Dishonored 2 hasn't had the strongest of starts on PC, with various issues meaning that beta update 1.2 had to be released to address them, however, it seems Arkane Studios aren't done tweaking the PC version just yet, as PC beta update 1.3 is now available to download as well.

In terms of recommended drivers, the Steam page recommends NVIDIA driver 375.95 or AMD driver 16.11.4, but if you meet these suggested requirements, you can access the update by right clicking on the game in your Steam library, selecting properties, then betas, and then selecting BetaPatch on the dropdown menu. After you close that, the game should update, and here's what the official Steam page says is included in the update:

Update v 1.3 overview:

General performance and optimisation improvements
Added a setting to turn OFF Camera Motion Blur
Additional mouse improvements
Fixed various issues related to user interface
Fixed various issues related to the Option menu
Fixed various issues related to multiple monitors

Known Issues:

Changing the settings from TXAA to FXAA and not applying the change sets the TXAA Sharpness to 1 instead of its previous value
Disconnecting and reconnecting a controller during gameplay may cause the controls to become locked
----->Alt-tabbing or pressing the Xbox button on the controller should return controls
The game crashes to desktop when loading into gameplay on a Phenom II processor
----->Phenom II processors are currently not supported
Adaptive Resolution can get stuck at -1 when restoring video settings
----->Changing the V-Sync option will allow the Adaptive Resolution slider to move again
