The best PC settings for Days Gone largely depends on what your gaming rig can handle, and what type of monitor you have.

For those without a gaming monitor, using a screen running at 60hz, you don't need to really go over a smooth 60 FPS, while those with a gaming monitor might want to get up to 120 FPS if their gaming rig allows it.
