Outward Graphics Settings Guide
Graphics Quality: Custom
This will be custom since we will be adjusting each setting individually.
Render Scale: Max
I recommend the max settings for render scale as you get the best graphics quality as well as clear images. Lowering this results in a bad gameplay experience in my opinion.
Texture Quality: High
Texture quality is best set to high. It makes the game look really good and doesn’t cause much FPS loss as long as you have enough VRAM. if you are lagging in high or want even more FPS then you can lower the texture quality to medium. But my recommendation will be High.
Light Quality: High
The game gets very dark and good light quality is a must. Without it you will face a lot of trouble playing the game. The lowest I recommend is medium settings.
Shadow Quality: Off or Low
If you are lagging then turn this off. You will get a great FPS boost. The game will look bland though. But if you are lagging then this is the best setting to boost FPS in outward.
Terrain Quality: Medium
Medium settings are best for low end systems. High end systems can use high settings. This will make the game look good as well as help you spot items of interest in outward.
Grass Quantity: Off or Medium
For an in-game advantage, I recommend turning this off. It helps you easily spot all items in-game. The drawback being the game looks ugly. Honestly, the game will look bland and ugly but you will get very high fps plus easy spotting of objects and items in the game.
Grass Distance: Very Low or Low
By lowering the the grass distance you can spot enemies as well as hidden objects in the world of outward. Granted the game does not look as fancy as it can. But while actually playing the game this in-game advantage can truly make your day.
Water Quality: medium
Water quality is best set to medium settings. If you want an even higher FPS you can set it to low. But I prefer medium since the water looks good enough with medium settings.
Unnecessary graphics effect. You can safely turn this off for a minor FPS boost.
Aniso Filtering: On
If you have a large screen then enable this option. It will filter the jagged edges and make the game look cleaner and more polished.
Similar to above option if you have a large screen then it is a must. So only potato pc should turn this off. Rest everybody keep it on.
High end systems use medium or high settings. Low end systems should set it to low. The game looks good at medium settings but the effect is noticed more in cities.
SS Shadows: On/Off
If you kept shadows enabled then turn this on. Otherwise disable this. This makes the shadows softer and the game much better.
Soft Particles: On
Makes the game look good. Fps drop is minor. You can enable this.
Model Quality:High or Very High
High settings are best for model quality. Outward has horrible models as it is compared to games like witcher and skyrim. So I recommend High or Very High Model Quality for playing Outward.
Motion Blur: Off
Motion blur is quite intense in outward. I recommend you disable it since it will help you play the game better as well as boost FPS.
Atmosphere Fog: Off
Not required. Disable to boost FPS.
Advanced Shader: On
Enable this option. Makes the game look good. This requires some GPU resources but its definitely worth it.
