Dark Alliance - Controls and Best Settings Banner
This is a guide on how to find the best controls and game settings setup in Dungeons and Dragons: Dark Alliance. To learn more about which settings to tweak to enchance your gameplay, read on.

General Settings


You can turn off a number of pop-up icons or displays to increase screen visiblity.


It is recommended to turn off Camera Shake as it will distract you during combat. The default Rotation Speeds may also be too slow during combat so you can increase these according to your discretion.


It might help you to change your subtitle background if you feel you're having a hard time reading the subtitles.


Turning off or changing the subtitle opacity might help with minimizing the amount of UI in your screen, increasing visibility.

PS4 / PS5 Controller Setup

There are two control presets available. The only significant difference between the two is in the combat controls.
