Days Gone by fans finally have a concrete date for when the game will release on PC.

Publisher Sony and developer Bend Studio announced the date earlier today, Thursday, April 15. The port to PC comes fresh off the heels of another PlayStation to PC release, Horizon Zero Dawn, with great success. Now, it appears Sony is looking to replicate the phenomenon with another former platform-exclusive.

Here's when the wider audience can expect to get their hands on a copy.

Days Gone PC Release Date Announced

Days Gone will launch on PC on May 18. Fans should be able to get a copy from most major PC game retailers such as Steam.

According to the latest trailer released for the port-specific version, Days Gone on PC will have quite a few exclusive features to experience. As long as players have the right hardware backing them, they should be able to take part in all the unique aspects waiting for them.

Kevin McAllister, the Online Community Specialist for Bend Studio, detailed all the advancements coming to PC in a post on the PlayStation blog. PC players will have access to improved visuals and graphics on their device with an unlocked frame rate and ultra-wide--21:9--monitor support. Players will be able to customize every aspect of what they see including "increased level of detail, foliage draw distances and graphical customization."

"Fighting hordes that range up to 500 Freakers at one time has never felt so real," he wrote.

Unsurprisingly, like many other PC titles, Days Gone will also have controller support for licensed and third-party devices. A scenic Photo Mode is included, as well.
