How to Preset Game Difficulty, Resolution, and More on PS5

PlayStation 5 is a really powerful console and it brings a lot of impressive new features. You get 4K 120FPS support, 8K support, adaptive triggers, a handy compose button for streaming, and much more. One of my favorite features of the PS5 is the ability to set custom presets. It solves the hassle of going through all the options in the games to set your preferred resolution, difficulty level and more. Also if you play most of your games at the same settings, you can adjust the game difficulty, resolution etc on PS5. Here’s how to set it up in advance.

Preset Game Difficulty, Resolution and More on PS5

PS5 lets you use presets for a number of in-game settings. While these settings will affect most games you will play on your PlayStation, there may be some games that do not offer support for certain settings, in which case these presets will not be applied to them.

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

Preset Game Difficulty

If you’re a casual gamer like me, you probably aren’t playing on the hardest difficulty settings. So why go to the trouble of choosing an easy difficulty setting or a normal difficulty setting in every game, right?

  • Go to Settings -> Saved Data and Game/Application Settings.

  • Select ‘Game Presets’ and go to ‘Difficulty’.

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

Preset Gaming Performance Mode/Resolution Mode

If you want the best gaming experience in terms of frame rates, you should probably pre-set your PS5 to run in Performance Mode. On the other hand, if you don’t care too much about the FPS in your games but want the graphics to look as gorgeous as possible, you can use the Resolution mode.

  • Go to Settings -> Saved Data and Game/Application Settings.

Preset First-Person and Third-Person View Settings

People who play a lot of games often have very particular preferences when it comes to inverted camera movements. If you are tired of always having to change settings in games to reverse camera movement, you can preset it by following the steps below.

  • Go to Settings -> Saved Data and Game/Application Settings.

Preset Subtitles and Audio Settings

Many games with single-player campaigns have subtitles to keep you up to date with the conversations. If you’re like me, you prefer to keep the subtitles on. Here’s how you can make subtitles always on in games that support them.

  • Go to Settings -> Saved Data and Game/Application Settings.
