A new Dishonored 2 PC patch has hit the game’s Steam beta branch. This one promises additional optimization and performance improvements, along with several other tweaks. Full patch notes here.
Game was running reasonably well for me on the previous beta patch (60 FPS consistent with a few dips to 45 or so in big areas when sweeping the FOV across an area); updating to this newest patch now, will report back on any significant impact.
The game is running from a standard HDD, which may have some performance impact, but the frame drops I’ve been getting are not consistent with what’s being asked of my card (settings are at ultra apart from shadows, which I left at medium; playing at 1920x1080).
