The highly anticipated Dragon’s Dogma II will take center stage at the upcoming Capcom Showcase event. In a recent update on their official website, the publisher revealed exciting details about their annual presentation. Alongside Dragon’s Dogma II, the event will also feature Exoprimal, a team-based shooter, and Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, a puzzle-solving mystery game developed by Shu Takumi, renowned for the Ace Attorney series. Mark your calendars for June 12 at 3pm PT in the US or June 13 at 3:30am IST in India. Plus, you can catch the live stream on Capcom’s official YouTube and Twitch channels.
Earlier, during the PlayStation Showcase event, a thrilling, action-packed trailer for Dragon’s Dogma II was unveiled. While specific plot details are still scarce, a hymn on the official website hints at an Arisen, the chosen hero, embarking on a journey to defeat the Dragon confined to an underground prison and seize the throne. However, this creature is not merely seen as a mythical being but also as a symbol of the world’s destruction, even revered as a god by some. Accompanying the Arisen on this quest are enigmatic otherworldly beings known as “Pawns,” driven by artificial intelligence.
Interestingly, the Dragon’s Dogma II trailer features a character resembling Yennefer from The Witcher 3, who expresses doubt about the player’s abilities and questions the true identity of the Arisen. The game’s description highlights the freedom to “choose your own experience,” suggesting that dialogue options might convince her otherwise. The footage showcased some HUD-less gameplay, including bow-and-arrow combat that showcased arrows imbued with lightning magic, perfect for battling rock-type enemies. Playing as a sorcerer seems especially promising, with abilities to create water bridges, summon fiery meteors, and even cast an artificial sun for illumination in dark forests.
The combat mechanics in Dragon’s Dogma II bear similarities to those in Final Fantasy XVI, though with a slightly less flashy approach. Prepare to face epic foes like gryphons, orcs, and a Medusa-like enemy adorned with venomous snakes instead of hair. This game promises a thrilling fantasy adventure on a grand scale. It remains to be seen if Dragon’s Dogma II will deliver the challenging difficulty of its predecessor, released in 2012. While Dragon’s Dogma may not be Capcom’s flagship franchise, it has garnered a dedicated fanbase due to its unforgettable boss battles, now expanded to cinematic proportions. The upcoming sequel also introduces a new race called the Beastren, adding further depth to the world. Dragon’s Dogma II will be available on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series S/X.
Capcom assures fans that the 36-minute-long presentation will reveal fresh details about their upcoming releases, coinciding with the celebration of their 40th anniversary. Additionally, Steam is offering an ongoing sale with discounts of up to 87 percent on select Capcom games, so be sure to check it out. And keep an eye out for potential updates on the free VR mode for Resident Evil 4, which will be compatible with the forthcoming PS VR2.
