Days Gone has finally received a release date for PC. Bend Studio announced via the PlayStation Blog today that the previously-exclusive survival horror game arrives on Steam and Epic Games Store on May 18. The PC launch will come with a slate of brand new features, including new modes and customizations. A stunning new trailer details everything fans can expect to see from Days Gone on PC.
According to the announcement, Days Gone on PC will offer support for 21:9 ultra-wide monitors and unlocked framerate. Additionally, players choose how they see the world with display customization options like “increased level of detail, foliage draw distances, and graphical customization.” Finally, a “super resolution photo mode” allows players to capture in-game moments like never before. Check out the trailer below to see the new Days Gone graphics in action.
Fans had an inkling that Days Gone would arrive on PC soon when a listing landed on Steam with system requirements. The game will need 8 GB RAM, Windows 10 64-bits, and 70 GB of storage space. The Steam listing also teased some of the new Days Gone features. Eager fans can pre-order the PC version of Days Gone via Steam and Epic Games Store ahead of its May 18 release date.
Just getting started
Days Gone is only the beginning in a new PlayStation initiative for PC. Back in February, Sony Interactive Entertainment head Jim Ryan revealed that “a whole slate” of PlayStation games would launch on PC this season. Rather than sticking to PlayStation exclusives, the gaming giant plans to expand its audience to PC users. PlayStation had already seen success on PC with its Horizon Zero Dawn launch. Ryan feels that success can be duplicated with other PS exclusives. He didn’t specify other titles coming to PC, but we’re likely to find out more soon now that spring is in full swing.
