Story

The action takes place in an open fantasy world filled with various kinds of mythical creatures, such as dragons, griffons, hydras, and harpies. The main storyline starts with an attack of a powerful dragon on the town the protagonist lives in. It turns out that the hero, called ďthe chosen oneĒ by the aforementioned beast, was the reason for the incursion. The reptile tears out his heart, but the Chosen One comes back to life, and it becomes his task to uncover the truth about his identity and to slay the dragon.

Apart from the campaign featured in the original, Dragonís Dogma: Dark Arisen offers an additional set of adventures in a completely new location, the cursed island of Bitterblack.

The enhanced edition is complemented by all the minor DLCs that came out after the launch of the basic version.

Starting out, we can create our very own hero, selecting gender and one of the available classes that will determine our play style to a large extent. In the game, we are accompanied by other player-created characters who provide valuable knowledge on some of the story quests.
