Dragon's Dogma demo will allow you to slay beasts next week


We all know you're itching to slay some dragons and wild monsters in Capcom's upcoming action RPG, Dragon's Dogma. Thankfully, you won't have to wait until the game's release which is on May 22 to give the game a test drive.

The demo will officially land on Tuesday, April 24th on both Xbox Live and PSN. For those in Europe, they can download the demo the following day, Wednesday, April 25.

With your party of three Pawns, the demo allows you to experience the different styles of two of the game’s character classes in two challenging encounters. A melee specialist skilled in both attacks and counterattacks, as the Fighter you will make your way through underground tunnels and chambers before taking on the deadly Chimerain a Prologue quest, set before the events of the main game. Swift and nimble, the Strider’s weapons of choice are bow and daggers, use them well if you are to defeat the mighty Griffin in the open plains surrounding the capital of Gransys. Let your imagination run wild and design both your playable character and main Pawn using the game’s incredibly in-depth character creation tools before you take on the Griffin; purchasers of Dragon’s Dogma will then be able to export both these characters into the full game on its release.

I'm fairly excited to see how Dragon's Dogma is shaping up, since the action RPG/Fantasy genre is relatively new to Capcom.
