Each setting category will relate to a specific facet of your game.

  • Performance - This section relates to the overall Graphical Intensity of the game. The settings you choose in this section will impact the overall processing needs of the game.
  • Display - This section relates to the overall visuals of the game, such as resolution or gamma. This section has overlapping settings with Performance settings, due to the effect visual intensity has on game performance.
  • Audio - This section allows you to control the volume of in game sounds, or to completely turn off certain voices and effects.
  • General - This section has multiple types of settings, from name visibility to client language.

If you are uncomfortable with, or overwhelmed by, the variety of settings you can change, there are several useful presets you can apply to your game. There are two versions of each preset, one for normal gameplay and the other for siege. These presets are geared towards specific PC capabilities, indicated by their names: Low, Med(Medium), High and Highest. By comparing your computer stats against the Recommended and Minimum requirements for the game, you can pick the preset best suited for your PC.


If you are more comfortable tweaking your settings to get the perfect fit, you can save them to the Custom Slots 1 and 2. You can then easily swap between the two, no matter the situation.

Once you find the configuration of settings that works best for you, you can save it to your settings archive. This will upload everything from your hotkeys, to your UI layout, as well as all of your game settings. You can download this save at any time, even on a different PC. This upload is not impacted by clearing your cache.
