Techland Is Working On A Performance Patch For Dying Light, Recommends Using View Distance At 50%

Techland announced today that it is currently working on a performance patch for the PC version of Dying Light. As the team specifically said, it is working ‘hard to make sure a patch fixing framerate issues on affected software/hardware setups.’

In the meantime, Techland suggested PC gamers to set their View Distance at 50% (which is said to be its default High settings) in order to avoid any performance issues caused by it.

“In the meantime, there is a possible fix to the problem for at least some of you, see below:

Please make sure the the VIEW DISTANCE slider in MAIN MENU>OPTIONS>VIDEO is set to EXACTLY HALF.

The half-point value is the default for HIGH QUALITY settings, anything above has little impact on visual quality while being extremely taxing for even top-notch hardware.”

There is still no ETA for this performance patch, but we’ll make sure to keep you posted!
