Capcom confirmed that Dragon’s Dogma, its open world action title due to ship out in North America on May 22nd, 2012 and across Europe on May 25th, 2012 – will include access to a playable demo of Resident Evil 6, ahead of its release on Nov 20th, 2012.
Retail versions of Dragon’s Dogma will contain a redeemable token that will allow owners to download the Resident Evil 6 demo. Purchasers of the Xbox 360 version of Dragon’s Dogma will be able to redeem this token and download the Resident Evil 6 demo globally on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for 60 days earlier than any other platform starting on July 3rd.
Dragon’s Dogma introduces an innovative team system known as Pawns, these three AI partners fight independently, demonstrating prowess and ability they have developed based on traits learned over time from the player and their actions. By utilising the Xbox LIVE service, players will journey to the Rift where they can share their own Pawns with friends and be rewarded with treasure, knowledge of the world and strategies for taking down enemies. Conversely, players can borrow friends’ Pawns with the specific skills or experience required to tackle a particular quest.
In addition, Dragon’s Dogma will ship with thousands of ready-made Pawns for players to pick their allies offline when the game is released from May 22nd 2012.
