Video[edit]

These are the settings that will affect graphic fidelity and how well the game runs on your computer, each setting will be explain and the impact on performance will be measured.

Video Quality[edit]

This will change the preset of video quality settings, setting this to Low, Med, High, or Epic will set all of Advanced Video Settings to the one chosen. Changing any of the advance settings to something outside the presets will put Video Quality as "Custom".

Fullscreen Mode[edit]

This will determine the way the game fits in your monitor or display area, there are 3 options, Fullscreen, Windowed Fullscreen, and Windowed, they all serve different functions.

  • Fullscreen will lock the game to the max size in your display area but you will be able to choose the resolution after, any resolution outside the native resolution of the display will visually warp and stretch the game.
  • Windowed Fullscreen will match your monitors resolution and size, in future update it should also allow your mouse to freely move between the game and other programs without alt-tabbing.
  • Windowed allows the game to be moved freely and have any resolution within the given presets. Note: Having a larger resolution than your monitor with windowed mode might result in not being able to move the window.

Resolution[edit]

With Windowed or Fullscreen mode chosen you can change the resolution of the game, when using fullscreen changing the resolution to something not native to the monitor will stretch the image.

Resolution Quality[edit]

Using the slider will change the quality rendered on your computer, theoretically if you have a 4K monitor, setting resolution quality to 50 will render the game in 1080p effectively. 100 is the default and setting it any lower will drop the quality of the game significantly but will in return improve FPS drastically.

Max FPS[edit]

This option lets you limit the amount of FPS(Frames per Second) the game renders, with the preset options of 30, 60, 90, 120, 144, and Unlimited. Dragging the slider all the way to the left past the 30 FPS option will put it to Unlimited which will render as many frames per second as possible using the allocated GPU resources.

FOV[edit]

This will change the amount you can see in the game and higher FOV will effectively zoom you out from the players perspective.

  • Minimum 80 left side of slider.
  • Maximum 110 right side of slider.

Gamma[edit]

This slider ranges from 1 - 3 and will change the overall brightness of the game without washing out the colours, Gamma and Brightness are interchangeable in most applications that change these settings.

VSYNC[edit]

VSync aims to limit the amount of screen tearing you see while playing the game, for a full description on how this works visit this website.

Show FPS[edit]

This will simply enable and show an FPS counter at the top left of your HUD ingame at all times. Accuracy is on par with external FPS counters such as MSI Afterburner.

Enable Motion Blur[edit]

Motion Blur enabled will smooth out any change in where you are looking by adding directional blur, this can be used to lessen choppiness at low framerate. Motion Blur is often known to the gaming community as a disadvantage for competitive gameplay because you lose information by blurring motion. Modern-day use of this setting is meant as an Accessibility feature to help some users who feel motion sickness without the setting enabled. There is also a very slight advantage to video encoding with motion blur enabled.

Image Sharpening[edit]

As of Release 16 there is no perceivable or performance difference between Image Sharpening enabled and disabled.

Visual Effects Quality[edit]

Visual Effects put on High or Epic will add water reflections, and other details and elements in the background like the skybox.

Foliage Quality[edit]

This will dictate the amount and quality of grass, bushes, plants, and other flora in the world. Low settings will turn almost all Foliage off.

Colorblind Settings[edit]

Select Deuteranomaly, Protanomaly, or Tritanope and use the slider called "Severity" to change the overall intensity of the colorblind deficiency correction filter.
