Dragon’s Dogma 2 Demo Might Be Under Preparation

Intrigue surrounds CAPCOM's preparations for a Dragon's Dogma 2 release as a vigilant Reddit user, CannedBeanofDeath, unveiled a newly listed Steam app blessedly marked as 'free on demand'. While official word from the venerable Japanese game company remains elusive, historical patterns could suggest the imminent launch of a PC demo for this eagerly awaited sequel.

Reflecting on the dissemination strategies adopted for the original installment, the initial Dragon's Dogma graced the gaming community with a demo around one month before it made its grand entrance on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms. Should CAPCOM choose to tread a similar path, the countdown to Dragon's Dogma 2 demo could be nearing its conclusion, poised to make a splash within the current month.

The demo version of the first game was not shy in showcasing its marvels. It granted gamers full access to its intricate character creation engine and provided a first taste of two distinct Vocations in the midst of electrifying boss battles. This sneak peek allowed players the luxury of porting their meticulously crafted avatars into the full game, a feature that might find its way into Dragon's Dogma 2 as well.

With a release date of March 22, Dragon's Dogma 2 is primed to captivate audiences on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series S|X, entering the market at a price point of $70. This installment elevates the series with the assistance of the revered RE Engine, promising an open world of unprecedented scale—quadrupling the expanse of its forebearer.

Hideaki Itsuno returns to helm this creation, envisioning it as more than a mere game but a fantasy realm brought to life through meticulous physics and groundbreaking AI enhancements, particularly within the game's Pawn system. From the outset, adventurers can select from four fundamental Vocations, such as Archer, Fighter, Mage, and Thief, with the game teasing a roster that expands into Advanced Vocations, including the Mystic Spearhand and Magick Archer, among others. With some details still shrouded in mystery, CAPCOM hints at more surprises waiting in the vastness of Dragon's Dogma 2's world.
