A new improved version of Dying Light was released this week on Steam. The new version is called Dying Light The Following and includes a brand new Legend system, improved visuals, significant gameplay improvements and much more.

Due to the improvement of the game, some players have encountered several bugs when trying to start or play the game. The bugs that players most often complain about are Dying Light The Following Not Loading, which is by far the most common bug encountered by players. You cannot start the game because of a crash at startup; the game does not load, or it freezes.

Another common error in the game are crashes, random crashes during the game every 5 or 10 minutes and FPS, low fps or fps problems sometimes fall with 5-10 constant fps.

Updating or resetting the graphics card drivers

Update-Drivers

Updating drivers is the easiest and smartest way to avoid accidents and stuttering.

If the problem has already occurred during the installation of the game, it is possible that the drivers on your video card are too old to support the game, and we recommend that you update them. However, if you have recently updated your drivers and the game crashes, you should go back to the latest working version and wait for a new driver to come out! Make sure you follow these steps!

You must first open the Device Manager using the Windows + R key. Make sure you type “devmgmt.msc” in the text box before clicking OK to open the Device Manager. You can also search for it in the Start menu.
Locate the Display Adapter section and click on the arrow next to it to enlarge it.

Lower the settings in the game.

If your PC does not meet the recommended system requirements for Dying Light, you should use a reduced configuration profile for graphics functions, as higher settings increase your PC’s workload, which can even cause game crashes.

Restart the game with reduced settings to see if it crashes or not. If the game still crashes, try the following correction below.

Running a Clean Boot
