At Capcom’s Captivate event last week, a new IP for high definition consoles was announced: Dragon’s Dogma. Players explore this open-world fantasy setting and take down various beasts. While Capcom conceded a similarity to Monster Hunter, the team differentiated the title by saying this will have an overarching story. The player is accompanied by three party members, ‘Pawns’ who you can issue orders to, but an undefined multiplayer mode has been confirmed to be in the cards.
Dragon’s Dogma is scheduled to come out early next year and you can get extended impressions over at the PlayStation Blog or from Capcom themselves right here:
From the creators behind some of Capcom’s best action games, including the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 4 and Devil May Cry 4, comes their next opus, Dragon’s Dogma. Set in a huge open world, Dragon’s Dogma is a unique action experience that blends exciting and fulfilling combat with the freedom to explore and interact in a rich, living and breathing world. With your party of three you set out on an epic adventure to track down and destroy a mysterious dragon. Along the way you’ll encounter some of the biggest and baddest beasts ever to roam the land, and only skilful play and tactical teamwork can save the day.
