Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen Expansion Detailed

By Ellis Spice, 3 years ago
The last we heard of "Dark Arisen", the upcoming expansion for Dragon's Dogma, Capcom were teasing details about what would be featured, including a new dungeon located in Bitterblack Isle and new enemies, such as Death himself. Now, further details have been released for this expansion to the game, which will now come out bundled on-disc with the original game.

"Dark Arisen" will feature over 25 new types of enemies within the underground realm of Bitterblack Isle, a new tier of skills for each character class and over 100 pieces of new equipment, including new high level weapons and armour. Players can also expect 14 new Pawn augments, new tiers of equipment enchantment and further options to customise your character.

Improvements have also been made to the gameplay, including easier travel and a more intuitive menu system. These improvements will be retrofitted to the original game for those who purchase "Dark Arisen". Owners of the original Dragon's Dogma will be able to carry over their save and will also be rewarded with 100,000 Rift Crystals, unlimited Ferrystones and the Gransys Armour Pack, which contains six new costumes.
