Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen Expansion Detailed & Dated

Players are invited to return to the realm of heart-stealing dragons and oddly implemented fast-travel on April 23 in Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, an expansion pack to the core game that is releasing both as a retail disc and digital download for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 for $39.99.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen includes all of the content from the original Dragon's Dogma game, and also moves beyond Gransys' mainland to Bitterblack Isle. This new world features an underground realm home to over 25 new enemy types. Existing Dragon's Dogma characters and saves can be exported to this new game and upgraded to use new Level 3 skills. Capcom says it listened to player feedback to improve fast travel and make menu navigation more intuitive. These improvements are retrofitted to the original game.

If you own Dragon's Dogma and purchase Dark Arisen, you will receive 100,000 Rift Crystals, unlimited Ferrystones, and six new Gransys Armor costumes.

Capcom offered a brief summary of other new features appearing in Dark Arisen.

  • Over 100 pieces of new equipment
  • All new high level weapons and armor sets
  • 14 new character/Pawn augments
  • New tiers of equipment enhancement
  • Increased character customization options
  • Item appraisal
  • Option to select Japanese voice over

  • I am definitely going to get this. I have been waiting for some new dragons dogma content
  • Looks real good. I've been meaning to pick up a copy of Dragons Dogma for some time now. Game-play like Skyrim mixed with Dragon Age I hear? Definitely makes me want to go get it right now.
  • I'll pick this up. Dragon's Dogma was one of the few things Capcom did right in 2012 and, despite it's flaws, was still my favorite game of last year.
  • Was going to buy the original so this is perfectly timed.
  • I tried this game out and really liked it. Now I just need to buy it...

  • So the download is 40? Or am I misreading this. If so it must be huge.
  • I hope we can see some new classes for the pawns at least - I would love them to be able to use the hybrid classes that our main character uses. Or maybe some new ones to mix it up a bit?

  • "Option to select Japanese voice over"

    best option ever. haha!

  • $40? Lol, no thanks. It won't take long for a price drop.

  • I just got Dragons dogma a week ago, and the only thing I didn't like was the no fast travel. So glad they're changing that

    Edit: So is this basically dragons dogma 1.5?
  • Glad that they are adding fast travel. Can't wait to get back into Gransys.

  • Day 1 purchase baby! I Don't know if I will be done playing Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate by then, but I am definitely getting this. I loved Dragons Dogma.

  • Crap. I currently don't have my copy...
  • So, my waiting has paid off. Good... now just one last thing: RELEASE IT FOR PC ALREADY! I understand Capcom, you were very nice about it with Resident Evil 6/Revelations and with DmC. But that begs the question -- why not Dragon's Dogma? It seems like it was made for the hardcore PC gamer. It's like a less crushingly brutal version of Dark Souls, with a more defined class system.
  • I wish it mentioned approximately how many added missions there will be.
  • NO way!!!

  • This looks great, they said there would be significant dlc coming, man I can't wait.

  • Mod
    I'd prefer this as a lower cost add-on instead of paying the full re-release price. As is I'll wait to see the reception; in the meantime I have most of the game to finish. ;) For those on the fence, DD is well worth it.
  • Been super interested in this game ever since Reiner said how much he loved it, this may be my chance to hop on!
