‘Dragon’s Dogma’ Demo Dated

You can try out Capcom’s open world fantasy action game next week in the U.S. and Europe.

The upcoming demo, hitting the PS3 and Xbox 360 on April 24th in the U.S. and the 25th in Europe, will allow you to test out two of the game’s character classes—the Fighter and the Strider. Your character—along with your two Pawn support characters—will take on two of the giant beasties from Dragon’s Dogma in a prologue story.

Most interesting here is that the demo will allow players to use the game’s character creation kit to build their own character which they can then export into the final game when it’s released at the end of next month.

Here’s the official synopsis for Dragon’s Dogma:

Dragon’s DogmaTM is an exciting new franchise which redefines the action genre from the team that produced some of Capcom’s greatest action games. Set in a huge open world, Dragon’s Dogma offers an exhilarating and fulfilling action combat game with the freedom to explore and interact in a rich, living and breathing world.

Dragon’s Dogma introduces an innovative team system to the genre. Known as Pawns, these three AI partners fight independently, demonstrating prowess and ability they have developed based on traits learned over time from the player and their actions. By utilizing Xbox LIVE or PlayStation Network players will journey to the Rift where they can share their own Pawns with friends and be rewarded with treasure, knowledge of the world and strategies for taking down enemies. Conversely, players can borrow friends’ Pawns with the specific skills or experience required to tackle a particular quest. In addition, Dragon’s Dogma will ship with thousands of readymade Pawns for players to select offline.

With an epic story and incredible action, Dragon’s Dogma is set to be one of Capcom’s newest hit franchises.

Dragon’s Dogma will be hitting the PS3 and Xbox 360 on May 22nd in the U.S. and May 25th across Europe.
