Dragon Age 2 is a hotly awaited game, but it looks as if PC users will have to download a seperate patch if they want to play the game with super high resolution textures. Fernando Melo, the Senior Producer posted on the official forums with the information.
As expected, this news is not sitting well with PC gamers, as they feel this should have been included in the game, out of the box, rather than having to hunt for a seperate patch for the game.
We will be releasing the high res texture pack next week (Monday I believe).
It’ll be a manual download – you will be able to grab it here on the site similar to a patch for DAO. It will come with its own installer etc.
Also worth noting that there are new ATI and nVidia drivers due Monday (or Tuesday) I believe, which will increase performance and stability for DA2 on DirectX11 cards.
