Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen Finally Lands On PC Next Year


With the announcement of an online, Free-To-Play addition of the Dragon’s Dogma series coming out in Japan, one had wondered what Capcom would do to Dragon’s Dogma for players in the West. Heck, even Dragon’s Dogma and its expansion, Dark Arisen, hadn’t made their way to PC yet! That mentality changes today, as Capcom has announced via press release that Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen will make its Western PC debut in January 2016. A specific date was not given

Dark Arisen brings Bitterblack Isle, new enemies, quests, weapons and armor sets to players, adding upon the lengthy campaign that already persists. The Steam release will support achievements, in addition to both Xbox One and Xbox 360 controllers and the traditional keyboard + mouse control schemes. It will retail for $29.99 USD / € 29.99 / £ 23.99.

Beyond transferring the content to a new platform, Capcom promises the PC version of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, “Will present stunningly high resolution graphics with increased fidelity.” Since the screenshots off of the media page output at a 3842 x 2160 resolution, the indication is that the new and improved game will support up to 4K resolution gameplay. It remains to be seen whether there will be much of an overhaul to the assets themselves, as opposed to just sharpening them up at these higher resolutions.

This news story serves as a subtle, yet disappointing reminder that we’re still waiting for Capcom to give us more information about Deep Down, despite hearing about two separate Dragon’s Dogma announcements in the same calendar year.
