Daylight is available on PC
Direct X
Daylight has the option of advanced Direct X which usually result in enhanced graphics. If your system is not good enough for these higher levels of DX the game should still run ok
Independent Game
Daylight is created by an independent developer. An indie game is created without the financial support of a game publisher. These chaps need our support! They help PC gaming become diverse and brilliant. Buy their games!
PS4 Game
Daylight is available on the Sony PS4 console
Back of the Box
Waking up in an abandoned hospital with only your cell phone for illumination, you explore the institution’s dark criminal past as you attempt to escape. In Daylight no two experiences are the same, and it is best played alone in the dark. Daylight introduces gamers to a procedurally generated world that replicates the horrifying nature of Daylight over and over again, but creates a different environment for each new game. Each time the player begins a new game, they experience a new world with new content and encounters; from the layout of the building and the things they seek to the events they encounter, it is never the same experience twice.

from the requirements shown you should be able to run it, but I wouldn't recommend it as this game is so called "next-gen" and it has the ultimate worst optimization game I've ever played. It literally killed my laptop :)

I think the ram would be a problem. And ur gpu! You will get like 15-20 fps on low settings. (Please give me a thumbs up ;) )

So I just tried this game and why is it that at the lowest possible settings (except for resolution scaling) I get no more than 30-32 FPS? Or is this one of the worst optimized games we've seen so far?

Probably because it uses unreal engine 4 and it's not well optimized yet.
