Days Gone Post Launch content detailed; Survival difficulty and weekly challenges coming soon

As we are nearing the release of Days Gone for the PlayStation 4, Sony Interactive Entertainment and Bend Studio revealed today the post launch content the game will be receiving later this year.

There are currently two post launch content that are coming: Survival difficulty and Weekly Challenges.

With the Survival difficulty mode, players will be able to beat the game in a much higher difficulty settings where there will be no fast travel or survival vision. This is for anyone who loves a real challenge.

As for the weekly challenges, it will begin this June. Fans can expect rewards upon completion of the weekly tasks. Luckily, efforts put into clearing these will be rewarded as there are new trophies and unique bike skins that will be given out.

For more information, here’s an overview via the PlayStation Blog:

Survival Difficulty
“Survival” difficulty mode tests players by daring them to beat the story with increased difficulty settings, no fast travel or Survival Vision, and an immersive HUD that removes maps and indicators from the gameplay screen. Every tweak and change made is designed to further immerse players and ratchet up the tension to make this the definitive survival experience.

Weekly Challenges
Each week beginning in June, a new Bike, Horde, or Combat challenge will be deployed to test players even further. These challenges take key gameplay features of Days Gone, and twists them in unique ways to earn additional items and rewards. We’ll give you more information on the specific challenges down the road.

Beating the Survival Difficulty and challenges won’t be in vain—players can earn new trophies and unique bike skins to show off in photo mode to prove they’re bonafide Days Gone survivors.

Days Gone will be released on April 26. Check back with us soon for our review coverage.
