If the new driver says it's "Game Ready" for a game you want to play, then I would update to it. The game may play fine without it, but you may also run into unexplainable graphical glitches and not get optimal performance.

Or maybe it's the random photo of 4 girls in a thread about a game that isn't out yet?

So what your saying is you don't understand that there are females that also work at gaming studios? Or maybe you don't like them working there?

I fail to see how it relates at all to pre-ordering, which is a stupid practice for very real and practical reasons.

it is, until someone keeps fucking with us...
dude, look up his posts in the far cry thread... or ANY thread about new games.... its alway like "do i install the newest drivers" or "can i expect the best graphical settings" or "will i have the best looking game if i do this/ or that"-----
he is obsessed with graphics, he never contributes anything in any thread about the game itself.... i am SO sick of him...

...I don't like random photos of girls who may or may not work for a company being posted in a thread about a game that hasn't released yet.

I am pre ordering the game since I liked the first one so much.

IGN recommends not playing day one due to bugs.

"Before we dive in, it's important to note that I do not recommend jumping into Dying Light 2 on day one if your tolerance for bugs is low."

General consensus from a couple reviews:
Parkour is great. Story and characters are weak (like the first game). Overall scoring lower than Dying Light 1.

Honestly I expected worse after all the bad rumors and delays.

I wonder if that's the console version or PC version. These types of games tend be shittier on release on console.

TBH, even with the bugs shown in that video, at least it's not Cyberpunk launch level of disappointment.

It is probably very similar to the first game, which is fine for me as I loved the first.

I don't trust any of the professional reviewers at all, at best their a broken clock right twice a day, at worst their paid to obscure the faults of a title. Hell half of the time these days it doesn't even seem like their gamers, but liberal arts majors who found a job writing about games.

Yeah, I do remember the original, or even dead island not getting great reviews, but I loved them.

I can remember at the time thinking that Dead Island did somethings better, and Dying Light did others better, and the best game would actually be a amalgamation of the two.

IIRC Dead Island had the hero skills, a larger variety of elite enemies, and something else I cannot remember. Dying light had the traversal down and better basic melee combat.

The review was done on the Xbox version.

Seems decent. I bought the first game at launch and ended up bailing for years because it wasn't performing well + I couldn't get into it. I figure I'll give this one a few months so all the easy fixes and performance issues get sorted out. With some luck they might even discount it a few bucks, too. Sometime after I'm done with Elden Ring and Horizon 2.

I loved the last game just for screwing around. I really didn't even play through the story much, besides needing to do so to unlock the zones. I just enjoy running around beating the shit out of zombies, and the parkour adds entertainment value to that.

Ouch. 3090 absolutely clobbers the 2080 Ti by ~75% with ray tracing enabled, one of the biggest gaps I've ever seen between the two cards. And AMD's RT performance is nothing short of laughably bad. Somewhat surprising, considering the game has an RT mode on next gen consoles, which are both RDNA2 based. Figured it would have ran better on that architecture...

Between the mixed reviews and abysmal performance, I might just wait for a sale on this one.

Honestly I was hoping for better. This seems like more of the same as the first game.

The performance seems to be exactly where it should be given the level of detail/features of the graphics. You don't need to enable RT if you don't want to, and that will give it the performance levels one would expect.

reviews seem fairly positive...most seem to praise the parkour and graphics...performance also seems best on PC...downsides are the story, some of the character models, choice/consequence don't really add up to much...overall sounds like a good game...not as ambitious as it seemed earlier but a solid 8.0 game

Game looks incredible. Absolutely the new graphics benchmark. The raytraced sun shadows are the biggest performance killer.

Only disappointment so far is no HDR.
