Just ahead of the Dragon’s Dogma 2 showcase tonight, the release date for the long-awaited action role-playing game was been leaked by Steam – It’s now been confirmed by Capcom.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 will be coming out on 22nd March 2024.

You can watch the full stream with the new Trickster class revealed as well.

The Trickster is something akin to a necromancer, able to use a Censer – like an incense holder mixed with a flail – to conjure up smoke that can trick enemies into fighting one another. It’s a really intriguing class that I’m sure many players will delight in delving into.

Just as in the original the role playing and combat is built around having a single controllable hero character – the Arisen – and then pawns to follow and support them to try and feel like a co-op game in some ways. You can have a party of up to four characters, with a main pawn and two more general support pawns by your side. They’re controlled by AI, but have been improved with better decision-making in battle and will be more helpful to guide and point things out while exploring. They’ll also high-five you.

The game is still an action RPG, so you’ll be getting stuck right into the action, with your vocation determining if that’s with swords or magicks – there will be new vocations in the game – but Dragon’s Dogma 2 has been enhanced with more realistic physics and interactivity. Attacking larger monsters, they’re more physically based, so attacking a leg can drop them to the floor with a bang, and they can attack a bridge that you’re stood on, which will then break up realistically. New monsters will include Medusa, which…. let’s just speculate you might want to avoid her gaze?

Two new characters will be integral to the game, as featured in the key art. Ulrika is a bow wielder that has a connection to the Arisen, while Nadina is a high priestess of the beastren, which appear for the first time as cat-like creatures. They’ll impact your options and fate through the game.

Not long to go now, with Dragon’s Dogma 2 arriving across PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC in just four months!
