It has been quite a newsworthy day, but lets remember the generation we are still in for a minute. Right now, one of the finest Action RPGs that consoles have seen is set to release a full on expansion. I am of course talking about Dark Arisen ffor Dragon’s Dogma – and things are shaping up nicely for the add-on as a new trailer has been revealed, showing off some new enemies players will come across in the game.
What does this trailer hold?
Watch as a band of heroes descends into the depths of Bitterblack Isle and encounters the horrors below. 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; and 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.
I honestly put off playing Dragon’s Dogma when it originally released as I was too caught up in Skyrim. When you put the two side by side however, Dogma is the true winner as I have recently fallen in love with the game, and this new expanision is looking to tighten my relationship even further. Check out the clip below, and expect to see Dark Arisen on the Xbox 360 and PS3 on April 23rd.
