Dragon's Dogma II showcases its first gameplay trailer

A decade after Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen introduced us to the dragon Grigori and our esteemed pawns, we finally get a proper outlook on its sequel. The PlayStation Showcase shared a gameplay trailer for Dragon's Dogma II, which seems to be doubling down on the features that made the first one great.

Granted, there wasn't a HUD on the gameplay, which sometimes can change our perspective on how a game works and feels. However, witnessing our Arisen conjuring spells while our Pawns climb over a troll shows us how awesome Dragon's Dogma II will be.



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. In Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, players had up to nine vocations, the game's classes. Each one presented unique gameplay with fresh mechanics. Pawns could also be tailored to fit your party composition.

With Capcom's advanced RE ENGINE, as seen in Monster Hunter Rise and Street Fighter 6, Dragon's Dogma II will display vividly detailed, high-fidelity graphics combined with immersive physics and complex and reactive character AI to create a setting where decisions, and their consequences, come to life. 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. 

The Dragon's Dogma's lore was interesting, but the narrative had a lackluster execution. Hopefully, this new entry will flesh out a more concise and intriguing storyline:

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.

Capcom confirmed the game will release for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC via Steam. A release date was not announced yet, but keep your eyes peeled in our comparator for cheap Dragon's Dogma 2 CD keys and prepare to fulfill your destiny, Arisen.
