The original Dragon's Dogma gained a strong fan following due to its open game world and unique action RPG mechanics, which is why the sequel is eagerly anticipated by fans.
While fans hope for improvements in the new game, such as enhanced graphics and innovative gameplay elements, it is important for Capcom to maintain the scope and charm of the original while introducing new features.
Dragon's Dogma fans should mark September 21st on their calendars as big news is expected. It has been a while since there have been major updates regarding the franchise's direction. Although Dragon's Dogma 2 was recently announced, many fans expressed their disappointment over the lack of concrete information about the sequel.
Many fans consider the original Dragon's Dogma, first released in 2012, to be one of the best open-world games. More than ten years later, the game has been re-released on newer consoles. These re-releases have reignited interest in the title and showcased how its gameplay remains timeless even today. With Dragon's Dogma's fantastic open game world and its unique approach to action RPG mechanics that most players know and love, the sequel would undoubtedly generate a lot of hype and interest.
According to a recent announcement from the official Dragon's Dogma Twitter account, the developer will showcase new gameplay footage and information about the previously announced Dragon's Dogma 2. The account revealed that Capcom will hold this presentation on September 21, 2023, at 7:00 AM Pacific Time during the Capcom Online program. It was stated that director Hideaki Itsuno will unveil all the new information on that day. Many fans will be excited to learn that new information will be revealed during the presentation.
Without further information beyond a brief trailer from the PlayStation Showcase on May 25th, many fans are hopeful that Dragon's Dogma 2 will improve upon the old engine. While the original game got many things right, a more powerful console in this generation can better utilize the hardware and introduce new gameplay intricacies and innovations. Not to mention advancements in how the franchise can progress and mechanics to enhance the quality of life. Similar genre games have already achieved success, so it would be wise for Capcom to take this into consideration.
In any case, Dragon's Dogma 2 appears to maintain the scope of the original game. It is up to Capcom to sustain the same level of enthusiasm and interest in the franchise. The developers should be mindful of balancing the new features and gameplay intricacies without removing the idiosyncrasies that made the previous game so enjoyable. Exploring how the new game connects with the old one should be considered, although it will be a challenge to enhance such a commendable engine without appearing stale, as has been the case with some sequels. As the 21st of September draws near, further news will be released to appease the excited fans throughout the community.
Dragon's Dogma 2 is currently in development for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
