According to the Steam page, the PC version of Days Gone will contain a number of new features, including support for ultra-wide monitors, an unlocked framerate and improved graphical detail. These include a general increased level of detail, as well as improved field of view and foliage draw distances.
The PC port will also include the New Game Plus, Survival Mode and Challenge Mode options, which were added to the PS4 version as updates following its release.
Officially, Sony has said the game will release this spring. The Steam page currently contains a release date of “April 26, 2019”, which is either a full or partial error.
“There’s an opportunity to expose [our studios’] great games to a wider audience and recognise the economics of game development, which are not always straightforward”, Ryan told GQ.
“The cost of making games goes up with each cycle, as the calibre of the IP has improved. Also, our ease of making it available to non-console owners has grown. So it’s a fairly straightforward decision for us to make.”
In a corporate report published last summer, Sony said it would explore bringing more PlayStation exclusives to PC, following Horizon Zero Dawn’s release on the platform.
In VGC’s Days Gone review, our critic called the PS4 exclusive “far from the worst specimen of its genre but in a year already packed with 50 hour+ endeavours, it rarely makes the case for its own existence.”
