By decreasing its value, you’ll squeeze the camera closer to Joel. But by increasing its value, you’ll push the camera further back and widen your overall view. While it’s ultimately down to personal preference, the higher your FOV setting, the more you’ll be able to see at any given moment.

Below is a step-by-step breakdown to simplify the process:

  1. Pause the game and open the Options menu.
  2. Look to the bottom and select Accessibility.
  3. Advance to the Motion Sickness category.
  4. Adjust the FOV slider to your preferred setting
  5. Enjoy a wider FOV than the default option provides.
