Brightness Settings

The RE Engine handles its brightness settings in a bit of an odd way, both in SDR and HDR modes. In this game, I would recommend playing with HDR if possible as I think it looks better when properly configured, but on many PC and monitor / TV setups, HDR can be a bit of a crapshoot. So here are some recommended settings for both HDR and SDR modes.

If you find you cannot activate HDR in-game, go into the Windows HDR settings and enable it there first before launching the game.

If HDR cannot be activated in-game, enable it in Windows HDR settings before launching the game.
  • Max Brightness: Rightmost setting
  • Min Brightness: Leftmost setting (skipped in HDR mode)
  • Final Brightness Setting: Two clicks to the left from the middle/default setting
