Days Gone Weekly Challenges Have Arrived With Patch 1.21


The Days Gone weekly challenges have begun today with the full game patch update 1.21. Players will find a new challenge awaiting for them each week, and there are plenty of new items to unlock along the way such as character and bike skins, patches and more.

Rocket Chainsaw reviewed Days Gone at launch, giving it 4 stars, calling it, “a game that you’ll either love or hate.

The first Days Gone weekly challenge is called “Surrounded” and will place you against an endless horde of freakers. Players will also fight the clock as it ticks down, with extra time given for each freaker you kill. Plan your assault and destroy as many freakers as you can in “Surrounded” to earn new character skins, patches and rings.
