Bethesda Responds To Dishonored 2 PC Issues

Bethesda has updated the Dishonored 2 launch FAQ with tips to help people that are experiencing performance issues. Most of the recommendations are of the "turn X setting down" variety and the company does say that 1440p is only for high end systems running GeForce GTX 1070 or GTX 1080 cards. No word on a timeline for a patch.

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 theآ "Adaptive Resolution" between minimum (50%) and default value (75%).

Advanced Settings

  • Use the "Auto" presets: آ 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
