Capcom have announced a new game mode that will be included in their upcoming fantasy RPG Dragon’s Dogma. Event Mode will be available on day one and it tasks players with attacking a significantly powerful enemy the Ur-Dragon. The Ur-Dragon is almost impossible to kill on your own and as such every attack landed by players that are connected to the internet will go towards taking down this colossal beast.
More details from the official press release below:
Legend tells of an immensely powerful dragon that appears in the Everfall beneath Gran Soren.
Known as the Ur-Dragon, this is the challenge that awaits Dragon’s Dogma owners. Players and their parties of Pawns from around the world can compete collectively online in an asynchronous encounter against the Ur-Dragon via Xbox LIVE or PlayStation Network. The effect of each party’s attacks will be combined, but be warned its immense strength means it will take multiple encounters before the Ur-Dragon finally falls. Be the one that deals the fatal blow and receive the maximum reward, but regardless all players can still obtain both common and rare items dropped by the Ur-Dragon when they inflict damage.
Players without an online connection can also take on the Ur-Dragon alone, but the rewards will be different to those received online. All slayers of the Ur-Dragon will have their names and play times recorded in a hall of fame for others to view and aim to beat.
Dragon’s Dogma is due to be released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on 25th May in the UK. Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to the game’s release.
