AMD has rolled out a new hotfix driver update for Dishonored 2. If you own an AMD GPU and want to try this game out, be sure to download the latest driver: Radeon Software Crimson Edition version 16.11.3.

AMD’s latest driver release is delivered specifically for Dishonored 2. Going through  the reviews, it doesn’t look like players are much pleased with the game’s performance.

The game Dishonored 2 is powered by the Void Engine, an engine that is based on the id Tech 5 Engine. Void Engine sports DX11 instead of OpenGL, contrary to id Tech 5 and 6.

The driver, apart from bringing support for Arkane Studios’ latest game, also adds several fixes regarding the Steam and Origin platforms that cause a crash when “using AMD X-Connect Technology on unplug”. But despite adding these fixes, there are still some problems that persist with the game. Have a look at the full changelog below.

Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.11.3 Highlights

Fixed issues
