Dragon Quest XI receives first major post-launch patch

Today Square Enix announced a free update patch to Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age. The patch is mostly tidying up some lingering settings issues with the PC version of the game such as providing some new presets and providing some more refresh rate options. Text bugs and other crash issues have been fixed and most importantly, you can now name yourself Robert.

The full patch notes are available on Square Enix's website, and we've also copied them below:

Hey everyone,

We hope you’ve been enjoying your time in Erdrea since DRAGON QUEST XI launched a few weeks ago! Today we’ve be released a free, downloadable update for both the PlayStation 4 and Steam versions of DRAGON QUEST XI, and here are a list of improvements we’ve made to the game.

PlayStation 4

  1. We’ve identified a bug which can sometimes cause the game to crash when the player is 300m away from their horse on the field, this has been fixed.
  2. People’s names (such as “Robert”) have been removed from the list of prohibited words when selecting the main character’s name at the beginning of the game.
  3. Multiple text bugs have been fixed.

Steam

  1. We’ve identified a bug which can sometimes cause the game to crash when the player is 300m away from their horse on the field, this has been fixed.
  2. Players are now able to send log data to the DRAGON QUEST XI development team in cases where the game crashes.
  3. Players are able to choose between three (Low, Medium, High) pre-set graphic settings before launching the game (see below for details).
  4. People’s names (such as “Robert”) have been removed from the list of prohibited words when selecting the main character’s name at the beginning of the game.
  5. Multiple text bugs have been fixed.
  6. It’s now possible to move the command selection cursor using the left stick, and by extension WASD on keyboards, with very few exceptions in certain screens.
  7. It’s now possible to select which key exits the game (by default this is set to Esc) and it’s also possible to bind the Esc key to a different function.
  8. More frame rate options have been added; 90 fps, 120 fps, 144 fps as well as the option to leave the frame rate unlocked.

Finally, we’ve seen a number of questions about the in-game language in the Steam version of DRAGON QUEST XI. It’s possible to change the in-game language by changing the language setting of Steam itself.
