Since the patch is in Beta, you’ll have to go through a series of steps to get it. Log into steam and right-click on Dishonored 2 in your library. Select Properties, then Betas, then select BetaPatch from the drop-down menu. When the game is done updating, the new title in your library should change to “Dishonored 2 [BetaPatch]”. If this doesn’t happen, restart Steam, and you should be good to go.
