Dragon's Dogma demo coming next week, new trailer emerges

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 Live.

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.

    @ sh33phead- Yeah I had actually assumed it would be on PC right up until I talked to Brelston about it at the show. He seemed surprised that I had assumed that, but conceded that it definitely seemed like a game that would be on PC. Hopefully it'll make it's way there at some point, but I'll just content myself with playing it on 360.

    No PC release? Shame, looked worth a go.

    I got a chance to play one of the levels at PAX East this year, and I found it to be pretty damn fun. The combat is tight, the pawns are really fun to combo with, and the boss fight against the chimera was really cool. at one point I had to laugh because I'm pretty sure there were three of us just clinging to it, getting our hits in. Overall I thought it was great, and I'm looking forward to playing the other level too!

    I could get into this.

    This is how I envisage Newt Gingrich after his satanic ritual reincarnation by way of throat singing and circle-jerk. Actually, I have very little knowledge of who Newt Gingrich is, as I am from United Kingdomland. I picked up on the fact that democrats don't like him, and that I might muster up some friends (whatever the hell they are) who are into politics n' shit, therefore making me look semi-intelligent as opposed to the cunting shitstick that I am. SO FUCKING LAUGH.

    i was initially psyched about this game, but as time goes on it seems more and more like its gonna be just about going and fighting big enemies. nothing remotely interesting. every chance capcom gets to show it off they show another fucking boss battle. this game has slid waaaay down my list. give me risen 2 over this bossfight simulator.

    They're just showing the more significant fights because that's what a lot of people want to see, I think. I mean, it would be nice to see the regular combat sure, maybe some wild wolves or some equivalent enemy though.
