Days Gone Patch 1.21 is Out Now and it Adds Weekly Challenges

Get a look at all of the new changes coming to Days Gone today.

Sony Bend’s Days Gone has been out for about two months at this point but the developer’s work on the game is far from over. In fact, today’s addition to Days Gone might be the biggest that the game has seen since it hit store shelves.

As of this morning, patch 1.21 for Days Gone has now gone live. Per usual with new updates, this patch fixes a variety of bugs that have reared their head in Days Gone recently. Additionally, there have been some other changes dealing with how progression works.

By far the biggest addition to this update though is that of weekly challenges. Bend Studio announced previously that it would be adding this DLC post-launch to the game for free and this update makes good on such.

As for what these challenges take the form of, “Surrounded” is the name of this week’s challenge which sees you facing off against an endless horde. You can earn a bronze, silver, or gold rank in this challenge in addition to earning more credits. Subsequent challenges will go live moving forward each Friday. Additionally, new trophies have also been added to Days Gone to support these recurring challenges.

You can find the full patch notes below if you’d like to read them for yourself. Days Gone is out now exclusively on PS4.
