New World Settings

Open the game and click settings at the top right to open New World Settings.

These settings will make your game look bad, however you will get more FPS and will be able to see things more clear. If you wish to make your game not look so bad, I recommend putting some settings on medium/high instead.

I have highlighted the settings that are more significant than others, and you may pick and choose what you want to sacrifice for more FPS.


  • Bandwidth Mode: High (Recommended high if you have fast internet, otherwise, put medium/low).
  • Enable Analytics Reporting: Off


  • Window Mode: Fullscreen
  • Resolution: Native resolution (Your monitor’s resolution. Choose a lower value for more FPS but your game will look blurry).
  • Field of View (Vertical): 50 (More FOV, less FPS however a lot of players are unable to play with low FOV).
  • Video Quality: Custom
  • Effects details: Low
  • Lightning details: Medium
  • Object details: Low

I love games and I live games. Video games are my passion, my hobby and my job. My experience with games started back in 1994 with the Metal Mutant game on ZX Spectrum computer. And since then, I’ve been playing on anything from consoles, to mobile devices. My first official job in the game industry started back in 2005, and I'm still doing what I love to do.


  1. Thanks for the guide. This is a strange one – but I recommend adding a note to uninstall Citrix. For some reason recently having Citrix Workspace installed is maxing my frames at 10fps. Uninstalling it then restarting brings them back up to normal/expected levels.
