4K Screenshot Graphical Comparison
When looking at all of these screenshots it is difficult to find any noteworthy visual differences. The largest difference is by far when it comes to shadow quality, particularly when it comes to the shadows from trees and other environmental objects.
In terms of details very little changes, with the only major difference being then the large floating rock in the distance. When it comes to objects that are "drawn in" there is no difference between min and max settings, everything draws in at the same distance regardless of settings.
All in all the graphical settings does little to change the world, just how it is dressed. The higher settings will give you high resolution shadows and textures, though little else will change.
Again we can see that very little changes, with the only major changes again being in the game's shadows, particularly when looking at the shadows of trees and the cliffside that the player is standing on.
The game's draw distance does not change with graphical settings, which is a basic option that would really help those who use lower end systems. High-end PC gamers would also appreciate the ability to increase the draw distance, even if it is just for taking screenshots.
