BioWare Plans For Dragon Age: Inquisition Patches Include New Features, Content

With Dragon Age: Inquisition out the door, and gamers across Thedas solving its mysteries, BioWare is readying some updates for the title. In addition to fixes for some nagging problems, the studio will be adding in features and content that couldn’t be completed in time for launch.

The game received a patch on launch day to address some problems, and users should expect another today on every system except Xbox One. That platform’s update should be available soon.

This first post-launch patch includes improvements to stability and crashes, audio glitches, and freezes. It also improves gameplay bugs that caused issues with some conversations, quests, combat, radar, and AI path finding.

Multiplayer gets some improvements in the areas of animations, bugs, stat reporting, and stability. PC users will also note that there are UI improvements (including improved mouse and keyboard controls) and better performance using Mantle drivers.

In future patches, BioWare will be adding in features and content that didn’t make the cut for launch. “We’ll be creating these new features and content and adding them into your game over time because we love our DAI players,” producer Scylla Costa writes. “Multiplayer will also be receiving regular content updates.”

The fixes are, at this point, routine in the gaming world. It’s the features and content updates that caught my eye. Adding improvements to the gameplay experience beyond just mending broken items is a good move in keeping the passionate fan base happy.
