Dragons Dogma 2 saw its first trailer at the 2023 PlayStation Showcase, and it’s progressing considerably faster than predicted. Although no release date was given, a variety of gameplay was displayed for fans to examine. Dragons Dogma 2 will most likely take some time to release, and it should receive graphic enhancements and additional features as time goes on, but it appears to have the basic basics of the first Dragons Dogma down.
That fairly accurately represents Dragon’s Dogma 2 expectations. Dragon’s Dogma was an ambitious game with unexpectedly sophisticated features, as well as a strong postgame and New Game Plus cycle. Even after its enlargement, though, the game was not what it was intended to be. Large sections of Dragon’s Dogma were removed, including ideas that went beyond the great fantasy scenarios that organically arose in-game.
Dragons Dogma 2 resembles what its predecessor was always meant to be, all while maintaining the epic scale of the original.
Players may not yet have a complete image of the universe, but Dragons Dogma 2 will be massive. The first game was already vast and even went so far as to revamp parts of its map once the main objective was completed. It’s difficult to determine whether Dragon’s Dogma 2 will retell enough of the first game’s story to warrant a sequel, but it’s possible.
The teaser for Dragon’s Dogma 2 also introduces cat folk similar to The Elder Scrolls’ Khajiit. The addition of new races to the human-centric scenario hints that the Arisen will travel to many more diverse locations than the caverns, forests, and ruins they originally visited.
Including multiplayer in Dragons Dogma 2 may seem blasphemous to die-hard fans of the previous game. The entire idea of Pawns is to offer the player a dynamic party, emulating the process of playing a tabletop RPG in a group.
In Dragon’s Dogma, players had far more power over Pawns than they realized, allowing them to train them for a variety of tasks and gather a wealth of information about foes. They were also the multiplayer system since users could share them online and benefit from their Pawn being used. True co-op may devalue this mechanic.
Cooperative gaming would assist Dragon’s Dogma 2 in being the game that the original could have been if not for hardware and schedule constraints. In its complex fantasy environment, a group of people might spend hours role-playing, trekking, battling, and having fun together. Meanwhile, the Pawn system would remain in place, with its own set of gameplay and narrative perks, for those who prefer to travel alone with a party tailored to them.
