Dragon’s Dogma 2 Releases In March 2024

Capcom revealed a new trailer for Dragon’s Dogma 2, the upcoming sequel to 2013’s action-RPG as well as a release date.

The trailer is heavy on lore and tone, but it gives us a glimpse of new monsters and enemies that the Arisen and their Pawns must face.

The Dragon’s Dogma 2 Showcase divulges it bit more on gameplay details. This includes the towering Talos. The monster gives a Shadow Over The Colossus scale of battle, where the player has to make use of various ways to reach their weak spot, including clambering on them directly, use flying monsters to reach them, or attack from afar using ranged weaponry.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 is now confirmed to be set in a parallel world. Which explains the new locales but seemingly similar lore. The two kingdoms of Vermund and Battahl have different views of the Arisen and the Pawns.

The showcase also confirmed three more advanced Vocations (classes), only available to the Arisen. The Warrior and Sorcerer are back and accompanying them is the new Trickster. Tricksters fights with the Censer, a mace-like weapon that emits smoke that can conjure illusions. Tricksters specialise in illusions and tricking enemies to fight themselves, and can buff Pawns, so this is more of a support class. Curiously, the colour combination of this vocation’s crest is purple-pink. And we’re not sure at this time what two vocation that this hybrid vocation consists of. Interesting.

The showcase also showed a quest that involves the Elves, a new race in Dragon’s Dogma 2. They speak their own language, which the Arisen won’t understand unless you have a Pawn that can. So that’s one perk to keep an eye out when picking a Pawn, or building your Main Pawn. Speaking of, full character customisation is available to create your Arisen and Main Pawn.

The original Dragon’s Dogma was a bit rough around the edges, but it’s a fascinating take on an RPG. This isn’t a JRPG, but rather, a Japanese-based team’s take on Western RPG (there are interlocking systems that can be exploited in some ways), with action-based combat. The world itself takes on a harsher, darker tone of medieval fantasy.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 will release on March 22, 2024 for the PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam).

This will be the first Capcom game to be released only on the current-gen consoles (there’s no PS4 release for this one) and as such, the pricing of the game has reflected that, bumped to $70 USD. The price in MYR for Malaysia is RM328 on Steam and PlayStation Store Asia.
