Square Enix has posted a big update to the official website for Dragon Quest XI: In Search of Departed Time, introducing a new character, Silvia, and details on towns, fields, and dungeons. 


Towns are where intimate information and convenient facilities come together. Talk to the people of these towns, collect information, purchase items and equipment, ready yourself for your next adventure and set your sights on your next destination.

Towns and villages have many cultures and natural features.

There are lots of people living in these crowded bustling cities!

Gather new information by speaking directly to the people of the town and hear their stories.

Hear the voices of these people through speech bubbles of those nearby.

Troubled people can also be seen at a glance with the speech bubble, how convenient!


Convenient facilities are located in towns to help you along your adventure.


Dragon Quest XI has vast environments from grasslands to snowy fields spread out across the world, all full of a variety of monsters. You may notice changes based on time of day and even the weather, so get out there and search every corner of these areas.

Explore various fields such as plains and coves

Even monsters show up at night!

Sometimes you’ll have to squeeze yourself across narrow footing and traverse steep streets!

Look out for things that sparkle to obtain various items!

There exist various types of these sparkling objects in the world. You can crush rocks to get ore, or shake a tree to get its fruit.

Ease your travels by riding on a horse


Dangerous grounds where monsters and treasures can be found. There are valuable treasures within these dungeons, some which are safe guarded behind powerful bosses. Make sure to prepare well before setting out to explore!

Mysterious temples and caves, as well as harsh trials!

Traps and tricks stand in your way! A test of your wisdom and courage!

Is it treasure that awaits you? Or something else…?!

Traverse through these dangerous areas!

Woah, look out! Be sure keep an eye out for traps and other gimmicks!


From time to time you can find remnants of bonfires out in the fields where you’ll be able to stop and make camp. While camping, you can save your game as well as rest and recover your strength. Camping serves as a great resting point while out on your long adventures.

Check in with your friends and plan your next destination, or visit the traveling merchant.
