Dragon Age: Inquisition PC patch 3 released today

Judging by recent posts in the Dragon Age: Inquisition ‘PC Community concerns’ thread over at the official forums, PC Patch 3 began to be distributed through Origin at around 10am Pacific US time (6pm UK).

This is the patch detailed by BioWare in a blog post yesterday, which claims to fix bugged party banter and add a walk toggle (among other things.) It’s said to be a “small, bug-fix only patch to address some high-frequency issues affecting the majority of our players,” so those hoping for larger scale UI changes for things like the ‘tactical camera’ will be disappointed once again.

Here’s what is in the third Dragon Age: Inquisition PC patch:


Added key binding that allows players to walk.

Added mouse cursor scaling.

Fixed issue that could result in the mouse getting stuck in mouse-look mode when players alt-tabbed out of the game in full-screen mode.

Fixed display bars to correctly reflect items that alter maximum health.


Changed party banter system to be less random to prevent extra-long periods where no conversations would occur.

Fixed issue that could result in one of Dorian’s conversations not being available for some players.

Fixed issue that could result in a cutscene not firing for Dorian’s plot when players enter the Gull and Lantern.

Fixed issue that could result in Sera’s Verchiel plot being broken.

Fixed issue with the demon that could spawn during Solas’s personal quest.

Changed Tactical Camera so that it no longer re-centers when the player changes party members.

Fixed exploit that allowed for infinite influence.

Fixed issue that allowed players to exploit their gold value in single-player mode.

Fixed allied mage AI so they did not dispel targets that the player had frozen.

Fixed issue that caused the bar displaying armor rating to not update correctly for crafted gear.

Fixed issue that caused extra potions granted by items to be lost when players return to Skyhold.

Fixed issue that caused Mind Blast’s upgrade, Fortifying Blast, to not provide additional barrier.

Fixed issue that could result in the opt-in conversation UI continuing to be displayed if players opted out very quickly as the UI was starting to be displayed.

Fixed issue that could result in the world map being permanently displayed in the Storm Coast.

Fixed issue that could result in being unable to switch party members after looting.

Fixed issue that could result in party members not following orders to revive a party member in Tactical Camera mode.

Fixed issue that could result in people being unable to discover all the regions in the Exalted Plains.

Fixed issue that could cause dragons to become unresponsive.

Fixed issue that would cause dragons to freeze during their roar.

Fixed issue that could cause some conversations to be “hitchy.”

Fixed issue that could cause Varric’s legs to do odd things in some opt-in conversations.

Fixed Masterwork Prowler Armor so it no longer distorts on certain characters.

Fixed issue that could cause Harmon to disappear in certain circumstances.

Fixed a few non-herb crafting materials that were showing up in the Herbs section of the inventory. They are now correctly in the Other section.


Enabled push-to-talk functionality in the multiplayer end of match screen.

Enabled push-to-talk in the multiplayer armor upgrade menu.

Fixed issue where changing multiplayer match settings would take effect without confirming changes.

Fixed issue that could result in players entering multiplayer matches without any mapped abilities in certain circumstances.

Fixed case that could cause keys to not drop in multiplayer mode.

Fixed issue that would cause the potion mapped to the first slot to also be used when pushing the 9 key in multiplayer mode.

Fixed issue that would cause the camera to spin at the end of a multiplayer match and not display the end of match screen.

Fixed issue in multiplayer mode that would result in the healing portion of Rampage to stop working in certain circumstances.

Tuned Strength of Spirits to be more useful in multiplayer mode.

Tweaked the balance of the Demon Commander in multiplayer mode.

Fixed issue that could result in items not displaying their cards when chests are opened in multiplayer mode.

      I’m disappointed. I was hoping for Tactical Camera fixes/adjustments. Apparently there are also significant class bugs still in the game – the worst of which is that 2-handed abilities aren’t ‘detonating’ properly.

      Bioware is really shy about fixing bugs 🙁

      Like I said before, this game won’t be more or less fixed (at least) until February. Before I thought it would be around the first week of Feb but at the pace they are going, now I think it would be the last week of Feb if they hurry with the next patch or…March or even April…Bioware time is the next Valve time.

      It was the last game I bought from those suckers. Everything else either downloaded or ignored. I played that shit for 1-2 hours and then left it for bad.
      The company mutated into a console oriented casual gaming software house, nothing I want to support any time in the future.

        I just feel bad that I got suckered in by the misleading video footage pre-release. I was really hoping for a return to form. I should’ve known better after the shiny polished turd that was ME3. Fucking hype, man…
