Hop on Your Bike and Take On Days Gone’s First Weekly Challenge

Days Gone  has received its first weekly challenge. It involves facing an endless horde, meaning players will need to bring their best weapons and explosives if they want to survive the Freakers and get a high score worthy of bragging rights. Each week, more challenges will be added into the game, giving fans more of a reason to keep coming back to the virtual Pacific Northwest. As we previously covered, weekly challenges will allow players to earn various rewards.

The update also fixes some lingering bugs too. Lisa won’t be getting stuck in the house during the “Lots Of Sick People” mission. You’ll get to grab your loot in the “You Don’t Want To Know” mission now. Bend has also changed the button used to pick up a weapon from Square to Triangle thanks to player feedback.
