The Outer Worlds is Obsidian Entertainment‘s latest RPG and is now finally available on PC and consoles. If you’re on PC, here’s how you can disable Chromatic Aberration in The Outer Worlds.

Chromatic Aberration is a visual effect that can be off-putting for users, and it’s always appreciated if the game has an in-game option to disable it.

Disable Chromatic Aberration in The Outer Worlds

Follow the steps below to disable the visual setting

  • Head over to the game’s configuration files path, which is the following for

Epic Games Store


Xbox Game Pass

  • Open Engine.ini using any text editor, such as Notepad
  • Add [SystemSettings] to the bottom of the file, if it isn’t already there
