Elden Ring Vs Dying Light 2: Which is Better?

Elden Ring Vs Dying Light 2: Which is Better?

Determining if a game is better than another is a very hard thing to do. There are a bunch of games that have Overwhelmingly Positive reviews, but there are still people who don’t enjoy them. This article will not be specific on which game is better, but we will go over a bunch of questions that people have about each game.

Overall, you can’t say if one game is better. You might enjoy Elden Ring and hate Dying Light 2. You might enjoy Dying Light 2 and hate Elden Ring. You might even enjoy both. It is entirely up to your opinion, but we will go over what each game offers you.


We have compiled a bunch of questions that most gamers will be asking about each game, and we will go over how each of the two games does it and if it is good or not. We won’t say which game is better, so we will let you determine that question yourself.

Which game holds your hand more?

Dying Light 2 holds your hand a lot more than Elden Ring does. It has a full Journal with main and side quests for you. There are also a lot of cutscenes, with your choices being important throughout the game. In Elden Ring, the only thing that changes with choices is by the end of the game, trying not to get into spoilers.

Elden Ring throws you into a world and lets you figure out what is happening. We understand that some people enjoy both sides of the spectrum, so if you only like 1 of these games, that is fine. Some people don’t like the difficulty that Elden Ring brings.

Which game has better graphics?

This is a hard question to answer because both games look amazing. Dying Light 2 has RTX and a massive world that looks amazing, and Elden Ring has soo many Set Pieces that it looks incredible. Some might argue that Elden Ring doesn’t have good graphics, but we guarantee those people probably only stayed in the first area.

Dying Light 2 takes the cake regarding textures and reflections, but Elden Ring has better Set Pieces. There isn’t a game with better graphics because both games have stunning worlds. It is entirely up to you to determine which game looks better.

Which game has the bigger world?

Elden Ring has the biggest world between the two games. Dying Light’s world is big, but it is not much different in all areas. Even when you get to the second area, the world is a bit bigger but not as big as Elden Ring’s world. When you explore Elden Ring, every area looks different, and there are many areas to explore.


If you are getting a game for the size, then Elden Ring is a must-have, especially with all the content within the world. Elden Ring is a breath of fresh air regarding content if you are used to mediocre open worlds. Dying Light 2’s world is big but not as good as Elden Ring’s beautiful world.

Which game is better optimized?

This is another hard question to answer. They are both not super optimized, at least on PC. You will have difficulty running bot games if you have older hardware, but it is not terrible. If you have newer hardware, you will have a great time running these games. Dying Light 2 has DLSS, so if you have an RTX card, you can use it.

Elden RIng has none of that, but the game is locked at 60 FPS for a smooth experience. All of the FromSoft games are locked at 60 FPS, but that is to bring the community together. If you play the game on the keyboard and mouse, though, it will be a struggle, so good luck if you do. Dying Light 2 can be played on both pretty comfortably.

Which game has the better story and side quests?

When it comes to the story, many people say that Dying Light 2 has the better story. Yes, Elden RIng has a lot of lore, but if we are talking about the pure story in the game, Dying Light 2 beats Elden Ring. Elden Ring takes the cake with the side quests, though. There are soo many side quests in the game that it can sometimes be confusing.


You don’t get a Journal, so you must keep the locations in your head, or you will forget about them. However, this is not a bad thing because it doesn’t hold your hand in any way, as we said before. The side quests in Elden Ring have been handcrafted, and they don’t feel like they were thrown in. Dying Light 2 side quests suck.

They are there to fill time and weren’t thought through much. There are a few good ones, but for the most part, they are all pretty bad. The main story makes up for it, though. If you want good side quests, then go to Elden Ring. If you want a good story, then go to Dying Light 2.
