Dragon’s Dogma 2: Unveiling Release Date, Trailers, Gameplay, and More Updates

In an era where sequels to beloved games are more anticipated than ever, Capcom's announcement of Dragon's Dogma 2 has ignited excitement across the gaming community. The original Dragon's Dogma, released in 2012, carved a niche for itself with its ambitious mechanics and dark fantasy RPG elements, despite facing stiff competition. Its unique blend of action-packed gameplay, a vast open world, and an innovative "Pawn" system set it apart, though it never quite reached mainstream success.

Years after the original game's release, and with the series' creator moving on to other projects, fans were left wondering if a sequel would ever see the light of day. The announcement of Dragon's Dogma 2 not only confirms Capcom's commitment to this cult classic but also promises to expand upon the original's foundations in exciting new ways.

Release Date and Platforms

Capcom has officially confirmed that Dragon's Dogma 2 will be released on March 22, 2024. The game is set to launch on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam, ensuring that a wide audience will have access to this highly anticipated sequel.

Trailers and Announcements

The sequel's reveal was uniquely made during a special 10th-anniversary video for the first game, hosted by Itsuno, the game's director. In a heartfelt message, Itsuno thanked fans for their support and shared insights into the original game's development. The announcement of Dragon's Dogma 2 was subtly made through T-shirts worn by the team, stating, "Sorry to keep you waiting. Dragon’s Dogma 2 is currently in development!"

Following this unconventional reveal, Capcom released the first official trailer in May 2023, offering fans a glimpse into the game's world, characters, and gameplay. Further details were unveiled in the Dragon’s Dogma 2 Showcase 2023, highlighting the game's expansive world filled with NPCs, quests, and mythical creatures. The showcase also teased the game's complex main plot, involving politics, kingdoms, and dragons, though specifics remain shrouded in mystery.

Gameplay Innovations

Dragon’s Dogma 2 is being developed on the RE Engine, known for powering titles like the recent Resident Evil games and Street Fighter 6. This promises enhanced graphics and fluid gameplay mechanics. The sequel aims to retain the original's beloved features, such as the ability to climb and battle massive monsters, while introducing new elements like destructible environments and advanced magic and combat systems.

Early previews have highlighted additional features, including new ways Pawns can assist the player and the introduction of unique vocations like the Trickster and Warfarer, offering fresh strategic depth to combat.

Multiplayer Aspects

While the original game featured an asynchronous multiplayer system through the Pawn system, there's speculation that Dragon’s Dogma 2 could introduce more direct multiplayer elements. Whether this will extend to full co-op gameplay remains to be seen, but fans are excited.

Preorders for Dragon’s Dogma 2 are already available, with two editions on offer: the Standard Edition at $70, which includes the game and the Superior Weapons Quartet, and the Deluxe Edition at $80, which adds several in-game items and bonuses, enhancing the gameplay experience.


Dragon’s Dogma 2 stands as one of the most anticipated sequels in the realm of action RPGs. With its confirmed release date, intriguing trailers, and promising gameplay innovations, Capcom is set to deliver a game that not only satisfies long-time fans but also attracts new players to the franchise. As we approach its launch, the excitement and speculation will only grow, promising a return to the rich, dark fantasy world many eagerly await.
