Days Gone’s New Game Plus and extra difficulty modes arrive next week

Three new reasons to return to Bend Studio's post-apocalyptic frontier

I’m excited to announce that Days Gone will be releasing its New Game Plus mode. This has been the most requested fan feature since we launched back in April, and it will be available on 13th September through a downloadable update.
Players can now re-experience the epic journey through Days Gone, this time with the advantage of previously earned weapons, bike upgrades, NERO boosters, skills, recipes, encampment trust and credits, collectibles, and Trophy progress unlocked from the beginning.
New Game Plus can be started from any save game where the “I’m Never Giving Up” storyline has been completed. You can play NG+ on any difficulty level; Easy, Normal, Hard, Survival, or try it in one of our two new difficulty modes: Hard II and Survival II, regardless of the previous difficulty mode. These new difficulty modes are not specific to NG+ and can be experienced by brand new players as well.
Perks from patches earned in challenges continue to carry over to the main game, but now they can be used in NG+ and all difficulty modes. So if you haven’t started any of the Challenge modes yet, I highly recommend going for gold in each challenge in order to maximize your gameplay perks before NG+ releases.
In addition, we have a few new Trophies available to earn in NG+, Hard II and Survival II modes. Including one related to a mysterious new weapon from an agent that only operates in the shadows.

This is the perfect opportunity to return to the Pacific Northwest and replay your favourite horde encounters, take on ambush camps, and clear infestation zones with your expanded arsenal. But remember, this is Days Gone where the world comes for you — constantly.
New Game Plus isn’t the only news we have about Days Gone today; Mondo has created a vinyl of the Days Gone soundtrack. Featuring 25 unique tracks from the game — including 20 by composer Nathan Whitehead — the soundtrack is pressed on 180 gram colored vinyl discs. The soundtrack will be available for pre-order beginning 11th September on their website.

  • Awesome news thanks guys!

  • I got this games last week and I am half way through, it is so much fun. I am glad that I picked it up

  • I am excited to hear this news on Days Gone i have so much fun playing Days Gone and i dont want it to end i want to know will they add continue the storyline missions, hordes side missions, everything about Days Gone. I will want more more more and so much more of Days Gone please dont end it.

    • If there was more story stuff, I’m sure they would have released something by now. Unless they announce now or in the next few weeks that there is a significance DLC story expansion coming out, I don’t see it happening ever. Which is just as well too because it would be amazing if they got working on their next project now and with all they have learned with Unreal Engine 4 with Days Gone, development may go a lot quicker now.

      Hopefully we get a sequel or a Syphon Filter reboot much sooner then expected like with PS5 or a year after its launch.

    • Before the game released, they said in interviews that they plan on DLC but can’t reveal any more info…

      Maybe they meant these updates, but we can’t be sure of that.

  • Will this game and No Mans Sky just release updates as one big update instead of these constant weekly 10-15gb patches. Must of downloaded this game 10 times over in patches.

  • PS Blog. Every time I click on one of your articles, it says I have already “liked” or “hearted” the article, and when I choose a different option, it switches. Why are you making me like articles before I’ve even read them?

    • I think it just highlights it.

      When I came to the article it had highlighted “” (which had 3), but when I clicked another one it stayed at 3.

      Not really sure of the point of it, if you did like it, then you wouldn’t bother clicking if you thought you already did.

  • I really like it when a game continues to get updates, be it a new weapon, challenge or difficulty and you can complete these new additions at your own pace (no limited events). Thank you Bend Studio for your dedication to the game. I had my doubts at first wether it was a game I’d like, but all my doubts were gone when I started playing (especially when I saw the acting, it’s superb!). It’s truly a wonderful game which I still enjoy (have some challenges and trophies to go after). Even when I 100% this game, I’ll probably jump in once in a while just to drive the open road. So again, thank you for the lovely gaming experience, the updates and I hope to see Deacon and the gang some more in the future!

  • it is a good chance to try DG new content… I really like post apocalypse theme and it is a really awesome experience for ps4 players… I even deleted slots and started to discover the Days Gone in details.

  • SONY BEND!?! This is the ONLY thing your game needs to FIX….

    Freaker are BLIND and DEAF…. please fix!!!
