Days Gone PC Release Time and Preload Details – When Can You Start the Game?

Can’t wait to jump into the post-apocalyptic action? Here’s when you can begin your adventure.

If you didn’t get stuck into the hellish world of Deacon St. John and the freakers the first time around in Days Gone when it first released on the PS4, get ready for another chance as it releases on PC.

Not only will Days Gone support ultra-wide monitors, achievements for PC and also include the same Photo Mode from PlayStation in high resolution, players will also be able to play the game at 60 FPS.

Unfortunately, Days Gone won’t support DLSS or ray tracing but what you can be sure of is an adrenaline-fuelled adventure aided by Deacon’s trusty motorcycle as the world comes for him on the broken road.
