Dragon Age:Inquisition’s imminent PC patch gets chatty

DAI PC 3

The definitive version of Dragon Age: Inquisition is supposed to be on PC. Considering how gorgeous it looks on PS4, that must be saying something. But that doesn’t mean it’s perfect, and the latest patch is meant to fix some of the biggest problems.

According to Mark Darrah, we don’t have much longer to wait:

But what will Patch 3 fix? According to the patch notes, it’s all about squashing bugs, particularly those that hampered progression or experience.

Based on feedback from our players, we tweaked the banter system to be less random in order to prevent extra-long periods of silence. We fixed quest blockers in the personal quests of Dorian and Sera as well as a spawning issue in Solas’s personal quest (I won’t elaborate to avoid light spoilers).

There are also some fixes for the multiplayer side of things, as well as key bindings for walking and push to talk functionality.

A lot of people seem to be struggling with some rather silent companions while wandering the open world. I have been lucky enough not to experience this, but I have had plenty of other strange bugs and glitches. I’ve found that mixing up my party composition leads to more interesting conversations; it seems that until I progress the plot or explore a new environment, certain combinations of party members simply run out of things to say.

Have you been playing it on PC and exploring in silence? That would positively ruin the game for me – much of the life of the game comes from the silly or insightful conversations between my party members.

    Still super keen to pick this up. And with each patch I’ll be getting more of a complete game when I do. πŸ˜€

    What’s this? A patch to fix a game that did not work on release? I say, quite interesting indeed

    Is this the real patch?
    Is this just DLC?

    thanks, give us the patch we needed, after the most avid fans have finished the game twice, and wont play the game again for years.

    never did get that audio bug though. a few crash problems, but nothing major.

    I’ve been to emerged to notice. Sera and Iron Bull really have some good banter when talking about girls πŸ˜€

    “Iron Bull: Did you see that blonde woman a few towns back?

    Sera: The one with the huge titties?

    Iron Bull: There’s a woman behind those tits, Sera.

    Sera: Yeah, way WAY behind them.”

        She has by far the best banter, and her and Iron Bull make me laugh.

          How does she compare to my Isabela? I read a bit about her, but reading does not equal “knowing” hehe

            Well firstly Isabela isn’t in Inquisition. Sera is more crazy, psychotic maybe?

            January 20, 2015 at 11:15

            Still sad about no Isabela…more crazy hmmmm could be fun…will make a female warrior who acts crazy as well just for her! Then an overly serious male rogue for Cassandra.

        When you first go to Iron Coast and you see the Dragon and the Giant fighting Iron Bull says “Oh, that is badass!” and Sera laughingly says “Can we stick around and watch”

      Apparently, if you don’t romance either Dorian or Bull, and have them and Sera in the party, you get a nice convo on the noises the two of them make at night from Sera.

      BOOM. CRASH. AARRRGGHH

        Sera: It’s like falling through a tree into custard! “TOO HIGH!” wham! “TOO FAST!” wham! “LEEAAVES!” wham! SPLAT!
        Dorian: I’m not sure which which is worse, the mockery or the accuracy…
        Bull: Eh. Depends on how much rest the trees had.
