Picture taken through Bend Studio

With Days Gone finally arriving on PC, lots of players out there and jumping on bikes and embarking on a journey for some post-apocalyptic action. As always, PC gamers want the best graphics and frame rate possible, but some people will have to sacrifice victims depending on their build.

In this guide, we’ll cover some easy improvements and important information you’ll need to run the game on your PC. The good news is that the game supports ultrawide monitors and unlimited frame rates.

Changes to be made if your frame rates are low

Now, the type of frames per second that people receive will largely depend on their settings, so check your own specifications against the minimum and recommended specifications below. Truth be told, the Days Gone port is great, and we can’t imagine too many people trying to get decent frame rates.

This game contains a list of graphics profiles that you can try, so choose the one that suits the system you are playing in, from the lowest to the very high, and then fine-tune.

  • Chromatic aberration and motion blur can be turned off. (This pretty much applies to all games at all)
  • To greatly increase performance, you can reduce the drawing distance of sheets
  • Clouds and fog can be easily reduced
  • If you are still not happy with the framerates, then Shadows are another area that will start to improve quality.
  • Ideally, changes in texture quality come last because they are the most effective screen element in the game.
