For all those PC owners who were jealous of console players getting Dragon’s Dogma but it not coming to their platform, today we have good news. January 15, 2016 will see the release of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen on the PC.
When released, this will include all the content from the original release way back in April 2013. Alongside this will be content from the sequel, including the Bitterblack Isle area, new enemies and quests and added high level weapons and armoury. Pricing for the game will be 29.99 GBP/29.99 USD.
With Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen coming to the PC this will include higher resolution graphics with increased fidelity. Full Steam support is promised including Achievements and controller support, as well as keyboard and mouse, which is to be expected.
Set in an open world environment Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen will see you team up with three AI companions known as Pawns. These Pawns will find independently of you, but learn their style and ability from traits that you show during gameplay. PC owners will be able to share these Pawns online, which will provide them with treasures, tips and strategy tips on how to take down some of the bigger enemies featured in the game. Pawns will also be able to be borrowed to perform specific skills and challenging tasks.
Originally scoring 78 on Metacritic (based on the Playstation 3 score) the game was well received by both critics and players, so Capcom are obviously hoping for the updated version to be highly anticipated by PC fans who will now be able to play it. As the PC has more than its fair share of similar roleplaying games, it will be interesting to see if it can stand out from the crowd.
