games. Set in a huge open world, Dragon’s Dogma offers an exhilarating and fulfilling action combat game with the freedom to explore and interact
in a rich, living and breathing world. Alongside your party of three, you set out to track down and destroy a mysterious dragon.

Your teammates fight independently of you, demonstrating prowess and ability they have developed based on traits learned over time from you and
your actions. Dragon’s Dogma offers a near endless opportunity to help develop partner characters to fight alongside you. With an epic story and
incredible action, Dragon’s Dogma is set to be one of Capcom’s newest hit franchises.

you strike the enemy, and how you react to their attacks.

every decision has an effect on gameplay in an intuitive way that does not require
micromanagement. The weight of your weapon, the material of your armor – even the
length of your legs – plays a role in how you fight your battles, but does not interrupt the flow of the action.

detailed world, ripe for exploration.
