Dragon Age 2 PC beta patch out

By on March 14, 2011

BioWare released a beta patch for the PC version of Dragon Age 2. Sadly, this patch does not address the performance issues that a lot of PC gamers have been experiencing. Instead, this beta patch updates the game’s version to 1.1 and fixes various issues involving save games, controls and a Steam-related problem related to voiceovers not playing. Release notes and download link after the jump!

What platforms is this for?
•    PC only. This patch does not address issues impacting Mac, Xbox360 or PS3.
Where’s the actual patch file?
•    The beta patch can be manually downloaded HERE
What are the patch notes?
Fixed save game issues on single core machines
Fixed game asking for non-existent drives
Fixed release control issues where some players were unable to unlock correctly
Fixed a Steam-specific issue related to VO not playing after switching languages**
What does BETA mean?
BETA means:
Users apply this patch at their own risk. In general, we recommend you only download and apply it if you are affected by the specific issues listed in the patch notes.
**Steam does not support BETA patches. Steam users will have to wait for the final non-BETA patch before they can take advantage of these fixes. We’re working on it but, unfortunately, this will not occur in time for the weekend.
