Dragon Age: Origins v1.05 Patch

Years later, BioWare is still pumping out patches for good ole Dragon Age: Origins. That’s good, because it means they haven’t forgotten about the excellent predecessor to one of this year’s biggest disappointments. The v1.05 patch is here.

Release notes:

General Fixes

Downloadable content will properly authenticate once installed.

Fixed an issue where some users with DirectX10-era video cards were experiencing significant lag within menus and interfaces as well as sudden spikes in area load times.

Dragon Age: Ultimate Edition Fixes

The Ultimate Edition installer for the EA Download Manager (EADM) version of the game was placing the CD-Key in the wrong location in the Windows registry. EADM has been replaced with EA’s Origin system and this error has been corrected in the new Origin installer. For those who purchased and installed the Ultimate Edition via EADM, the Patch 1.05 installer will copy that CD-Key into the correct Windows registry location.

True, but “fixes” are dissapointing. There are long time known bugs that were completely ignored. They just fixed gamebreakers like those DX10 and DLC issues. Period.

I hope they come up with more and better DLC. I’d rather play more Origins than DA2. The changes made in the last couple DA2 DLCs made hardly any difference in my book. I like the characterizations in DA2, though they’re certainly no better than DAO. But the combat and story were kinda crap.

I really hope Bioware listens to the criticisms and makes DA3 a real sequel to DAO and not a sequel to DA2.
