size of the subtitles. The options are small (default), medium, and large.


On top of adjusting subtitle size, the player can now change the subtitle background by making it transparent or disabling the background entirely.


By default, we always display the speaker’s name in front of the subtitle. Now, we’ve added the ability to disable the speaker name from appearing in front of the subtitles.


We shipped our game with repeated button presses for our grapple events. We have now added the option to change the tap to a hold. Now, players can hold the required button for a certain amount of time to complete the same events.


The size of our repeated button icons can also be small, especially for players further away from their screens. We added an option for the player to adjust the size of repeated button icons, from small (default), to medium, to large.


We relaxed how far the left analog stick had to be pressed before activating sprint, making it feel much more responsive.
