Days Gone Goes Straight to Number One

Sony Bend’s new zombie epic Days Gone has rocketed straight to the number one slot of the PlayStation 4 game charts.

Days Gone Game Play

The long awaited and highly anticipated open world action game has beaten Mortal Kombat 11 which was released on the same day.

Days Gone is also the third biggest PS4 exclusive launch title behind God of War and Marvel’s Spiderman both of which launched last year and are also Sony published games.

The release of Days Gone and Mortal Kombat 11 has seen game charts Titan, FIFA 19 get pushed down a place and knocked last week’s number one, World War Z off of the top spot.

Days Gone has been in development for a long time, with full production beginning in 2015.

The game is an open world action story, blended with typical survival horror elements similar to Resident Evil.

Set in the Pacific North West of the United States, the story sees the player take control of an outlaw protagonist named Deacon St. John.

Deacon must make efforts to survive two years after a zombie plague wiped out most of humanity, turning them in to nocturnal, undead cannibals.

Days Gone has been given mediocre scores across the board from sites such as IGN, Gamespot and Game Informer, citing repetitive activities, a lack of character development and some serious bugs as the reason for lower scores.

However, some sites have reported an excellent story line, great visual and audio elements and satisfying combat as good reasons to play this game.

Days Gone is out now exclusively for PlayStation 4.

Mortal Kombat 11 Patch Adds Free Currency

A large patch has been released today for Mortal Kombat 11 on PlayStation 4.

The latest installment in the hugely popular fighting game from Nether Realm Studios was released earlier this week and has gone to the top spot of the Xbox One game charts and to number two of PS4 game charts, losing out to Days Gone.

The patch addresses various issues overall, including multiple game stability bugs and adjustments to Tower of Time mode.

According to the official patch notes, some of the main issues include:

  • Connectivity related fixes
  • Move list and frame data fixes
  • Online matchmaking fixes
  • AI adjustments
  • Crash related issues
  • Increased Koin rewards for Ranked Matches
  • Better rewards in The Krypt

Tower of Time Adjustments include the following:

  • Adjusted AI
  • Opponent health tweaks at higher level Towers
  • Daily Tower modifier adjustments
  • Increased Koin rewards
  • Difficulty adjustments
  • Decreased Konsumable cool downs

Mortal Kombat 11 has been released to very high review scores across the board including 9 out of 10 from IGN.

Like Mortal Kombat X, the game includes an indulgent story line that allows you to take control of multiple characters including Mortal Kombat legends Kung Lao and Raiden and Jax.

Shang Tsung requires a separate purchase and Shao Kahn only available as a pre order bonus.

Not very fair to say the least.

The game however does include 24 playable characters with three brand new characters Cetrion, Geras and Kollector.

Along with the patch comes some good news as all Mortal Kombat 11 players will get the following:

  • 500,000 Koins
  • 500 Hearts
  • 1,000 Souls
  • 1,000 Time Crystals

This comes as kind of an apology for the initial micro transaction set up of the game, which is now being looked in to by Nether Realm Studios.

The patch is available now for PlayStation 4 with other platforms soon to follow.

Mortal Kombat 11 is available across multiple platforms including PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC and Nintendo Switch.

New Black Ops 4 DLC Details

Call of Duty’s latest Operation DLC has launched today for PlayStation 4.

Operation Spectre Rising brings with it a ton of new maps, a new Specialist, maps and an update to Blackout.

Black Ops 4 Spectre Rising

Maps include Artifact in Iceland, Masquerade in Bangladesh and WMD from the original Black Ops in Russia.

Also included in the new DLC are weapons, Black Market items, multiplayer game modes and new additions to Zombies.

    Hello Michael,

    WOW! The title of Days Gone Goes Stright To Number 1 really says it all. Some games just have that magic and engrossing quality I say half the planet was waiting for its release lol.

    I am impressed to see that Mortal Combat is still going? 11? Well, I missed all ensuing versions since the original way back in the 90’s.

    I know I keep on saying this Michael with some of my comments on your posts, but this year is looking very good indeed, for making my own games room. State of the art gaming all the way. I really hope I have no the knack for it. I played something like Days Gone with my partners kid – he battered all over the game! Oh man, these games are so advanced now. I can not take in all the information at once, look at my map, know the meaning of those dots, and then suddenly someone has just killed me out of nowhere lol.

    Damn, what happened to left, right, shoot and jump? Thanks again Michael and this really was a great article to read and certainly be back here for my gaming purchases going forward.

      Thanks for commenting Phil.

      Mortal Kombat has come a long way, but in a lot of ways, the game is now simpler. Some believe this is a bad thing. I do not.

      I always struggled with the original versions back in the day and I always had that one friend that would win with the same move over and over.

      Days Gone has been a surprise, going straight to the top like that. When you build your games room, make sure you get a comfy chair because playing Days Gone and Mortal Kombat will certainly have you sitting there for a while.
