Dragon's Dogma isn't due until May, but
next week Capcom is giving warriors a trial run with a playable demo
of the fantasy action role-player on PlayStation Network and Xbox
Due April 24 (April 25 in the UK), the
demo will consist of two quests; one pitting Fighters against a
Chimera in an underground location, and the other challenging Striders
to make quick work of a Griffin in the fields of Gransys. The test
run will also give players an opportunity to play with Dragon's
Dogma's character customization system and craft a hero which they
can later import into the full game.
Dragon's Dogma seeks to blend RPG,
action, and survival-horror elements in an open-world fantasy
setting. It is due for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on May 22 in North
America, and May 25 in the UK. See more from Capcom's action-RPG-survival-sandbox project in our 20-minute hands-on look, Dragon's Dogma video preview – creating a stubby elf-dwarf.
