Life is strange 2 Graphics settings
Screen Resolution: Max
Higher Resolution means cleaner textures and graphics. It can also help reduce eye strain and reduce blurry textures.
The minimum resolution I personally recommend is 1920*1080 for all gamers.
Display Mode: Fullscreen
Fullscreen gives an immersive gameplay experience while playing life is strange 2. Windows gives high process priority to apps in fullscreen mode thus you will get a good gameplay experience.
Max Framerate: Unlimited or same as monitor refresh rate
This setting should be the same as your monitor refresh rate minimum. higher FPS is always better but the bare minimum is the same as your refresh rate.
Graphics Quality: Custom
Since we will setting each setting manually this option will change to custom.
Vertical Synchronization: No
Vsync should always be off for games with high graphics. Vsync adds input lag which can hamper your gameplay. If you have 6GB Vram or higher then you can enable vsync.
Anti Aliasing: Low
If you have a large screen then go with medium antialiasing settings. If you have an average screen with 1080p resolution then low is enough for low-end systems. High-end systems can opt for Medium settings
View Distance: Medium
I recommend medium settings since the game will be easier to play. If you have a large screen then select high settings. You will be able to spot distant objects more clearly helping you during your gameplay and quests.
Post process Quality: Medium
Post-processing helps render textures faster at the cost of VRAM. If you have 6GB or more VRAM go with high settings. Otherwise, go with medium settings
Effects Quality: Medium
Effects quality can be low or medium. I prefer medium since the gameplay experience is better. If you want more FPS then go with low.
Texture Quality: High
Keep it at high if possible. The minimum I would recommend is medium settings. If you really want to enjoy this game then texture quality should be high.
Shadow Quality: Low
Make sure the shadow is set to low. Shadows are the second option that takes a lot of GPU and CPU Resources. The first being texture quality which is much more important for better gameplay.
3D Render Quality: 80-100% Depending on screen size
For large and ultrawide screen use 100% quality settings. I personally recommend 100% for all players.
But if your GPU is old then you might want to set it to 80-90 depending on the performance. It lowers graphics quality but can help improve FPS quite a lot.
That’s all gamers. These were the best graphics settings for Life is Strange 2. I recommend reading the optimizing windows for gaming guide. It can drastically help improve gaming performance.
Happy Gaming. See you in-game
