Surprise: 2013’s Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen hits PC in January

Capcom’s fantasy RPG Dragon’s Dogma hit Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in 2012, followed by the expanded Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen releasing  in 2013. Now Dark Arisen is finally hitting PC a full two years later, Capcom announced this week.

In a press release, the company announced that the game will feature Xbox One and 360 controller support in addition to standard keyboard and mouse controls and will sport “stunningly high-res graphics and improved fidelity.” It’ll also include full support on Steam.

Dragon’s Dogma was one of my favorite games in 2012 – a challenging, fun, and sprawling action RPG that captured some of the flavor of Dark Souls in a slightly less intimidating package. I ended up playing through it twice in its entirety before doing so a third time for the Dark Arisen expansion. I’ll admit it – the upcoming PC release has me considering a fourth playthrough.

Despite Dragon’s Dogma‘s surprise success, the developer hasn’t announced a standard sequel. Dragon’s Dogma Online is out in Japan on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC with no word on a U.S. release. With the company’s current focus on remakes and free-to-play games, such a sequel seems unlikely right now.

In the meantime, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen hits PCs in January for $30. Screenshots above depict the Xbox 360 edition of the game.
