1) Best Graphics Settings to Boost FPS in New World

The most important factor impacting the FPS in New World Game is none other than graphics Settings. The right graphics settings can make or break your Game. So to help out my fellow new world denizens here are the best settings for the new world:

New World best Graphics settings for max FPS
New World best Graphics settings for max FPS

Window Mode: Fullscreen

The game must be played in fullscreen for the best FPS. You can also run this game as admin if you want it to have higher access and priority while running the game. Game lags if you alt+tab a lot so avoid it as much as possible. Also, an immersive game like the new world just should be played in Fullscreen mode.

Resolution: Same as your Monitor Resolution

Keep the game resolution in new world the same as your monitor resolution. Lowering it will make the game blurry especially on large screens. Only potato pc players should lower the resolution. Everybody else, keep it at max.

Brightness: Default

Does not impact FPS. Choose as per your requirements

Contrast: Default

Does not impact FPS. Choose as per your requirements

Field of View: Low for High FPS

Lower FOV gives higher FPS but your FOV will be smaller. Higher FOV will show increase your viewing area but lower FPS slightly. I recommend 50 but you can lower it to the lowest setting on potato pcs and laptops.

FOV is a personal choice but don’t go for max FOV since it can cause lag in some systems.

Video Quality: Custom

This setting will be custom since we will be setting each one of those manually. If you have a potato pc and you are lazy then set this setting to low and skip to part 2 of the guide.

Effect Details: Low Or Medium

Effect details make the game look really good but lower the FPS significantly. Depending on how good your GPU is select. Low or Medium settings are the best for playing the new world game.

Lighting Details: Low or Medium

Similar to effect details lighting details impact various lighting effects in-game. Keep the setting at low or medium for the best FPS.

Object Details: Medium

Keep object details at medium since it will be easier for you to spot objects of interest in-game. I recommend medium settings for all players except those having a potato pc.

Post Processing: Medium or High

Keep this setting at Medium or High. Helps render the game world properly. If you have 4GB or Higher GPU VRAM then go for Medium or High settings for post-processing in the new world.

Shadow Details: Low

This setting has the highest FPS impact. Keep it at the lowest for the best FPS Boost in the Game. Shadows are the real culprits in lag issues in the new world.

Terrain Details: Low

Keep the terrain details low so that you can spot items easily. You can spot items easier since other unnecessary game items are not rendered unless you are close.

If you have a good GPU and want a good graphics experience then set it to medium.

Texture Details: Medium or High

Texture details are the most important settings that decide how good the game will look. I recommend medium settings for most systems. If you have a good GPU from RTX or Navi series then go for high settings.

You will truly enjoy the gaming experience.

Water Details: Low

Water details are one of the most unnecessary settings in the game. Set it at low for the max FPS in-game.

Show FPS: On While testing Settings. Then You can Turn Off

Enable this setting to test the fps in-game. You need at least 60 fps to play with zero lag on most systems. Since it’s an MMO even 30 is fine for PvE. But for PVP I recommend a 60 FPS minimum.

Once you have tested the FPS and the game is running properly disable the show-off option.

V-sync: Off

Causes input lag and stuttering. Disable this option for all systems. The online game should not have Vsync especially for PvP

Max FPS: Uncapped or 60 FPS (30 fps for potato PC and low-end laptops)

For High-End Gaming PC keep it uncapped. For Laptops keep it at 60 Fps to avoid heating issues.

Potato pc users 30 FPS is the only option for you.

That’s all folks. These were the best graphics settings to get max fps in the new world. You will definitely get a 30-50% FPS boost with the above settings.

Now let’s go on to the next guide where I will explain the PC settings to boost fps in a new world game.

Nvidia and AMD Graphics Settings for New World:

DO NOT CHANGE these settings as of now. The game has issues with drivers since it is in beta. When I tried testing the settings the game crashed and sometimes I wasn’t even able to log in to the game since it kept crashing.

When the game is released and the settings are stable for all systems I will add them to this guide. You are free to test the settings but as far as I have seen the game crashes on RTX and NAVI graphics cards from my testing results. It May or may not work for you. If you want to test feel free. Do let me know your results. Make sure to take backups just in case.

Disclaimer: Server Location determines the ping for the game. If there is no server near you then you will get higher pings and lag/ Stuttering. Currently, the servers and limited, and honestly they are quite buggy. I guess amazon underestimated how popular the game would be. If you are very far from the servers or if the servers are facing issues then you will get lag and stuttering in-game. That cannot be fixed from our end and instead is completely on the dev and server-side. Hopefully, they will add more servers, especially in Asia.
