Dragon's Dogma 2 Release Date, Time, PC Specs, and Pre-Order Bonuses for the RPG

Hail, Arisen.

Dragon's Dogma 2

Dragon’s Dogma 2 is a sequel years in the making, a follow-up that builds off of the unique ideas found in Capcom’s 2012 cult RPG hit. Despite being a sequel, Dragon’s Dogma 2 features a mostly standalone story set in a new world split between two kingdoms: the human realm of Vermund and the Beastren-ruled Battahl. With a massive world to explore and dozens of quests to take on, players will want to hop into the sequel as early as possible. Here’s everything you need to know about the launch of Dragon’s Dogma 2.
