Dying Light 2 system requirements

You don't need a powerful PC to get stuck into Dying Light 2, but a gaming SSD could help significantly improve the experience

The Dying Light 2 system requirements have finally arrived, giving you ample time to prepare your gaming PC ahead of its February release date. While the barrier to entry for Techland’s new zombie game is quite low, the hardware requirements quickly become much steeper if you plan to turn on the game’s ray tracing features.

Yes, that’s features plural. Ray traced global illumination, reflections, and shadows can all be turned on to push Dying Light’s visual fidelity even higher, providing you have a compatible GPU. However, turning any of these settings on will incur a performance cost. To combat this, Techland recommends you equip your system with one of the best graphics cards on the market, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080.

Thankfully, Nvidia DLSS upscaling technology should help to boost fps if your rig’s struggling to maintain your target frame rate. Unfortunately, there’s no word of AMD FSR support, so those with Radeon GPUs aren’t quite as fortunate.

Here are the Dying Light 2 system requirements:

Minimum (1080p/30fps) Recommended (1080p/60fps)
