The Dying Light 2 PC system requirements have been revealed and the game’s developer has given the details for both minimum and recommended settings as well as both settings with ray-tracing on.  

Announced today, Dying Light 2 developer Techland revealed exactly what PC players will need in order to play the highly anticipated sequel in just a few months time. The requirements are organised into four different categories, minimum specs, recommended specs, ray-tracing recommended specs, and ray-tracing minimum specs. 

For the recommended settings, Techland suggests that players have an Intel or AMD CPU running at 3.6 GHz or higher, at least 16GB of RAM, as well as an NVIDIA or AMD graphics card with at least 6GB of dedicated VRAM. Those with lower specs can still play Dying Light 2 though as all you need is Intel Core i3-9100/AMD Ryzen 3 2300X at 3.5 GHz, 8GB of RAM, and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti / AMD Radeon RX 560 GPU. You can see the full specifications below.

There’s not long to wait now until we can get our hands on Dying Light 2, a wait which has felt especially long since the game was delayed a second time from December 7, 2021 to its current release date of February 4, 2022. We did get a new Dying Light 2 gameplay video recently to tide us over though, which showed off new parkour skills and some zombie kills.

Just can’t wait to play this one? Take a look at our Dying Light 2 hands-on preview 2021.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at University, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became GamesRadar's trainee news writer where I get to spread the word about the goings-on in the video game world. My expertise lies in Animal Crossing related topics after spending the last 15 years immersing myself in island life. I also know a thing or two about The Last of Us, and way too much about the Kingdom Hearts series.
