  • Review Dragon's Dogma (PlayStation 3)

    Hot stuff

    You have to hand it to Capcom: it's releasing Dragon's Dogma at just the right time. Six months after The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and ahead of the traditional summer drought, it has the PS3 adventure landscape all to itself. Thankfully it's got quality as well as good timing. In development for three years with a supposedly enormous...

Dragon's Dogma News

  • News Dragon's Dogma Is Ten Years Old Today

    Anniversary, Arisen!

    Ten years ago today (that's the 22nd May, in case you're reading this in the future), Capcom released Dragon's Dogma on PS3. It was a dark fantasy action RPG that perhaps wouldn't get the praise that it deserved until years later, by which time it had established itself as something of a cult classic. Indeed, its original...

  • News Capcom Resurrects Dragon's Dogma with Major Expansion


    Dragon’s Dogma was a pretty big success for Capcom in Japan, so it’s perhaps unsurprising that it has lined up a major expansion for release next year. The pack – dubbed Dark Arisen – will allow players to carry over their save data from the original game. And that, unfortunately, is pretty much everything we know. In the meantime,...

  • News Easy Mode Swoops into Dragon's Dogma

    Dragon tamer

    Been having a bit of trouble with Dragon's Dogma? Are those direwolves proving a little too vicious? If so, don't worry — Capcom is releasing a patch that adds in an easier difficulty setting. On 6th August — in Japan at least — a title update will drop an easy mode into the options menu. It'll be accessible at any time, so don't...

  • News Dragon's Dogma Sells Over 1 Million Units

    Decent scales

    The Dragon’s Dogma brand has really taken off for Capcom – selling over 1 million units since its release in May, and propelling the Japanese publisher into profitability. The company’s profits increased by almost 300 per cent in Q2, raking in a whopping ¥1.3 billion ($17 million). It cited a “recovery trend” in the video...

  • News Japanese Sales Charts: Dragon's Dogma Takes Off

    Flying start

    Dragon’s Dogma got off to a roaring start in Japan, selling a whopping 302,040 units during its first week on sale. The impressive numbers make it the fastest selling new IP of the generation in the region. Sadly, the title did nothing to increase the PS3’s hardware sales. Sony’s home system mustered just 14k units, a minor...

  • News Dragon's Dogma Fires Up Online Quests

    Ur it

    Capcom's upcoming Dragon's Dogma is a solo-only experience, but that doesn't mean it hasn't got intriguing online capabilities too. The publisher just revealed online quests for multiple players, the first featuring a fearsome Ur-Dragon. Essentially multiple players and their parties can tackle the giant beast asynchronously, their attacks...

  • News Dragon's Dogma Demo to Spread Its Wings Next Week

    Feel the heat

    Is Capcom’s mysterious open-world RPG the sleeper hit of 2012 like our Dragon’s Dogma preview pondered earlier today? You’ll be able to formulate your own opinion next week, when a downloadable demo for the fantasy title launches on the PlayStation Store. Due for release on 24th April (and a day later in Europe), the demo will...

  • Preview Dragon's Dogma - The Sleeper Hit of 2012?

    It's got scale

    You'd think there'd be more excitement for Dragon's Dogma. Headed by staff responsible for Devil May Cry and Resident Evil, and with interest in RPGs at an all-time high thanks to Skyrim, the upcoming action RPG has generated very little heat in the past year: the game's official Twitter account has around 700 followers, and if not...

  • News It's Raining Phantoms and Ogres in Dragon's Dogma Trailer

    Beats cats and dogs anyway

    Capcom's next big release, Dragon's Dogma, is an action RPG set in a fantasy land. You know what that means? Ogres. Not just ogres, but phantoms, archers, magic, warriors, wizards and warlocks. You'll get your fill of all these things in the new trailer below, revealed at Captivate 2012, which shows off the game's AI...

  • News Take Three Dragon's Dogma Pre-Order Packs into Battle

    All with one pre-order

    Capcom's big money blockbuster Dragon's Dogma is starting to rise over the horizon, and the publisher is hoping to entice you into a pre-order with some extra upgrades when you put down money at Blockbuster or ShopTo. UK customers can take home three extra upgrade packs from the retailers designed to give them a leg-up on the...

About The Game

Dragon’s Dogma is an exciting new franchise which redefines the action genre from the team that produced some of Capcom’s greatest action games.

Set in a huge open world, Dragon’s Dogma offers an exhilarating and fulfilling action combat game with the freedom to explore and interact in a rich, living and breathing world.

Dragon’s Dogma introduces an innovative team system to the genre. Known as Pawns, these three AI partners fight independently, demonstrating prowess and ability they have developed based on traits learned over time from the player and their actions. By utilizing Xbox LIVE or PlayStation Network players will journey to the Rift where they can share their own Pawns with friends and be rewarded with treasure, knowledge of the world and strategies for taking down enemies. Conversely, players can borrow friends’ Pawns with the specific skills or experience required to tackle a particular quest. In addition, Dragon’s Dogma will ship with thousands of readymade Pawns for players to select offline.

With an epic story and incredible action, Dragon’s Dogma is set to be one of Capcom’s newest hit franchises.

Resident Evil 6 demo – Dragon’s Dogma will ship with a redeemable token allowing purchasers early access to the Resident Evil 6 demo.

Highly Stylised Action Combat – The creators of this game were responsible for the action hits – Resident Evil 4 and Devil May Cry 4.

Fight With Ability – The soul of combat comes down to how the game is played, where you strike the enemy, and how you react to their attacks.

Pawn Them All – The pawn system offers flexible combat assistance with a main pawn companion that you can train throughout the game and two secondary pawns that can vary wildly to fit your combat style.

Help Your Friends, Help Yourself: To enhance your battle experience, share your main pawn with friends and others via Xbox LIVE or PlayStation Network. Your pawn’s experience as a member of someone else’s game will be passed on to you in loot, knowledge of the open world and strategies for taking down enemies. Or, you can choose one of the thousands of AI pawns included with the game.

Accessible Depth – Bringing an unprecedented level of depth to the action genre, every decision has an effect on gameplay in an intuitive way that does not require micromanagement. The weight of your weapon, the material of your armor – even the length of your legs – plays a role in how you fight your battles, but does not interrupt the flow of the action.

Epic Adventure – Dragon’s Dogma is built from the ground up as an action experience for consoles with a continuous, epic storyline that stands alone in style, scope and substance.

Open World – Utilizing Capcom’s proprietary MT Framework engine and the groundbreaking graphical styles and lighting effects used in Resident Evil 5 and Lost Planet 2, Dragon’s Dogma expands the environment to create a vast, richly detailed world, ripe for exploration.

Night and Day – The open world features a dynamic 24-hour day/night cycle that will offer different enemies and surprises depending on when you venture into the world.

A Rich Population – In addition to interacting with hundreds of fully voiced NPCs, you’ll be able to fight a large variety of creatures, from goblins to griffins and dragons. Each enemy requires a different strategy and provides a unique experience.
