TV and film actor Ian McShane has lent his voice to a comprehensive overview trailer for Dragon's Dogma 2 ahead of its PS5 launch next week. Clocking in at just shy of eight minutes, the Deadwood star introduces you to the sequel's story, world, the pawns you can recruit, and the monsters you'll face throughout your journey. Check it out above.

As McShane explains, a dragon selects a challenger by claiming their heart from their body and having them rise as the Arisen. With this mark on your custom character, you'll need to put a crew together and become powerful enough to slay the beast once and for all. Along the way, you'll meet a variety of unique bosses to take down, utilising different classes and a deep combat system. The game releases on the same day as PS5 exclusive Rise of the Ronin: 22nd March 2024.

Has McShane's voiceover got you even more excited for next Friday? Let us know in the comments below.
