'Days Gone' (ALL) Will Not Support DLSS Or Ray Tracing - Screens

by Rainier on May 10, 2021 @ 10:47 a.m. PDT

Days Gone is an open-world action game set in the high-desert of the Pacific Northwest two years after a mysterious global pandemic has decimated the world, killing most but transforming millions into mindless, feral creatures.

Survivors live in a world where resources are scarce, violence and murder are common and Freakers roam the wilderness.

Players face this violent, new world as Deacon St. John, a bounty hunter, a Drifter who lives in the lawless wilderness outside the civilian encampments. Deacon survives by using skills learned before the world ended, riding for the Mongrels MC, an outlawed motorcycle club, where violence and mayhem were part of the riding the open road.

At the center of it all, Days Gone is an exploration of how any of us would react to these harsh conditions, and exploration of loss, love, friendship, revenge and desperation – learning that surviving isn't living. For Deacon especially, it's a struggle to ensure that hope never dies.


While Days Gone on PC will support ultra-wide monitors for 21:9 and 32:9, including cinematics and UI, developer Bend Studio revealed that it will not support NVIDIA's DLSS or ray tracing tech.

Days Gone on PC includes the same Photo Mode from PlayStation, and now includes an upgraded Super Resolution feature to capture Days Gone in higher resolution. It will also fully supports Achievements, the option to change your field of view (FOV), up to a maximum of 100 degrees, keyboard and mouse, and includes support with re-binding every action, including alternates and menu navigation. Plus, simultaneous keyboard/mouse and controller input.

Days Gone on PC allows for multiple display customizations with increased level of detail, foliage draw distances, graphical customization and more. Take a look at the PC in-game screenshot below, displaying the Graphics menu with the various settings you can customize.

  • Emergent Gameplay – Featuring fully explorable environments and dynamic AI enemies, players will rely on their own abilities to strategize, craft weapons and tools, explore the world, and engage in combat. With almost every car, building and environment searchable, [Bend] delivers emergent gameplay possibilities, making a player's approach to combat and discovery a vital part of the experience.

  • Stunning, Dynamic Graphics – Using the power of the Unreal Engine 4, Bend Studio has developed a high volume of rendering and gameplay technology to deliver an incredibly realistic open world experience. Realistic weather effects, such as rain, wind, snow and day-night cycles impact the gameplay. The game's lighting is all real-time and reacts dynamically, the way the human iris does, as players move from one location to the next.
