Jeff Ross, Game Director of Bend Studio, creators
of Days Gone, in the official blog of Sony announced that in June a major and
absolutely free update will be released for the game, which will bring another
difficulty mode – “Survival”.
Right now, there is available only three of them: “Easy”, “Medium” and “Complicated”.
“Survival” will be a real challenge for most of the players, because they will no longer be able to use some convenient features, including the fast travel around the world, as well as some of the interface elements will be completely disabled for more authentic experience. For example, most of the HUD indicators and mini-map.
Every week after the patch release new challenges will be waiting for survivors, related to bike riding, zombie hordes and some more usual battles. Everyone who complete these challenges will gain valuable rewards and additional items, as well as trophies and new skins for a motorcycle.
