Capcom reveals Ur-Dragon event mode for Dragon's Dogma
If you didn't think Dragon's Dogma was going to have any sort of online mode, think again.
Capcom has just announced today the inclusion of a new mode, Ur-Dragon. While not a true online mode often found in most multiplayer games, this challenge presents players with something quite extraordinary.
Ur-Dragon is the name of an immensely powerful dragon that appears in the Everfall beneath Gran Soren. Players can compete with their Pawns in a leaderboard of sorts via PlayStation Network or Xbox Live in an effort to down the creature. Each party's attacks will be combined, but the Ur-Dragon's extreme strength ensures you'll have to fight it more than once. Deal the fatal blow and gain the top reward. The Ur-Dragon will also drop common and rare items for the remaining players.
Don't have an internet connection? No problem - you can still fight the Ur-Dragon but the rewards will be somewhat different.
The Ur-Dragon challenge will be available on launch day in North America on May 22 and across Europe on May 25.
