Dishonored Gets Free Update Ahead of DLC Release
New patch fixes problems with game, while also adding support for upcoming DLC.
Ahead of the upcoming “Brigmore Witches” DLC release, Dishonored has received a patch on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC that fixes a variety of bugs present in the game.
Among the official fixes listed are NPCs killed by falling damage now counting towards Total Kill stats, an issue where sometimes activating a door wouldn’t display an interaction dialog or open the door, and other issues, including minor graphical glitches and and localization inconsistencies across the NA and EU versions of the game. The fixes are across both the core game, as well as the earlier released “The Knife of Dunwall” DLC.
