Capcom announced the official release date for Dragon’s Dogma 2 will be on March 22, 2024. The game was officially announced over a year ago sharing it would be developed in RE Engine. The publisher released a new trailer that was revealed during the Dragon’s Dogma 2 Showcase.
In Dragon’s Dogma 2, players experience the tale of the Arisen, a champion whose heart is stolen by the Dragon. While the sequel’s setting mirrors the lush rolling hills of the cult classic Dragon’s Dogma and its Dark Arisen expansion, this original adventure takes place in a parallel world containing two nations with distinct approaches to the Dragon threat. Queen Regent Disa has installed a false Arisen to maintain control of the kingdom of Vermund for her son. Meanwhile, the beastren nation of Battahl considers the otherworldly Pawns to be a source of misfortune and have turned to worship of the Lambent Flame and their empress Nadinia to ward off calamity. The showcase provided a look at some of the destinations that quests can lead players to, such as the reclusive elven enclave of Sacred Arbor. The elves there communicate in their own language, and Pawns capable of understanding their speech will translate for the Arisen while in your party. Pawns can also specialize in other skills, making each of their personalities more distinct.
Dragon’s Dogma 2 will come to the Xbox Series XlS, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam. The game will cost $69.99 USD when it is released.
