Dying Light PC specs released

Dying Light PC specs released

 

 The Dying light PC recommended and minimum specs have been released on Steam, and these goes beyond even the recommended specs for Assassins Creed Unity requiring an R9 290 or GTX 780 and 16GB of System memory to run at the highest settings. 

There is no doubt that the Dying light is a very pretty game, just look at the screenshots and videos. The question now is if these recommendations are over-estimated, or under estimated like Assassin's Creed Unity where even the most beastly of machines had issues.

  

Dying Light PC specs released

 

MINIMUM:

    • OS: Windows® 7 64-bit / Windows® 8 64-bit / Windows® 8.1 64-bit
    • Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-2500 @3.3 GHz / AMD FX-8320 @3.5 GHz
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM DDR3
    • Hard Drive: 40 GB free space
    • Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 670 / AMD Radeon™ HD 7870
    • Sound: DirectX® 10

Now witness true horror in the form of the Dying Light “recommended” specs.

RECOMMENDED:

    • OS: Windows® 7 64-bit / Windows® 8 64-bit / Windows® 8.1 64-bit
    • Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-4670K @3.4 GHz / AMD FX-8350 @4.0 GHz
    • Memory: 16 GB RAM DDR3
    • Hard Drive: 40 GB free space
    • Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 780 / AMD Radeon™ R9 290
    • Sound: DirectX® 10

 

 

The Dying Light will release at the end of January and may be one of the most demanding games we have ever seen. The question now is how good will it look on consoles? or is the PC version of this game badly optimised?   

 

*EDIT* Techland has now released revised system requirements that are not quite as demanding or offensive to lower end PC Gamers. You can see these new requirements below:

 

Minimum:
 
  • OS: Windows® 7 64-bit / Windows® 8 64-bit / Windows® 8.1 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-2500 @3.3 GHz / AMD FX-8320 @3.5 GHz
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM DDR3
  • Hard Drive: 40 GB available space
  • Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 560 / AMD Radeon™ HD 6870 (1GB VRAM)
  • Direct X®: Version 11
  • Sound: DirectX® compatible
Recommended:
 
  • OS: Windows® 7 64-bit / Windows® 8 64-bit / Windows® 8.1 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-4670K @3.4 GHz / AMD FX-8350 @4.0 GHz
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM DDR3
  • Hard Drive: 40 GB available space

I love how console players will see this as "PC is weak"or "Lol, you should've bought a PS4!"
Us PC gamers would have no problems playing at 4K and keeping 60FPS as long as developers actually put in the time and effort to make a proper PC version. It's rather insulting, really. I'd rather there not be a PC version at all, than have a half-*ss'd, badly optimized console port.

Personally, I don't care how fun this game might be, I won't be playing it. If the developer doesn't care about the PC gaming market, then they won't be getting my money. It's as simple as that.Quote
