Capcom has announced various details for Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, including a release date.
Much like Japan, Capcom is preparing a separate release for Dark Arisen. It’ll be available at retail and through digital download. Dark Arisen features a new area, missions, enemies, and all c ontent from the original title.
According to Capcom:
“Just off the Gransys mainland is the cursed Bitterblack Isle and it is here that gamers will discover an underground realm, complete with new terrifying foes to face and incredible treasure to find as they embark on an all new quest. Owners of the original Dragon’s Dogma will be able to export their existing characters and all other saved data, to continue their journey as the Arisen and face this new threat that has emerged from the cavernous depths. Players will be able to take their characters to new heights, with brand new high-level skills and augments as well as all new weapons and armour sets. For those that missed Dragon’s Dogma the first time around, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen provides the opportunity to start their journey from the very beginning before tackling the all new content.”
The game provides a few new improvements such as as easier travel and a more intuitive menu system – all of which will be automatically retrofitted to players of the first Dragon’s Dogma.
Those who have purchased Dragon’s Dogma will earn 100,000 Rift Crystals, unlimited Ferrystones and the Gransys Armour Pack consisting of six brand new costumes.
Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is due out on April 23 in North America and April 26 in Europe. It’ll be available on the same day through PSN for $39.99 / €29.99 / £19.99, with the Games on Demand release planned for the summer.
