Sony has announced the Days Gone PC release date, and it will be May 18, 2021 for $49.99 and can now be pre-purchased on digital retailers such as Steam or Epic Games Store.
A former PS4 exclusive developed by Sony Bend, Days Gone will be published by Sony on PC with new features, for the PC experience. These new features in the PC port of Days Gone include 21:9 ultra-wide monitor support, and new display customization options that include an increased level of detail, graphical customization, and foliage draw distances. You can use a mouse and keyboard or 1st and 3rd party controllers. There's also a super-resolution photo mode, so you can share your selfies with everyone on how the end of the world is treating you. Check out the new features below:
This news is somewhat shadowed by it was recently revealed by Jason Schreier that Days Gone 2 was never able to get off the ground last year after an unsuccessful pitch from Sony Bend. While the first game was profitable, it had a long development time and its critical reception wasn't the greatest, so therefore Days Gone 2 wasn't seen as something viable for Sony to pursue.
That seems a bit odd considering that Days Gone 2 would require less early iteration because the first game would provide a strong base, and world to build upon. Oh well. At the very least they're hiring for another game that's open world, so we'll have to see what Sony Bend is up to.
