Fix The Outer Worlds Game Looks Blurry

The game looks blurry and weird due to TAA and DOF that you can turn off. There’s no option for the same in the settings so we’ll tweak a few files.


Fix for Xbox Game Pass Owners

#1 – First locate where the game is installed the default location is

Location for Xbox Game Pass owners

%LOCALAPPDATA%\Packages\PrivateDivision.TheOuterWorldsWindows10_hv3d7yfbgr2rp\LocalCache\Local\Indiana\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor

#2 – This is where you will find the Engine.ini file, edit it

Add to Engine.ini (under whatever you have in there):

[/Script/Engine.RendererSettings]

r.PostProcessAAQuality=0
r.DepthOfFieldQuality=0

After editing the file (Xbox game pass) this is how it should look

AppData\Local\Indiana\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor

Epic Users can change their file settings to

r.MotionBlur.Max=0
r.MotionBlurQuality=0
r.DefaultFeature.MotionBlur=0
r.SceneColorFringe.Max=0
r.SceneColorFringeQuality=0
r.Tonemapper.GrainQuantization=0
r.Tonemapper.Quality=0
r.LensFlareQuality=0
r.DefaultFeature.LensFlare=0
r.DefaultFeature.Bloom=0
r.BloomQuality=0

#3 – Save the file. You can set the file to read-only mode to make sure that the game doesn’t change automatically.

This should fix the blurriness issue in the Outer Worlds. The game is beautiful as it is and the blur effects make it look weird.
