Dying Light 2 is one of the first big launches this year, the game finally made its way to PCs after so many delays. Players have been reporting multiple issues already, but these things are not new, all AAA titles have problems on launch days. We are sure this will be fixed soon.
High graphics settings on the game Dying Light 2 can cause significant problems for players who have low-end PCs. The basic rule of thumb whenever you have FPS troubles is toning down these settings. To do this, go to game video settings, and change them accordingly.
In this article, we will cover the best settings for Dying Light 2 PCs running on low-end hardware.
These settings have been tested on the following PCs
- i5 8500 with GTX 1060 @1080p
- i3 10300 with RTX 2060 @1080p
- i3 8300 with GTX 1660 @1080p
- i7 8700 with GTX 1650 @1080p
- AMD Ryzen 5600x with RTX 3070 @2k
Dying Light 2: Best Settings for Low-end PCs
|Resolution||Switch According to your preference. Lower the better.|
|V-Sync||Off (Unless you have screen tearing issues)|
|Upscaler Mode||FSR, Balanced (Switch to Quality if required)|
|Film Grain Mode||Off (Also makes the game blurry if turned on)|
|Game Screen Size||100|
|Field of View||0|
|Aspect Ratio||Default monitor settings|
|Refresh Rate||Choose your monitor’s refresh rate here|
The upscaler setting is a thing of its own, this setting is really useful for low-end computers, what it does is, render the game in a lower resolution before upscaling it to save resources.
|Motion Blur Quality||None|
|Contact Shadow Quality||Low|
|Ambient Occlusion Quality||Medium or Low|
|Global Illumination Quality||Low|
While these settings will help you a little in improving your gaming experience, you may still face issues in areas that are flooded with NPCs or zombies. You may want to fiddle with some of the settings we have mentioned above to find out what’s best for your computer.
The game is a masterpiece and probably is designed for future hardware because even an RTX 3090 struggles with Ray tracing maxed out. Even when you have DLSS set to performance on 4k, the card still struggles. The game also uses Denuvo.
Last but not the least, make sure to update your graphic card drivers, Nvidia and AMD, both have pushed game-specific driver updates already.
