Dying Light’s crazy PC specs were just placeholders after all

Dying Light - 07
Not quite so RAM-hungry after all.

Yesterday’s rather mental Dying Light PC specs were, according to Techland, just place-holders for the Steam page. A new post on the community hub for the game contains some updated specs, as does the official store page.

The ‘recommended’ specs haven’t actually changed all that much, aside from ditching the 16GB RAM suggestion in favour of the more traditional 8GB of RAM. The ‘minimum’ ones aren’t hugely different either, but are now a lot more accommodating to older GPUs.

Here are the new (and probably final, this time) Dying Light specs:

Minimum requirements:
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 requirements:
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
Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 780 / AMD Radeon™ R9 290 (2GB VRAM)
Direct X: Version 11
Sound: DirectX® compatible

In addition, Techland note that “Laptop versions of graphics cards may work but are NOT officially supported. Windows-compatible keyboard, mouse, optional controller (Xbox 360 Controller for Windows recommended)”

Dying Light is out in January.
