  1. Dragon Age 2 is officially launched in North America today and BioWare has decided to celebrate its arrival with a little treat for PC gamers. Folks playing the sequel on a well-specced machine can download a high-resolution texture patch that adds an option to enable higher detail replacements for most textures in the game. We haven't seen a before and after comparison, but BioWare says the enhanced visuals are especially noticeable on level art.

    Wow. Maybe a certain other developer should put more than 1 texture set in their games. Nice to know that bioware is making some effort to make a good PC game unlike the other unnamed developer.

    For those who are in the USA and Pre-Ordered the game through Steam, is it already playable? I'm in South America and its still locked... (I know this has nothing to do with the topic above) :(

    I preordered it through Amazon's digital service and it's playable for whatever that's worth. No idea about Steam.

    Expect to find an even higher resolution version on modding sites within the next few months

    The game according to Bioware has been regionally locked, so even if you have a copy from say retail and installed it you wont be able to play until the game officially launches in your region and can validate with their servers from my understanding.
