Dragon’s Dogma Online announced for PlayStation and PC

Dragon's-Dogma

Dragon’s Dogma is one of those games that I just don’t get. It had everything going for it when I first saw it years ago. A great open world. A promising combat system. Great visuals for the time. But the end result was a cluttered, clumsy oaf of a game that had me spending most of my time throwing my companion off of cliffs. Still, the game found a fanbase, that was mostly united in their hatred for Garth and his review, spinning some more content out. And the next incarnation of the game will be going completely online.

Dragon’s Dogma Online will be hitting the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC later this year according to the latest issue of Japan’s Famitsu magazine, via Gematsu. Players will be able to join a  group of four other characters, which also includes AI-controlled pawns, and head off to go do some adventuring. It’ll be the same massive open-world gameplay from the previous games, with gigantic enemies to climb over like real estate agents on a house that is being sold privately.

And yes, it’s going to be a freemium game. In order to support Dragon’s Dogma Online, Capcom will make use of item-based microtransactions, similar to what they did previously in the iOS and PS Vita game Dragon’s Dogma Quest.

Other details from the Famitsu review with producer Minae Matsukawa and director Kent Kinoshita include:

  • Dragon’s Dogma Online could only be produced after Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen
  • A monthly fee was on the cards for the game, but Capcom decided that free-to-play would make it more accessible
  • The game will have a completely new story and no character connections to the previous games
  • The game world will expand to be roughly three times the size of its current state in future updates
  • Parties are formed in the lobby before players head out into the world
  • Characters will be balanced, but certain strengths will shine through

The game currently has a release date for sometime in 2015. And I still don’t get it.

        hows 900p 30fps games treating you ?

        I know 1440p at over 100fps is great on PC. I guess you wouldn’t know 🙂

          Hey I jam on PC 95% of the time. But of course, you assumed I didn’t, just because I happen to like a console as well? Well done. *slow clap*

            Yup I assumed you are a Xbone player seeming you love defending it so much.

            I just realized you are a Microsoft fanboy “slow clap”

            I find being a fanboy makes you short-sighted … but hey whatever … didn’t mean to offend you. I even added a smiley face.

    Dogma was a fun if frowned upon movie. I think this game will be the same. Speaking of Capcom what ever happened to Deep Down?

        So you either get 1080p with 15fos or you can get 60fps with 720p?

    Nice header!

    and the game was not too bad, but then again I played the polished game of the year edition on the Xbox. Maybe that made it a bit better. Not a great game either.
