In the realm of Dragon's Dogma 2, a somber silence has fallen upon the land. Fans of the highly anticipated sequel are mourning the loss of the endlessly repetitive voice lines that once echoed through the game's virtual world.
News recently broke that the developers at Capcom had gone to great lengths to ensure that the Pawns in Dragon's Dogma 2 would no longer subject players to the mind-numbing repetition of their chatter. In the first game, these Pawns were quite the talkative bunch. However, due to the limited number of voice lines available, players often found themselves bombarded with the same tired phrases, etching them into their minds like a never-ending mantra.
While it's understandable that Capcom sought to improve upon this in their action-RPG sequel, fans can't help but feel a pang of nostalgia for some of the more iconic Pawn voice lines that have now been lost. For instance, one player laments the absence of the ever-present and irritating phrase, "Wolves hunt in packs!" Although it was a repetitive annoyance, there was something oddly endearing about it.
Another Reddit response pays tribute to the Pawn's amusingly silly bark of "AUGH, SOAKED TO THE BONE." These quirky lines may have been repetitive, but they managed to carve a special place in the hearts of many veteran Dragon's Dogma players over the years.
Who could forget the classic Pawn advice of "Goblins ill like fire!"? It has been etched into the brains of countless adventurers who have bravely battled through the game's challenges. And let's not overlook the personal favorite of many: "It wishes to eat us, be ready!" This line not only showcases the Pawn's keen understanding of the creature's culinary preferences but also adds a touch of humor to the adventure. And we can't ignore the playful remark, "It bears the head of a cock," which has become a fun staple of the Dragon's Dogma Pawns, even if its explanation needs no further elaboration.
As the eagerly awaited Dragon's Dogma 2 approaches its release on March 22, 2024, for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S, players must bid farewell to these familiar voice lines that once filled the air. However, the silence left in their wake offers an opportunity for new experiences and fresh adventures in the sequel.
