The phrase free-to-play may have prompted you to turn your nose up at Dragon's Dogma Online, but the forthcoming PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 role-playing game looks every inch the co-operative series successor that you've been waiting for. In this brand new trailer, you'll see groups of four warriors taking on increasingly large enemies – many of which breathe fire.
It looks like most of the gameplay hooks from the original release have made the transition, with the Shadow of the Colossus-esque grapple mechanic glimpsed on various occasions. As an MMO, there'll be lobbies for you to congregate in – it's all looking extremely Phantasy Star Online 2. That's a good thing by the way.
In fact, the only downside is that, much like SEGA's seminal sequel, Capcom is refusing to commit to a Western release. A trademark was registered in Europe late last year, so we'll be praying to the dragons that it swoops over to our shores eventually. In the meantime, you're just going to have to lust over the video embedded below – and keep pestering the publisher on Twitter. Sometimes it works.

This game kinda reminds me of FF14. Sweeet!^-^
The towns remind me of lineage 2(lineage 2 also has the best looking armor in any mmo)..you guys think it's ps4 or pc in trailer?
Pretty sure people were asking for Dragon's Dogma 2, rather than a F2P co-op based successor.
@Punished_Boss_84 This is what a Dragon's Dogma 2 would look like to me, though. I mean, we'll see how seedy the microtransaction underbelly is first, of course...
Buy our best value booster pack for just $99...
I really like the original, but for some reason I didn't complete it...I think I played like 3 hours or such! I didn't like the fact that quests locked out...
@get2sammyb loved dragons dogma but it was crying out for co-op mode..i was thinking the same thing as you,DDO is what I would have wanted from dragons dogma 2, more of the same but bigger and with a co-op mode.Lets just hope that any in game items are available through playing the game,and that any microtransactions are there just for convenience or to pay for purely cosmetic items.
Lol..thinking back to the first deep down trailers I always thought that would be renamed dragons dogma 2..
I got got my hopes up for a few seconds looking at that main pic i.e i thought it was a 4 player split-screen mode game Wish most games you could play split-screen in 2 or 3 or 4 player story modes(if you haven't got 3/2/1 local friends at the time the other players could be from online) Oh well.
I'll just pretend you didn't just say that.
DD was a great game killed by lack of fast travel. In the end I just got bored having to walk so far all the time between quests. The F2P space is a touch one. We'll see.
Oh this game hits all the right spots for me! Co-op monster hunter Rpg awesome graphics FFARR type world. And it's free?! Christmas is coming early!
This looks good, fingers crossed it comes to UK 😋
