Techland's new game won't ask too much of your PC to play it.

Some PC specs were posted onto Steam the other day for Techland's zombie survivial game Dying Light, and they were pretty worrying to say the least. However, the actual specs have now been posted, which are a much more realistic request to the game's eventual players.

GameSpot captured the below screenshot of the initial requirements when they were on the game's Steam page before the update:

OK, now that you've looked at those nightmare-inducing requirements, check out the updated ones below. They'll calm you down, we imagine.

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
