Outer Wilds ROG Ally Game Settings

Playing at 900p with a locked 18W for more battery time with the graphics set to mostly medium got me an average 45-60+ FPS in Outer Wilds. Some planets you land on could give you better performance than others. Overall it’s a smooth experience on the ROG Ally that you could push further if you play at 25W TDP.
