Days Gone is a hit on PC, after being a PS4 exclusive for over 2 years. The open-world survival horror title came out originally in 2019 and is now out on Steam, and Epic Games Store. This is one of the first few PlayStation titles that have slowly made their way to PC, and we hope to see even more. The PC port is very good, and players are given a variety of options to play around with. However, if you want to toggle the Days Gone HUD on PC, you can do so, using this mod.

The Steam curator page for PlayStation games is up, and we’re expecting some big reveal soon. Days Gone’s performance is solid across the board and runs well on a variety of systems. PC users that want to disable the depth of field setting can follow our guide as well. It currently has a Very Positive rating from users on Steam and has launched in a far better state than Horizon Zero Dawn.
