Reshade Info

In this reshade I tried to resemble the E3 2019 demo as best as possible. The problem with trying to copy the demo 1-1 is that the game has many different weather conditions and times of day. So as soon as you get it looking close to identical, the sun moves and changes everything.

With this reshade I tried my best to make it look grim and dark like the game once did back in 2019; while also maintaining the vibrancy and color the game has. A lot of other reshades just turn the saturation down 800% and call it good but the game back in 2019 was still much more vibrant than the first game. I personally think that the game looked "dull" because of the certain weather conditions at the time.

Also while putting this reshade together I didn't want to add any disruptive and distracting lens effects like heavy bloom or fog. Some bloom and some chromatic aberration is used but it is light and only to help the lighting look nicer. 

Thank you :)

Preset Notes

The preset was made in 1920x1080 resolution on High quality settings with film grain turned on.
My Field of View was set to default and Motion Blur was enabled.
The preset will consume some fps, if it's too heavy for your pc you can disable some of the bloom effects for more frames.
