Darksiders Genesis is a top-down hack and slash action role-playing video game developed by Airship Syndicate and published by THQ Nordic. If you’re on PC and want to adjust Sharpening in Darksiders Genesis, here’s how.

The latest entry in the franchise is doing much better critically than the last Darksiders title, and fans are quite happy with it as well.

Adjust Sharpening in Darksiders Genesis

This will allow you to adjust Sharpening Blur in-game. The setting isn’t available in the in-game settings, but you can enable it through the configuration files.

  • Head over to the following location
Users/(Username)/AppData/Local/THQ Nordic/Darksiders Genesis/Saved/SaveGames/
  • Open the Engine.ini file using a text editor like Notepad
  • Add the following lines in it, and save it
[SystemSettings]
r.Tonemapper.Sharpen=1

This sharpens the image to offset the blur caused by FXAA and TAA.

A value between 0.5-1.0 is advised, but you can crank it up to 10(max).
