Dragon’s Dogma 2 gameplay details
Dragon’s Dogma 2 Director Hideaki Itsuno showcased a deeper look at combat, Pawns, and gameplay systems in the upcoming action-RPG. The vocations players choose shape how they deal with enemies through dynamic combat situations throughout the game. AI-controlled Pawns return from the original Dragon’s Dogma and they will join accompany players throughout their journey to form a party of up to four characters. Players can also personalize their main Pawn, who can in turn be recruited by other players’ Arisen to borrow their skills and knowledge. What Pawns learn through these experiences will be reflected in their behavior, making them worthy player companions.
Dragon’s Dogma 2 has a world map about four times the size of the original Dragon’s Dogma that is densely populated with enemies, events, and locations. The environment is complemented by immersive physics and character AI that brings Pawns, monsters, and NPCs to life. Pawns organically guide players to new locations, dynamically cooperate during battle, and even react to special moments such as celebrating narrow victories with high-fives. Monsters new and old encourage players to devise numerous strategies to succeed in combat, or even avoid it all together. NPCs, such as the bow-wielding Ulrika who has a deep connection to the Arisen, or the high priestess of the beastren Nadinia, will form intricate relationships with the Arisen that set the stage for nuanced story moments. Dragon’s Dogma 2 is in development for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
