Dragon’s Dogma 2 Character Creator Sets The Right Tone

Dragon’s Dogma 2 is one of the most anticipated games of 2024. Before the official release, Capcom decided to give players a taste of the game, but not in the form they were expecting.

Instead of a traditional gameplay demo, Cacpom has released a character creator for both PCs and consoles. You can download this character creator right now from your respective stores right now, and it’s around 5GB in size. The demo character creator will allow you to create your main character and main pawn. There are 5 slots each for your main character and pawn so that you can experiment a bit. And yes, once the game releases, you can transfer your created characters to Dragon’s Dogma 2 full version. Character creation can be a time-consuming process, so Capcom is giving you the option to save that time before release and be ready to dive right into the game once it’s released. I am hoping that the character transfer process will be seamless without any complexities.

When I heard the news, I also wanted to try out Dragon’s Dogma 2 character creator. Character creation in the first game was fairly detailed, and I wanted to see what the developer had improved this time. I wasn’t disappointed. I created one character and one pawn, and it took one hour. I didn’t even tweak all the available options. I think I will create one character for each Dragon’s Dogma 2 vocation (class) so that I am ready to pick once the game is released.

I think I will pair a mage (my main character) with a fighter who will tank for me. Whatever main class you choose, having a Fighter as your main pawn is always going to be beneficial. I am sure that with the details we have in Dragon’s Dogma 2 character creation tool, players will create some great-looking characters. Players have already shared their creations, and you can check platforms like Steam forums and Reddit to see those crafty creations. Dragon’s Dogma 2 looks like a game with great potential for modding; however, with the DRM (most probably Enigma) in place and Capcom’s general stance about modding, that might not happen anytime soon.

I took some screenshots as well while creating my first Dragon’s Dogma 2 character which you can check below:

In the character creator, you will first be asked to select whether you want to create your main character or your main pawn. After selecting the race and changing the appearance of your character or pawn, you will select the vocation, select a voice, and ultimately name your character. For Pawns, you will be able to choose the inlination as well. Dragon’s Dogma 2 will only allow players to have one save file, so you will need to be sure of what sort of character you want to play for your first playthrough.

Note: Dragon’s Dogma 2 has Moniker naming concept just like the first game so you can choose from the Monikers from the pre-defined list. This ofocurse is to prevent players for naming the characters in unmoral ways. Also, Capcom has mentioned that there will be more Graphic options with full release so expect more customization options

Overall, the character creator in Dragon’s Dogma 2 is great and sets the right tone for the game and it gives fans something to work with as they wait for the full release. Dragon’s Dogma 2 is scheduled to release on March 22, 2024, for PC, Xbox Series, and PlayStation 5.
