Bethesda promises a performance enhancing patch for Dishonored 2 on PC

Anyone who has looked into Dishonored 2's PC version will know that the game is demanding, requiring the full power of GTX 1080 to play the game at 1080p 60FPS at the game's highest settings. 
 
Bethesda has now promised a new performance enhancing patch for Dishonored 2 on PC, which is expected to release within the next few days. This patch will allow players to achieve more consistent framerates and enhance the game's controls when using keyboard and mouse inputs. 

 

we are preparing a patch intended to provide improvements to allow for more consistent framerates on affected systems and provide an update to the mouse code for smoother input.

  

Right now Bethesda is recommending that PC players simply lower the game's graphical settings to enhance their in-game performance, with the developers recommending a GTX 1060 or an RX 480 for 1080p 60FPS gameplay at high settings and that players simply stay away from resolutions like 4K.

If you want to look further into Dishonored 2's PC performance, you can have a look at our detailed performance preview here. 

To put things simply, Dishonored proves exactly what gamers have feared when Bethesda announced their new review policy, releasing their game in a buggy state with lacklustre performance while carefully controlling all pre-release media to maximise sales. 

The big question today is, would have Bethesda have fixed Dishonored 2's issues before launch had critics been able to assess the title at an earlier?

Well unless it's a patch to switch over to the latest Unreal engine (obviously not) it will just be a case of lipstick on a pig. This version of the idTech engine they're using, sucks. End of story.Quote

They should have released a working game from the beginning, they knew very well how broken it is, which is typical for Bethesda and conveniently fits with their new review policy. I am interested in the game, however I'll wait until it's fully functional.Quote
