Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen Date, Specs

A new CapCom Unity post specifies January 15th as the release date for the Windows edition of Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, their open world action/RPG that was already expected in January. They celebrate the news with a new PC trailer as well as these minimum and recommended system specifications:
It’s a wonderful thing to see the dark-fantasy world of Dragon’s Dogma finally realized in 4K and running at silky-smooth 60 FPS. As a matter of fact, the framerate is uncapped, so if your rig surpasses the recommended specs below, just set the framerate to “Variable”, sit back and enjoy all the action.

Speaking of which, here are the Minimum and Recommended specs, as well as an all-out Performance spec list, if you wanna get fancy and run the game at 4K:

Minimum Specs:
OS: Windows Vista or newer
Processor: Intel Core i5-660 CPU or equivalent
Memory: 4 GB RAM
Graphics: Radeon HD 5870 or equivalent
DirectX: Version 9.0c
Storage: 22 GB available space
Sound Card: DirectX-compatible sound card or onboard audio chip
Additional Notes: 1) Supports Keboard + Mouse and XInput / DirectInput devices including Xbox 360, Xbox One, DualShock and Steam Controller. 2) Some high end integrated graphics chips and modern gaming laptops with a discrete GPU may work but have not been tested, nor are they officially supported by Capcom.

Recommended Specs:
OS: Windows Vista or newer
Processor: Intel Core i7-4770K or equivalent

No, the open world isn't really that large or dense and there aren't any of the pointless distractions modern games like to hurl at the player to inflate their duration. Prior to Dark Arisen fast traveling used rare and very expensive items, so much of the game was trekking from place to place and/or backtracking... but Dark Arisen nixed that.

It looks pretty fun, too bad they didn't go the HD remake route, as it's definitely showing his age.

Is this one of those 200+ hours games?

I'm quite looking forward to this. I gets compared to the Dark Souls series often and I adore those games, so I'm sure I'll love it. Hope the conversion is well done and KB/M support is better than the PC Dark Souls games but if not I hope it fully supports Steam Controller.

Well, I had been waiting on this game for a very long time to come out on the PC. I never thought it would. So glad they did.

So I picked it up on GMG for $23.10 with this 23 percent off Voucher. 23PERC-WTHGMG-ADVENT

Go and buy it, you just can't beat this price.

Oh I do like the occasional game but not for $60, not for $30 and not even for $20 unless it is really, really, really special.
For normal games and especially console ports like this one I'm not paying more than $9.99 for digital rent - the sweet spot is $4.99.
Give me a DRM-free (disc check max) retail copy or a GOG version so I can actually own the game and I might consider spending more but I'm not renting console ports for outrageous prices. Fuck that.

InBlack, I was in the same boat as you. Dark Souls was just to clunky feeling and I didn't enjoy it very much. As for Dragons Dogma it had some killer combat moves you could do with your henchmen and some other things that set it apart. One thing that did get a little old was you had to run all over the place, and at night if you got stuck outside it could get brutal.

I don't recall a BAD port from Capcom anytime recently. I'm just now going thru DMC, which runs smooth as silk and is WAY more fun than I've had with a game for a long time. Yes, the dialogue is super cheesy, but the game just wants you to have a grin on your face the whole time, and for the most part, it succeeds.

I've heard good things about D'sD, I probably will pick it up when I've cleared another couple of AAA titles out of my Steam list.

4K Resolution! 60 FPS! And console graphics they didn't bother to touch. And is there some reason they can't state the AMD specs? Yeah, I'm thinking this is going to be a very lazy and cheap port. Caveat emptor.

Eh? If it was a very lazy and cheap port, it wouldn't support 4K or an uncapped framerate. For lazy and cheap ports, see anything from Koei-Tecmo. Capcom is actually one of the few Japanese publishers that does a good job with their ports.

You're wrong as usual but whatever, I've learned from your pattern of posts that you can't be bothered to do 5 seconds of fucking reading or to use Google on any subject. There is an entire FAQ for the port on the steam page that details everything. It is an excellent port, several sites have preview copies and have commented on it already. They went above and beyond to accommodate the PC community which is why there is a lot of positive buzz for the game, well among people who can read.

The simple mechanics of this game are well beyond your grasp anyway so just fart off to bitch and moan somewhere else.

I don't even bother with Cutter any more he is the poster child for a Blues News hater / troll, which is saying something since there are several haters on this site.

Heh, just saw a 23% off code on GMG so picked it up for $23. Don't usually preorder, but this one looks pretty safe.

AND it's only $30! No excuse not to pick this up, it's one of the best games of recent memory.

I can easily find plenty of excuses to pick this up for $9.99 max. The no. 1 reason being that there will probably be no DRM free version, right? If I can only rent the game via Steam instead of own it via GOG or retail then they are not getting more than a tenner. Those fuckers.

Always seemed like such a cool and good game, but I had trouble getting into it on consoles due to the letterboxing and crappy frame rates. I'm really anxious to see this at 60 FPS at decent resolutions. The steam screenshots look much better than gameplay in the trailer.

Yet another game I'm looking forward to in 2016! That's Homeworld + Dragon's Dogma in January, XCOM 2 in February, probably missing something else, then The Division (half-heartedly) in.. April?

This looks like something I'd really enjoy. $30 is a really good price, but the cheapskate in me is wary of paying full price then seeing it on GMG for 15% off as soon as I pay. Even a 10% off on Steam would probably get me to pull the trigger.

Psyched.

While the Demon's/Dark Souls comparison isn't wholly inaccurate, it's not very good. At best, think of it as a more arcadey Demon's Souls.
