Days Gone 1.21 patch notes introduce a big update for the game - the Surrounds challenge mod. This new DLC is an endless horde mode where you use your skills, traps and all the running away to survive as long as possible. It's the first of a series of new challenge modes that will unlock each week and with you can earn different ranks to unlock new characters, custom accents, and rings. There are even patches that will appear on Deacon's jacket to show you'r achievements. 

On top of that there are some fixes to enemy and NPC AI - Freakers are much better at climbing through windows for example which sounds like a bad thing - as well as changes to item interaction, UI stuff, all the usual tweaks and tune ups. Read the full Days Gone 1.21 patch notes to see what's been added:
