Set for release via Steam and the Epic Games Store, the PC version will include support for ultra-wide monitors, an unlocked framerate and improved graphical detail.
A new trailer (above) highlighting improvements to the PC version of the game has been published to coincide with Thursday’s release date announcement.
In VGC’s Days Gone review, our critic called the PS4 game “far from the worst specimen of its genre” but added: “in a year already packed with 50 hour+ endeavours, it rarely makes the case for its own existence”.
Days Gone’s director recently responded to a report claiming that plans for Days Gone 2 were rejected by Sony.
Former Sony Bend game director Jeff Ross confirmed that he was at one point working on a Days Gone 2 pitch but, due to an NDA with his former employer, couldn’t confirm if it had been cancelled.
However, he did reveal some details on his sequel pitch – including plans for a significant online mode – and heavily suggested that sales of the first game might not have been strong enough to persuade Sony to greenlight it.
