    Yet another PlayStation-exclusive is coming to PCs. After Horizon Zero Dawn, it was announced that the next game from one of Sony's first-party developers coming to PCs would be the post-apocalyptic title from Bend Studio Days Gone. The studio has shared the first gameplay footage of the upcoming version today along with some details:


    Days Gone's PC version will come with 21:9 ultra-wide monitor support, a "super resolution photo mode" and the ability to use 1st and 3rd party controllers, as well as the classic PC mouse and keyboard combo.

    Today's announcement also revealed the launch date of the PC version: May 18. Days Gone is already available for pre-purchase from Steam and Epic Games Store.

    Hmm, let's hope it'll run well, unlike zero dawn.

    Nah the initial PC release for HZD was universally panned for being a shit port, doesn't matter what build you had. I think at this point they've fixed it though.

    I'm just waiting eagerly for the Bloodborne port that'll come out in the next decade or so

    Never planned to buy this but the game doesn't look bad in the trailer

    even with a 3090 the pc port would run like shit if you had the game without any post-launch updates

    If memory serves, this is the Game that boasted a complex Horde system with some interesting path-finding for their Zombies to chase you on.

    The Trailer doesn't actually show where a Keyboard and Mouse would serve the Player better in this Game, since there are melee fighting and riding parts where nobody will want to switch between Controllers, especially mid-Zombie Horde attack.

    Because of that, it feels a little gimmicky; what isn't would be some Mod Support.

    incorrect, GTAIV (from 2008) run like shit on my high-end PC (micro stutter, textures flickering ect...)

    I had to use mods to mitigates most of the issues

    Never had issues with the game. Not in my newer rig, nor in my old computer. I played it with an i7 960 from 2008 and and i7 7700k, and used a GTX 970, a GTX 1080 and in the end an RTX 3090. Never had any issue with any of them. I didn't played it on launch day but started playing in the beginning of the following month, so there may have been patches and fixes launched meanwhile and they updated the game for a big while after release.

    Either way, it's an unfair comparison that on release day things went smoother on PS4 than PC. It was a game developed for PS4 hardware exclusively and optimize to it. It being ported to PC with a good optimization is a feat. There are two or 3 variations of PS4 hardware and a universe of PC combinations. It's only natural that upon release day bugs, errors and need dog optimization surface on the PC. It's not a planned conspiracy.

    Also, as I remember, Death Stranding 1.01 patch was around 5GB of bug fixing material. So saying that launch went smooth isn't exactly truthful.

    You really don't have to do side missions in the game. The guy could just gallop through the main missions and ignore the rest. And unlike most RPGs, side missions are surprisingly high on production values on HZD. Nor you need to harvest much. Arrow and basic ammunition are more than abundant in the game. If he critiqued the need of inventory management because it'd fill so easily I'd get that and agree, but harvesting? Come on...

    The most interesting thing about this announcement is that, a little while back, someone "leaked" that Days Gone would get a PC port this year...but so would Bloodborne towards the autumn months. I still don't trust rando "leaks" like that, but hey it's a promising start ;O;

    Shame Days Gone is meh as fuck though, would've rather seen another PS exclusive personally. Oh well, as long as Sony keeps sticking with their promise to bring more exclusives to PC I won't complain.

    Horizon was optimized quite a bit since release, both at driver and game level.

    Sony already showed us that Demons Souls is coming to pc, and unless they change their mind I expect an announcement soon.

    Its not the multiple configurations that cause issues with the pc version, thats just pr talk mostly. Multiple configurations are annoying for testing, and you might get weird specific bugs, but its no excuse when games all use APIs to detach from specific configurations. Its really just AMD driver and Nvidia driver, you dont code to a specific video card model...

    Days gone ran very poorly on ps4 day 1, which is just another example of how these things happen regardless of platform.

    This looks like the most generic Zombie game ever made, no wonder Sony axed a sequel. Almost mistake it for one of those shitty Walking Dead games.
