Change In-Game Settings

You can improve performance by making changes to Dishonored 2's in-game settings. To do so, select Options from the game's main menu and and navigate to Visuals.

From the Video Settings menu, try making changes to the following:

Screen Resolution - Only use 1440p resolution if you have a high-end GPU (such as a GTX 1070/1080 or equivalent)Windowed ModeV-Sync - We recommend you keep this setting activated, especially if you have framerate fluctuations. Adaptive Resolution - For low framerates, we recommend you adjust this so that it is between the minimum (50%) and default value (75%)FOV settingsDeactivate HBAO+ if you have an NVIDIA graphics card

If you are not seeing improvement, you can try making changes from within the Advanced Settings menu:

*Set the Preset to "Auto" to adjust your visual settings without impacting framerate.
