We’ve got Dying Light 2 news and it’s not another delay! Instead, Techland have revealed the specs you’ll need to play the PC version.
Dying Light 2, which sees you parkouring around a zombie-infested city, dealing with bandits and the undead, is set for a February release. It’ll be landing on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 and while it’s a given it’ll run on the latter two, you’ll need a decent machine to play the PC incarnation.
At least, that’s assuming it arrives this February. It’s been subject to several delays, most notably in January 2020 when, announcing one such delay, Techland were unable to provide any kind of update. We have our fingers crossed February 2022 is when it touches down, but we’ll see.
So how much power do you need? It all depends on what kind of performance you expect. The below chart, provided by Techland, explains the different PC performance/spec tiers, including whether you’ll get ray tracing.
The bare minimum you need is an Intel Core i3-9100 or AMD Ryzen 3 2300X CPU, with Windows 7, 8GB of memory and 60GB HDD, along with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti or AMD Radeon RX 560 4GB.
The video memory could be a sticking point – the PC we’re writing this on has 3GB and Halo Infinite refused to run as we didn’t have the required 4GB. So the rest of the specs aren’t sky high but if you’ve not got a graphics card with 4GB an update could be in order. Or, provided we’re not looking at Cyberpunk 2077 situation, you could play it on Xbox One.
Dying Light 2 will be released for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC this coming February 4th 2022. You can wishlist it on Steam here and it’ll also be available through the Epic Games Store.
