Dragon's Dogma Online coming to PS4, PS3 and PC as a Free to Play game
Capcom is bringing Dragon's Dogma Online to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC as a free-to-play online action game.
According to a translation of Famitsu's report by Gematsu, Dragon's Dogma Online will play like other Dragon's Dogma games, but in an online environment. Players can group up in parties of four for open-world adventures and battles against giant enemies. Groups can be formed in town-based lobbies that can hold up to 100 players, and Capcom will provide a "quick-matching" feature to easily form groups.
Dragon's Dogma Online will reportedly be supported by item-based microtransactions. Capcom previously experimented with Free to Play mechanics in another game in the series, Dragon's Dogma Quest for iOS and PlayStation Vita.
Dragon's Dogma Online is being directed by Kent Kinoshita, a producer on the original Dragon's Dogma and executive produced by Hiroyuki Kobayashi, lead game designer on original Dragon's Dogma. Minae Matsukawa, a producer on Capcom's Ace Attorney series, will serve as producer. The game has a 2015 release date.
