DRAGON QUEST XI Patch Finally Lets You Name Your Character Robert

By Sam Quirke, 1 year ago
A new Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age patch doesn't do an awful lot on the PlayStation 4 version of the game, but it does get rid of some strange censorship; "Robert" and several other traditional English names are no longer considered banned words when naming your character.

Here's the full (and very brief) patch notes for the PlayStation 4 version of the game courtesy of Square Enix:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Multiple text bugs have been fixed.
The new patch should be available now.
