DX11: Dishonored 2

Dishonored 2 is a stealth action-adventure video game developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. The series takes place in the fictional Empire of the Isles with the majority of Dishonored 2 set in the coastal city of Karnaca. After Empress Emily Kaldwin is deposed by an "otherworldly usurper", the player may choose between playing as either Emily or her bodyguard and father Corvo Attano as they attempt to reclaim the throne. Both Emily and Corvo employ their own array of supernatural abilities. They can alternatively decide to forfeit them altogether. There are a multitude of ways to succeed in each given mission, from stealth to purposeful violent conflict.

We flick the maximum quality settings at High and Ultra before each resolution run and disable VSYNC. Games typically should be able to run in the 40 FPS range combined with your monitor resolution. Dishonored 2 offers many settings like FOV your typical v-sync turned on or off, HBAO+ support. You can choose to run in Windowed, Fullscreen or Borderless Windowed modes. Dishonored 2 also offers adaptive resolution, from 50-100% albeit at this point it does not seem to be working.

In the advanced settings segment you'll find more configuration options like Texture quality, model details, environment details, water quality, view distance, shadow quality, decal quality and fog quality can all be tweaked from Very Low to Ultra. Anti-aliasing comes in FXAA Low, FXAA High and TXAA flavors. Also bloom, depth of field, lens flare, volumetric lighting, god rays, and even specifically disable shadows for rats and blood flies. We will test at Ultra Quality with TXAA at 1x. For testing HBAO+ has been turned off as this option is only available to Nvidia graphics cards.
