A 16:9 resolution will display the same amount of content as another 16:9 resolution. The difference between the resolutions will be the detail of what you see, not how much you see.

    A smaller resolution will have a bigger UI, but UI size can be changed in settings, so that's not much of an issue.

  • You could change the new FoV setting to view more of the game world.

    @Chippies you can change it… up to a point. With very high resolutions, even the biggest interface is still kind of small. (and with extremely high resolutions, it's unplayable). HTH.
