Dragon’s Dogma 2 Director Hideaki Itsuno kicked off Capcom’s appearance at Tokyo Game Show 2023 with the first in-depth look at the game’s world. The roughly ten-minute video includes an explanation of the Pawn AI companions, some of the available vocations, and the two nations players will explore throughout their journey.
As revealed in previous videos, in Dragon’s Dogma 2, you will lead a party of up to three AI companions known as Pawns, including your custom main Pawn, and up to two additional Pawns that can be recruited from other players or offline. You’ll have to organize your party, ensuring that each member is able to properly use their individual strengths while countering your other party member’s weaknesses. At the start of the game, you’ll have access to four vocations: Fighter, Archer, Thief, and Mage. Players can change the vocation of their Arisen and main Pawn at any time by visiting Vocation Guilds throughout the world and unlock new vocations as they progress through the game.
Those vocations include the two revealed today that are available to the player-controlled Arisen in the Magick Archer and Mystic Spearhand. The Magick Archer has a versatile move-set capable of attacking, healing allies, or even learning a custom skill that unleashes a devastating attack over a wide area, in exchange for reducing their own maximum HP. As for the Mystic Spearhand, they make use of their unique Duospear and magick to attack enemies up close or from afar with punishing strikes or magick that can paralyze enemies or hurl multiple objects at them.
Dragon’s Dogma 2 is currently in development for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC via Steam.
