The system requirements have been released for upcoming open-world zombie game, Dying Light. Those of you that don't have a PC from the last two-three years are probably going to want to upgrade if you want to run it.

The game is going to be releasing January 27th 2015 for PC, and the store page is now showing some rather hefty requirements for the game to run. You're probably going to need an upgrade in the CPU department if you're not running an i5-2500 or one of the FX series CPUs from AMD. The graphics requirements aren't that bad, and the HDD space is asking for 40GB to be free, yikes.

MINIMUM:

  • 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 free space
  • Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 560 / AMD Radeon™ HD 6870 (1GB VRAM)
  • DirectX®: Version 11
  • Sound: DirectX® compatible
  • Additional Notes: Laptop versions of graphics cards may work but are NOT officially supported.

RECOMMENDED

  • 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 free space
  • Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 780 / AMD Radeon™ R9 290 (2GB VRAM)
  • DirectX®: Version 11
  • Sound: DirectX® compatible
  • Additional Notes: Laptop versions of graphics cards may work but are NOT officially supported.

So how many of you here are going to have to get an upgrade to be able to run the game at all? I should be alright in the graphics department with an R9 280X, but my CPU definitely wouldn't be able to keep up.
