The menagerie of monstrous creatures included in Dragon’s Dogma is as impressive as any action RPG before it as players are tasked with cutting down enemies ranging from stout imps to towering dragons, but the upcoming standalone expansion to Capcom’s game will add even more ‘delightful’ denizens of the deep to contend with.
The latest gameplay video for Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen showcases a new category of creature, Necrophagous beasts, monsters that are “drawn to the scent of decomposing flesh and can appear seemingly from nowhere.” Here’s Capcom’s blow-by-blow account of the action in the trailer with names and descriptions of each beast we’ll see:
“After successfully defeating a ferocious Cockatrice, these stalwart warriors will encounter Necrophagous in various forms. Garms, a band of ravenous twisted lupine beasts that spew a blinding fog, descend on the carcass of the Cockatrice and attack the party.”
“[An] Elder Ogre, a larger and deadlier form of its surface dwelling cousin, squares off with the party in a dark hallway; most fearsome of all, the Cursed Dragon, twisted into a truly wretched foe by the darkest of magicks, bears down on the group, seeking to devour any flesh it can.”
Watch the action unfold below:
