Life is Strange Graphics settings

Detail Mode: Custom

Since we will be using custom settings for each option this option will automatically be changed to custom.

Screen Resolution: Max

Higher Resolution means cleaner textures and graphics which can help reduce eye strain. You should avoid playing with low resolution as much as possible.

The minimum resolution I personally recommend is 1920*1080 for all gamers.

Display Mode: Fullscreen

Fullscreen gives an immersive gameplay experience while playing life is strange. Windows gives high process priority to apps in fullscreen mode.

Vertical Synchronization: No

Vsync should always be off for games with high graphics. Vsync adds input lag which can hamper your gameplay. I recommend you to disable vsync in all games.

Anti Aliasing MSAA: 2x MSAA

If you have a large screen then go with 4x MSAA. If you have an average screen with 1080p resolution then 2xMSAA is the best setting for you. It can help clear up the blurry textures.

Anti Aliasing FXAA: Low

Similar to previous setting if you have a large screen display then choose Medium settings. Otherwise Low settings for everyone else.

Level Of Detail: High

Level of Detail does require a lot of GPU and CPU power. But makes the game look really good. I recommend high or medium settings since the gameplay experience will be much better. If you are running a very old system then keep the settings at low.

Texture Quality: High

Keep it at high if possible. The minimum I would recommend is medium settings. If you really want to enjoy this game then texture quality should be high.

Effects Quality: Medium

Effects quality can be low or medium. I prefer medium since the gameplay experience is better. If you want more FPS then go with low.

Shadow Quality: Low

Make sure the shadow is set to low. Shadows are the second option that takes a lot of GPU and CPU Resources. The first being texture quality which is much more important for better gameplay.

That’s all gamers. These were the best graphics settings for the Life is strange. I recommend reading the optimizing windows for gaming guide. It can drastically help improve gaming performance.

Happy Gaming. See you in-game
