How to Change the Field of View in The Outer Worlds


GamingHow to Change the Field of View in The Outer Worlds

Field of View, also known as FOV changes how much of a scene fits into the games camera. Whilst the default value is always perfect the majority of players, the option to change it is always good to have.

Below, we’ve put together a very quick guide showing just how to change the FOV in The Outer Worlds. For more guides & content for The Outer Worlds on PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One, make sure to check out our dedicated area here!

Changing the FOV

To change the Field of View, start by opening the main menu. You can do this on PC by pressing Escape, or by pressing the Start button on a console. From the main menu, choose the ‘Settings’ option.

Open the Settings

If you’re on PC, the window should be similar below. On console, it shouldn’t be much different. Head on over to the gameplay tab.

Change the Field of View options

At the bottom of the screen, you will see ‘Field of View’. I can’t confirm whether this option exists on console yet, however it’s there on PC. The default value is 75, and can be increased or decreased exponentially. If you ever need to reset these settings, press the ‘Default’ button at the bottom of the screen.
