Achievements are now obtainable for Exiled Prince.

Just go into your system memory and delete the Exiled Prince DLC, then redownload it. This will allow you to get the achievements.

I just got Retribution for completing the Duty quest.

This is not retroactive either, meaning that you will have to obtain all the achievements, even if you should have gotten them already.

Great news! I'm glad it didn't take months and months to fix this =)

Disappointing that they expect people to replay through the DLC, as it takes place across all 3 acts.

I just beat DAII and have no desire to replay it even for these achievements... it was kinda... boring.

I agree, and glad I waited to do it till they fixed them. Although I'll be honest I was not impressed with this game and skipped all the cutscenes for this DLC guy haha..

I just wanted it to be over.

I was able to load up my Act 3 and do the final quest for him (without ever having even bought the DLC prior), and then load up my Act 2 save and do every other one he had, which was nice. The guide made it sound like I would be out of luck if I hadn't done prior companion quests but it was wrong.

I wish I had had the foresight to take Bioware's DLC incompetence into consideration and save before Sebastian stuff along the way.

Generally all you have to do is look through your save files and look for ones that have his companion quests available

I had 10+ save files... but most from Act III and end of Act II. It is a good idea to keep a save file at the beginning of each Act of most games though...

Did you check? if so sorry to hear that you have to go through another playthrough, then again what playthrough are you on?(i.e 1st, 2nd)

Awesome, now I can start my 2nd playthrough, and quite thrilled to do so.

edit: I can confirm the above method works, just unlocked retribution for completing the quest 'Duty' aswell.

I have a save right before every achievement would pop. I set that up on my second play-thru. 1130 here I come.


edit: Since I'm at work and can't do it till later... Does the friendship/rivalry achievement pop when it goes to 100% one way or the other? or around the time when they get their special ability?

So, if I haven't bought it yet but buy it today it'll work right? In other words, the achievements will naturally unlock I don't have to go to system memory right? :confused:

so you definitely have to delete and redownload the dlc? no way around that? thx in advance =)

I can confirm that. I loaded my game, started and finished the first quest "Duty" and nothing. Dashboarded out, deleted the dlc, redownloaded it, loaded up the auto-save in the Chantry and turned the quest in. Ding, achievement unlocked.

Taken directly from Chris Priestly(Bioware);

Hi Everyone

Microsoft has posted a new version of “The Exiled Prince DLC” to the 360 Marketplace and we’re encouraging all “The Exiled Prince DLC” owners to redownload the content.

The new version should allow the 5 DLC achievements to properly unlock in future playthroughs of the “The Exiled Prince DLC” content. Customers who have previously completed this content will need to replay the content, either via a new game, or by using an save made prior to getting any achievements from this content.

Here is the steps users need to undertake to update their copy of The Exiled Prince DLC

Uninstalling Old Data:
1. Starting on the Xbox 360 dashboard, go to ‘System Settings’, located on the far, right end of the ‘My Xbox’ section.
2. Choose ‘Memory’.
3. Select the memory device on which the DLC is installed.
4. Choose ‘Games’.
5. Choose ‘Dragon Age II’.
6. Scroll down and choose ‘The Exiled Prince’ Marketplace Content.
7. Select ‘Delete’, then ‘Yes’ to confirm the action.

Installing New Data
1. Press the Xbox Guide button.
2. Scroll right to ‘Settings’ and choose ‘Account Management’, choose ‘Yes’ to confirm.
3. Choose ‘Download History’.
4. Choose ‘The Exiled Prince’ game add-on.
5. Select ‘Download Again’.

If after you have followed each step above, and replayed The Exiled Prince DLC and this still does not fix the achievement unlock issue for you, please let us know below.

Does the signature edition come with the content on the disk or does it come with a download code?

Every post I have seen by you involves bitching of some sort. Gay can be used in many different ways, but it is not used to defined inanimate objects such as achievements.

Straight from the dictionary for your future refrence:

1. having or showing a merry, lively mood: gay spirits; gay music.
2. bright or showy: gay colors; gay ornaments.
3. given to or abounding in social or other pleasures: a gay social season.
4. licentious; dissipated; wanton: The baron is a gay old rogue with an eye for the ladies.
5. homosexual.
6. of, indicating, or supporting homosexual interests or issues: a gay organization.
-noun
7. a homosexual person, especially a male.
-adverb
8. in a gay manner.

Worked perfectly for me.. Luckily i don't have to play any differantly to get the achievments only just started my second playthrough.

Redownloading it now, once its done I'm gonna play some MW2 with a friend for a laugh and then I'll go back to DA2, I started two other playthroughs the other day at least so I can make a start on his quests easier than having to start a new game altogether.

Thank you FSparacino4, I love the fact that you set that guy straight. People don't realize just how offensive they are being by using the work gay in that sense. I enjoy your posts more every time I see them.

If Bioware made these achievements to work properly to begin with, then I wouldn't of had to do an third run through of the game. I am currently finishing up my second run now and I only started a third just to get the "Mass Exodus" achievement. So now it looks as if to get the all of the Exiled Prince achievements, I'll have to finish up that third run after all. Very disappointed because I should've had all of those achievements in my first go of the game to begin with if Bioware hadn't screwed up to begin with. :rant:

You must delete the dlc and then redownload it to gain achievements. After doing this, old saves can be used to get the achievements. I tried it both ways with the same save and it only worked after delete/redownload. At least they fixed the issue.:)

YAAAAY! But it shouldn't have come to this in the first place. Bioware has always been on top of their games (pun intended). I've become sorely disappointed with them recently. But it does seem like a trend nowadays doesn't it? Every time you buy a "new" game it feels more like you're paying to play the beta version. Just look at Crysis 2.

I can't believe this crap.......I've already done and gotten 3 of the 5 Sebastian achievements. Do the Duty quest, find out his families murderer, and give him his bow. At least I can get the 100% friend/rival and talk to the agent of the Divine ones now.

Or because I started the save pre-glitch that they won't work at all.

Just checked with an alternate save file to get the Duty quest one........it doesn't work HURRAYY

If they are unlocked on bioware's social site, why not connect them to get it without having to go through the game again? I'm already replaying it in act 1... but after I did sebastian's first quest! DAMN IT!

EDIT: I got some of the achievements from an old save point. Loyalty, memento and avenged... now for the other 2.

I'd say somethings in life aren't that easy, I know it sucks but it's not so much laborious to do everything again if you have the proper saves

Don't get me wrong: I WAS REPLAYING THE GAME... It's just that I'll have to start yet again for hus first quest achievement. I'm still missing the romance and mage hunter ones. Romance also pissed me off: just cuz I told Isabella in Act II I was in it for the sex I didn't get it! That was also bullmore!

You understand that a romance would mean that it isn't just sex... that's the whole point.

No I don't. Never dated anyone :S
It's my sad life. On the other hand, I just got all achievements.
On the other I had my heart torn out yet again past Sunday... Why are all the girls I'm attracted to already dating someone... and I really liked this one. :(

Don't be so gloom, you'll find someone for you. There is always a person out there waiting for you to find them. The thing is you just haven't found that person.

Game is amazing other than the few handfuls of glitches

No there hasn't been a title update for DA II, you must delete Exiled Prince off your HDD. After which redownload the Exiled Prince, the update is done through not a title update, but a updated version of the DLC, at no expense whatsoever.

If you don't have the DLC is it possible to get 100% completion through the achievements? I note that some listed in my game even without Exiled Prince are still in my achievement list.
