Following the release of Sony’s former PlayStation 4 exclusive on PC, a new Days Gone PC vs PS5 comparison video has surfaced online.

Sony’s Bend adventure action title is now also available on PC via Steam, complete with additional PC-specific features including ultra-wide monitor support, unlocked framerates, and improved visuals. In addition, the PC version allows users to eliminate chromatic aberration and increase the Field-of-View.

So how does the PC version compare to the original version running on Sony’s platform? YouTube channel ElAnalistaDeBits has compared the PS4 Pro version (running on PS5 in BC mode) with the PC version of the game running on an NVIDIA RTX 3080 GPU. Based on this analysis, we’re looking at a pretty great PC port of an already incredible title.

On PS5, Days Gone runs in 4K via checkerboarding, whereas, on PC, the game renders in native 4K resolution.

You’ll find the comparison video down below.

As can be seen in the comparison video, the differences in draw distance are pretty apparent. The same applies to the vegetation density and character textures. Although less striking, we can also see improvements to shadow quality in the PC version.

Expansive Open World Action – Exemplifying truly free-form gameplay, [Bend] offers freedom to explore, strategize and play “your way” in the vast high-desert of the Pacific Northwest. The hazardous environments, filled with carved out ridges, mountains, caves, cliffs mines and river basins, deliver a breathtaking backdrop to an equally diverse style of gameplay.

Emergent Gameplay – Featuring fully explorable environments and dynamic AI enemies, players will rely on their own abilities to strategize, craft weapons and tools, explore the world, and engage in combat. With almost every car, building and environment searchable, [Bend] delivers emergent gameplay possibilities, making a player’s approach to combat and discovery a vital part of the experience.

Stunning, Dynamic Graphics – Using the power of PlayStation 4 and Unreal Engine 4, Bend Studio has developed a high volume of rendering and gameplay technology to deliver an incredibly realistic open world experience. Realistic weather effects, such as rain, wind, snow and day-night cycles impact the gameplay. The game’s lighting is all real-time and reacts dynamically, the way the human iris does, as players move from one location to the next.
