New Dishonored 2 PC patch tackles performance and mouse issues

Bethesda and Arkane Studios pushed out the third performance-focused patch for the PC version of Dishonored 2.

Update 1.3, currently in beta, is focused on providing "general performance and optimization improvements," per its patch notes.

Items of interest include a bug that impacts mouse speed; a rendering bug that disrupts lighting on NPCs, creating a red glow; and fixes for "various issues related to" the UI, multiple monitors, and the options menu.

To grab Update 1.3 while it's still in beta, you'll need to opt in to betas. Open Steam, right-click Dishonored 2 in your library, select Properties, then go to the Betas menu and click BetaPatch.

Technical difficulties didn't prevent John Keefer from thoroughly enjoying Dishonored 2 when he played it for review. "Strong level design, open world exploration and the ability to play your own way with powers that can be adapted or modified how you want makes the game one of the top titles of the year."
