Dragon Age II Gets High Resolution Texture Pack On Launch Day
Console fanbois eat your heart out! PC owners get the best deal once again, a couple of hours before the launch of Dragon Age II Bioware already offers a High Resolution Texture pack on their website.
The Texture Pack will add the option to enable higher detail replacements for most textures in game. Bioware claims a big difference will be noticed on level art especially.
The hardware requirements are obviously quite high, using the high-resolution textures requires a graphics card with at least 1024MB video memory. Most of the benefits from the Hi-resolution textures will only be seen if you are able to run the game in DirectX 11.
To manually download your new content on the PC:
1. Download the installer.
2. Run Dragon Age II.
3. Open the Options menu.
4. Select Video options.
5. Check the "Hi-resolution textures" checkbox.
We can't wait to test this as soon as the game unlocks at midnight tonight!
