Techland has shared the official ray-tracing requirements for its upcoming apocalyptic zombie sequel, Dying Light 2: Stay Human, and they are pretty surprising in a not-so-good way.

According to a systems requirements table published on Steam, Dying Light fans who want to enjoy the sequel with ray tracing effects enabled should shoot for a GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card or better, but even with NVIDIA’s semi-flagship, players can only hope to hit 60 FPS under the “High RT” quality preset if they run the game at 1080p or lower resolutions. Dying Light 2 seems oddly demanding with ray tracing off, too, as Techland recommends an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 or AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 just to run the game at 1080p/60 FPS in the High setting.

A description for Dying Light 2:

Over twenty years ago in Harran, we fought the virus—and lost. Now, we’re losing again. The City, one of the last large human settlements, is torn by conflict. Civilization has fallen back into the Dark Ages. And yet, we still have hope.

You are a wanderer with the power to change the fate of The City. But your exceptional abilities come at a price. Haunted by memories you cannot decipher, you set out to learn the truth… and find yourself in a combat zone. Hone your skills, as to defeat your enemies and make allies, you’ll need both fists and wits. Unravel the dark secrets behind the wielders of power, choose sides and decide your destiny. But wherever your actions take you, there’s one thing you can never forget—stay human.

Dying Light 2 is scheduled for release on February 4, 2022. Perhaps the game will be better optimized in the months ahead before its debut on PC (via Steam and the Epic Games Store) and consoles.
