Death Stranding's BB juice can now fuel your motorcycle in Days Gone

(Image credit: Sony)

A sizable new update just hit Days Gone, and it allows you to replace your motorcycle's gas tank with a yellow reservoir housing Death Stranding's BB, because that's a thing we needed in 2019. Just in time for the long-awaited launch of Death Stranding on Friday, patch 1.6 also brings themed decals, a frame paint, the option to reset jobs, a few Black Friday changes, and a bunch of tune-ups and fixes.

The new Death Stranding tank is available now, complete with its own little trailer. Watching the trailer, I was a bit surprised the hordes of freakers weren't just a little put off by a guy riding around on a motorcycle with an infant in his gas tank. Dressing your bike up in Death Stranding-themed decals and frame paint completes the look, and if BB's a bit much for your tastes, there's also a much less jarring Death Stranding tank you can equip your bike with. You can unlock both tanks right away in both New Game+ and after starting a new game.

Elsewhere, Bend Studios increased the number of freaker ears you need to repurchase weapons and ammo and performed a one-time reset exclusively to the Black Friday leaderboard, which will go live Friday at 8am PT. Here's the complete patch notes straight from Bend Studios

Accessibility Features

UI High Contrast Color Mode

In our push for accessibility, we’ve added UI COLOR MODE to help visibility and contrast in certain HUD elements in Days Gone. When enabling HIGH CONTRAST, certain key HUD elements on screen will swap color palettes to become easier to see and more visible during the game.

New Linear Option for Aiming

Some of you have requested a linear input curve for Aiming, and we heard you. This will make camera movement more one-to-one with the Right Stick input, instead of using more of the input range for smaller aiming adjustments. You will find this setting in Options->Gameplay->Dead Zone Sensitivity->Linear."
