Dying Light 2 Game Details

Release Date : TBC 2021 (PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X & S, Microsoft Windows)
System Requirements : Medium-High
Genre : Survival Action
Developer : Techland
Publisher : Techland

Following on from the previous game Dying Light, Dying Light 2 is another open-world survival horror game that promises plenty of action. 

As one of the most anticipated games of 2019, we can’t wait to see whether the gameplay lives up to its reputation and the released trailers. 

Techland, the company responsible for the game, has come up with a new “C-Engine” which is designed to run open-world action-adventure and action RPG games like this. 

The story is set in the last great human settlement in an infected world – 15 years after humanity first encountered the virus. Resources and power are scarce and civilization has all but been eroded. 

You play as Aiden Caldwell, a survivor infected by the virus. You will use your combat skills, agility and experience to become a powerful ally in the quest for your city’s survival.  

Battle through tough decisions, necessary sacrifices, and the responsibility of a society’s survival weighing on your shoulders. You can move from humble beginnings to being in a position of great power and influence. 

You can play the entire game campaign in up to a four-player co-op. You’ll be able to host your own games or join other players in theirs. See how each other players’ choices differ from your own and shape the world around them

What Gaming PC Do We Recommend To Play Dying Light 2?

If you’re in need of a new machine to play Dying Light 2 on but don’t fancy putting together your own rig from scratch, a prebuild under $800 will see you right for the lower settings at 1080p resolution. If you want to crank up the graphics though a $1,500 prebuild is what you will want, and a $2,000 prebuild will be required for 1440p resolutions or above on the higher presets.

If you don’t mind putting together your own machine, then, for the lower settings on 1080p, we’d recommend something like our $600 self-build or of similar power to get decent FPS. For the higher graphical presets, a $1,500 build is what you’ll want to achieve competitive FPS or possibly as high as our $2,000 build for those higher resolutions.
