Dragon’s Dogma demo dated

Capcom today confirmed that its upcoming open world action-RPG, Dragon’s Dogma, will get a demo next week. Players will get a chance to the experience the different styles of two of the game’s character classes in two challenging encounters when the demo hits the North American PlayStation Store on Tuesday, April 24, and Europe on Wednesday, April 25.

You can play as the Fighter class, which specializes in melee attacks and counterattacks, as you make your way through underground tunnels and chambers before taking on the deadly Chimerain in a prologue quest set before the events of the game.

The demo will also put you in the silent shoes of Strider, a swift and nimble assassin-like character. Use a bow and daggers to defeat the Griffin in the open plains surrounding the capital of Gransys. You can design both your playable character and main pawn using the game’s character creation tool. If you purchased Dragon’s Dogma, you can take your characters from the demo to the full game when it releases on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in North America on May 22 and across Europe on May 25.
