Depth of Field in Octopath Traveler
Octopath Traveler

Octopath Traveler is a turn-based role-playing video game developed by Square Enix, in collaboration with Acquire. The game was exclusively available on the Nintendo Switch but has now made it’s way to PC via Steam. Here’s how you can disable the notorious depth of field in Octopath Traveler.

Disable Depth of Field in Octopath Traveler

Since the game is developed in Unreal Engine 4, it’s easy to add your own settings and modify existing parameters. Simply follow the steps mentioned below and get rid of the pesky depth of field setting, that is clearly meant for consoles

  • Head over to the following location C:UsersusernameDocumentsMy GamesOctopath_TravelerConfigWindowsNoEditor
  • Open the “Engine.ini” file
  • Find [SystemSettings]
  • Under this, add the following line anywhere
    r.DepthOfFieldQuality=0
  • Save the file

That’s all you need to do, and the depth of field blurriness will be removed from the game when you launch it next time. It’s always nice to see these settings available in-game, but I guess the developers didn’t think of giving users the option to do so.

If you want to gain further clarity in the game, you can add more variables to the ini file.
