Even for a game that came out in 2016, the minimum system requirements for Dead by Daylight mean the game is playable on just about any relatively modern gaming PC. Dead by Daylight is a competitive multiplayer game, and a major concern for games like this are to make sure the game runs well on just about any machine, so they tend to be light on features that would cause a lot of unnecessary strain on the PC. Here are the minimum specifications for Dead by Daylight.

  •  Intel Core i3-4170, or AMD FX-8120
  • DX11 Compatible GeForce GTX 460 with 1GB of RAM, or AMD HD 6850 with 1GB of RAM
  • At least 8GB of RAM
  • 50GB of storage space

The minimum specs for this game are really quite low, as in no PC sold in the last ten years has had hardware less powerful than this. The highest bar to clear is the 8GB of RAM, which is an amount most modern games require. RAM is hugely important for online multiplayer games, so having plenty of it is what you want. Otherwise, you probably have a calculator that can hit the numbers these specs require.

There really is no ceiling on how far you can push a gaming PC, the only limit is your wallet. That said, there really is no reason to go overboard if you are looking for a PC that can play Dead by Daylight. As we will see, you really don't need too much to get the most out of the game. Here are the recommended specifications for Dead by Daylight.

  •  Intel Core i3-4170, or AMD FX-8300 or higher
  • DX11 Compatible GeForce 760, or AMD HD 8800 or higher with 4GB of RAM
  • 8GB of RAM
  • 50GB of storage space

As you can see, even the recommended specifications are very low by today's standards. Dead by Daylight launched in 2016, and gaming technology has come a long way in the years since. If you are looking to jump into the game and you're not sure if your PC can handle it, rest assured it almost definitely can.
