It can get tiresome going through games individually and setting difficulty or camera preferences for each one. The PS5 now allows you to control some of these settings on a system level for games that support it. In addition, you can also choose whether subtitles display automatically and if a game should favor performance or resolution modes. You can now hop into some of the best PS5 games with ease.

How to setup preferred game presets on PS5

  1. Go to Settings in the top right corner of the homescreen.
  2. Scroll down and select Saved Data and Game/App Settings.

From here you can set your preferred settings, which will then be automatically applied to games that support this feature. Selected settings will be applied differently depending on the game.

  • Difficulty: For games with difficulty settings, you can set the default to Easiest, Easy, Normal, Hard, Hardest. Not selecting any option uses what the game normally defaults to.
  • Performance Mode or Resolution Mode: For games that offer the choice between a performance and resolution mode, favoring visuals or frame rate, you can select which you prefer to always default.
  • First-Person View: You can select normal or inverted vertical and horizonal controls for games played in first-person.
  • Third-Person View: You can select normal or inverted vertical and horizonal controls for games played in third-person.
  • Subtitles and Audio: Select if you’d like subtitles to be turned on my default and whether or not a game should default to its original native audio language or the language set on your console.
