Wild Hearts How to Max FPS Best Settings to Use

The anticipated hunting game Wild Hearts has finally released, though it’s not without its share of issues. In particular, PC gamers have been vocal about the game’s performance being far from optimal.

If you’re one of the many affected by the performance issues in Wild Hearts, this guide will show you the best settings to use to maximize your FPS.

To open the graphics settings, press the Escape key and choose settings. After that, head to the Graphics tab in the menu.

The first thing you’ll want to do is to turn VSync to Disabled and FPS Limit to Unlimited. This should uncap your framerate completely, allowing your PC to render as many frames as it can.

If you get distracting screen-tearing, however, re-enable VSync. This will cap your FPS but will remove the screen-tearing artifacts.

Right below FPS Limit is the Preset option. Set this to Standard, which we will use as our baseline for further optimization as we go down each of the graphics options available.

You can also attempt to set it to Low or Lowest if you have a weak PC or the game isn’t performing well at all for you. However, this will come at a considerable cost of visual fidelity.

Now, let’s dive into the more detailed graphic settings.

The first setting under the Preset settings is the Texture quality.

If you have a GPU with 4 GBs of VRAM or less, set this to Low. If you have 6-to-8 GBs of VRAM, set it to Medium. With more than 8GBs of VRAM, feel free to set this to High.

That said, here’s how you can optimize the game:

  • Model Quality should be set to Medium for a balance of performance and visuals. You can set it Low or Lowest if you have performance issues, but Medium should work in most cases.
  • Leave Texture Filter on Medium. Realistically, setting it to Low or High should have basically no noticeable impact on performance. Medium should be a good balance.
  • Particle Effects should also be set to Medium. However, feel free to switch to Low if your PC struggles during particle-heavy scenes such as combat.
  • Procedural Density is best set to Low. This setting affects things such as procedurally placed vegetation, setting it to Low should be a great boost to your performance.
  • Shadows should be set to Low as well. Sadly, the game doesn’t allow you to disable shadows, but setting them to Low is a great FPS increase.
  • Set Reflections to Low. This should only affect performance and visuals when there are reflective surfaces such as water. You might not notice much of a change otherwise.
  • Set Global Illumination to either Medium or Low. This setting can affect the game’s visuals greatly, so you would want to use Medium to keep decent visuals or Low to maximize FPS.
  • Clouds should also be set to Low. This only impacts the appearance of clouds, so setting it to Low should increase FPS without sacrificing important visuals.
  • Set Anti-Aliasing to Off. This will provide the best performance, but you might notice jagged edges around objects.

If you wish to keep some Anti-Aliasing on, FXAA should have the least impact on your FPS compared to TAA.

There are only 3 different settings in this final section: Motion Blur, Ambient Occlusion, and Depth of Field (DOF).

Motion Blur somewhat depends on your preference but also on your current FPS. Generally speaking, you should enable this when your FPS is lower.

The added Motion Blur to objects somewhat masks the low framerate of animations, which can make things feel smoother. If you can’t get FPS higher than 30, enable it.

Ambient Occlusion is also another setting that can have a big impact on visuals. Ideally, you should keep it enabled. However, disable it if you want to maximize FPS.

Lastly, Depth of Field can be safely disabled. It only blurs objects that aren’t the focus of the scene.

If none of the settings and recommendations above help you, consider either refunding the game on Steam or waiting for patches.

The developers at Omega Force have said that they’re aware of the performance issues affecting all platforms and are working on a patch that should release in the coming weeks.
