New Days Gone 1.21 Update Brings Weekly DLC Challenges

New Days Gone update version 1.21 is now available for download on PlayStation 4 system. The latest update is huge in terms of size. Days Gone 1.21 weighs 18.5GB in size. That’s because the update is filled with new content.

The latest free Days Gone update 1.21 adds a standalone Challenge Mode to the game. Players can now take part in the game’s first challenge called “Surrounded”. The first challenge will put players against endless Horde of Freakers. To survive, players will have to use weapons, traps, and the environment. Taking down Freakers will increase your timer. Those players who do well in this new challenge will be rewarded with new characters, accents, and rings. New trophies have been also added.

Apart from that, Days Gone version 1.21 also fixes some of the common bugs that players keep pointing out. For example, picking up weapons off the ground is now possible with the triangle button.
