New Dragon Quest XI patch adds 90fps/120fps/144fps framerate options, brings keyboard improvements

Square Enix has released a brand new patch for DRAGON QUEST XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age. This patch adds more framerate options (90fps, 120fps and 144fps) as well as the option to leave the frame rate unlocked. Moreover, it adds three (Low, Medium, High) pre-set graphic settings to choose from.

Perhaps the most important new featured, though, is the control improvement that Square Enix has implemented. Thanks to this patch, 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. As such, we won’t have to use the directional keys in order to navigate these screens.

This patch also makes it 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, and fixes a crash that could occur when the player is 300m away from their horse on the field.

As always, Steam will download this patch the next time you launch its client and you can find its complete changelog below.
