• If the framerate of your game seems to be low, try lowering some of the video settings to solve the issue. Make sure you have closed all unnecessary programs running in the background before launching the game. Also, make sure you have the latest video/audio/motherboard drivers installed on your computer.

  • Try lowering the view distance option in the game

  • Try turning off the  "Nvidia Depth of Field" option in the game's menu

  • If you have a piece of software for managing drivers on your laptop or a program for VPN services, disable it, please. Some types of software and processes on computers are known to be conflicting with games and Steam. Visit Steam's FAQ on interfering programs, please. As suggested by Valve, "even if you do not find any programs that might be causing an issue, please verify your game files and try running the game again". 

You may also be running a computer with two video cards. Make sure the game is using your dedicated graphics card instead of the integrated one, please. 

  • For Nvidia card users - in Nvidia Control Panel, go to "Manage 3D settings", then "Global Settings", then under "Preferred graphics processor" select "High-performance NVIDIA processor".
  • Alternatively, right-click DyingLightGame.exe, go to "Run with graphics processor" and then choose "High-performance NVIDIA processor".


In addition, update your Intel Graphics driver and your Nvidia/AMD driver, please. A lot of computer manufacturers provide outdated drivers at their webpages.

Finally, make sure your dedicated video card and the CPU meet the Official PC system requirements for Dying Light.

If everything fails, send us your DxDiag.txt and Crash Log files generated on your computer and we will do our best to investigate the matter further.
