Capcom has announced that Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, best described as one part Dark Souls and one part Devil May Cry, is getting a PC release. The trailer below, from the game's console launch, is entirely in Japanese. Action knows no language, though.
Capcom's open-world hack-a-thon revolves around a dragon, who conveniently names the player as "the chosen one"—and you know what? You're not in this for the story. The combat system is the star of the show. Players can choose from one of nine vocations, which are basically classes. Vocations range from the melee-brawler Fighter or Strider (ninja!), to the archer-style Ranger, to the magic-wielding Sorcerer. Every
class vocation has its own set of strengths and weaknesses.
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen also has a unique take on the other members of a party: all of the main character's companions are rented, AI-controlled Pawns which players can order around. These Pawns can be sent off to fight alongside your friends online, and Pawns will then bring their masters money and items as rewards for loaning them out.
For the PC release, Capcom promises greatly enhanced visuals, support for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One controllers, and a full keyboard and mouse control set. Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen will be available on Steam for $30 when it launches in January 2016.
