A number of weeks in the past, Capcom introduced that it could placed on a showcase for Dragon’s Dogma 2. The livestream simply wrapped up, displaying off roughly quarter-hour of latest gameplay, info, a trailer, and a launch date: March twenty second. Take a look at the video right here.
The discharge date wasn’t precisely the latest of reports. Hours earlier than the livestream started on November twenty eighth, the sport’s Steam web page by chance leaked that you just’d have the ability to dogma your dragons on March twenty first. The livestream confirmed that the precise launch date is a day later, with Dragon’s Dogma 2 sharing a launch date with considered one of my most anticipated video games of 2024, Princess Peach: Showtime! (Apparently, Steam has not but up to date the web page which nonetheless exhibits March twenty first.)
The showcase debuted a brand new class, the trickster. From its title, the trickster seems like your primary rogue class, however the trickster looks like a necromancer with additional steps. As a substitute of utilizing useless our bodies to gas a military of minions, the trickster makes use of a censer — suppose for those who turned your favourite incense holder right into a medieval flail — and conjures constructs from the smoke that may trick enemies into preventing one another. That’s some impressed class design that actually piques my curiosity into seeing extra of what Dragon’s Dogma 2 is about.
The story is one other breadcrumb I’m excited by gobbling up. There’s nothing significantly revolutionary about DD2’s story. However from the showcase, it looks like the plot will lean closely on geopolitical intrigue, which I take pleasure in.
General, Dragon’s Dogma 2 doesn’t fairly seem to be it’ll be the breakout hit of 2024. However I’m within the temper for a low-stakes, sword and board motion recreation that I can take my time with, and hopefully Dragon’s Dogma 2 will scratch that itch.
