Days Gone is getting a PlayStation 5 glow up

Deacon blues.

Expansive survival horror Days Gone is going to benefit from the extra power of the PlayStation 5, with Sony Bend's 2019 game running at dynamic 4K and up to 60fps on the soon-to-be-released console.

The news came via Sony Bend's official Twitter account, which also confirmed that PS4 saves would transfer to PS5 - which had been something of a grey area on the new machine, with some games supporting the feature while others, such as Yakuza: Like a Dragon, do not.

Days Gone came out way back in April last year - several worlds away, it now seems - and was a gorgeous romp through a zombie-infested Oregon that, for our reviewer Malindy, turned into a bit of a slog. Maybe the super-quick loading times on PS5 will help make it all a bit more palatable.
