Dishonored 2 Release

Dishonored 2 is a brilliant title bringing back the great gameplay and storyline of the first and adding in some notable innovations. This has made some console players wonder why the great game is getting a mixed reviews on the internet. The reason for this is because the PC Master Race has apparently received the short end of the stick.

People have reported horrible overall optimization for the PC. Frame drops are recurrent, glitches are rampant, and horrible lag and stuttering have all been observed. It?s been said players would need a very high end gaming rig just to be able to run the game at a decent level, while all mid-tier and lower PC?s will suffer the full brunt of the bad optimization.

There are no notable complaints coming out for console yet, but there has been a ton on PC. The issues raised were all too real, developer Arkane Studios is currently working on all the points raised so far. But for the meantime, they?ve released some quick fixes to help improve the gameplay.
