Graphics Requirements

To run Dying Light it is recommended that you have a minimum of an NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 560 / AMD Radeon™ HD 6870 (1GB VRAM). The recommended graphic card for the best visual experience is an NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 780 / AMD Radeon™ R9 290 (2GB VRAM) (or better).

Running Dying Light on a graphics card that is above the recommended specifications will allow you to achieve the highest levels of visual detail and the best frame rates. Good frame rates can be beneficial when playing competitive games. A higher frame rate will reduce input lag allowing you to react more quickly to events on screen.

To easily see how your graphics card compares to these specifications use our interactive GPU checker.

CPU Requirements

Dying Light requires that you have a minimum of an Intel® Core™ i5-2500 @3.3 GHz / AMD FX-8320 @3.5 GHz processor. For the best game experience an Intel® Core™ i5-4670K @3.4 GHz / AMD FX-8350 @4.0 GHz (or better) processor is recommended.

Some games require a powerful CPU in order to manage the game engine. The game engine deals with things like processing network communications for multi-player games and the AI of your enemies in strategy games. Some games are considered CPU intensive or CPU dependent. Most modern games offload work directly to the GPU and don't require a powerful CPU for demanding visuals.

To easily see how your CPU compares to these specifications use our interactive CPU checker.

Memory Requirements

It is recommended that you have a minimum of 4 GB RAM DDR3 to run Dying Light. The recommended amount of memory for the best game experience is 8 GB RAM DDR3 (or more).

Having more than the recommended level of RAM for a game will usually not yield much extra gaming performance. However it may be useful if your computer runs other applications in the background.

Operating System Requirements

Dying Light runs on Windows® 7 64-bit / Windows® 8 64-bit / Windows® 8.1 64-bit. The recommended operating system the best compatability is Windows® 7 64-bit / Windows® 8 64-bit / Windows® 8.1 64-bit.

Meeting operating system requirements is not always necessary and can sometimes be overlooked. However running an old operating system will usually mean you may have to install extra drivers and encounter unsupported game crashes.
