Capcom revealed exciting details about Dragon’s Dogma 2 during its presentation at the Tokyo Game Show 2023. At the Japanese gaming expo, attendees had the opportunity to try out a full demo of this new open-world adventure title.
Game director Hideaki Itsuno revealed in an exclusive interview with VGC that players will be able to explore the game’s vast universe without any restrictions or load screens. Itsuno stated, “In terms of world fluidity, there are no load screens when you’re exploring. Of course, if there’s a scene, we might load it and then return to free exploration, but when it comes to entering dungeons or caves and exploring different parts of the world, you will never see a load screen.” This innovation allows players to fully immerse themselves in the gaming experience and enjoy uninterrupted exploration.
Furthermore, Itsuno explained that the paths in the game are not strict restrictions but rather suggestions to help players navigate the world. These paths provide a general guide to direct players towards their next destination, but players are free to ignore them and explore the world at their own pace. Itsuno also mentioned that the game’s character artificial intelligence (AI) uses these paths as references to guide players.
Dragon’s Dogma 2 will offer players ample freedom to make their way through the game’s world. Players can follow the main path if they wish, but they will also have the freedom to explore areas off the beaten path and search for alternative ways to progress. However, there will be some limitations, such as the inability to climb flat rocks, although players will be able to access areas at their character’s height.
In summary, Dragon’s Dogma 2 promises an immersive and uninterrupted gaming experience, with total freedom to explore a vast open world without load screens. Players will have the option to follow the main path or venture off it, allowing them to live their own unique experience in this exciting adventure title.
