today confirmed that new modes and content for Dragon's Dogma
will be made available in the coming months. Two new modes, Speedrun and Hard, will launch free of charge before the end of the year. Speedrun will challenge players to clear the game as quickly as possible with in-game equipment awarded for those who clock specific times; while Hard Mode turns up the difficulty with enemies that are tougher to defeat, but with the reward of further equipment.
Looking ahead to 2013 Capcom will release Dark Arisen, a major expansion to the game.
Update: three new screenshots
and a pair of video have been inserted in our download area.
