Capcom has made dreams come true with the announcement of Dragon’s Dogma 2. Whose dreams are they? My. And now I’m going to do you a favor.
Dragon’s Dogma director Hideaki Itsuno broke the news at the end of 10 years of Dragon’s Dogma live stream (opens in new tab) . The team took off their hoodies to reveal matching tees with the new Dragon’s Dogma 2 logo emblazoned on them. I’m sure I heard angels singing too, but maybe that was just my imagination.
The first game came out in 2012 and it was just great. The pawn system was amazing and I could sit here and talk about the game all day. But now you can play and watch for less than five dollars. That is so cheap now on PC and console, and you need to know what you missed – as you prepare for the sequel.
Take a cult classic for a heist
Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is the re-released version of the game that includes a ton of extra content. It has been ported to PS4 and Xbox One so you can buy it from the respective console store right now or on Steam. Check out how insane these prices are:
Dragon’s Dogma’s only downfall at the time was the lack of cooperation. The pawns are great and the system is incredibly fun. Having them go on their own adventures to get helpful tips or find someone to recruit adds a whole different level to the gameplay. But it’s not the same as playing with real humans.
That’s why it sucked when MMO Dragon’s Dogma Online got an exclusive release in Japan. But the game was shut down in 2019 due to low player count, so I wasn’t that jealous after that.
Basically, we’ve been waiting for a sequel for a decade here in the west. We had been expecting to hear news of Dragon’s Dogma 2 during the broadcast, so this announcement made my week. And the price of the original game has now made it even sweeter. For that price, I’d say just buy it. It’s less than the price of a coffee, and if you hate it, let me know on social media and I’ll tell you why you’re wrong.
