After its gameplay reveal at the PlayStation Showcase, we’ve seen a lot of surprise people considering that Dragon’s Dogma 2 is adding multiplayer. That is to say, the option to play cooperatively with other players. However, there doesn’t seem to be any real basis for this speculation – especially since the game’s official website clearly states that it’s a single-player experience.
Indeed, at the bottom of the Dragon’s Dogma 2 home page, the following information is listed:
- Genre: Action-RPG
- Players: 1
- Release-Timing: TBA
- PEGI 18 provisional
we think This speculation regarding multiplayer started well before the announcement of Dragon’s Dogma 2. It’s no secret that the first Dragon’s Dogma flirted with the idea of co-op, but actually settled on its now trademark pawn system. Onions are essentially AI-powered companions that play a major role in the story and lore of the series. They are basically not-at-all-humans who aid Arisen (the player character) without question.
What’s more, Dragon’s Dogma Online – which never made it into the West – clearly promoted cooperation with other players as an MMORPG. Many believed that the Japan-only title would influence Final Dragon’s Dogma 2 in terms of multiplayer implementation.
But no, we fully expect Dragon’s Dogma 2 to expand on the pan system mentioned above, with more complex AI and party-based gameplay. The potential introduction of multiplayer doesn’t mean much if doubling down on one of the most defining features of Capcom’s property.
That’s hopefully cleared up, then. But would you like to see co-op as an option in Dragon’s Dogma 2? Or should it stick to being strictly a single-player adventure? Search your heart in the comments section below.
