New Dragon’s Dogma 2 Gameplay Video Focuses on Pawns

Still has no release date.

CAPCOM has recently revealed the new Dragon’s Dogma 2 gameplay video which is now focused on the AI controlled Pawns.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 Pawns Got Improved

During the Summer Game Fest main showcase, a new trailer was revealed showcasing some new gameplay of Dragon’s Dogma 2. Today, at the CAPCOM Showcase, the latest gameplay video focused more on the Pawns, which are controlled by AI. These are companions controlled by the computer that will make the single-player game feel more like a co-op experience. It was also confirmed that this would be a single-player game only.

Variety of Pawns

There will be two different variants of the Pawn. The Main Pawn is the player’s (Arisen) summoned Pawn in the game. These AI companions will be the ones to help players out throughout the game until the end of the playthrough. There are Support Pawns though, which are Pawns from other players that they have summoned in their own worlds. The Arisen can summon them but they will be temporary companions only. Up to two Support Pawns can be summoned, which will make a full party of four members.

Game Size Confirmed

Aside from the AI companions, Director Hideaki Itsuno confirmed that the game will be roughly four times the original game’s size, introducing more monsters, including familiar and new ones like the Medusa. This is all thanks to CAPCOM’s RE Engine, which offers a better variety of foliage, improved visuals, and more.

Still No Release Date

Unfortunately, CAPCOM still has NOT revealed or even hinted a release window for Dragon’s Dogma 2. It is possible that the game is still in early development. It will be available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
