Days Gone Adds Dead Don't Ride Weekly Challenge

Bend Studio presents Dead Don't Ride weekly challenge for Days Gone to drop-off survivors in a golf cart.

With a clear vision of future roadmap, developer SIE Bend Studio and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment planned to introduce 12 challenges on 12 weeks for following launch of their PlayStation 4-exclusive game Days Gone.

First DLC pack of the game hit PlayStation Store back in June to make sure that PS4 community members would have fun in some weekly challenges with protagonist Deacon St. John and now comes a newest arcade-like mode "Dead Don't Ride".

Deacon would have to step out of his trusty drifter bike for once and take wheel of an electric golf cart to pick up waiting passengers from places around Salome Hotsprings and drive them to locations right on time in this latest challenge.

However, you are practically an Uber driver in post-apocalyptic Oregon and have to get the best passenger ratings possible to get a high score. Timely deliveries are a top priority and you should always try to outrun the clock.

Also, while picking them up on your way; try to park as close as you can to a waiting survivor because it earns you bonus points for overall challenge. Keep an eye on their satisfaction meter to see if you get extra time, unless there are unhappy drop-offs.

Although not all deliveries are piece of cake, some might be a tough cookie and you pick-up ring color indicates difficulty level with yellow, orange and red. Distance to destination or complicated navigation will dictate difficulty.

Ride ain't over yet as you would come across Freakers in your way but need not to be alarmed and not because your golf cart has infinite boost. Driving over Swarmer on delivery routes will reward you additional two seconds in challenge clock.

There will be a total of 36 passengers waiting to get their destined places and successfully making all deliveries will earn you 2,000 points for every remaining second on the clock, so picking best paths to drop-off locations is important.

For Bronze or better rankings, players would earn "Hit and Run" patch that would reduce impact rate of bike or golf carts whenever they come in contact with enemy on road and have some extra time on clock to do a better score.

Days Gone Free DLC Out Now

Free DLC for PS4-exclusive game Days Gone brings Survival Mode difficulty, Weekly Challenges and much more.

Even before releasing action-adventure survival horror game Days Gone for PlayStation 4, developer SIE Bend Studio and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment announced its free post-launch DLC to arrive on June 2019.

Take a quick look at what Bend Studio has bundled in for you in brand-new DLC pack and then dive straight into it.

First of all, Survival Mode has been added to test your skills and it is an improvement of current hard mode. Surviving in wilderness will be more difficult than ever but there are new bike skins and trophies as rewards for beating the difficulty.

Those relentless Freaker enemies harder are than before and worst part is, you simply cannot get by them with Fast Travel. An immersive HUD removes all enemy awareness indicators and that just increases tension of getting swarmed at any time.

RELATED: Days Gone Pre-order Bonuses and Special Edition

Generally, players will not be seeing the HUD at all times but you can use Survival Vision to briefly activate it. Weekly Challenges are coming later in June regarding bike, combat or horde and each with their unique rules to play.

For completing these tasks, players would receive wearable patches that give gameplay perks like extended health, quicker stamina recharging, less focus cost, better durability for melee weapon, gun accuracy and much more.

Moreover, you can stack these advantages and carry over patches to main game if you wish to. Options to get rank and earn credits to purchase character or bike skins and get wearable Rings for more effective gameplay perks are also there.

Though you can benefit from wearing Rings to get better at challenges, a player can only equip Deacon with two of them at once. Player are to adept themselves with more tactical decisions and most importantly, Rings do not carry over to main game.

Bend Studio has planned out 12 challenges to release on 12 weeks, which will definitely increase its replay value to fans. Despite what many outlets were telling about the game, it already outsold God of War in Japan within one month of its launch.

Days Gone free DLC opens up new opportunities to get a better score with new rewards by replaying challenges over and over. Players can compete with each other against friends or anyone else online through leaderboards.

Days Gone Outsold God of War at Launch in Japan

Sales number is seemingly higher for survival horror game Days Gone than God of War at its launch week in Japan.

Although action-adventure survival horror title Days Gone has its fair share of issues with in-game bugs and biased reviews from some major outlets, it has been voted by fans as one of the best new game launched in April 2019.

This latest PlayStation 4-exclusive game from developer SIE Bend Studio and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment has failed to satisfy Western audience at large but looks like, players in Japan loved it even more than God of War.

According to recent reports, the game has sold an overall amount of 114,319 copies in Japanese market on its first week of launch, which is almost three times over for 46,091 units sold by last year's critically acclaimed game God of War.

Of course sales numbers of Japan is not necessarily going to bring major shift in Europe and United States territories but it remains a statement to those who sidelined it as another zombie game and even gave it a tepid review.

Besides, it became Players' Choice winner for April in an official poll while remaining one of the top downloaded games at PlayStation Store, only behind NetherRealm's newest entry Mortal Kombat 11 and ahead of World War Z.

It may not have been able to keep up the hype initially created after an official announcement at E3 2016 and may not contain a gripping story, Bend Studio is still committed to their fan-base and promised to bring free post-launch DLC in June.

Often time players are very critical about technical flaws in major AAA video games, especially when it took a seven year period in development and delayed official release window a few times over before launching on April 26.

Despite its flaws, Days Gone offers you a pretty decent gameplay experience to enjoy a ride with outlaw Deacon St. John in a world ravaged by a global pandemic that turned every infected person into a zombie like rabid creature.
