Days Gone is coming to PC later this year, and irrespective of whether you’re delighted or disgruntled about the prospect of PlayStation 4 ports coming to desktop computers, we now have access to the first details regarding the re-release. The official Steam page for the title – it’ll also be available from the Epic Games Store – reveals that you can expect ultra-wide monitor support, unlocked framerates, and improved graphics.
Obviously, outside of these additions, this is the exact same game as the one already available on console, so there are no additional features or modes, although it will ship with all of Sony Bend’s excellent post-release content, including the arcade-style Challenge mode which is a ton of fun. Are you planning to pick this up on PC, or did you have your fill of Deacon St John already? Let us know below.

I had my fill of Deacon St John the moment I saw him, but this game was surprisingly great despite its characters.
@Pleasance I was literally about to type that 😂😂
I want to buy a pc now, but the price is too high.
The definitive edition of the game, can't wait to play all of playstations exclusives in ultrawide with the best framerates and graphics.
"The best place to play" lol
And a few days after release, mods on:
... the list goes on
My only question is where's the PS5 port
@SweetSummerShunv It’s the PC crowd, there’ll be nude mods for female zombies before they get round to Deacon.
So I hope/expect they'll release a patch for the game on PS5 to also include improved graphics.
Already installed this on ps5, all I need is 60 fps 😃
One of my favorite plats that I've gotten.
I won't buy it again for PC but glad more people will get to play this game and hope a DG2 comes out soon.
@d0a01xz It already got a PS5 patch for 60FPS. A month or so ago.
You're welcome PC crowd, I beta tested the game for you so now enjoy the definitive edition at 8K with ray tracing. We've been reduced to glorified beta testers for Playstation exclusives now 🙄
@Juanalf Damn 2 whole years is pretty long for a beta
I can't wait for the mods on this game honestly. I didn't think too highly of the game when I played it around 2 years ago but the basic premise sounds like a gold mine for modders
@Juanalf Relax my man, Sony just trying to make some paper. They're a business after all. Don't take it so serious and enjoy your games
@wiiware it is 60fps on ps5 already
F*** us then I guess, clearly PC is top priority now. 🤦♂️
Would be nice if Sony had the option for publishers to include PC versions on PS Store with the PlayStation version. Buy Days Gone on PS4 and get the PC version included. Some people might just buy the PlayStation version instead of the Steam or whatever store front version. Although publishers might not like the idea that some people won't buy more than one version (there's still people who need a copy of GTA).
Clearly PC is becoming the "go to" for games. It gets the games consoles don't, and now it's getting the Xbox and PS games as well. So kudos to the "master race". That said, I have a life, job, family, priorities...so PC gaming isn't my thing. Let the master race play it out in their mom's basement. It's just sad that Sony is taking the money away from the master race's moms (because we know who's really paying for things).
I consider it as treason since no visual improvements were released for PS5. Doubling framerate is great but PS5 can do more than that.
Sony start to abandon thier console already
And treat ps players like third class citizens
I'm just wondering if PushSquare is going to report on all the PC ports and updates and maybe PC reviews and go multi platform too.
@twitchtvpat Yup I know, already installed it on ps5 😃
Would be nice if this port used enhanced textures etc if they found their way to the ps5
still no mention on gog lol
hey guys go and learn how to build a pc ,you can still build a good gaming pc out of 3 to 4 year old parts and still have a good picture to play games on. budget parts for builds are good to. its fun.
@Floki It didn't get 'improved graphics with increased Level of Detail and draw distance, higher FOV ' not reported here but, elsewhere for the PC version.
It's just the PS4 Pro version at 60fps on PS5.
Don't care for news on ps exclusive games moved to pc, shouldn't be happening in my opinion should be staying exclusive..kind of what the word means
How about sony just remove the " exclusive tag and just add exclusive...for now
"All of"? 😂 riiiiight! Keep dreaming.
Reason more to NOT BUY ps5... exclusives should be available only on original system
"Sony doesn't tell me I'm special any more, guess I'll go buy a gaming PC instead"
Yeah good luck with that, Bucko... As in good luck building/buying a remotely comparable gaming PC for a similar cost as the PS5 (as in around £359 - because gaming PCs don't really come with disc drives any more). Let alone, good luck finding a graphics card at all, at the moment
Owning a console doesn't make us special, it's just the most convenient way to play games. It's convenient because:
all this "muh exclusives, why should I even bother buying a playstation next time" is mostly the whinings of people who don't understand why/that they've got it good (maybe not "ultra high graphics gaming PC" good, but certainly "performance at price point and first access to exclusives" good)
I lool forward to replaying Days Gone on my brand-new PS5.
I believe all this new features are there also, aren't they?
It's smart marketing though.
The two exclusives that have gone to PC so far are well passed their peak in sales, and there's interest in sequels for both.
Dangle the exclusives library in front of a new audience like this, then release the sequels on PS5. 🤷♂️
And besides, singleplayer, narrative driven exclusives are clearly Sony 's focus. Nobody has anything to worry about here. It's an extra injection of cash for the IP.
We're more likely to get a sequel for this game now.
This is so disappointing. I played the game 2 years ago and thought I had really enjoyed it, but now this release on PC has meant I didn't actually enjoy it 2 years ago after all. Also means I can't enjoy any other PS game knowing in about 2 or 3 years time it will be on PC. Its why I don't go the cinema anymore as knowing it will be out on disc release with added extras means the big screen experience is rubbish and makes me so mad.
In my protest I'm going to screw Sony with their £450 machine and 2 years advance access to some games and buy myself a £2000 PC and sit waiting 3 years until those PS games turn up. I win Sony!
Is joey deacon in it too?
@Juanalf to be fair to Sony, their first party games are usually quite polished at release.
The games can only look/play as good as the console they’re made for.
If we/consumers want a relatively cheap console, there have to be sacrifices somewhere. The alternative is, Sony release a mega-expensive console, no one buys it and these games don’t get made.
The games look/play great on PS4/5 anyway.
@Juanalf Exactly what I wanted to type. That I see future comments from PC fanboys like " Thanks for beta testing PS players, now this is the real deal". Always like that under Rockstar's posts, they go from begging and crying for PC versions of GTAV & RDRII to all of a sudden entitled clowns belittling console versions when theirs is released.
Yeah, keep frustrating us PS fans even more by mentioning shiny details.
@RawnDawn Jealous of that. It was one of the few times I went for the platinum but one of the innumerable bugs insisted I hadn’t cleared all the hordes when I absolutely had. Maddening to say the least 😭
pc owners are in for a treat!
get this game... it's that good.
@Juanalf Yep, pretty much.
And this site is basically going to become almost as focused on PC ports as it is PS games. Great.
PushSquare or PressSpace.
@RawnDawn if DG2 come out, it will be exclusive.. wait... Horizon Zero Dawn went on PC when they said that Forbidden West will come... does this means the same in this case🤔
A game came out two years ago on a already 5/6 year old console, which was relatively obsolete by PC standards within the first year or so and people are surprised its looking better.
I played it when it came out, enjoyed it and moved on.. I got what I wanted out of the experience with the limitations of the hardware.
PS5 should get these upgrades where possible like Horizon Zero Dawn should really have gotten a PS5 upgrade announced last year.
PC ports are fine but Sony needs to be careful not to make it seem like PC is a higher priority than PS.
@d0a01xz don't need it.PS5 has PS4 BC, and recently received a patch. Days Gone runs at 60fps on FPS, instead of 30fps on PS4. I think there was some graphics upgrades too.
Seriously, seriously showing your age there mate!
Loved the game 2 years ago, great story and characters and loved the hordes. Had my fun, don't care if PC gamers get to play it now. More money for Sony to continue making brilliant games and it advertises the Sony brand to millions of PC players! Makes excellent business sense to me. As long as they don't go day and date my box under my TV doesn't get undervalued. Would much rather play the games when they are released than have to wait two years and play them with a few extra bells and whistles.
😄-I Platinumed this game on the PS5, it was the FIRST game I downloaded from the PlayStation+ collection on PS5 after Platinuming Astro's Playroom.
I wanted to purchase it back when it released but I kept hearing that it had problems running smoothly even on the PS4 Pro, so I held off purchasing it and glad I did, because it ran smooth and beautifully at 4k 60fps on the PS5 in backwards compatibility mode, so I'm looking forward to a FULL on PS5 Version of Days Gone Part 2!
I don't understand why people Rag-On and complain about the game in any way, it's character's and story are solid enough and the actual gameplay is a blast to play!
I say bring on more SAWMILL HOARDS! (500+ Freakers) + PS5= Butter smooth 60fps gaming!
PC gamers will have a blast playing it!
Don't forget the Randy Savage zombie horde.
@lacerz "That said, I have a life, job, family, priorities...so PC gaming isn't my thing. Let the master race play it out in their mom's basement."
HAHAHAHAHA, you lot are so pathetic hahaha :'D
Hi there fellow gamers.
Yes, I have played and thoroughly enjoyed Days Gone and I recomend it to everyone who owns a PS5 and have PS Plus subscrition, and now to those who have a high end PC.
No, I will not purchase the game again to play on my High End PC, since I already have the special edition on PS4 and the PS Plus digital version as well.
Having said that, I would love a sequel for this great game on my Shiny new PS5, so I can fight a horde of freakers and feel every bullet fired, every hit of melee weapons and every bite on Deacon when they swarm at him 😜
Cheers, stay safe and happy gaming to us all
@nessisonett i can get behind that.
All Sony has to do is add Ultrawide support, improved graphics, and unlocked framerates to the ps5 version and nobody will have anything to complain about :^)
@HiglyPoeticOryx I mean I guess?
I honestly don't give a flying duck if it comes to PC or not hahaha xD
I'm sure DG2 will do so and if you only game on PC then go for it, I'm sure it'll be good if not better than the first one.
Just game on whatever platform you prefer lol
@HUMPERDOO Ufff xd
Now that sucks big time, sorry to hear about that mate xd
@Pleasance despite it's characters? Huh?
@CmShepard still the same
@SweetSummerShunv nude mod of deacon?😦😍
Aside from the awful, dated main character archetype, I quite enjoyed this game, but when I went back for a second play through is was a real slog and I gave up. A ‘once only’ game for me.
Have a cry why don’t you.
Wow... the number of fanboy babies whining about PC ports is astounding.
Sony has ported some games to PC which are literally years old.
Are some PC players snobs? Sure. Who cares. Are the PC ports going to have better graphical options. Well duh...
Again, who cares. Are you losing anything? The PS hardware is only capable of so much, this is known by everyone who buys a console. They become technologically obsolete faster than PCs.
Anyone with a PS4 got to play this handful of games ages ago.
If you played and enjoyed the games on PS4 then what difference does it make?
Accusing Sony of not prioritising the PlayStation is absolutely ridiculous and childish. Not to mention entirely false.
This kind of platform tribalism is so dumb.
