Dying Light packshot image
Dying Light is a first person action survival game with a reportedly vast and dangerous open world. With classic night and day cycles, in the day, you explore urbanised settings that were devastated some unknown epidemic, where you scavenge weapons and equipment to aid in your survival against the hordes of mindless, flesh-hungry enemies the plague has created.

PC System Analysis For Dying Light Requirements
Dying Light requires a Radeon R9 290 graphics card with a Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz or FX-8350 processor to reach the recommended specs, achieving high graphics setting on 1080p. 8 GB will also be needed to achieve the Dying Light rec specs and get 60FPS. Dying Light needs a graphics card thats at least as powerful as a GeForce GTX 560/Radeon HD 6870 paired with FX-8320/Core i5-2500 3.3GHz CPU to match the min specs. This PC setup will deliver 25-35 Frame Per Second at Low graphics setting on 720p resolution. Minimum RAM requirements are 4 GB system memory. GPUs will want to work with DirectX 11 for recommended. We suggest a 8 year old PC to play smoothly.
