The Resolution should be native to this game. Anti-aliasing is kept TXAA to smoothen out any jagged edges. To uncap the frames, Framerates are set to Not Fixed.

I personally use ALT-TAB frequently, and if you do the same, I would suggest you put the game to fullscreen windowed to reduce CPU Load. If you have a powerful CPU, then this should be fine with Fullscreen Only.

Since this is a visually pleasing game and you would need some of that while playing, keep the shadows high. This is optional, and you can reduce this one as well. Post Processing is less significant on the GPU, so keep this high. You should be good to go with these settings.

My System Specs Used To Test

For the CPU, I used an I3 8100. I went with a GTX 750TI for the GPU aspect. That is because, as per the statistics, the majority of the players still use 1050TIs and 750s to run their games.

I used an HDD with a capacity of 1TB and an RPM of 7200. Windows 10 (64Bit) was my choice of operating system to test this game. I have a rig with 32 Gigs of RAM, so I tend to use that for most of my tests.

If I use anything else, I will mention it separately. The game was tested for 60FPS at 1080p as an entry-level benchmark.

Results and Conclusion

GPU Usage100% @1160 MHz
VRAM Usage1520 MB @2650MHz
CPU Usage32% @4080MHz
Average Framerate43-47FPS
RAM Usage~ 5300 MB

As you can see from the above results, the game ran its best at 45-47FPS at the above settings. For a card like 750TI, this is decent performance since I managed to churn out all the power from the card, which is evident from the GPU Usage of 100%.

You can expect better performance if you upgrade the card, the CPU, or both. I did not have any issues playing the game at the above performance and framerates.

If, by chance, you are running an even older system, your best bet is to dial down the shadows all the way down and play at 720p rather than 1080p.
