Dragon’s Dogma was first released in 2012 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. While the action RPG’s narrative was called lackluster, the game was praised for its gameplay and the Pawn system. An extended version called Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen was released the following year with a bunch of technical improvements and contained additional dungeons, weapons, armor, and more.
With Dragon’s Dogma II, the developers will bring gameplay fit for today’s standards. The platforms haven’t been confirmed but we can expect the game to launch on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, and PC. Inclusion of features like faster load times, 3D Audio, and different modes prioritising performance and frame rates are also likely.
