Dishonored 2 is not the most optimized game available right now, with many users complaining about various performance issues. Fortunately, Arkane Studios is working hard to make sure that the game will eventually be up to par with our expectations, and after releasing patch 1.02 about a week ago, the developers are now rolling out Beta Patch 1.03. This update mainly focuses on improving the game’s performance, but it also brings some mouse-related optimizations that will surely be appreciated. The update also enables a setting to turn off the Camera Motion Blur effect, and there have been some enhancements to the user interface and the options menu as well.
You can install this new update for Dishonored 2 yourself using Steam, and you can also have a look at the entire changelog below:
