We’ve learned via Famitsu that Dragon’s Dogma Online is totally real.
Unfortunately for most fans of the series, your fears seem to be coming to life—it’s a freemium RPG with micro-transactions on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC. The game is being directed by Kent Kinoshita, produced by Minae Matsukawa, and executive produced by Hiroyuki Kobayashi.
The large Famitsu reveal details the core mechanics, namely that players can form parties of four, and that Pawn’s do exist as well. There will be lobbies that support up to a hundred people, where players can unwind and meet up.
The currently confirmed jobs are as follows: Fighter, Hunter, Priest, and Shield Sage. Naturally, you can change your job as you see fit. Character customization has been upgraded as well.
While the game does have lobbies, it is an open world experience. There will be a multitude of quests, some of which allow for larger parties of 8 to partake.
We’ll keep you guys posted as footage and screenshots arrive.
