God Of War: Best Graphics Settings Guide
After ensuring that you have the PC requirements down, move on to setting up your game with these settings. However, a few things to note before you launch the game:

|Render Resolution||Your resolution (ideally 1920 x 1080)|
|FPS Limit||Dependent on your refresh rate|
|DLSS||On (Only in RTX card)|
|Fidelity FX Super Resolution||Off|
After setting up your graphic settings, make sure your card is able to emulate these graphics, and make note of how to revert the changes in case anything goes wrong.
Here are all the best graphics settings:
|Preset||Custom (It automatically adjusts on Original)|
|Shadows||Low – Medium|
|Atmospherics||Medium – High|
|Ambient Occulsion||Medium – High|
What do These Settings Mean?
In case you are not aware what some of these settings do, worry not because we will explain them in-depth:
