There are a bunch of options when it comes to the graphics settings. From display, UI, and graphics in general; we will talk about them all and show you the optimal settings. Please note that these settings are for mid-tier graphics cards. If you have a high-end system, you’ll want to put everything on high/ultra to get the most out of the game.

Usually, this feature increases your performance and provides you with a smooth gameplay experience. Unfortunately, there are some graphics cards that are not working properly with this and instead of improving performance; they are making it worse.
