    A new PC patch for The Evil Within 2 has been released today, with some platform-specific fixes and several general updates. Many of the PC changes are to do with key binding bugs, such as “Sadist battle” now correctly using the reassigned key instead of E by default.

    Looks like the Life Gauge will show up as it should when using the sniper rifle, too. They’ve also addressed a crash that could happen when running The Evil Within 2 on an Intel Q6600 CPU.

    Here are the changes in 1.03, both for the PC and in general.
