Inquisitors around the world will rejoice to hear that many of Dragon Age: Inquisition’s bugs will be addressed in Patch 2, releasing today.
Patch 2 focuses on a multitude of stability concerns, but also addresses the following improvements and fixes:
- Stability – Various crashes, freezes, audio/voice glitches, and many stability improvements.
- Gameplay – Conversations, quests, plot states, combat, UI, camera, controls, follower/enemy AI and path finding, exploits, radar, and search.
- Multiplayer – In addition to some of the gameplay improvements listed above, multiplayer fixes also cover areas such as animations, game mode bugs, stat reporting, and stability/crash fixes.
- PC – Numerous control & UI fixes, fixes to some hitching, improved Mantle performance, graphical glitches.
BioWare also mentioned that they already have plans for a third patch, and they are paying close attention to the community’s biggest concerns.
Finally, the developer wanted to point out that due to time constraints, certain features they wanted to add never made it into the final product of the game prior to launch, but that they are hard at work to create and implement those elements over the course of Dragon Age: Inquisition’s lifespan.
The Dragon Age: Inquisition Patch 2 Notes include a full list of fixes across the various systems.
Dragon Age: Inquisition launched on November 18th, 2014 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Middle of Nowhere Gaming gave it a glowing review score of 9.8 out of 10.
I’m ready to continue playing my DAI campaign without so many of the bugs noted here. I’m already plenty enjoying my trek through Thedas, but I know that not having to worry about the game crashing or characters pausing mid-conversation will be a major step forward. I also want to hear more about these features that haven’t yet made it into the game. I wonder if these will be free or paid additions. Hmmmm…
