    Default PS4 | Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen



    Release Date: October 3, 2017



    The end of days is near, and dragons have returned to Gransys. Become the chosen Arisen and decide the fate of the world in Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, the critically acclaimed Action-RPG now updated for current generation consoles.

    Based in an epic fantasy setting, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen combines exhilarating and deep combat with the freedom to explore and interact in a rich, living and breathing world. Choose between nine different classes and embark on your own adventure along with three AI companions, known as Pawns. These allies fight independently, develop alongside your character, and can be shared or borrowed online in exchange for treasure, tips and more.

    Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen launches on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 3rd October, 2017 with improved high resolution visuals for consoles. This version contains the original Dragon’s Dogma along with all additional content from the Dark Arisen expansion, including the Bitterblack Isle area, filled with challenging new enemies and quests, and additional high level weapons and armor sets.

    FEATURES

    • Dynamic Combat – Cut off the four heads of a Hydra, climb atop griffins and fight airborne, or defeat dragons and other creatures by exploiting their weaknesses
    in exhilarating combat.

    • Epic Fantasy Setting – Travel to Gransys and beyond in a vast, richly detailed world, ripe for exploration.

    • Content Complete – Includes everything from the original game, along with all additional content from the Dark Arisen expansion.

    • Deep RPG Mechanics – Nine different vocations for players to choose from with a variety of skill options for each, armor that can be upgraded and enhanced, plus
    Pawn companions that can be trained to fit your desired combat style

    • Updated for Current Consoles – This new version features improved high resolution visuals
    RRP will be about half the regular AAA retail price, so maybe AUD$45 or something like that

    The best way to sum this game up though: it's an action RPG, made by the Japanese Devil May Cry team. If you're looking for an RPG with good combat, they don't come any better than this

    I might pick this up to play alongside D2, though I fear I won't get much game time.

    This is out soon ey? Still no word on 60fps?

    I loved it on PS3, if this had online co-op I'd be back in no worries. It would be killer with drop in/out co-op, if your friend can't get on then the A.I takes over control of the pawn. Maybe easier said than done but a party of four real players clamouring over a monster would be GOTY.

    Suppose you cannot transfer PS3 pawns or saves too.

    No word at all. Most recent comparison I've seen is this one:

    I am always disappointed by the lack of co-op in this - such a missed opportunity!

    I doubt I'll get it again, I'm not that arsed about graphics in games, it's nice to have pretty but not essential. Adding co-op would make me buy it as it would add a new gameplay element.

    Hmm, not much difference except a much better performance, no mention of Pro support or down-sampling.

    I think if it were in 4k or 60fps they would have it blasted over the splash screen. Hoping it is 4k/30 with an 1080p/60 option but not my getting hopes up. People playing this for the first time will never experience the matrix freeze frame-rate when Death comes calling, a twisted torturous thrill... So satisfying to kill.

    30 sec spot:



    It comes out this Tuesday, and is only $30.95 on the Aussie PlayStation store. If I see any better physical deals I'll post them in here.

    But it's so good Sarum, soooo gooood

    It's 1440p on the Pro too at locked 30fps. It controls so damn nicely, it feels like a 60fps game when it comes to responsiveness.

    That's talking about a different game (Dragon's Dogma Online). Unless you have Dark Arisen on PS4, your pawn ain't gettin' no love!

    Game is still missing this song. Not worth $30 or buying this generation. I'll wait for the PS5 Pro port.

    Still picked it up because when I first played it, it was wasn't long after playing Dark Souls which I felt was too similar.

    But now it's been a while and for $30 it was worth a second chance.

    What am I meant to do when I get swallowed by the Hydra?

    Would you want it to connect more often, or less often? When you sleep at an inn it gives you a hard checkpoint that's separate to a save file, it updates your pawn for everyone else (level, skills, equipment, etc.), and it checks for any RC and gifts if anyone else released your pawn.

    Otis and Sweet, I can't see your pawns for some reason. Do you have your games set to Online (in settings), and have you rested at an inn? I'm keen to get you guys some RC and quest/enemy knowledge

    I was close to picking this up tonight, had to stop because The Evil Within is this Friday and then Wolfenstein, not enough time. Study is getting a bit hectic as well hmmm.

    I think 2017 may be one of the greatest years in gaming imo.

    At this point games look so good, and surprisingly they are playing good as well, what a time.
