Looking for the Best Graphics Settings for Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut on PC? Well, you have come to the right place as we discuss the best settings for the game that will help you get smooth performance and decent enough visuals for a better overall experience.

The Best Ghost Of Tsushima Director’s Cut Overall Graphics Settings for both Performance and Visuals:

The wait was long and finally, it is here. After 4 years PC players finally get the taste of one of the best action-adventure samurai games ever made. Ghost of Tsushima was a PlayStation masterpiece and now that it is out on PC, we could probably expect even better 4K visuals from the game.

That is, however, for people who own absolute monster PCs. What about the average gamers? Here is a Graphics Settings guide that would not only help you get a great frame rate but also help retain the visual depth of the game.

Use These Display Settings:

  • Window Mode: Fullscreen
  • Display Resolution: Native (Always use native or default monitor resolution for maximum performance)

  • Aspect Ratio: Auto
  • Upscale Method: AMD FSR 3.0 (AMD FSR 3.0 gives you better frames and you also get frame generation with it. So I would recommend using AMD FSR 3.0 over Nvidia DLSS)
  • Upscale Quality: Quality/ Balanced (Upscaling normally upscale a lower resolution to the resolution you have set for the game. As a result, you get better performance with an almost similar visual. Quality gives you the sharpest image. I would recommend Quality but if you want more frames then go for Balanced or Performance.)
  • NVIDIA Reflex Low Latency: Off (You won’t need this. So turn it off for extra performance)
  • Frame Generation: AMD FSR 3 Frame Generation (Use this for more performance)
  • Dynamic Resolution Scaling: Off
  • V-Sync: Off

Use These Graphics Settings: 

  • Texture Quality: Medium/ High ( Effects performance only when there is not enough VRAM. 6 GB and above use High while if you have lower than that use Medium or Low.) 
  • Texture Filtering: 8x / 16x Anisotropic
  • Shadow Quality: Medium/ Low ( Has a tremendous effect on performance. The lower the better)

  • Level of Detail: High
  • Terrain Detail: Medium
  • Volumetric Fog: Medium (Has a high impact on performance.)
  • Depth of Field: Very High (Personal Preference. No effect on performance)
  • Screen Space Reflections: Low (Has a medium impact on performance.)
  • Screen Space Shadows: Low (Has a medium impact on performance.)
  • Ambient Occlusion: HBAO+
  • Bloom: Off (Personal Preference)
  • Vignette: Off (Personal Preference)
  • Water Caustics: On (Personal Preference)
  • Field of View: 6 (The higher you go, the lesser the performance. Leave it at 0 if you want the default view)
  • Motion Blur Strength: 0 (Personal Preference)

I would recommend tweaking the settings according to what makes you more comfortable. For best performance, it is obvious that you need to put everything on Low. However, we are helping you get that sweet spot where you have a little of both performance and visuals.

There you go, that is all for the best graphics settings for the Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut.
