New Zombie Hit forces even the strongest gaming

Original text too short.

Even the first gameplay trailers have shown that the upcoming zombie hit dying light 2 graphically has a lot on the box. But those who want to turn all settings on the PC for maximum, should name a true high-end PC — because the system requirements have it.

Dying Light 2: RTX 3080 for Full HD and 60 FPS?

NEW ZOMBIE MUTATION - Dying Light New Update | Winter Event | Free DLC Weapon | 2021
Actually, Dying Light should appear at the beginning of 2020, then the shift took place on December 2021. Also, this appointment could not hold the team of developer studio Tech land and therefore announced a few months ago that one must move the release again on February 4, 2022. After all, there was as a reparation almost two weeks to see new gameplay material.

Now you have finally known the system requirements for PC players. And they have it in themselves — at least if you want to play with activated ray tracing:

Believe the recommendation of the studio, Dying Light 2 seems to bring high-end gaming PCs to high settings — and already on Full HD. Players are recommended as a minimum a GeForce RTX 2070 if you want to achieve around 30 fps in 1080p with low retracing settings. Should the frame rate double on 60 fps and the full bandwidth of ray tracing effects over the screen flicker, is even due to RTX 3080.

For relation: Due to the current hardware crisis costs the powerful NVIDIA graphics card scarce 1,500 euros. Hardware recommendations for playing in WHO or even 4K does not give up Tech land. No wonder, after all, even the RTX 3090 could encounter its limits at these resolutions when the RTX 3080 in Full HD has already reached about 60 fps on average.

If Retracing affects the graphic in Dying Light 2, the Official Trailer shows:

No ray tracing? No problem!

After all, the developers have an ace in the sleeve: Nvidia DSS. The upscaling technology is likely to worry about a significantly better performance, especially at high resolutions. However, it remains to be seen how good Tech land can implement the graphics technology. Especially with fast games DSS is happy to ensure a rather washed out picture.

If, on the other hand, if you can do without Retracing, you do not have to worry about the system requirements. According to Tech land, an i3-9100 or Ry zen 3 2300x extends along with a GTX 1050 Ti or RX 560 4 GB to get the game to low settings in Full HD with 30 fps to run. If it should be high settings and 60 fps, at least one i5-8600K or Ry zen 5 3600x and a GeForce RTX 2060 or AMD RX VEGA 56 is due. That sounds quite pleasing.

But not only PC players must make a difficult decision in the graphics settings. Console players are placed in front of a similar choice. PS5 and Xbox-Series players can choose between a quality mode with ray tracing and performance mode that arrives a frame rate of 60 fps.
