This Autumn Capcom will be a launching a free-to-play title exclusive to PlayStation Vita.
Dragon’s Dogma Quest is reported to be an online-only 2D RPG, set in the same universe as last year’s epic open-world adventure. Players will be able to command their characters in battle and, by completing the game’s array of jobs, gain levels to develop their skills.
Parties can carry a maximum of four “Pawns” though fighting alongside a friend will boost this count to eight. Though not touched upon in the initial report, it’s likely that players will also have access to multiple class-types including fighters, rogues, and spellcasters.
Quests’ central focus is to deliver on-the-fly RPG gameplay that’s perfect in quick bursts. As a free-to-play title, Capcom will no doubt be pushing micro-transactions or maybe even a premium subscription to unlock elite equipment and additional content.
The publisher has yet to confirm a Western release.
