Speculation: Dying Light 2 Hardware Requirement

Share this:

Dying Light, which is an open-world survival-horror video game, provided spectacular gameplay and was widely appreciated for its concepts. This year, Techland is coming up with its sequel Dying Light 2 and it is one of the most anticipated games of the year 2019. The gameplay trailer of the game sparkled the eyes of gamers, as many new concepts are being introduced in the game.

The AAA titles these days are much more complex than those some years ago. A lot of people are anxious about the hardware requirements of Dying Light 2 because many other games with similar graphics require expensive hardware to run at stable frame rates. Such an example would be Assassins Creed Odyssey, where a lot of people had problems with performance and could not achieve stable gameplay despite the game having great mechanisms.

With that being said, the prequel, Dying Light, was designed using Chrome Engine 6. This time the company has come up with the new “C-Engine” which is particularly designed for open-world action adventure and action-RPG games. The company has not yet released the official hardware requirements of the game which is why many people are waiting anxiously. Let’s analyze all the data and see what this title needs for a seamless gameplay experience.

Minimum Requirements

Following are the minimum requirements to achieve 30 FPS at 1080p resolution while using low-medium settings.

OS: Windows 10 64-Bit

Processor: Intel Core i3-4160 / Ryzen 3 1200

Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB / AMD RX 470 4GB

System Memory: 8GB RAM

Storage: 65 GB Hard drive space

Recommended Requirements

Following are the requirements to achieve 60 FPS at 1080p resolution while using a blend of medium and high settings.

OS: Windows 10 64-Bit

Processor: Intel Core i7-4770 / Ryzen 5 1500

Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 / AMD RX 590

System Memory: 16GB RAM

Storage: 65 GB Hard drive space

First of all, let’s talk about the requirements of the processor. Since this is an open-world game, it is pretty much obvious that you need a hefty processor to handle all the processing in the background. To achieve 30 FPS, we will recommend at least a fourth-generation Intel i3 processor while any Ryzen processor will provide you more than 30 FPS easily as even the least powerful Ryzen is equipped with four cores. A generation, or two, older Intel i3 processor would be quite similar in performance but you may experience hiccups during the gameplay. On the other hand, for 60 FPS, a fourth-generation Intel i7 processor should be enough while Ryzen 5 1400 or higher should provide similar performance.

Games are equally dependent on the graphics card as the processor, especially for high graphical settings. Dying Light 2 provides amazing graphics and a lot of graphical processing power is required to achieve that. We will recommend at least Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti for 30 FPS gameplay at 1080p resolution, while GTX 970 would provide slightly better results. For AMD, an RX 470 should be more than enough to handle 30 FPS at 1080p resolution with medium settings. To achieve 60 FPS at 1080p resolution, we will recommend Nvidia GTX 1070, or GTX 980 Ti from the previous generation, although GTX 1060 can also be used with slight variations. If you are looking to buy one, then have a look at these 1060 GPUs. For AMD, RX 590 should handle 60 fps easily at medium settings while R9 Fury X would also be very similar. If you want to go for higher resolutions then you should consider using an Nvidia GTX 1080/Ti or AMD Vega 56/64 as resolution drastically affects the frame rates.

As for the RAM is concerned, high RAM capacity ensures stutter-free gameplay, so we will recommend 12-16 GB RAM for a smooth experience, however, if you have 8GB RAM in your system, you might have to optimize your computer so that maximum amount of RAM can be allocated to your game. But then again, 8GB RAM will not ensure completely stutter-free gameplay, although it will not be much of a problem.

As the game is not yet finalized, we don’t have a particular prediction for the game’s size, however, we believe that around 65GB space should be enough for a game of this league.
