Oddly enough, the game’s file size differs drastically from platform to platform. Plus, the difference between the prev-gen and the next-gen version is huge! So, if you planning to get Dead by Daylight anytime soon, this article will help you speculate the amount of storage you would need on your device. Keep reading!
Is the game optimized enough?
Optimization plays a major part in the download size of a video game. Good optimization will ensure less bloatware and a small download size. Addressing a popular query among new DBD players, the game is fair in terms of optimization. However, this was not always the case. We have come across a lot of reports regarding FPS drops in the early years of Dead by Daylight. We still receive similar reports but the occurrence has decreased over the years – common in low and mid-end systems. According to reports, Dead by Daylight does well in Medium graphics, sporting constant FPS for the majority. However, the game does feature some very attractive visuals that look great on Ultra graphics settings.
At present, Dead by Daylight is in its best optimization state. Although may not be extremely smooth like Overwatch, DBD features satisfactory optimization. You should be able to run a constant 60 FPS on Ultra graphics with a mid-range GPU. Behavior Interactive, as mentioned before, has made it a habit to release new characters, map expansions, cosmetics, and more to keep fans happy. However, this has also caused the game’s install and storage size to climb up gradually over the years.
