Although Dragon’s Dogma received a very positive review from yours truly, and although I never found the game difficult by any means, apparently the title is difficult for a large number of gamers. If you happen to be one of these gamers who is unable to progress further in the game then Capcom is about to throw you a bone.
A patch for the Japanese version of Dragon’s Dogma will be released August 6th and with this patch an Easy mode will be implemented. This Easy mode will allow players to switch difficulties via the option menu whenever they want. Currently this patch has no release date for Western versions of the game, though one can expect such a patch soon.
