How to enable 21:9 aspect ratio in Darkest Dungeon 2

Enable 21:9 Aspect Ratio – Darkest Dungeon 2 is a Turn Based Strategy game developed on Dark Fantasy and developed by Red Hook Studios.

Since the game sequel’s transition from 2d to 3d, a lot of players now desire to switch their resolutions to ultrawide, that is, 21:9. You might also be aware of the fact that the game, in its beta as well as after its release, still does not provide in-game support for ultrawide. Don’t lose hope, though; we’ve got something for you!

So this article will guide you on enabling the 21:9 Ultra-Wide aspect ratio in Darkest Dungeon 2.

How to enable a 21:9 aspect ratio in Darkest Dungeon 2

As we mentioned, the game lacks in-game support for 21:9 resolution. However, there are still other ways to do it. You can start this process by selecting the highest resolution the game supports to ensure you have the best quality as you attempt to widen the game’s aspect ratio. This could differ from one monitor to another, but the common values are 3840×2160, 3440×1440, or 2560×1080. 

Here’s how you can get the 21:9 aspect ratio in Darkest Dungeon 2 (step-by-step):

  • Start the game, go to the main menu, and from there on, go to the settings.
  • Select the graphics tab and find where it says “display mode,” select it, and from the dialog box that appears, select windowed mode.
  • Now, click the resolution option and select the highest resolution possible; once again, with the people that have 21:9 support, the options available to them could look like 3840×2160, 3440×1440 or 2560×1080.
  • Now press the update button, select full-screen mode, and press update again.
  • Once done, you should be on a 21:9 aspect ratio!

This will set your monitor’s default resolution for the game Ultrawide to the extent it offers; you won’t be bothered by black bars or a highly stretched UI ever again! One massive issue is that whenever you exit and restart the game, you’ll have to repeat this process to get the game back to Ultrawide. While we hope that the game rolls out an update soon that supports the higher resolution, it still could take time, and this is the closest we’ve got to get that 21:9 Ultrawide! 

So this was all about how to enable a 21:9 aspect ratio in Darkest Dungeon 2.
