How To Increase The LoD Distance In Days Gone?

LoD (Level of Detail) determines how far the game has to render in-game objects in a certain environment.

Unfortunately, Bend Studio doesn’t let you do that. However, there’s an alternative to this!

  • Press WIN + R on your keyboard or open Run from the Start menu on your desktop.
  • Once opened, type in %LOCALAPPDATA% and press ENTER. This will open the Local folder in the AppData folder on your PC.
