It took an incredibly long amount of time for us to finally get here, but I'm happy to say that Dragon's Dogma 2 is nearly upon us! You can expect to see it launch onto PC and consoles on March 22nd, 2024 - nearly twelve years after the original!

Much like its predecessor, Dragon's Dogma 2 will have you make a party with up to three AI companions and set you loose to explore a gigantic world. Along the way you'll likely encounter all sorts of danger you'll need to fight in classic action-RPG combat, though with a bit of an important twist. Instead of simply hitting giant enemies in the toes and hoping that's good enough, Dragon's Dogma 2 will once again have you crawl all over them in order to annoy them, briefly incapacitate them or even bring them down so you dish out some serious damage.

What all of this looks like in action, as well as what the story might be about, that you can get a little peek at through the freshly posted trailer. Have a gander:

If all of this sounds like it's right up your alley, it's also worth mentioning that the original Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen can be grabbed fairly cheaply these days. So if there's some sort of sale currently going on, I'd highly recommend picking it up if you're in an exploratory mood since it really is a one-of-a-kind game. I won't ramble too much about it here, but if you're interested in learning about what exactly makes Dragon's Dogma so special, check out the lengthy recommendation/review I made detailing just that.
