Days Gone Patch Fixes Save Issues

By Rebecca Smith, 4 months ago
Since Days Gone was released last month, Bend Studio has been hard at work trying to fix the bugs and gameplay issues that came with it. Their latest update, patch 1.08, aims to fix some of the issues with the game's auto-save function so that it would no longer crash or create an incorrect number of saves. There were also progression issues with a trio of missions that should have been fixed by the patch.

You can find the full patch notes 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
Once this patch has been released, the team will be slowing down the rate they will be releasing patches. The aim is to release less patches but to include more fixes and improvements with each of them. For now, though, patch 1.08 is available now.
