When Dragon’s Dogma Online was first announced, there were no doubt mixed feelings about Capcom’s latest online games venture. The game looks to be shaping up nicely, with players taking the role of the land’s guardians after the White Dragon gradually lost its powers. As you can expect, demonic creatures soon appeared, and three of them will be introduced below.
First off, there are the Orcs. These foul creatures attack in groups, armed with conventional weapons such as swords and axes. Do not underestimate them, as Capcom gave them the title of “Battle Demons” in the introduction. The Orcs will not just be swinging their weapons about and charge towards players, as they have actions such as leap attacks. Never face them alone.
A monster perhaps more fitting for “The Last Guardian”, the Colossus is a powerful humanoid which will not hesitate to smash players flat. It was mentioned that the Colossus is related to the Cyclops, but even more brutal. Sweeping enemies is its main attack, and players must climb onto its body to deal damage efficiently. Note that the spiky armour worn will damage players.
Finally, there is the Lindwurm, which certainly looks like a dragon monster straight out of Capcom’s other franchise, Monster Hunter. The attacks are awfully familiar, with a lightning attack which deals massive damage to players drenched in water. The Lindwurn loves to lunge towards players with its fast speed and shred enemies with its claws. It will not be a pretty sight.
Slated for release later this year in Japan (Western release not confirmed), Dragon’s Dogma Online is currently announced for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC platforms. Yes, Xbox One is nowhere in sight, given its disastrous sales. Capcom stated that the game will launch with a game world similar to the size of the original console version, and will eventually expand to three times bigger.
