Dishonored 2 PC Beta Patch v1.1 Released

In case you are one of the many users who are experiencing huge performance problems with the PC version of Dishonored 2, you'll be very interested in the beta patch that Bethesda and Arkane Studios have released. The patch includes a fix for a bug that made mouse sensitivity tied to framerate, an issue that affected performance on AMD cards in scenes where clothes physics were on display, and an issue that affected CPU task priority.

Another update that will address a broader range of issues is apparently in the work, but in the meantime, here are the instructions to access the beta:
