A whopping 1.5 GB demo for Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma has just arrived on Xbox LIVE Marketplace, giving you a chance to jump headfirst into a slice of the incredible open-world action RPG adventure that awaits us.
Here’s the official word on what we can expect in the demo for Dragon’s Dogma:
“Whet your appetite with a taste of the high fantasy, open world action that Dragon’s Dogma has to offer in this demo. Battle as an Arisen of the past or rid the countryside of a fearsome magickal beast—the choice is yours.
“Use the robust character creation tool to customize your Arisen and main pawn, play them in the Countryside Quest now, and import them into the full game later. From height to hairstyle, eye color to nose shape, mold your heroes as you see fit.”
If you need to know more about this ‘Arisen’ person and the pawns, you can read over our eyes-on preview of the game when producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi walked us through the different features and innovative ‘Pawn’ system, too.
Our previous coverage of Dragon’s Dogma, including the latest Captivate screenshots and trailers, can also act as your crib notes. Also, did you see the announcement of the ‘chrome’ Xbox 360 controllers? With Dragon’s Dogma DLC? They look lush!
Queue up your download of the Dragon’s Dogma demo on Xbox LIVE Marketplace over here. It’s currently only available to Xbox LIVE Gold subscribers, however.
Keep in mind that this Dragon’s Dogma demo will also become available on the PlayStation Network today (in the US) and tomorrow (in Europe).
Note: It appears as though the Dragon’s Dogma demo isn’t quite ready for prime time on South African Xbox LIVE – if you find it when it goes up later, let us know below.
