The newest Days Gone weekly challenge has arrived today along with it comes the latest Update, as 1.40 brings with a list of fixed and new accessibility options!
One of the biggest request has been to adjust the analog stick ‘dead zone’ and as of Update 1.40 it is now an option.
Here are all the details:
Weekly DLC Challenges
“Reload” is the next free Horde DLC challenge! You have 3 minutes to take down 300 Freakers by utilizing your environment and a .50 BFG! (Unlocks today!)
The .50 BFG can penetrate through multiple Freakers! Shoot through the Horde and survey your surrounding for any nearby explosive objects
The sub-challenges all tie into different ways of killing the horde. If you want to get gold in all of them at once be sure to manage how many Swarmers you’re killing by any one method
Challenge 10 – Will be unlocked on August 30th
Challenge 11 – Will be unlocked on September 6th
Challenge 12 – Will be unlocked on September 13th
A reminder that all the challenges we release are planned to stay unlocked indefinitely.
Announcement about “Dead Don’t Ride” and “Outride”
Dead Don’t Ride
Due to a scoring error that occurred when we launched this challenge which gave an excessive amount of additional points at the end, we have done a one-time reset ONLY for the “Dead Don’t Ride” leaderboard. We don’t expect to reset these or any leaderboards in the future. We apologize for any of the inconvenience this may have caused and hope to see your new scores on the “Dead Don’t Ride” leaderboards soon!
Any progress regarding patches, progress, and trophies will remain for “Dead Don’t Ride”
An error in our scoring system has caused this challenge to award fewer points than intended. With this patch, the correct amount of points should be rewarded to all players.
Deacon and Boozer will progress as intended in “I Say We Head North”
NPCs will progress properly in “I was Distracted”
Sarah will no longer get stuck in “I’ve Pulled Weeds Before”
In the mission “What Kept Me Going”, the NPC should open the door as planned

DAYS GONE ACCESSIBILITY OPTIONS
Motion Sensor Function Aiming
This feature allows the player to make fine adjustments to aiming by rotating the PlayStation 4 Dualshock 4 controller. It is set to ‘0’ by default (off), but when set to values from ‘1’ to ‘10’, the sensitivity of the Motion Sensor Function Aiming can be adjusted.
Auto-complete QTE (Easy Mode Only)
Turning this feature on inside the Accessibility Options Menu will now automatically complete all the in-game Grapple Button events without the need to press any buttons. Note this feature is accessible in Easy Mode Only.
Controller Dead Zone
Located in the Gameplay Options Menu, we have added the ability to adjust the Dead Zone for your controller. There are 4 adjustments (small, medium, default and large) that allow players to fine tune the stick movement to their liking, even fixing some extreme issues caused by some seasoned controllers.
Our biggest request? A new game+ mode and possibly some refinement to the overall FPS in some areas of the game.
