Grabbing and Scaling Mechanics

Interact with your enemies more than just by smacking them in the face. In Dragon's Dogma, you and your pawns have the option to grab and throw enemies, people, and certain items. Try your luck lobbing an explosive barrel at an enemy or combo a magick fire attack with an oil bottle your pawn just threw. Defeat enemies in style by grabbing and throwing them into environmental hazards or attack an enemy while your pawn has it grappled.

Larger monsters, particularly bosses, can be scaled, allowing you to climb on and attack a monster without it being able to reach you, and in some cases, hitting its weak spot. When doing any of these actions, do remember to keep your stamina in check.

An Open World Fantasy Setting

Delve into the land of Dragon's Dogma and enjoy the sights of Gransys. On your travels, you will come across the quiet village of Cassardis, the dark halls of the Everfall, and many other ambient environments. Enemies such as goblins and harpies will stand in your way, and you will face off with powerful bosses like a chimera, a hydra, and eventually, the Dragon.

As you progress through the story, discover new places, and meet new people, you will open up more quests, encounter a wider variety of enemies, and gain access to new items. Explore the open world at your own pace - look for hidden chests, buy rare items at peddlers, farm materials to upgrade your equipment, get those side quests done before tackling the main quest. With 50 hours of main quest content and an additional 70 hours of side content, there is never a dull moment.


NPC Pawn System

Online play in Dragon's Dogma comes in the form of hiring pawns created by other players. By exchanging player IDs, you and your friends can enjoy the story with each other's created characters, even when you're not playing at the same time.

Alternatively, you can search for other player's pawns by level or vocation depending on your party needs. A list of the most popular pawns is conveniently provided, and if there were any that particularly struck your fancy, you can go through your history tab and rehire them at a later time. If you're playing offline, no worries. There is a pool of pawns provided by the game to help you on your journey.

Class Based RPG in 3rd Person Perspective

Select your fighting style in Dragon's Dogma by choosing between different vocations. Prefer a tanky hack and slash experience? Roll with Fighter. More of a dextrous glass canon? Strider sounds right up your alley. Or perhaps you enjoy the magick support playstyle? Sounds like you're a Mage. Later in the game, you will be able to access more advanced versions of these core Vocations and even hybrid variations.

If you wish to try out a new way of fighting, you can change vocations at the city of Gran Soren for a price, but once you have purchased a vocation, you can freely swap between those you own. Each of your pawns will have their own vocation too, so there is lots of variety when building your party.

If you're still undecided on what vocation to pick, you can choose based on what weapons you want to fight with. The weapons that are available to you are based on your current vocation. Depending on your vocation and what equipment you have on, your role in the party changes. Learn more about choosing the right vocation for you here.
