Dragon’s Dogma 2 was announced at the start of the “Dragon’s Dogma 10th Anniversary” celebration, and this new trailer provides fans with the first look at the richly detailed and deeply explorable fantasy world created using immersive physics, character AI and the latest in graphics from Capcom’s RE ENGINE. The trailer also introduced some of the key characters the Arisen will encounter as they forge their destiny. Dragon’s Dogma 2 is now in development for the PlayStation®5 (PS5™) console, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. Street Fighter 6 drops on June 2, 2023 across PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam, and the Resident Evil 4 VR Mode free DLC is coming exclusively to PlayStation VR 2 for PlayStation 5.
Ascend, Arisen, and Slay the Dragon in Dragon’s Dogma 2
Dragon’s Dogma 2 begins in a subterranean jail, where the Dragon’s voice echoes in the fog of lost memories. With their heart taken by the Dragon, the Arisen is set on a path to slay that symbol of the world’s destruction as it soars through the sky on massive wings, breathing flames that scorch everything in its path. Betwixt the domains of humans and the newly introduced beastren race, a hero must fulfill their forgotten destiny, and claim the throne. Up to three mysterious otherworldly beings, known as Pawns, accompany the Arisen throughout their journey. Pawns create the feeling of a cooperative gameplay experience by offering unique characteristics, skills, and knowledge gained from their experiences with other Arisen.
This single player narrative driven action-RPG challenges players to use their creativity and curiosity to shape their own experience. Whether it is your Arisen’s vocation, the Pawns selected for your party, or your approach to multi-faceted gameplay situations, the world of Dragon’s Dogma 2 revolves around choice. Capcom’s advanced RE ENGINE produces vividly detailed, high fidelity graphics combined with immersive physics and complex and reactive character AI to create a setting where decisions, and their consequences, come to life. Both your party of Pawns and enemies alike will react dynamically to your actions on the battlefield, whether you cling to the backs of monsters or seek to dispatch them from afar. Your vocation allows you to choose your playstyle, and whether you will use swords, bows, or potent magick to bring your foes to heel. With the Arisen’s future veiled in mystery, what challenges and triumphs await on the path to their destiny?
