The PlayStation 5 is a really powerful console and it brings a ton of awesome new features. You get 4K 120FPS support, 8K support, adaptive triggers, a convenient create button for streaming, and more. One of my favorite PS5 features is the ability to set custom presets. It solves the hassle of all games options to set your preferred resolution, difficulty level, etc. If you also play most of your games with the same settings, here’s how to preset game difficulty, resolution, and more. on PS5

Preset game difficulty, resolution and more on PS5

The PS5 allows you to use presets for many game settings. Although these settings affect most games you will play on your PlayStation, some games may not support certain settings, in which case these presets will not apply to them.

In this article, we’ll look at using preset difficulties, resolution, FPV and TPV camera options, subtitles, and more for all of your PS5 games. If you are only looking for the methods to predefine a particular option, you can use the table of contents below to jump directly to this section.

Preset game difficulty

If you’re a casual gamer, like me, you probably don’t play the games on the hardest difficulty levels. So why bother selecting an easy difficulty level or a normal difficulty level in every game, right?

  • Just go to Settings -> Saved Data and Game/App Settings.
  • Select “Game Presets” and go to “Difficulty”.
  • You can now use a preset difficulty between easiest to hardest.

This will apply to games that offer difficulty settings in their options. Most games offer this option, so it’s definitely something you can take advantage of.

Preset Game Performance Mode / Solving Mode

If you’re looking to get the best gaming experience in terms of frame rates, you should probably preset your PS5 to run in Performance Mode. On the other hand, you can use Resolution mode if you don’t care too much about FPS in your games, but want the graphics to be as spectacular as possible.

  • Just go to Settings -> Saved Data and Game/App Settings.
  • Select “Game Presets”, then “Performance Mode or Resolution Mode”.
  • You can now choose between the two modes or keep the “Game Default” setting if you want the game to decide which setting to use on your console.

Preset first person and third person view settings

People who play a lot of games usually have very specific preferences regarding reverse camera movements. If you’re tired of always having to adjust the settings in games to reverse camera movement, you can preset it by following the steps below.

  • Go to Settings -> Saved Data and Game/App Settings.
  • Select “Game Presets” and navigate to “First Person View” or “Third Person View”.
  • Here you can invert the controls for vertical camera movement and horizontal camera movement.

Predefined subtitles and audio settings

Many games that feature single-player campaigns have subtitles so you can follow the conversations. If you’re like me, you prefer to keep the subtitles. Here’s how you can ensure that subtitles are always enabled in games that support them.

  • Go to Settings -> Saved Data and Game/App Settings.
  • Select “Game Presets” and select “Subtitles & Audio”.
  • Change “Show subtitles” to “On”. You can also change the audio language here to the one set on your console or the original in-game audio.

Preset game settings on PS5 and dive right into your games

Now that you know how to use the game presets on your PS5 console, I recommend that you configure them according to your preferences. That way, when you install a new game, you can dive straight into the game itself without worrying too much about the settings and making sure that the difficulty levels, subtitle settings, etc. are all set to your preferences.
