Free update launching September 13
By popular demand, Days Gone is joining the ranks of big-name PlayStation 4 titles that offer New Game+ mode. You’ll soon be able to hit the zombie-infested road all over again while retaining your gear and upgrades, and Sony Bend is also adding new difficulty options – Hard II and Survival II – alongside some related trophies. Be on the lookout for a free update scheduled for September 13, 2019.
To transition into New Game+, you’ll just need your save file to be past “I’m Never Giving Up.”
As for what carries over, there’s quite a lot: “weapons, bike upgrades, NERO boosters, skills, recipes, encampment trust and credits, collectibles, and trophy progress.” Patches you earn in Days Gone‘s weekly challenges also work, so if you’re going for a harsher difficulty, perks can make a difference.
IPCA tech, crafted items, materials/crafting items, freaker ears, and animal meat won’t transfer.
These days, New Game+ seems like more and more of a staple, and I’m all about it. Days Gone is long as hell, but after you’ve invested so much time in a world and its characters, it’s tough to say goodbye.
