A modder has released a new Tales or Arise PC mod, which allows players to modify the draw distance of NPCs.
The RPG was released last week, but as expected, modders have already gone to work to release the first modifications for the title, one of them being an SDK mod, which allows players to enable the developer console, increase the NPC draw distance, and various other small improvements.
You’ll find the main features of this DLL modification down below:
- A proof-of-concept NPC draw distance modifier, should allow NPCs to stay visible for much further, hopefully without issues!
- Dev-console will now also be unlocked automatically, so manually injecting other tools isn't required (if it doesn't work for you try editing your Input.ini file, search google for "Input.ini ConsoleKey" for more info)
- Adds support for loading in loose, unpacked files without needing to pak them first (should be most useful for modders testing out their changes!)
- Skips the launch intro logos automatically
- Allows you to specify your own custom r.Shadow.MaxCSMResolution & r.ScreenPercentage cvars, without the game overwriting them in memory
- Can prevent the game from changing your post-process settings (chromatic aberration / vignette...) during cutscenes
- Fixes the r.TemporalAA.Upsampling cvar, letting you enable it inside Engine.ini or the dev-console, to help slightly improve TAA's visuals.

Developed by Bandai Namco, Tales of Arise was released for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S last week. Our very own Francesco de Meo reviewed the latest Tales installment and praised its story, atmosphere, combat, and characters.
With its engaging story, dark atmosphere, charming characters, and excellent combat, Tales of Arise provides an experience that feels both new and familiar at the same time, making for a game that both long-time fans and newcomers will enjoy. While the excessive linearity and the removal of multiplayer will disappoint some, the pros far outweigh the cons, making Tales of Arise one of the best entries in the series to date.
