Dragon’s Dogma 2 Map is 4-Times the Size of the Original, Pawns Should be Much Smarter


Dragon's Dogma 2

Last month at the big PlayStation Showcase, we got a first tantalizing look at Capcom’s anticipated action-RPG Dragon’s Dogma 2, but fans’ appetites definitely weren’t fully whet by the 80-or-so seconds of footage we got. Thankfully, today at the big Capcom Showcase we get a few more snippets of footage, and some fresh details from Dragon’s Dogma mastermind Hideaki Itsuno. Even more new info would be nice, but fans will take what they can get.

As we’ve already heard, Dragon’s Dogma 2 will feature the return of the Pawn system, in which you team up with AI-controlled partners. This time around, Itsuno promises the AI will be more intelligent, even being able to guide towards secrets. Your party can consist of a main pawn, which you’ll be able to fully customize, as well as two support pawns.

Moving onto the world of Dragon’s Dogma 2, it will be around four times the size as what you explored in the original game. Capcom is promising a more open-ended, systemic experience, with players being able to choose how to tackle challenges Dark Souls or Zelda BotW/TotK-style. It all sounds rather promising, and in keeping with what players liked about the original Dragon’s Dogma. You can check out the new presentation for yourself, below.

Itsuno also provided some more info about two of the main characters seen in the new trailer, including Ulrika “a bow-wielder with a deep connection to the Arisen,” and Nadinia “a high priestess of the Beastren, who appear in the series for the first time.”

Looks like Capcom’s streak of excellent sequels isn’t going to be broken with this one. Haven’t been keeping up with Dragon’s Dogma 2? Here’s a quick official description.

“The deep, explorable fantasy world of Dragon's Dogma. Dragon's Dogma is a single player, narrative driven action-RPG that challenges players to choose their own experience – from the appearance of their unique Arisen, their vocation, their party, how to approach different situations and more.

On your journey, you’ll be joined by Pawns, mysterious otherworldly beings, in an adventure so unique you will feel as if accompanied by other players while on your own adventure. All of these elements are elevated further by the latest in graphics, artificial intelligence (AI) and physics technology to create a truly immersive fantasy world in Dragon's Dogma 2.”

Dragon’s Dogma 2 is coming to PC, Xbox Series X/S, and PS5. Capcom has yet to announce a release window for the game.
