Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen details revealed
Company: Capcom
Following the announcement of Dragonís Dogma: Dark Arisen last year, we are now pleased to confirm concrete details about this expansion to the world of Dragonís Dogma. Scheduled for release on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 from April 23 in North America and April 26 across Europe, Dragonís Dogma: Dark Arisen is the next exciting chapter in the Dragonís Dogma franchise. Available as both a physical disc and a full game digital download, Dragonís Dogma: Dark Arisen delivers a huge brand new area, missions, enemies and more, plus all of the content from the original game.

Just off the Gransys mainland is the cursed Bitterblack Isle where gamers will embark on an all-new quest to discover an underground realm, complete with new terrifying foes and incredible treasure. Owners of the original Dragonís Dogma will be able to export their existing characters and all other saved data to continue their journey as the Arisen, and face a new threat that has emerged from the cavernous depths. Players will be able to take their characters to new heights with brand new high-level skills and augments as well as all new weapons and armor sets. Furthermore, owners of the original Dragonís Dogma will receive 100,000 Rift Crystals, unlimited Ferrystones and the Gransys Armour Pack consisting of six brand new costumes for free, upon purchasing Dragonís Dogma: Dark Arisen.

For those that missed Dragonís Dogma the first time around, Dragonís Dogma: Dark Arisen provides the opportunity to start their journey from the very beginning before tackling the all-new content.

Based on player feedback, Dragonís Dogma: Dark Arisen will make the Dragonís Dogma gameplay experience even more satisfying with improvements such as easier travel and a more intuitive menu system. For those who already own Dragonís Dogma and then purchase Dragonís Dogma: Dark Arisen, these improvements will be automatically retrofitted to their original game save data.
