Evil Dead Best Graphics Settings to fix FPS drops and Stuttering

Evil Dead graphics settings – This time, the new Evil Dead game is completely online, and even if you choose to play the single-player mode, you will need an internet connection for that. Looking at the response of people on Reddit, I would say the game is doing well. The only problem is that the PC version of Evil Dead The Game is filled with issues at the moment. We already faced a game-breaking issue with the game, and we addressed them here.

Now let us talk about how the game runs on the PC. I have devoted a couple of early hours to the game and I didn’t find much of a performance issue to be very honest. Yes, there are certain issues with the players not being able to change the resolution, but we fixed that problem as well here. But not everyone is trying to play this game on a high-end rig, and it looks like some players are still experiencing some performance-related issues in Evil Dead the Game.

According to the latest Steam Hardware Survey, it shows that most gamers are still gaming on low to medium graphics cards like the GTX 1050Ti, GTX 1650, GTX 1060, etc. Because of the GPU price inflation in recent years due to mining activity, gamers are either not getting their hands on GPUs due to a lack of stock in the market, or the price is so inflated that an average gamer can’t get their hands on a newer generation Graphics card. So this is why I decided to make the best Graphics Settings to fix stuttering and the major performance issues catered towards gamers with low-medium end gaming rigs.

This guide will show you the best graphics settings for Evil Dead the Game, for low-medium end gaming PCs. You will have a smoother experience in-game, and it might also help you eliminate various performance issues like FPS drops and Stuttering,

Evil Dead Graphics Settings

Here are the recommended Graphics Settings that you can try to eliminate performance issues and fix stuttering.

  • Display Mode – Fullscreen (you lose out a lot of performance if you play in a windowed or a borderless windowed mode)
  • Resolution Scale – High (lowering the scale further brings in blurriness to the image)
  • View Distance – Medium (Felt the best for me visually, but you can choose high if you want)
  • Post Processing – Low (Low Post Processing for better performance, although setting it to the medium can be recommended also for better immersive visuals)
  • Shadows – Medium (this is the lowest setting, and you can’t go down further)
  • Textures – Medium (The textures look good enough on Medium)
  • Effects – Low (Visibility is already low. More effects don’t help at all)
  • Shading – Medium (The environment in the game is dark for the most part, so stuff like these won’t matter)
  • Vertical Synchronization – Off (V-Sync eats up too much of the performance, always recommended keeping it Off)
  • Tessellation – On (Makes the game look more detailed)

Try out these settings and if it does not work out for you try lowering down the metrics more like Shading, Terrain Detail, Volumetric Fog, Texture Streaming and check again. Continue tweaking those aspects until you get into a playable performance range (i.e. FPS 40-60).
