Chromatic Aberration Causing Headaches in Assassins Creed (AC) Mirage: Can You Turn It Off?

Have you been getting headaches from those blurry images and color fringes in Assassins Creed Mirage? Well, those are due to the Chromatic Aberration that is automatically enabled in the game. In most of the game it is an option that can be turned on, and off at will, but can you actually do the same in AC Mirage? The short answer to this question is No, you can’t, but this is not that simple. You see, there are multiple ways to either lower that motion blur or color fringe in the game that causes your headaches. So, let’s talk about those.

Players are having headaches due to the Chromatic Aberration in Assassins Creed Mirage

Ubisoft had announced their latest game in the Assassins Creed Series, named Mirage. The Assassins Creed Mirage brings the taste of the original Assassins Creed where you had no abilities and only utilized the true Assassins Training in combat.

Backed up by those special hidden blades, and weapons, you choose to stay hidden and get things done while not being even seen or found. Fighting in plain sight is only a choice when you are forced to do so.

What is Chromatic Aberration?

In the game, when you look closely, there are Blurred Color Outlines on Characters. These are called Chromatic Aberrations and tend to make the image worse. You will find that in most games, but it isn’t that much. In AC Mirage, you will notice it more often, when the character is up close.

Chromatic Aberration is too bad in AC Mirage, and players can’t even turn it Off

Why is Chromatic Aberration bad?

To most people, this might not even matter, but to others, this can cause severe headaches or motion sickness. The strange outlines on characters are bad for those who don’t like motion blur in games.

Can you Turn the Chromatic Aberration Off in AC Mirage?

No, the game doesn’t provide you with an option to Turn Off Chromatic Aberration. You could do that in previous games, but here, this is impossible. But, there is a turnaround to this as well like;

  • Reducing Bloom
  • Disabling Motion Blur
  • Turn off HDr in Assassins Creed Mirage

These options do tend to lower the Chromatic Aberration but don’t seem to disable it completely. Also, don’t sit too close to the monitor, as it increases your chances of getting headaches or motion sickness from this issue.

This is something that is missing from the game but did you know you can now change the Sprint Controls and Disable Enemy Proximity Effect in Assassins Creed Mirage?
