Dragon’s Dogma Online is a free-to-play title for PlayStation 4, PS3, and PC Quote:
The 2015-due game will be a free-to-play action title with item micro-transactions for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC. It’s produced by Minae Matsukawa, directed by Kent Kino****a, and executive produced by Hiroyuki Kobayashi.
Players take on the role of an Awakened in the new land of Lestaria. You’ll be able to adventure with four-player parties (if you prefer to play solo, you can take three AI pawns with you), as well as chat, form parties, and spend free time in town lobbies with up to 100 people. There will also be a “Quick Matching” feature.
Dragon’s Dogma Online is similar to previous entries terms of combat. Clinging attacks remain present. Players will battle against big enemies in dramatic battles, and monsters can become enraged, leading to fiercer attacks.
Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono also adds that the game’s development is benefiting from the cooperation of Sony Computer Entertainment
- Development started with the basic desire of taking Dragon’s Dogma and making it playable in an online environment.
- The game couldn’t be made in tandem with Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen and was therefore pushed back.
- Capcom contemplated a monthly fee, but chose freeo-to-play in the end in an attempt to get more players to try it out.
- Though paid items are present, the game will still feel like a proper Dragon’s Dogma game.
- The story is completely new and there are no character connections. (Editor’s note: We take it this means no character connections to the previous game.)
- The game world will initially be the size of what players have come to expect from previous games, but will expand over time to be three times larger in scope.
- Parties are formed in the lobby, after which players depart for the field.
- An effort has been made to emphasize the strengths and traits of individual classes, but it’s not balanced so strictly that players need to be super meticulous about party makeup.

Sony paying all the bills for Capcom's games
Street Fighter V, Deep Down and now Dragon's Dogma Online.
I'm liking this partnership, I wonder what's next.
Still haven't played DD Arisen. It's in my PS+ backlog but this looks good from the scans.
I actually hope this works out well for Capcom and becomes what FFXIV is to Square.
