Dragon’s Dogma 2 Reveals New Story Trailer & Gameplay; Pre-Orders Available

Capcom has posted a roughly 15-minute showcase for their upcoming action RPG Dragon’s Dogma 2, featuring a new trailer, gameplay footage, and commentary from director Hideaki Itsuno and producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi.

The development team is currently performing the final adjustments on the game before its release next year.

Gameplay choice, character customization, quest types, and various environments are showcased, including the Sacred Arbor, an elf settlement where its people communicate in a different tongue. However, certain Pawns can translate their language.

Photogrammetry technology has increased photorealism alongside simplification for the character creation process.

The Trickster Vocation was also introduced.

Trickster Vocation – Exclusive to Arisen. Wields Censer to conjure illusions, which confuse enemies. It can temporarily empower Pawns, too.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 opens in a subterranean jail, where the Arisen are set on a path to slay the Dragon, which is a symbol of the world’s destruction. A hero will rise to fulfill their destiny and claim the throne of the human. 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. The adventure occurs in a parallel world of the first game.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 is a single-player experience within the action RPG genre. Players will set out and craft their own experience using skill, Pawns, or clever solutions to quests. There are multiple ways to approach this adventure.

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.

More of the lore was also detailed, quoted below:

“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.”

Pre-orders are available today on all platforms for $69.99.
