Dishonored 2 officially hits stores tomorrow, but a select few have the game already. While most, including our own review, say that the game is fantastic, there are some reports of issues with the PC version. With so many Dishonored 2 PC issues coming up, Bethesda has updated the PC system specs page, offering some advice on how to avoid these problems when you have the game.
The newly updated page reads: We are aware that some of you may be encountering issues with Dishonored 2 on PC. Please take a moment to review our recommendations to help better your experience.
General recommendations: Avoid using Alt-Tab when playing. Relaunch the game if you see performance dropping after using Alt-tab. Avoid having background applications running in addition to the game.
Video Settings: If you have performance issues, try lowering the resolution. Use 1440p resolution only if you have a very high-end GPU ( GTX 1070/1080 or equivalent). Keep the V-Sync activated, especially if you have large framerate fluctuations.. If you have framerate under 30 fps, adjust the “Adaptive Resolution” between minimum (50%) and default value (75%).
Advanced Settings: Use the “Auto” presets: this should adjust your visual settings without impacting your framerate. If you still have performance issues with “Auto” presets: Try deactivating the “TXAA Anti-Aliasing”. Try lowering the texture details”.
Hopefully following these new recommendations will helps you avoid Dishonored 2 PC issues, but be sure to let us know in the comments if you still encounter any.
