Announced last June, Capcom took the wrappings off of Dragon’s Dogma II with a brand new trailer at the Sony State of Play.
Dragon’s Dogma II 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 II revolves around choice.
Initially released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2012, the first game in the series, Dragon’s Dogma eventually saw releases on the PC via Steam in 2016, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2017, and the Nintendo Switch in 2019. Dragon’s Dogma takes place in the world of Gransys, where the player, an Arisen, together with three followers embarks on a quest to face the Dragon and stop the coming apocalypse.
