Optimizing Your Settings



Salutations Non Epic Game supporters! The game runs very well and looks great if you set your graphic options to Xbox One X settings in my experience they nearly doubled my performance from 40fps to 70fps on a i7 8700k 16GB RAM GTX 1070 at 1440p. These settings are as follows:
