Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is getting a re-release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this fall, Capcom has announced.
While not detailed, it is safe to assume that the re-release will be a remaster of the original. We can expect improvements in the visual department, better stability, and perhaps a few tweaks here and there. There is no word on whether or not Capcom will be adding new content to make the commemoration of the fifth anniversary of Dragon’s Dogma more special this year.
It is possible that the remastered version will be showcased at E3 2017 next month. If we are very lucky, a release date will also be shared. Take note that the re-release will coincide with the PC version launching in Japan for the very first time.
Reclaim your heart in the epic Action RPG “Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen”. Coming to PS4 and XB1 this fall!

It was first released back in 2012 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, with the PC version arriving just last year. The action role-playing game was praised for its fulfilling combat and a rich world that carried no limitations for explorers. However, several technical issues made it appear as an unpolished release. Critics were vocal about the fact that Capcom could have made Dragon’s Dogma much more enticing.
There is still no sign of Deep Down, a cooperative dungeon crawler that was announced by Capcom back in 2013. It is widely believed that the project was canned sometime in the past couple of years. Most recently, Capcom renewed the trademark, which can only mean that the work is still in progress or the company was simply protecting its IP.
