Teased earlier this month after trademark applications were spotted, Capcom finally announced Dragon’s Dogma Online recently, which will be launching as a Free-to-Play online game on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC platforms later this year. There were rumors circulating about the game not making it to the English market despite the trademarks, but nothing is confirmed now.
Similar to Monster Hunter Frontier, Dragon’s Dogma Online will use an instance-based game world, with a main city acting as the lobby. Each instanced city can contain up to 100 players, where they will be able to find party members, trade and chat. Each party is limited to just a maximum of 4 players, which seems pretty restricted in my opinion.
However, with just 4 players, it means parties must co-operate really well (usage of skills, traps etc) to take down the tough bosses. Veteran gamers and even Monster Hunter fans must be loving this feature. More game details to be revealed in the near future!
