Today marks the debut of the PC version of Days Gone, an action game created by Bend Studio (Sony's in-house development team) that has previously been available only on PlayStation consoles.

Days Gone - selected reviews

According to the reviewers, the PC version of Days Gone is quite a good work. Journalists praise the good technical condition, great graphics and engaging storyHowever, some of them complain a bit about not very innovative gameplay, as well as open world and activities which do not stand out in any way against other positions from the genre.

"Days Gone is the perfect PlayStation game to make its way to PC. It was already a beautiful game (on the consoles - ed. note), but held back by the PS4 and PS4 Pro. On PC, Days Gone gets it’s chance to flourish, running at uncapped frame rates, high resolutions, and touting an FOV slider. While it is missing some cool next-gen upgrades like ray tracing and DLSS, Days Gone runs nearly flawlessly on PC, and serves as a testament to Bend’s tradecraft. Even if you’ve already played the game on PS4 or PS4 Pro, it’s worth jumping back into the shoes of Deacon St John on PC to massacre a freaker horde at the highest level of performance possible," David Burdette, GamingTrend (Score - 90/100)

"Days Gone provides a good level of challenge and an interesting story, which should make PC users glad to see the game ported from PS4. Technically, it's a pretty good game, with excellent graphics and a good soundtrack. It also gives the impression of being stable. There are a few minor quirks here and there, but the game should keep you busy killing monsters for a while," Paolo Besser, The Games Machine (Score - 8.8/10).

"Riding and maintaining your bike is great—the boring world, dull missions, and overly serious tone, not so much," Andy Kelly, PC Gamer (Score - 63/100).
