The lights are on
Looking for an excuse to strap on your pointy shoes and return to Gransys? Capcom has announced a pair of DLC offerings that might give you a reason to return to the game's open world.
The first reveal is an expansion called Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen. Capcom isn't saying much about it, but it looks like a new dungeon area filled with skeletons and at least one black, scabby-looking dragon. It's set for a 2013 release date on PS3; Capcom notes that the update's concept hasn't yet been approved by Microsoft.
The other DLC is coming before the end of the year, and it will cost you exactly nothing. It adds two new modes, speedrun and hard mode. They're both exactly what they sound like. In speedrun mode, players must beat the game as quickly as possible to ascend the game's leaderboards. Hard mode is...harder. The names are pretty obvious, but don't think that Capcom has lost its knack for being obtuse. Dark Arisen's tagline is "An epitaph speaks of another's demise." What would you expect from the makers of something called "Dragon's Dogma." (Note: the game is still great.)

Microsoft hasn't approved of the concept???HUH??? Has the awesomeness of this game left them petrified? None the less,if I were them I would jump on this,the 360s library is quite limited when it comes to games like this.
I've been holding on to the game waiting for some solid DLC. I'm glad to see Capcom is working on it.
Sweet! I had to put DD on the shelf for a while, but I'm definitely going to pick it up again.
I'm on my second play-through right now, and this game still surprises me.
YES! More dragons Dogman for FREE?! I love! MORE DRAGONS DOGMA! MORE DARK SOULS! They are both challenging in their own right.
