Method #1 — Update Your GPU Drivers:

Since Days Gone is a fairly new game, both AMD and NVIDIA have released optimized drivers for it. If you’re using a discrete GPU, it is important that you update your drivers to the most up-to-date ones, as they would be compatible with the game. You can download the most up-to-date drivers from your GPU manufacturer’s website; AMD or NVIDIA.

Method #2 — Switch The Audio Output Device:

While this may seem like a joke, we can assure you that it’s not. Courtesy of chrschtian, yo! (post) on Steam, Days Gone only seems to face performance issues on the bike when the audio output device is set to your headphones. We don’t know why this happens, but it’s a rather annoying bug that can be fixed by changing the audio output device to anything but the headphones. If you have external speakers connected or your monitor has built-in speakers, we’d recommend changing the audio output device to that. This seems to be the only solution to this common issue for now!

Method #3 — Update Windows 10:

Every now and then, Microsoft releases updates for Windows 10. These updates optimize the operating system and remove any previous performance issues. If you haven’t updated Windows 10 in a while, this may be your call to do so. You may already have automatic updates on Windows 10 enabled but you can also manually check if your Windows is up-to-date by going to Settings and then to Update & Security.
