Players diving in to experience Atomic Heart’s dystopian Soviet setting might be shocked to discover that the game lacks any support for increasing the field of view. Modern titles are generally expected nowadays to have a FOV slider, especially on the PC version.

Currently, the only workaround is using the PC-exclusive program called Flawless Widescreen. This guide explains how to set up Flawless Widescreen for Atomic Heart on PC.
