Dragon’s Dogma 2: Release Date, Platforms, Trailers, Gameplay, and More

Among the many sequels that have revitalized venerable gaming franchises, Dragon’s Dogma 2 stands out as a true treasure for its devoted fanbase. Capcom recently announced a sequel, bringing the series back from the brink of oblivion after the original game’s 2012 release and subsequent re-release. With everyone’s excitement building, let’s take a look at what we know so far about Dragon’s Dogma 2.

Release Date

The official release date of Dragon’s Dogma 2, as confirmed by Capcom, is March 22, 2024. Fans who have been waiting patiently for the sequel were ecstatic when the announcement was made as part of the original game’s 10th anniversary celebration.


To reach the widest possible audience, Dragon’s Dogma 2 will be released on a variety of platforms. Platforms that have been confirmed include:

PS5, Xbox One, PC (through Steam), and Xbox One S

Fans will be able to enjoy the game on the newest gaming consoles and PC thanks to this multi-platform approach.


Itsuno, the game’s creator and director, hosted a special video commemorating the first game’s tenth anniversary, during which Dragon’s Dogma 2 was revealed. One of Capcom’s more creative marketing strategies, T-shirts featuring the game’s logo served as the first teaser. A first look at the setting, characters, and gameplay was unveiled in May 2023 with the release of the first official trailer.

Additional information about the world, characters, and mythical beasts that players will face in Dragon’s Dogma 2 was unveiled at the game’s November showcase.

The developers of Dragon’s Dogma 2 have promised an aesthetically breathtaking and immersive experience based on the RE Engine, which powers Resident Evil 7 and subsequent games. Exciting features such as the ability to climb and attack gigantic beasts were shown in the first trailer, along with vast environments, a variety of weapons and builds, and massive monsters.

Improved methods for Pawns to aid players in the environment, like giving a boost to climb ledges, are one of the new features highlighted in previews. Light and heavy attacks and a set of vocation-based skills seem to be the same as in the original, as do the combat mechanics.

The Covation Action mechanic gives each character class special skills, such as blocking for fighters and dodging for thieves, making the game more interesting and immersive. The Trickster profession, which grants the ability to conjure illusions to confuse foes or strengthen allies, is also introduced in the game.

A new and improved character and pawn creator is coming to the game, allowing players even more leeway to personalize their virtual selves.


Nothing is known for sure, but there are hints that it’s a complicated tale with political intrigue, kingdoms, wicked dragons, and destinies. The adventure begins in an underground prison, where the voice of a mysterious dragon echoes through the player’s hazy recollections. In the end, you want to kill the Dragon and take the throne—a long-lost destiny.


Some have speculated that, like the first game, multiplayer may use an asynchronous model, but details on this front are still sketchy. The trailers show huge groups of people fighting and interacting joyfully, so it’s not completely out of the question that full-on cooperative multiplayer is a possibility.
