Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen

  • Released on Jan 15, 2016
  • By Capcom for PC, PS3, Xbox 360


[edit] Background

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is the next exciting chapter in the Dragon’s Dogma franchise delivering a huge brand new area, quests, enemies and more, plus all of the content from the original game.

Dark Arisen is an expansion pack for Dragon's Dogma which introduces a large new area, Bitterblack Isle, and many new foes to battle including goblins, cyclopes and even Death itself!

[edit] Game Play

Dragon’s Dogma redefined the Action-RPG genre with exhilarating skill-based combat and free exploration of a rich environment. Introducing an innovative team dynamic called the Pawn system, a fully customizable main Pawn companion accompanies the Arisen throughout their journey. Two further support Pawns can be swapped out based on the player’s needs. Players recruit Pawns by venturing into the Rift, a space between worlds which can be accessed either offline or online. Playing online, those using Xbox LIVE or PlayStation Network, can rent out their main Pawn companion to friends as temporary secondary Pawns in those parties.

In addition to the content contained with the original Dragon’s Dogma, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen introduces Bitterblack Isle. Home to a massive underground realm and new storyline for players to unravel, Bitterblack Isle is a cursed territory teeming with incredible treasure and terrifying new foes, each requiring unique strategies to defeat. Travel to-and-from Bitterblack Isle as well as around the mainland, Gransys, is more accessible by means of an improved travel system and more frequent Portcrystals. Players will be able to take their characters to new heights with brand new high-level skills and augments, as well over 100 additional weapons and armor sets.

Owners of the original Dragon’s Dogma will be able to export their existing characters and all other saved data to continue their journey as the Arisen. Furthermore, owners of the original Dragon’s Dogma will receive 100,000 Rift Crystals, an Eternal Ferrystone and the Gransys Armor Pack consisting of six brand new costumes for free, upon purchasing Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen.
