It’s a tale as old as time itself: game is announced and then gets downgraded. How many times have we seen it this generation alone? Watch Dogs, The Division, ANTHEM… The list goes on and on and on. Days Gone is a rare case, then – a title that’s actually improved as it gets closer to launch, rather than take a step or ten backwards.
This video comparison showing various different builds of the undead open worlder demonstrates its progression through to launch. Not only do the textures and lighting improve, but so too does the colour palette – the whole thing “pops” much better in the latest build. Which is great, this is how it should be – kudos to creator Sony Bend.
