Ya this was a little obvious. Just look at the file names. Xp would not be able to take advantage of Dx11 anyways.

There IS actually a way to get DX10 and DX11 running under XP. It's called using the "reference" driver that comes with the SDK. It'll work and give you full support for everything DX11 does....at about 2FPS on a 16-core machine.

Doesn't Windows 7 already have DirectX 11? If you open the start menu and type DXDIAG and hit enter. You'll see in the window that pops up, that your running DirectX 11.

I don't think Days Gone divided fans. For the most part, gamers loved it. It was the reviewers who were divided. Self-loathing racist pieces of shit that took exception to the main character being white. This was a fantastic game, one of the best open-world games I ever played, and I've played them all.
