Capcom has announced that Dragon’s Dogma, their open-world dragon-hunting game, will be released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on May 22. And to encourage gamers to take a chance on this untested intellectual property, Capcom is bundling a download token for a Resident Evil 6 demo with the game.
Capcom also seems to be encouraging gamers to purchase Dragon’s Dogma on the Xbox 360 as the token included in that version will grant access to the demo on July 3. PS3 players will have to wait until September 4 to download the demo with their tokens.
The demo will eventually be released to the general public, but exactly when that will be is still up in the air.
As is customary nowadays, several retailer-specific pre-order bonuses will be offered for Dragon’s Dogma. Pre-ordering from GameStop will net you the Pawn Upgrade Pack, “which will give players additional Rift Crystals allowing them to rent higher level experience Pawns from the outset.” Best Buy is offering the Armor Upgrade Pack (which is pretty self-explanatory) and Amazon will have the Weapon Upgrade Pack (also rather self-explanatory).
