Days Gone Update Version 1.50 Now Live, Brings New Game+ and Lots More

Sony Bend has pushed out a brand new update for its PS4 zombie-slaying open-world exclusive Days Gone. The latest update, version 1.50, brings the long-awaited New Game+ mode, as well as a whole bevy of tweaks, features, and fixes, as well as a new Weekly Challenge DLC.

The big news here is the addition of New Game+, which will give players the opportunity to start the game again from scratch, but with skills, weapons, upgrades and whatever else was collected on the initial playthrough.

The full details can be found down below. The update is live now, but if you’re not seeing it in your notifications, try pressing ‘options’ on the game’s icon and then selecting ‘check for update’ to force the update to download.

Weekly DLC Challenges

“Black Friday” is our FINAL free DLC challenge! Head back to Lumber Mill and take on a never-ending Horde with a time limit. Use Freaker ears to purchase weapons, equipment, skills, and more! (Unlocks today!)

  • Try your chance at the surprise box for a random chance to get anything from a SAF to our new gun, the Growler.
  • Plan your routes so you can go back and collect ears from horde you killed, don’t leave yourself with no ears or ammo
  • Be patient, you can’t keep a combo going if you are dead.

A reminder that all the challenges we release are planned to stay unlocked indefinitely.
