Prioritized for gameplay over extensive visuals.

with increased sharpness and visual fidelity.

Check out my YouTube channel where I showcase custom made ReShade presets. Thanks!

The goal for this preset is to get as close as possible to the E3 2017 presentation using minimal post-processing.
Anthem is one of those games where every frame counts due to poor optimization. So maintaining performance is top priority.

60 FPS Gameplay + Interceptor Build (gameplay starts @3:00)

Part 1: For Beginners. Advanced users check step 1 and skip to step 5.
1) Download the latest version of ReShade from here
2) Run the ReShade setup and locate Anthem.exe
-C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Anthem

4) Select 'Yes' to download standard effects and click 'OK'
