Capcom is pleased to announce that Dragon’s Dogma 2 is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC/Steam on 22nd March 2024 in Southeast Asia.

 

Story

Dragon’s Dogma is a tale of the Arisen, whose heart is taken by the Dragon. While this sequel mirrors the world setting of the first game, the adventure takes place in a parallel world.

Vermund is the human kingdom, where you will be drawn into the power struggle for the throne. To have her son take the throne, the Queen Regent Disa plots to set a false Arisen. But why are Pawns serving a false Arisen? On the other hand, the beastren nation of Batthal treats Pawns as the source of misfortune, and instead worship the Lambent Flame to ward off calamity with empress Nadinia at its center. Both kingdoms recognize the Dragon as a threat, but their thoughts towards Pawns and the Arisen differ.

What will happen to the player, caught between the beliefs and plots of these two nations?

 

New Vocation

Exclusive to the Arisen, the Trickster is a vocation that wields the Censer and uses the smoke it produces to conjure illusions.

By confusing the enemy into fighting themselves through illusions or increasing the power of Pawns beyond their normal parameters for a limited period of time, this vocation focuses on support and use of unique strategies.

The Trickster is a devious vocation that takes advantage of the enemies’ enhanced behavior AI. It is a great fit for players who prefers to step back from the action and manipulate the battle from the sidelines.

 

New Monsters

Appearing first time in the game, giant Talos emerges from the sea as seen in the showcase. Players will have to figure out how to stop Talos.

 

Character Customization

Player can freely create the Arisen and the main Pawn. The development team have used photogrammetry technology to increase photorealism, while adding a way to simplify the process of creating characters. Select the images that resembles the kind of look you have in mind provides a more intuitive way to create your ideal character.

 

Pawn Specialization

From the showcase, Sacred Arbor, an elf settlement is featured.

The elves there communicate in their own language, and while the Arisen does not understand the language of the elves, if there is a Pawn nearby who does, they will automatically translate it for you.

These “specializations” that Pawns can acquire will make each of them more unique, and hopefully more enjoyable to journey with.
