Get ready to get looping as Arkane's brand new time-hopping Action-Immersive Sim game is finally here. We've had a good look at the game over the past year or so, with multiple gameplay and story trailers to wet our appetites. But how does the game actually look? And what kind of graphics settings are available inDeathloop?

Arkane's games have always had a good degree of adjustability in terms of graphics settings available, and with the jump into next-gen hardware is there anything we can expect differently? And how much are we able to customize the graphics settings to get the right balance of performance and visual quality? We take a look at all the PC graphics settings available in Deathloop.

So let's get started and jump right into the Deathloop PC graphics settings...

  • Screen Resolution
  • Display Mode
  • Monitor
  • Gamma
  • Brightness
  • Field of View
  • Nvidia Reflex
  • Low Latency


  • V-Sync
  • Upscaling
  • AMD FSR Mode
  • Adaptive Resolution

Deathloop graphics settings


  • Presets
  • Texture Details
  • Model Details
  • Shadow Details
  • Water Details
  • Terrain Details
  • Decal Details


  • Ambient Occlusion
  • Sun Shadows
  • Post-Process Anti-Aliasing
  • TXAA Sharpness
  • Sharpness Post Process
  • Camera Motion Blur
  • Bloom


  • Depth of Field
  • Lens Flare
  • Light Shafts


And that's all the graphics settings available in Deathloop! There's quite a lot of options to tinker with that will help us get the right balance of fps performance and visual quality at least. But are there any notable settings that stand out? Quite a few actually, here's what we reckon are some of the most notable options in Deathloop...

First of all, the most obvious two are ray tracing and AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR). The former allows for ray traced sun shadows and Ambient Occlusion, and the latter will help to squeeze some extra frames out of your performance. Both are likely to be used in conjunction with the other, but are by no means tied to each other. FSR also has several sub-settings to mess around with.

Next is your typical FPS limiter, which ranges from 30fps to 120fps. There's no unlimited option unfortunately, but the game is pretty demanding even on high-end hardware so you'll unlikely to exceed that limit at Max settings. Additionally, there are options for Low Latency and Nvidia's Reflex support, for reduced input lag but can also reduce performance slightly.

Finally, there isn't really a whole let else to mention other than the standard quality settings. There are a number of graphics presets though ranging from Very Low, Low, Medium, High, Very High, and Ultra. For those who aren't fans of Temporal Anti-Aliasing (TAA), you can remove it but there's also an option to add sharpness after the initial blurriness of TAA.

But apart from that there's not much else to mention when it comes to the Deathloop PC graphics settings. There's already a wealth of options to choose from and customize to our liking, which should definitely help with striking the right balance between performance and graphical quality.

Feel like this game has got a new trailer every month for the past 2 years...

Nice, "cacao quality" - the game makes you a nice lil' mug to sip on while you play (how nice the mug - depends on the quality you pick) 😂

Do you notice high vram usage on this game? i really regret buying this gpu, it seems to be severely vram limited on this game, i get stuttering even at 1440p ffs.

I haven't bought the game yet... £50 - no thanks! It's a Bethesda game, it'll be £15-20 within a year 😂

That being said, have you tried investigating where the stutter is coming from? Are you really running out of VRAM? Could it be a CPU issue?
