Dragon’s Dogma Demo Details and a New Trailer



This new trailer shows “all the ways in which you can grab on, climb up, hold on, pick up, and carry around.”

Capcom has just confirmed that the playable demo of the open world action–RPG, Dragon’s Dogma, will be available to download globally via the PlayStation Store on Tuesday, April 24 for NA, and on the European PlayStation Store the following day, Wednesday April 25.

Hit the jump for details on what you can expect to see.

With your party of three Pawns, the demo allows you to experience the different styles of two of the game’s character classes in two challenging encounters.

A melee specialist skilled in both attacks and counterattacks, as the Fighter you will make your way through underground tunnels and chambers before taking on the deadly Chimerain a Prologue quest, set before the events of the main game.

Swift and nimble, the Strider’s weapons of choice are bow and daggers, use them well if you are to defeat the mighty Griffin in the open plains surrounding the capital of Gransys.

Let your imagination run wild and design both your playable character and main Pawn using the game’s incredibly in-depth character creation tools before you take on the Griffin; purchasers of Dragon’s Dogma will then be able to export both these characters into the full game on its release.

Dragon’s Dogma is scheduled for release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in North America on May 22 and across Europe on May 25.

    Honestly, between this and Diablo III I can’t see how am I supposed to do anything else other than play video games after May.

    On a side note, I really like that we can use the characters created on the demo if we buy the game.

    Max Payne 3 (also May) will be awesome, but I’ll get that one later.
