Dragon’s Dogma Dark Arisen full details revealed


Capcom has now detailed the previously announced Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, the expansion to the world of Dragon’s Dogma.

Dark Arisen is scheduled for release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on April 26 2013, and will be available on both physical disc and as a full game digital download.


Just off the Gransys mainland is the cursed Bitterblack Isle and it is here that gamers will discover an underground realm, complete with new terrifying foes to face and incredible treasure to find as they embark on an all new quest. Owners of the original Dragon’s Dogma will be able to export their existing characters and all other saved data, to continue their journey as the Arisen and face this new threat that has emerged from the cavernous depths.

Players will be able to take their characters to new heights, with brand new high-level skills and augments as well as all new weapons and armour sets. For those that missed Dragon’s Dogma the first time around, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen provides the opportunity to start their journey from the very beginning before tackling the all new content.

Dragon’s Dogma owners will also receive 100,000 Rift Crystals, unlimited Ferrystones and the Gransys Armour Pack consisting of six brand new costumes to use in Dark Arisen.
