Gamers get a first look at Dragon’s Dogma 2 at TGS 2023

Capcom shares 9 minutes of Dragon’s Dogma 2 footage at the Tokyo Games Show

Dragon’s Dogma 2 is in development. Even without a firm release date, Capcom has showcased their upcoming RPG at the Tokyo Games Show (TGS). This RPG will be a current-generation only title, coming to PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.

To create Dragon’s Dogma 2, Capcom are utilising the company’s RE Engine. Devil May Cry 5, Monster Hunter Rise, and all recent Resident Evil games use this engine to great effect, and so far, the game looks great.

Hideali Itsuno, Dragon’s Dogma 2’s game director, dives deep into the game’s four classes and other key features of the game in Capcom’s 9-minute showcase. In the new game, players can expect a day/night cycle, expanded exploration, and a world that'[s reportedly 4 times larger than the first game.

Four starting player classes (base vocations) will be available in Dragon’s Dogma 2. Gamers can play as a Fighter, a Mage, an Archer, or a Thief. The showcase below also showcases two advanced classes/vocations, which are the Mystic Spearhand and Magick Archer.

Dragon’s Dogma is a single player, narrative driven action-RPG that challenges the players to choose their own experience – from the appearance of their 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 currently lacks an official release date, but we do know that the game’s PC version will be launching through Steam. The game has not been listed on any other PC gaming storefront.

During TGS, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is available on PC with a 84% discount on Steam. This makes the game £3.83 in the UK, which is a steal of a price for this cult classic RPG. Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen both looks and plays best on PC. On PC, Dragon’s Dogma features uncompressed assets, framerates up to 150 FPS, and can be played at higher resolutions than the game’s console versions.

You can join the discussion on Dragons Dogma 2’s TGS 2023 showcase on the OC3D Forums.
