New Vocations and more action await in the Arisen's second outing. Tune your eyes to the Dragon's Dogma 2 trailer here.

Capcom are ramping up the hype for the upcoming sequel to the cult classic Dragon’s Dogma once again. Shown off at Sony’s State of Play on Wednesday, the new action-packed trailer demonstrated all manner of monsters, magic and stabbing things in the head. There’s also dragons covered in glowing pustules and praying feline-humanoids. What a weird and wonderful series Dragon’s Dogma is.

Alongside combat and stunning vistas to gawk at, the new trailer provides us a glimpse of the new Warfarer vocation, vocation maisters and the Dragonsplague. Engulfing the world in disease that could lead to the end of times? Well, there’s your stakes, if you ever needed them. While the trailer may be short, it packs in plenty of detail worth viewing for yourself.

Warfarer

The Warfarer is a new Vocation exclusive to the Arisen that can use every weapon and learn different skills from each Vocation. By using diverse weapons, the Warfarer can respond to any situation and create combos that cross Vocational boundaries. The Warfarer’s lower base stats require them to utilize the situational strengths of different weapon types to be on par with other Vocations with specialized strengths.

Dragonsplague

Dragonsplague is a contagious disease-like condition that infects pawns as they travel between worlds.

Rather than being weakened, Pawns with the disease are said to display remarkable performance, and to become conspicuously bold in their speech and behavior. According to folklore, when the symptoms of dragonsplague reach a terminal stage, it will result in devastating calamity, but the veracity of those claims is unclear.

Vocational Mastery

On your travels, you will encounter vocation maisters who have mastered their chosen vocation to the fullest. By deepening your relationship with a vocation maister and gaining their approval, you can gain access to their Vocation, or they may grant you special tomes that teach skills of the highest order, the “maister’s teachings”. The Fighter maister, Lennart, has long served the fortress village of Melve.

With his exceptional swordsmanship and leadership skills, he has held the fort together to protect the land from the Dragon. Meanwhile, the Mystic Spearhand maister Sigurd hunts dragons for his own personal reasons. He is a quiet man with an inquisitive mind, and he constantly trains to improve his fighting skills and unique style. Formerly the court Oracle of Vermund, the Trickster maister Luz is currently in hiding out of fear for her life over speaking out against the false Arisen taking the throne.

Capcom

Even though it’s only just under two months until it launches, Dragon’s Dogma 2 still feels too far away. The beast mounting simulator launches March 22nd for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. Only a few weeks until we agonise over which vocations to prioritise and spend hours customising our Pawns for others to benefit from. We can’t wait.
