Announced way back in 2011, Dragon’s Dogma was released in 2012 for PS3 and Xbox 360, and re-released with the Dark Arisen subtitle a year later.

The latest version was finally made available for PC in 2016. Upon release, it became Capcom’s fast-selling game on PC and one of the top-three best-selling PC titles in company history along with Resident Evil and Dead Rising 3.

In 2013, the game's director Hideaki Itsuno expressed interest in developing a sequel, stating he already had a story and setting planned, and Capcom said later on feedback on the PC version could increase chances for a sequel. We have our fingers crossed, then.

An expanded and enhanced version of the original game, Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen includes a new zone to explore, all previously released DLC and patches, a very welcome fast travel system, new armor, weapons and quests.

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen will be released on October 3.
