Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen heads to PS4 and Xbox One this fall
On the official Facebook group and via Famitsu, Capcom announced their ambitious open-world action RPG Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen will be coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime this fall. This is in commemoration of the series' 5th anniversary which was celebrated on May 22. Not much more details were shared, but they also said Dark Arisen would be coming to PC in Japan (it's already available on the platform in the west).
If you'd like to know more, check out Alex's glowing review of the PC release for Dark Arisen, which this version will likely be based off of. You can check out an excerpt of it below. Hopefully, the success of this move inspires Capcom to release Dragon's Dogma Online over here sometime.
What's gained out of this is simple - Dragon's Dogma's excellent battles, particularly those with larger beasts, are far more enjoyable. The incredible soundtrack blasts as you clamber up the neck of a griffin or some such creature in order to stab it where it hurts the most. The creature thrashes about in an attempt to throw you off, but now rather than choppiness as the camera whips about and spells fly, everything is now silky smooth. You feel like an utter bad ass, and despite the age of the game the excitement of these sections still holds up brilliantly.
