New Difficulty Mode and Weekly Challenges Headline Days Gone Post-Launch Support

Published

Days Gone

As might be expected, Days Gone will receive robust post-launch support, including a free difficulty mode and weekly challenges beginning in June.

Taking to the PlayStation Blog, game director Jeff Ross outlined in brief what players can expect from the game in the months after launch.

The major update will be the addition of Survivor difficulty, a mode that primarily aims to make the gameplay experience more realistic. In this mode, the heads-up display will be minimised through the removal of a mini-map and indicators, alongside increased difficulty and the absence of fast travel and the Survival Vision mechanic.

Meanwhile, the weekly challenges are broken into three categories: Bike, Horde, and Combat. These challenges “take key gameplay features of Days Gone and twists [sic] them in unique ways to earn additional items and rewards.”

Among the rewards for completing this added content will be unique bike skins and trophies.

With the game set to launch this Friday, the media blitz for Days Gone is in full swing. Most recently, a new video emerged showing off the incredible weather effects in the game, while creative director John Garvin also recently opened up about the name.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

Published

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain abilities by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
