New Dragon's Dogma trailer shows off game's impressive NPCs

Here at GameZone, we see a lot of game trailers, and though many are easy to ignore, the Dragon's Dogma content has all been worth watching. This game looks incredible, featuring huge monsters, awesome combat, and plenty of open world RPG exploration.

Perhaps the coolest part of the game spotlighted by the trailer are the various NPCs, known as pawns, who will not only give your character quests, but actually follow along om the adventure. Each of them seems to have a unique personality, as well as a particular skillset to help vanquish foes in the game's many fields and dungeons.

Overall, this Japanese take on traditional Western fantasy looks very intriguing, and is definitely reeking with style. This game is among the GameZone staff's most anticipated titles. How about you?

Game info: Dragon’s Dogma introduces an innovative team system to the genre. Known as Pawns, these three AI partners fight independently, demonstrating prowess and ability they have developed based on traits learned over time from the player and their actions. By utilizing Xbox LIVE or PlayStation Network players will journey to the Rift where they can share their own Pawns with friends and be rewarded with treasure, knowledge of the world and strategies for taking down enemies. Conversely, players can borrow friends’ Pawns with the specific skills or experience required to tackle a particular quest. In addition, Dragon’s Dogma will ship with thousands of readymade Pawns for players to select offline.
