I have to admit that I did not finish Dragon’s Dogma, but the game has got me gripped for the few hours that I dedicated to it. But if you couldn’t play the latest expansion because it was not available on your most accessible platform, you are in for great news. Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen surprises PC players with 2016 release and for a very good price as well: only $30. The game is going to be released in January next year.
It was a very good move made by Capcom, who initially launched the game back in 2012 for all platforms: PC, Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. Dark Arisen came along later, in 2013, but it only hit the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, leaving all PC players disappointed and unable to continue their beloved story. So it looks like Capcom empathized with their community and made a step forward.
The new version for the PC was only announced today and Capcom mentioned that it will support all types of control: keyboard, mouse, Xbox one and Xbox 360 gamepads all together. We all know that console games redesigned for the PC have that “feeling”: you can’t fully rotate your character properly, there’s a minor delay when you give a command, you can practically see that the game was made for a console and not for your keyboard.
So Capcom made sure that you can play the game however you want. On top of that, the company also declared that the game will feature “stunningly high-res graphics and improved fidelity”. Not only are we going to be able to play the game how we want to play it, but it is also going to look way better than the Xbox and PlayStation versions. And we have to admit it: those look pretty good.
Dark Arisen’s PC version will have full Steam support, mostly because Capcom knows that the expansion brought a lot of “supplemental content”. The game that was released back in 2012 is quite different now, since Dark Arisen has brought along new features, armor sets, weapons, quests and regions to explore.
So it is best that you get your gaming gear ready because Capcom labeled this expansion as “the definitive Dragon’s Dogma experience”. Make sure that your PC is ready for January 2016 and save those extra $30 for the game. But if you want to experience a more immersive Dragon’s Dogma game, you might also want to look into Dragon’s Dogma Online, which is, for the time being, out only in Japan for PlayStation 4, 3 and the PC.
