Lords of the Fallen Best PC Settings: High FPS & Optimization

Learn how to optimize Lords of the Fallen and get significant FPS boost with the best PC settings.

Lords of the Fallen is a newly released game, and of course, no one will expect a game to be highly optimized on PC right after its release, especially when it’s on Unreal Engine 5. It will take a few more updates or patches for Lords of the Fallen to be highly optimized to run better on your PC. However, players can use the optimized settings for better game performance.

Update: Lords of the Fallen’s performance has significantly improved throughout several patches; most recently, Update v.1.1.598.

I’ve tested Lords of the Fallen on the following PC specifications:

  • CPU: Core-i5 12400f
  • GPU: RTX 4070
  • RAM: 16GB DDR4
  • Storage: 2.5TB SSD
  • Operating System: Windows 10
 
Key Takeaways
  • You’ll need to have at least an Intel i5-8400 or AMD Ryzen 5 2600 for CPU, NVIDIA GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX 590 for GPU, and 12 GB of RAM to run Lords of the Fallen.

The following graphics settings impact your game’s performance on your PC the most:

  • View Distance
  • Shadows
  • Visual Effects Quality
  • Reflection Quality
  • Global Illumination Quality
  • Foliage Quality

  • In my playthrough, I’ve experienced a lot of stuttering in the game, especially the in-game menus. The performance was smooth overall, however, do note I ran it on an RTX 4070. There weren’t any crashes I’ve encountered either. I have observed random FPS drops in a few areas, especially the Skyrest Bridge.

My Experience

Upon initial launch, players were suffering from a lot of performance issues with the game with complaints mainly being centered around stuttering. As someone who has been hooked up with Lords of the Fallen, I have also been struggling with FPS in different locations of the game.

Thankfully, the developers listened to the community and have released a few performance patches for the Lords of the Fallen:

With that being said, the game’s performance is still not perfect right now. Hence why I’ve been trying out different settings to optimize LOTF.

I believe that with a little tweaking, these settings should work perfectly for any player who is struggling to get better FPS.
