Dishonored 2

Bethesda released a beta PC patch for Dishonored 2. It addresses a few of the game’s many issues.

Dishonored 2 on PC was riddled with problems, with lots of players getting uneven performance, wild frame-rate drops, crashes, and weird mouse response, among other problems.

Bethesda promised fixes late last week, saying a patch would “provide improvements to allow for more consistent framerates on affected systems and provide an update to the mouse code for smoother input.”

A 1.1 beta patch is now available on Steam; you can access it by going to the “betas” tab in the game’s properties menu. A full breakdown of what’s in the patch can be found here.

Per Bethesda, the 1.1 beta patch addresses:

  • Mouse improvements, including a fix for sensitivity being framerate dependent
  • Fixes an AMD cloth physics issue, which impacts framerates at various points in the game
  • Fixes an issue affecting CPU task priority – the game no longer switches CPU task priority

“Our work on Dishonored 2 continues,” they write. “Update 1.2 development is underway and will address a broader range of issues including performance and is estimated to be available in the next week.”
