How To Make Dragon Age II Look A LOT Better On PC

Don't worry, elitist PC owners: while the demo for Dragon Age II made the game look like a sloppy console port, you can already download a patch that will have it looking more to your liking.

Developers BioWare have posted a "High Resolution Texture Pack" on their website, a 1.08GB download that will "enable higher detail replacements for most textures in game". Apparently this means "a big difference will be noticed on level art especially".

There is of course a catch: you don't just need a PC for this, you need a fairly good one (or at least a farily good graphics card), as "most of the benefits from the Hi-resolution textures will only be seen if you are able to run the game in DirectX 11".

You'll also need a card with at least 1024MB in memory. Because this is a self-installing pack, it should work with Steam versions of the game as well. You can download it at the link below.

    So does this mean it isn't coming with the actual game? or does it mean that this texture pack is for the demo and that the game will still look pretty?

      High res textures are not included in the final game except via this patch. Apparently BW had to leave making high res textures until after the game was ready.

      Wrong way around in my opinion. Start with high res work down to low res for the consoles. Would save time and effort.

    Why didn't this ship with the game?? I don't have an overly massive download quota for this shit.

    I'm also curious why skyrim looks better (imo) considering its an open world sand box. Anyways, The Witcher 2 is high enough on my radar at the moment to not care :)

    Thank goodness! I was beginning to think the game was DA:O skinned sequal...

    Good to hear, I was very underwhelmed with the DA2 demo's graphics.
