What Gaming PC Do We Recommend To Play Days Gone?

Getting Days Gone running on the lower settings at 1080p will require one of our $600 self-builds or something of a similar power. If you fancy turning things up to the max though then a $1,500 build or higher is what you should aim to get.

If you really aren’t interested in building your own computer and you’d rather go with a pre-built option, one of our under $800 PCs should be able to run the game on low settings at 1080p resolution for decent FPS. For the higher resolutions and graphical presets however, you will have to buy a PC like one of our $1,500 pre-builds or higher in order to get respectable FPS performance.

He regrets nothing. First getting into PC gaming through exposure to Drug Lord 2.0 and then the original Half Life, he has been a fiend ever since.
