In what is, in my humble opinion, one of life’s greatest tragedies, Capcom director Hideaki Itsuno has said he was given the opportunity to create Dragon’s Dogma 2 but instead settled on Devil May Cry 5.
In a gaming landscape filled with the likes of The Witcher and Dark Souls, it would seem implausible that an open world hack and slash style RPG would find a viable market, but here is Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen still accruing widely positive praise four years after its original release. With the arrival of the PC port last month we put the game through its paces on different graphical settings to see how well it matched up against its competitors using an MSI Radeon R9 380 2gb, Intel i7-5820K processer and 16GB of RAM.
Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen isn’t out on PC until tomorrow, but that hasn’t stopped a graphics mod already being released for it. The ever-popular ENB series graphics mod is out, and it’s made swift work providing some startlingly good looking screenshots of the ageing last-generation RPG.
Those console mites have been plodding around in Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen's world for years now, but at last Capcom has seen the light and decided to bring it over to PC. It's become somewhat of a cult classic in the ensuring years, with a very Japanese take on western RPGs, which is something to wrap your head around.
Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, one of the finest console RPGs yet to grace the shores of PC land, is set to arrive in January, all HD-ified and no doubt packing in mountains of post-launch DLC and assorted gubbins. Since landing on PS3 and Xbox 360 back in 2012, it’s become something of a cult favourite. I guess the easiest way to imagine how Capcom’s action-RPG plays is to think of it exactly how it is - a Japanese RPG inspired by Western role-playing. Final Fantasy by way of The Elder Scrolls.
It might be nearly four years late to the party, but Capcom has announced Dragon’s Dogma will be coming to PC early next year. The Japanese action role-playing game became a bit of a cult hit on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 back in 2012, but it looked as if a PC port would never happen, until this surprise reveal from Capcom.
Capcom has revealed the world’s first trailer for Dragon’s Dogma Online, a multiplayer sequel of sorts to the original Dragon’s Dogma, which was console exclusive. Dragon’s Dogma Online is an action MMORPG set within a giant fantasy world, where you and your fellow players can go out on hunts to bring down towering monsters.
