Capcom has announced that the Dragon's Dogma demo will be landing next week, giving you a taster of the open-world monster-slaying high fantasy ahead of its May release, in which you assume the role of hero with faithful Pawns fighting at your side.

In the demo, you'll be given access to two of Dragon's Dogma's prologue quests in which you can fully customise your character, choosing from two of the game's classes (Fighter or Strider) and then venture forth to kill the Griffin and Chimera with your three Pawns in tow.

You'll then be able to port your created character across from the demo - which releases on the PlayStation Store from April 25th - into the full version of Dragon's Dogma when it launches on May 22nd in North America and May 25th in Europe. There's a new gameplay trailer from the Capcom Europe Blog below.

@1 Capcom ain't the only one, lol.

I'll be sure to download the demo. Even better, you can import your character from the demo to the full game :)

I can not wait for this game. When I found out about the day/night system, this game quickly became one of the top games on my list!

I'm glad there's a demo as I was hesitating about this title. I'll happily discover it next week. :)

@1 It's Disc Locked Content = DLC, call it what is; saying on disc dlc just sounds redundant now.

Think about it, say a 100kb unlock grants access to some huge expansion in a game, that would be considered disc locked content since it's all already on the disc, all you needed was to buy the key.

Now lets say you buy a real expansion that's let's say it's 2568MB and it's going to take a bit to download and upload, this is Add-on content, real extra content.

I'm not trying to bust your balls or anything either so please don't take it negatively, I just believe that we should all be informed since numerous companies insist on pulling the wool over our eyes in calling it something it's not.
DLC is no longer DownLoadable Content, we need to start calling it what it really is.

OT: definitely getting the demo still, been wanting to play this long before Capcom rubbed me wrong, standard treatment of their games aside this looks like it has potential.

I don't care if capcom does it but I do care if everytime I read an article about capcom people put half the game is on the disc because guess what capcom wasn't the first to do that and they won't be the last and u don't see capcom complaining if u don't buy their dlc or games they just make more so stop bitching and buy or don't buy its that simple don't go on every article to put DLC= disc locked content it just makes u look like ur an idiot and u have no life

Oh and this game looks like dark souls so first day buy for me

Awesome. A demo! Though I didn't need one because I was already sold on this game. I won't let a publishers shitty policies prevent me from enjoying such epic games and supporting the brilliant artists who create them.

Now we're just splitting hairs on what Capcom's DLC means.

Can't wait to play the demo and see if I'll commit or walk away.
