Scheduled for release April 23rd on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen will be available as both a physical disc and a full game digital download, delivering a brand new area, missions, enemies and more.
Just off the Gransys mainland is the cursed Bitterblack Isle where gamers will embark on an all-new quest to discover an underground realm, complete with new foes and treasure. Owners of the original Dragon’s Dogma will be able to export their existing characters and all other saved data to continue their journey as the Arisen, and face a new threat that has emerged from the cavernous depths. Players will be able to take their characters to new heights with brand new high-level skills and augments as well as all new weapons and armor sets.
