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."

          I have a problem where ever patch I just turn the settings up and get the same framerate as before. But now it looks so pretty, and the framerate is a little better than low settings at launch!!

      The launch was real bad but I'm impressed with how fast they've been moving on making it right. The second beta patch pretty much fixed the game for me.

        One big performance hog this seems to have fixed is GLAAAASS SURFACES which were really bad before

          Yeah. The big killer now is shadows. Anything over "medium" destroys my system. I can literally have ultra pre-set and as long as the shadows stay medium or lower be in the 50-60 fps range with a 1060.
