Ghost of Tsushima Steam Deck Settings

With these settings, you’ll be able to maintain a solid 30 FPS on your Steam Deck when playing Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut without making the game look that much worse.

While you can just set all of the graphics to low and call it a day, you can squeeze a surprising amount of visual fidelity out of Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut on the Steam Deck and other handheld devices without tanking the framerate too much. These devices are surprisingly customizable, and that’s perfect for a game like this.

  • Texture Quality: Medium
  • Texture Filtering: 4x Anisotropic
  • Shadow Quality: Low
  • Level of Detail: Medium
  • Terrain Detail: Medium
  • Volumetric Fog: Low
  • Depth of Field: Very low
  • Screen Space Reflections: Low

If you want, you can drop some of the settings a bit lower and shoot for a 40 FPS target for a smoother experience. It may not seem that much higher than 30 FPS, but trust us, 40 FPS feels a whole lot closer to 60 than it does 30. A lot of PS5 games offer a 40 FPS mode nowadays, for example, so people are starting to catch on to that fact. Just make sure to set your device’s refresh rate to 40hz to match the framerate target.

There’s a lot to love about Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut, and now the game is even more accessible on PC.
