Requirements
Permissions and credits
Enhance the fidelity, details, shadows and overall scenic feel of your Grim Dawn game using this ReShade preset.
Note: decently heavy on performance.

Overview
The ReShade preset focuses on a couple of topics:
  • Introducing HDR
  • Comic shader
  • Color balance
  • Enhanced fidelity
  • Emphasization of the feel of Grim Dawn areas

Performance impact
I am running the game at maximum graphical settings on 4k resolution, running this preset it lowers my FPS from 60 to 45-50 in most areas.
