Understandably, many gamers are left quite perturbed when we get a notice of Day One or very-shortly-after-launch DLC being released. The logic is that we just paid for a game, so why was it missing content that was ready for launch day.
One game that has very clearly bucked this DLC trend is Capcom's Dragon's Dogma
. Fully revealed back December
, which was several months after the game's May release, the "Dark Arisen" expansion promised new customization options, new weapons, new enemies, and, perhaps most importantly, a huge new dungeon to explore. We then saw some screens and a trailer
. Most recently, we got a look at the addition's gameplay
Today, Capcom has released a trailer highlighting the spells that will assist players in surviving the dungeon on Bitterblack Isle.
"Dark Arisen" will be released on-disc on April 23th in North America for $39.99 and April 26th in Europe for £19.99/€29.99, with the digital version of the game arriving on Games on Demand sometime in this Summer. The release will also include the core game and the "Dark Arisen" expansion.
