Dying Light 2 is set to release on Feb. 4. If you’re looking to pre-order the game on PC and claim the exclusive Reload Pack, you should check whether your PC can handle the game’s graphics.

Making sure that your PC can run a game before purchasing it can save you from going through a refund process. While some players will want to have the best possible experience when it comes to overall visual quality, others can be just fine by running the game smoothly.

A system that satisfies Dying Light 2’s minimum system requirements will be enough to run the game at smooth frame rates with lower settings. Players looking to crank up the video settings, however, will need to have a PC that checks all the boxes on Dying Light 2’s recommended requirements.
