The patch notes for update 1.08 disclose the fixes Bend Studio has implemented to remove the intrusive and game-breaking bugs that have plagued Days Gone.

Days Gone has been out for a couple of weeks now, and Bend Studio remains dedicated to ironing out the kinks. According to the patch notes, the latest update – 1.08 – fixes some major game-breaking bugs.

The newest member of the PlayStation 4 family has its share of flaws, but it’s still a solid foundation that will catapult Bend Studio to bigger and better things.

Although the “selfish” characterisation of protagonist Deacon St. John has been criticised, the biggest issue with Days Gone is its bugs and glitches.

Update 1.07 introduced some game-breaking faults, but update 1.08 delivers a number of crucial fixes.

Bend Studio has frequently been in touch with the Days Gone community over on Reddit, and they have provided the patch notes for update 1.08.

The patch notes can be found below:

Progression Issues

  • Fixed an issue where players wouldn't be able to save, fast travel, or pause after triggering the cinematic to "I've Had Better Days".
  • Fixed the issue that prevented players from completing ”Afraid of a Little Competition?”. Players may need to move as far back to where the Bounty Collector Merchant resides and return to the mission objective to trigger the cinematic.
  • Fixed an issue where players were unable to complete “Searching For Lisa”. Players that were impacted will now see the Mission Complete screen.

General Fixes

  • Overall improvements have been made to streaming and performance
  • Audio desync issue during cinematics have been resolved
  • Auto-save function will now save the correct number of saves to your save cloud account
    • With this update, we did not delete any of your current auto-saves. You can go into (Settings) > [Application Saved Data Management] > [Auto-Upload] to manage your auto-saves for Days Gone
    • The game should no longer crash when attempting to overwrite the oldest auto-save
  • Patch updates now retain your Difficulty settings
  • Fixed various bugs and miscellaneous crashes

Instead of continuing to provide updates at a rapid speed, Bend Studio will now slow down the number of patches to add more fixes, features, and optimisations with each update.

Days Gone is available for PlayStation 4 only.
