Hi smile

Will we get a new big Patch in 2014?

I am thinking about:
- Dual Wielding (new Skills)
- New difficultly Levels
- Game Balance
- (missing) Sound fixes
- Inventory Management

Hoping for the final 2 companions, they said there would be 6 total I think, so 2 more to go.

My guess is that new skills and difficulty levels will be out by the end of 2014. They've been emphasizing those and there's enough time (2 months) to implement them.

I do hope that there are new skills for every ability, and not just for dual wielding. There aren't enough optimal skills per school. I'm not saying every skill should be balanced, but that weaker skills are fine as long as there is in addition a wider selection of 'good'/balanced skills.

Huh. That's rather interesting as Larian has been focusing on adding rather than fixing so far. But I do think they are adding the right things... in a way, adding skills can add more balance to existing abilities. If those skills are balanced though, lol.

I believe it was mentioned that the original intention was to have 6 companions, but that was scaled back, so there are only the 4 we now have.

I would be extremely surprised if they don't release another big patch before the end of the year, and if so, it would almost certainly be before the holidays to rake in some of those Christmas sales. I'd imagine some people are waiting for the harder difficulty before buying the game, and plenty of people wait a while after a game is released to buy it to take advantage of patches. Getting a big content patch in before the holidays would be a smart marketing move. I'm imagining a patch in late November.

I hope Larian will release another BIG Patch or another DLC before "Dragon Age: Inquisition" will be released.

I think Dragon Age: Inquisition is the biggest rival for D:OS wink

Larian - Please do something and add Dual Wielding, a harder Difficultly level and fix some (Sound) bugs! wave opa

meh..dragon age inquisition will probably be fun (although as of now I'm not so thrilled about the shown pc controls) but it's apples/pears compared to D:OS imho

Not really. They are completely different kind or RPG experience.

And this is good thing. People should have more options to choose different kind of RPG experience based on what they like.
