On the PS4 revision history, the only known notes are that this update is to resolve some various bugs.
Days Gone Update 1.70 Patch Notes
- Bug Fixes
We’ll be sure to update the above if anyone from the community spots additional changes, though we suspect this update is most likely to fix any bugs spotted on the PS5 via backwards compatibility. Although being 24-25GB in size, that is odd that the only listed notes are for bug fixes.
While not confirmed by Sony yet, it appears that the company is going back to prep old titles for the PS5 launch as many first party games have recieved updates out of the blue. These include Final Fantasy 7 Remake, God of War PS4, God of War III Remastered, Concrete Genie, The Last of Us Remastered Left Behind, and The Last of Us Remastered. In the case for both The Last of Us and Left Behind Remasters, users reported faster load times, reduced by over 30 seconds and more in other areas.
Since the launch of Days Gone, developers SIE Bend have been working on improving loads and fixing a number of bugs. The experience is certainly far better now than it was when we first reviewed the title last year, though with this new update now out, it will be interesting to see if the load times see a drastic change like The Last of Us 2 Remastered did. We’ll be sure make a comparison post if that’s the case, so stay tuned!
